    Lionel Richie Disapproves Of Kanye West's "All Day" Performance

    Kanye West recently debuted his newest single "All Day" at the 2015 Brit Awards. The Awards ceremony, which was streamed live in the U.K. via ITV, was supposed to be censored for television. Censor Kanye West? Never a good idea. Though reports say Kanye was told to perform a T.V.-friendly version of "All Day," he instead performed the song in its entirety, expletives and all. Though ITV attempted to selectively censor the performance, they ended up muting Kanye intermittently, while still allowing a few expletives to be heard.

    Kanye West recently debuted his latest single "All Day" at the 2015 Brit Awards in London. Most of the audience, including Taylor Swift, appeared to be blown away by the performance, which featured flamethrowers and a posse of about 100 people dressed in all black. Part of that group was Vic Mensa, who recently featured on "Wolves," Kanye's latest single before "All Day."

    Since we've known him, Kanye West has never been afraid to express his feelings for either his mother and/or daughter, so for him to get 2 new tattoos in their honor shouldn't come much as a surprise.  On Thursday night (or more like Friday morning overseas), Kanye West did just that though, and got his daughter and mother's birth dates tattooed on his wrists. However, Yeezy was apparently "3, 4 seconds from wildin’" because Kim, who captured the photos, said she had to stop him from getting the tattoo on his forehead as he originally wanted.

    Kanye West is not an avid Twitter user, but in the past we've seen him use his account for moments of passionate fury. Those days are over (we think), as Ye took to his timeline today to officially apologize to Beck for his semi-interruption, and post-show comments at the Grammys. While he was at it, he decided to also throw an apology Bruno Mars' way. Apparently Ye had "hated on" the singer in the past, but now totally respects his artistry (we're guessing "Uptown Funk" may have done it).

    Yesterday, amid flamethrower bursts and a gaggle of up-and-coming grime artists, Kanye West debuted the third song we've heard from his upcoming album thus far. The confrontational, hard-hitting "All Day" ran counter to its two almost drum-less predecessors, "Only One" and "Wolves," and got the sub-section of Kanye fans who were displeased with those first two offerings back into an excited frenzy.

    Drake, if you're reading this... it's not too late. The king of kings himself, lord Kanye West, has offered his confidential expertise regarding sneaker design.While we all know 'Ye is fed up with Nike and he's now satisfied in his role with Adidas, helping Drake achieve greatness in the realm of sneakers (or elsewhere) is something he's into. During his BBC1 interview with Zane Lowe, Yeezy mentioned that he'd be willing to give Drake "confidential design advice on shoes he's doing over at that company."

    Critics are always fighting conflicting urges. On the one hand, there's the need to be objective and evaluate each work on its own merits. On the other, there's the desire to fit each new release from an artist into an over-arcing career narrative. The trick is to find a balance between the two.

    We just heard Kanye West's new interview with Zane Lowe for BBC 1, and as expected it was full of inspirational, passionate, and hilarious moments. The most surprising moment came when Kanye spoke of his last conversation with fashion instructor Louise Wilson before her death, which caused him to nearly break down in tears, something that-- by his own admission --he'd never done in an interview before.

    Kanye West's original interview with Zane Lowe has made it's way into the canon of legendary Kanye West interviews, and we're hoping his latest sit down with the BBC radio personality will leave a similar mark on history. The interview will stream on BBC 1 starting at 3 PM EST today, with a mix from Zane preceding the interview. With a new album on the way, and Ye's debut of his new song, "All Day", just yesterday at the Brit Awards, there should be plenty to talk about. Update: You can watch the full interview below.

    Dark Sky Paradise dropped earlier this week, with Big Sean set to move just under 150,000 copies, and now comes time to break it down on "Samples Of The Week." Although the album is a bit darker and more modern-sounding than Hall Of Fame and Finally Famous, it still makes use of some dope samples, with producers Kanye West and Key Wane digging some gold

    We've reached a day and age when a new Kanye West interview is an event in and of itself. Thanks in part to his iconic "George Bush hates black people" quip in 2005 and a pair of headline-worthy outbursts two years ago, Mr. West now commands millions of peoples' attention every time he makes an appearance on a talk show, even when the discussion centers on something as inconsequential as a sneaker launch.

    Kanye West's interviews are generally more eventful than that of your average artists, and Zane Lowe interviews are generally a little more eventful than that of your average radio host's, so together, you get a pretty magical combination. When Kanye's last interview with Zane dropped back in 2013, it spawned plenty of classic Kanye quotes, and was even the source for Jimmy Kimmel's parody that launched he and Ye's brief feud.

    Big Sean's Best Wordplay On "Dark Sky Paradise"

    Big Sean has always been a gifted wordsmith. Puns, metaphors, similes--you name it. On occasion, though, he's been guilty of reaching: "ass-quake, ass-tate, ass-tray..." He's better than that. And on Dark Sky Paradise he proves it. Lyrically, this is Sean's deepest work, but he doesn't ditch the wordplay games. In fact, some of these bars are his wittiest ever. These rhymes will have you doing double-takes, and by the time the lyrics click, Sean's already bars ahead.

    Big Sean's third commercial album, Dark Sky Paradise, is in stores and online today. It's safe to say the G.O.O.D. Music rapper's past album releases didn't exactly live up to the hype, however the hype for DSP seems to be working for Sean, not against him. While it may not be an instant classic, it's shaping up to be Big Sean's most cohesive project yet.
