Black Skinhead [Throwback]
Of course, today's TBT has to honor Kanye West, who currently has the music world at a standstill awaiting the imminent arrival of his seventh album, the final title of which -- after many revisions -- has just been revealed to be The Life of Pablo. It's hard to believe it's been over two and a half years since 'Ye's last album, though the mood was much the same in the hours before Yeezus.
Black Skinhead (Remix)
Kanye West Feat. Miley Cyrus & Travi$ Scott
Kanye West has always been as much a tastemaker as an emcee. His fashion moves are imitated, his music style is emulated and his co-signs become world famous. So, when we hear a story about Kanye West gathering Miley Cyrus and Travi$ Scott for a surreptitious remix of “Black Skinhead” in 2013, we shouldn’t be surprised.
No More Parties In L.A.
Kanye West Feat. Kendrick Lamar
Kim Kardashian took to Twitter over the weekend to clarify the conspicuous absence of a new Kanye West track on G.O.O.D. Friday: he had been unavoidably detained at a Yeezy Season 3 fitting in Italy.
Trill Friends (Real Friends Remix)
By now you've all heard Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Fridays release "Real Friends," which, in conjunction with that "No More Parties in LA" snippet, wiped the unfortunate "FACTS" from our collective memory. Given its quality, "Real Friends" was inevitable going to get some remixes.
Real Friends/No More Parties In LA
Kanye West Feat. Kendrick Lamar & Ty Dolla $ign
Kim Kardashian promised us new Yeezy last night, and indeed, her man has exceeded all expectations by dropping two songs in one, both with the potential to be SWISH material. The first is titled "Real Friends," the track Kim hinted at with last night's tweet, and afterwards, there's a surprise collab with Kendrick Lamar and Madlib, "No More Parties in LA."
After hitting us with a preview of this just the other day, Sia keeps her word and drops off her new Kanye West-produced record “Reaper.”
Well look what we have here! In similar fashion as last year’s “Only One” release, (which was dedicated to his baby girl North,) Kanye West has once again decided to ring in the new year with a new song, this time going in over a sample of Drake & Future’s “Jumpman” instrumental.
Pusha T Feat. Kanye West, ASAP Rocky & The-Dream
Pusha T has already released three songs -- "Untouchable," "Crutches, Crosses, & Caskets," & "M.F.T.R." -- from his prelude album Darkest Before The Dawn. The album has apparently been released in New Zealand ahead of its official December 18th release date, and so we are treated to a leak of the album's most anticipated song: "M.P.A." feat. Kanye West, A$AP Rocky and The-Dream, with J. Cole on the production. Don't get your hopes up about any of these people dropping verses... Here's how Pusha described the song:
See You In My Nightmares
Kanye West Feat. Lil Wayne
A couple of days ago marked seven years since the release of Kanye West's seminal 808s & Heartbreak album. Seven years later, we still see the impact and the influence of Yeezy's album daily. It seemed worthy enough to dedicate our Throwback Thursday record to a choice 808s & Heartbreak cut-- appropriately, one that features Lil Wayne, given that today (assuming no delays) we'll also receive No Ceilings 2.
When I See It (Extended Version)
Kanye West surprised fans earlier this month and released two new songs onto his soundcloud page, an alternate version to “Say You Will” and a remix to The Weeknd’s “Tell Your Friends.” The latter, which was produced by Kanye & his long time collaborator Mike Dean, has now seen a new extended version of the instrumental surface online tonight thanks to Mike Dean. The four-minute instrumental is a little more heavier with the guitar, but still dope nonetheless. Give it a listen and go tell your friends.
Say You Will
Kanye West Feat. Caroline Shaw
So today something crazy happened, and no it wasn't YG's head tattoo. Kanye West released music on Soundcloud. Or at least, it appeared as though he was on Soundcloud, with two new songs surfacing under a Pro user account 'Kanye West.' You never know these days, though, it could have very well been a clever fan. We aired on the side of caution, posting a news article about the two leaks to start.
When I See It (Tell Your Friends Alternate Mix)
Kanye West's auto-tuned vocals can be heard on the bridge of The Weeknd's "Tell All Your Friends," which made us think there could be a Ye demo version somewhere out there. Today, that version has been released, along with an alternate take on 808s & Heartbreak's opening track, "Say You Will".
The Game Feat. Kanye West
The Game recently surprised us with the announcement that The Documentary 2 was in fact a double album, to be released in two installments. The first arrived on October 9th, and one of the most anticipated tracks from disc 1 has now made it's way online. "Mula" is a gritty collaboration with Kanye West, who with "Dreams" and "Wouldn't Get Far" has in the past served as one of the rappers best collaborators.
The Summer League (CDQ)
Wale Feat. Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign
Wale's giving his fans some Labor Day blessings.
Tell Your Friends (Remix)
We've got new Drake, and of course, it came via OVO Sound Radio on Beats 1. OVO co-founder Oliver El-Khatib took the decks and dropped a Drizzy remix of The Weeknd's Kanye West-produced hit "Tell Your Friends," off Beauty Behind the Madness.
With the clock striking midnight, G.O.O.D. Music’s Teyana Taylor decided to treat her fans to a new mixtape titled The Cassette Tape 1994. Laced with 5 tracks, the follow up to last year’s VII album comes with a lone feature from her boyfriend Iman Shumpert, and production credits from Kanye West, Da Internz, JR Rotem, and more.
Blended Babies Feat. Jon B
After linking up on "Shadows" earlier this year, production duo Blended Babies and '90s R&B star Jon B join forces to remix Rihanna's "FourFiveSeconds." Jon B's 1995 debut album Bonafide went platinum. Though his career isn't as poppin off as it used to be, he is still active, and his radio-friendly vocals are a natural fit on this upbeat "FourFiveSeconds" remix.
If I Shoot You
DJ Absolut Feat. Raekwon, Kanye West, Havoc & Consequence
DJ Absolut has been teasing his "If I Shoot you" remix for years, with various versions of the track showing up on an array of mixtapes. Today, he's shared a fully mastered version of the track with verses from Raekwon, Havoc, Kanye West, and Consequence(Beanie Sigel is listed on the art, but we're not hearing him). The hook riffs on the opening lines of Jay Z's classic track, "Streets Is Watching."
Amen (Hudson Mohawke Remix)
Pusha T Feat. Jeezy & Kanye West
Pusha T may have released his debut solo album in 2013, but it's not like he didn't already have a couple of projects out under his name already. His 2011 effort, Fear Of God II, was one of the strongest statements, and featured one particularly cool moment in uniting Kanye and Jeezy once again on "Amen".
Lose It (Gucci Mane)
French Montana Feat. Rick Ross & Lil Wayne
"Lose It," a leak off of the forthcoming Mac And Cheese: The Album, is vintage French Montana in that is absolutely stacked with A-list rappers -- Lil Wayne and Rick Ross on the feature, Kanye West x The Mekanics on the production.
