J. Cole's "Everybody Dies" and "False Prophets" are now available on iTunes and streaming platforms.
Kanye West Feat. Mr Hudson
808s & Heartbreak was a huge departure for Kanye West. The album found him experimenting with auto-tune, singing for nearly the entirety of the project. It also found him at his most vulnerable, coming after the unexpected death of his mother, Donda West, and his break-up with fiancee Alexis Phifer. 808s turns 8 today, and its influence is as clear as ever. From Drake to Travis Scott, the project has directly inspired many artists who broke out in the years following its release.
Fight With The Best
Chicago's Ohana Bam is a student of Kanye West, and with his latest track, "Fight With the Best," he has announced that his next project will find him rapping exclusively over old Yeezy beats. "Fight With the Best" comes with an instrumental that Kanye crafted in '99. The beat eventually ended up on a 2001 Rhymefest track, also called "Fight With the Best," released right around the time when Kanye got his big break by contributing extensively to The Blueprint.
No More Interviews
Last night, Big Sean told his fans to expect some new music on Halloween. The treat has now been delivered. His new song, "No More Interviews," is a forceful statement of intent that should catch the attention of the whole rap world. Over a thoughtful instrumental driven by a cheery whistle sample, Sean delivers all raps and no hook. The scene has officially been set for his forthcoming album, and he's sounding as confident as ever.
No Church In The Wild
Jay Z & Kanye West Feat. Frank Ocean
Last night, Kanye West addressed the exclusivity wars of Apple Music and Tidal, revealing that he and Jay's verses on "Pop Style" didn't make Drake's VIEWS over some "political" streaming service "bullshit." He seemed to be especially frustrated with Jay Z, suggesting that Watch The Throne 2 would never happen, and complaining that he and Hov's children have never played together.
Timmy Turner (Remix) (Official/CDQ)
Desiigner Feat. Kanye West
Better late than never. It's been over a month since Desiigner's big remix of "Timmy Turner" featuring his G.O.O.D. Music bawse, first surfaced on the worldwideweb. However, it was a half-ass leak, meaning, it was not only censored, it was a radio rip. Bad quality + no cursing = sad face emoji. Desiigner has finally decided to release the record's officially, CDQ audio, in all its dirty glory, via YouTube.
Kanye West Feat. Young Thug
How many different versions of The Life of Pablo, either the album as a whole or individual cuts, do you think Kanye West has on his laptop? We might never know the answer (sidenote/my humble opinion, it would be amazing to have a virtual tour of Kanye's laptop). Today we're getting treated to yet another version of the infamous "Famous" (I did that on purpose) record, this time featuring Young Thug through out-- heavy with the ad-libs and all.
Too Bad I Have To Destroy You Now (Demo)
Kid Cudi Feat. Kanye West
If you're well-versed in Kid Cudi's Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon, you're already familiar with the space ballad, "Too Bad I Have to Destroy You Now." Today, what sounds like an early demo of the track has made its way online, and this one features a contribution from Kanye West. Outside of the unmastered production and early fadeout, the main tip-off that this is an unfinished version of the song is Kanye's verse.
Juicy J Feat. Kanye West
Juicy J's been dropping mixtapes on a regular basis over the last year, but it's finally time for him to share his follow-up to 2013's Stay Trippy. Today, the Memphis rapper has shared the new single from Rubba Band Business: The Album, which features some vocal contributions from Kanye West. Ye supplies the titular phrase repeatedly in the hook, while Juicy contrasts his spontaneous yelps with his signature bassy flow. The track premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show today.
My City's Gone
Francis And The Lights Feat. Kanye West
Francis and the Lights, the outfit led by Francis Farewell Starlite -- producer for Chance the Rapper and Frank Ocean -- released their debut album, Farewell, Starlite!, yesterday. The experimental pop album includes two notable features: Kanye West and Bon Iver.
Tiimmy Turner (Remix)
Desiigner Feat. Kanye West
The Kanye West remix of Desiigner's hyped single, "Tiimy Turner," was recently played at Travis Scott's .Wav party, and now it's made its way out officially, surfacing as a censored radio rip today. Ye opens up the track with a 16 that should inject some new life into the track. The version that's going around currently does not feature the extravagant outro we heard on the original version of the song, but chances are this is an abridged version of the remix and the full thing should make its way out soon. What do you think of Kanye's verse?
You Know, You Know (CDQ)
One track that never officially made the cut on Drake's 2010 debut album Thank Me Later was "You Know, You Know." The song was actually never officially released, but well-known nevertheless among Drizzy aficionados of that era. Out of nowhere, Drake has now published the "You Know, You Know" CDQ to his YouTube channel.
In Common (Remix)
Alicia Keys Feat. Kanye West & Travis Scott
"Birds SZN" officially kicked off today with the debut of Travis Scott's new Beats 1 Radios show ".WAV." The biggest news was the premiere of a new Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight track called "The Hooch." But Scott wasn't done there.
Drake, Eminem, Kanye West & Lil Wayne
Things have changed a lot since 2009. The release of "Forever," a crew track featuring Drake, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, and Eminem, was the peak of hashtag rap, a trend where rappers ditched the "like" or "as" in their similes and just dropped the punchline, much like a hashtag for each individual bar. Drake was the main abuser of the style, but he credits Big Sean's "Supa Dupa Flow" with inventing it.
Gucci Mane Feat. Kanye West
Gucci Mane's anticipated album Everybody Looking has two huge features: Young Thug and Kanye West. We already heard Thug's contribution on "Guwop Home." With the album due out tomorrow, "Pussy Print" feat. Kanye has hit the digital streets.
Saint Pablo (WondaGurl & Daxz Remix)
Kanye West recently extended the shelf-life of February's The Life of Pablo by making one more amendment -- perhaps the last -- to the album. He added the new song "Saint Pablo," which had leaked at the end of March, to the bottom of the tracklist. It provided a fitting conclusion to the album, as the song is dedicated to the heir of Pablo's throne, Saint West.
Saint Pablo (CDQ/Final)
Kanye West Feat. Sampha
Back in March, Kanye West debuted a new record, "Saint Pablo," which was partially named after his new-born son (at the time), Saint West. The song reflected on Kanye's portrayal in the media (and beyond), with a chilling hook from r'n'b singer Sampha.
Champions (Round & Round)
Kanye West Feat. Desiigner, Travis Scott, Big Sean, Gucci Mane, Yo Gotti, 2 Chainz & Quavo
Yup, it's finally happening. Four years after the release of the first G.O.O.D. Music compilation album, Cruel Summer, and at least three years after talk/rumors/confusion of a Cruel Winter album initially began, the G.O.O.D. camp is finally gearing up to release the highly anticipated Cruel Summer follow-up.
Kanye West's a capella track "I Love Kanye" inspired numerous remixes in the immediate aftermath of The Life of Pablo's release. Though he's a bit late to the party, rising Swedish producer LIOHN may have the best remix yet, and he debuts it today in a HNHH premiere. LIOHN's remix, entitled "LongLiveYeezy," incorporates fluttering synths and contortionist 808s and distorts and warps Kanye's vocals in a production style reminiscent of Kanye himself.
ScHoolboy Q Feat. Kanye West
Even though we don’t have a title or release date yet, Schoolboy continues to promote his upcoming sophomore album like it’s right around the corner. In fact, Q recently announced that the album is already finished and turned in, meaning that it could be dropping any week here, so to hold us over with in the meantime he’s decides to keep the new music coming.
