A$AP Rocky Releases New Album ‘At.Long.Last.A$AP’ A Week Ahead Of Street Date

Rejoice, for Lord Flacko Jodye has bestowed upon us his latest gift. You can now stream the highly anticipated follow-up to Long.Live.A$AP below, via Spotify.

As a passing fan of A$AP Rocky who leans more in favor of his mixtape output, I can say after a few preliminary listens that the new record, At.Long.Last.A$AP, is the A$AP Mob star’s most impressive work to date. “Holy Ghost” is one hell of an opening track, “Canal St.” and “Excuse Me” are certified bangers, and “L$D” is just as trippy now as it was when we first heard it last week. The …

Kanye West’s Upcoming Album Now Has A New Name

Kanye West has given his upcoming album a new name. It might change again, but right now it has a different name than before and because we’re talking about Kanye West that means it’s news.

Several months ago, Kanye West told the world his Yeezus follow-up would be titled So Help Me God. Now, according to updates Mr. Kim Kardashian posted on Twitter Sunday morning, the record will now be called Swish. Kanye claims the title may change again, but for now Swish will do.

It’s important to note that Kanye has not made any release plans known …

Stream: Tyler, The Creator, Kanye West, & Lil Wayne – “Smuckers”

Just as Tyler, The Creator‘s Cherry Bomb arrives on iTunes, a stream of one of the record’s most anticipated tracks has found its way online.

“Smuckers” is a collaborative effort that no one could have imagined happening five years ago. Over the course of five and a half minutes Tyler swaps bars with Kanye West and Lil Wayne. Each pretty much stays in their own line, and they probably didn’t actually complete the song in the same room, but still – it’s pretty cool. To make matters even better, it’s a far more enjoyable song than “…

Rihanna Releases New Single, “Bitch Better Have My Money”

Following Rihanna‘s catchy Kanye West / Paul McCartney collab, “FourFiveSeconds,” the R&B singer-songwriter is back with another fire-emoji single, entitled “Bitch Better Have My Money.” This new single is reportedly taken from her upcoming eighth studio album whose title is yet to be unveiled. The new record, scheduled to be released later this year, follows her 2012 full-length album, Unapologetic. Kanye West, who also has a new record scheduled for release this year, will be very much involved in the recording process as he is reportedly part of its production team.

Additionally, speculations of a Rihanna-Kanye …

Kanye West Debuts Official “All Day” Music Video

Leave it to Kanye West to turn a performance at the 2015 BRIT Awards into an official music video and pull it off effortlessly.

After teasing a Steve McQueen-directed video for his song “All Day” during Paris Fashion Week, West has altered his creative direction for the new track.

The simplistic stage setup …

So Help Us God: Kanye West Streams “Awesome”

Following the release of “All Day” just last week, Kanye West has shared a new song titled “Awesome.”

Allegedly an updated version of a song first premiered during a live performance nearly two years ago, “Awesome” is yet another vocoder-riddled track from Kanye West. It’s as if 808s And Heartbreaks happened all over again, only this time the lyrics speak to love (likely referencing wife Kim Kardashian) and lack the immediate catchiness of most the material contained on that album. That’s not to say the song is a waste of time altogether, but if you’re looking for the …

Kanye West Shares Studio Version Of “All Day”

Following a live premiere during the BRIT awards last week, Kanye West has shared the studio version of “All Day.”

Rumored to be the latest single from West’s highly-anticipated new album, “All Day” is an high energy track that bangs even harder now than it did during its premiere (which came complete with flamethrowers). It’s an ego-fueled, give-no-fucks ode to the crazy level of success, fame, and sophistication Kanye believes to have achieved in his life. Theophilus London and newcomer Allan London help round out the hooks, but when all is said and done it’s only Kanye that people will …

Will Smith Recorded “Seven or Eight” Songs with Kanye West

The rumor mill has been circulating word of Will Smith and Kanye West recording in the studio together for years, but it seems that may actually be truth. As Consequence of Sound reports, the Fresh Prince recently stopped by Ryan Seacrest’s radio show. “I spent a week or so with ‘Ye and we went into the studio a couple of times and he’s trying to get my gassed up,” he said, adding he doesn’t “want to say, ‘Yeah I’m gonna do it!’ and then get in there and suck. I’m going to stay cautiously optimistic.”

Then, during a red carpet …

Watch A$AP Ferg’s Star-Studded “Dope Walk” Video

New York rapper A$AP Ferg has teamed with Rolling Stone to share a new music video for his track, “Dope Walk.” Shot entirely via IPhone and featuring cameos from Kanye West, Justin Bieber, and many others, view the clip by following the jump below.

“With ‘Dope Walk’ I wanted to bring back kids dancing and having fun again,” the 26-year-old wordsmith explained. “That’s how it used to be in Harlem. I remember everybody Harlem-shaking and ‘Chicken Noodle Soup’-ing. Those were some of the most fun and memorable times in my life.”

Stelios Phili, the song’s producer, drew inspiration …

Big Sean Stuns With “One Man Can Change The World”

With a week to go before Dark Sky Paradise hits, Big Sean has shared what may soon be considered a modern classic.

Built upon a steady piano accompaniment, “One Man Can Change The World” pairs Big Sean with Kanye West and John Legend for an ode to a child’s endless potential. Sean has always been one to speak of his ambition and how it lead him to turn his dreams into reality, but here he takes things to another level altogether. There’s always time spent paying tribute to Sean’s late grandmother, including a cell phone message. You can stream the …

Kanye West Debuts “Wolves” on ‘SNL’ With Sia, Vic Mensa

Kanye West has kept fans guessing about what to expect from his currently untitled seventh studio album, but last night audiences around the globe got their first taste of what the album holds in store when Yeezus performed the opening track as part of Saturday Night Live‘s 40th anniversary.

Accompanied by Sia and Vic Mensa, who joined the performance after West opened by lying on his back through renditions of both “Jesus Walks” and “Only One,” Kanye West performed his new single “Wolves” for the first time last night. It’s a brooding track, built on what feels like …

Rihanna, Kanye West & Paul McCartney Drop “FourFiveSeconds” Video

Less than two weeks after sharing their surprising collaborative single, Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney have joined forces once more to deliver the official video for “FourFiveSeconds.”

Set against a white backdrop with contrast turned up high enough to cast everything in a bit of shadow, the visuals accompanying “FourFiveSeconds” play into the single’s cover art quite well. Rihanna appears first, dancing and singing as the music builds, then later her collaborators join her on screen. It’s a simple clip, but an effective one. You can view the video below:
