It seems as thoguh Yeezy Season came and never ever left us because he is just banging out one thing after another after another. Kanye West first dropped his Yeezus album, then took it on a universally acclaimed multi-leg tour with none other than Kendrick Lamar, announced a fashion deal with Adidas, destroyed a verse on a Drunk In Love remix and this track with Rick Ross and Big Sean off Ross’ upcoming project and has no put out a trailer for YEEZUS The Film. WOW. Directed by Hype Williams, there’s no more information regarding releaes dates or where this will be filmed but regardless this is going to be spectacular.
Shout out to the blogs like NeighborsHateUs and the people who run them who still comb through the depths of the internet to find jams like these for all of us. We showed you all the video of Hudson Mohawkeplaying the original version of Bound 2 (we’ll call it Bound 1) and now we got a stream of the track to rock out to and it is every bit as good as I could hope. According to the post it’s rumored that Tyler The Creator might have been involved in this? Regardless, this is a JAM.
With Valentine’s Day having just passed us, it seems as though everyone and their mother decided to put their 2 cents into the smash hit that is Drunk In Love. From Kanye West and Diplogiving their own takes to the track’s producer Detail giving the track new life. There have been no shortage of edits of the iconic song including a complete overhaul by The Weeknd (which is my personal favorite).
The playlist also features remixes from T.I. who is still making his claim to remain King of the South as well as remixes from Future and some lesser known names such as DJ Jayhood providing a little Jersey Club edit as well. Be sure to flip through and let us know if we forgot any must have Drunk In Love remixes on our Twitter.
I can imagine this remix of Drunk in Love by Diplo isn’t up for download because it will be a part of an official remix package for Beyonce’s smash single but regardless this will KNOCK in a club. It is a scientific fact that the only person females love more than Diplo is Beyonce and this combination is an absolute win. Will keep this post updated as more information comes regarding release dates.
Beyonce – Drunk In Love (Diplo Remix)
Turns out everyone and their mother wants to lend their 2 cents to this track and none other than Kanye West stepped up to the plate to lend his own verse as well.
Kanye West – Bound 2 (Epoch Rises [trap sauce] remix)
When I usually think about Bound 2, it’s usually more about the more melodic Charlie Wilson interludes in the song than the potentially more aggressive portions of the song. LA-based TNJ newcomer Epoch Rises takes the song and gives it a mean-muggin gritty makeover utilizing all sorts of grinding synths and big time 808′s. While it was certainly a wildly different vibe than I was anticipating, in the context of the right set, I can see this being a perfect weapon. Check the links and grab the free download from his official website!
There hasn’t been much in the way of music appearances in 2013 for 50 Cent. The Queens rapper has mainly focused on behind the scenes ventures this year as music has taken more of a backseat (although his upcoming album has been due out four or five times already at this point). J. Cole recently released his widely popular sophomore album Born Sinner and 50 was a rare guest on the project. The track “New York Times” is the only song on the album featuring rappers other than Cole. Recently, the Queens native called into DJ Whoo Kid’s program on Shade 45 and talked about his involvement on the album and J. Cole.
“I think that it’s a good project man,” 50 Cent said. “He’s producing his records while actually rapping on them like Kanye.”
Speaking of Kanye, 50 didn’t spare his feelings about Born Sinner’s release date competitor Yeezus and its creator.
“I think they’re both talented,” he said. “Some of the choices on the new joint that Yeezy made, I wasn’t into all that. I didn’t know what kind of beat came off.”
50 Cent also talked about how Kanye’s sixth studio album might be received by fans and critics down the line.
“It was creative man, it came out of nowhere with that. We’ll see if people can adjust to it and really enjoy it or if it’s too different.”
Finally, 50 talked about his future music and why he doesn’t party too much. He even jokes about re-recording Power of the Dollar with producers such as Timbaland, J. Cole, and Kanye West.

Apart from being a pioneer of the “Dirty South” sound, Mike Dean has been working with Kanye West since the beginning. Though his official writing credits may only reach back to Graduation, he has been involved in at least the mixing process on each of his albums since The College Dropout, and has become a more prominent collaborator over time. Along with Jeff Bhasker, he carried much of the instrumental work on 808′s, MBDTF, and Watch The Throne (if you hear keys or guitar on a Kanye track from this era it’s quite possibly Dean). The producer spoke with HuffPost Live about his work on Yeezus, as well as how Kanye’s production techniques have addapted over time.
They said it wasn’t possible but it turns out that Yeezus, the 6th studio album from Kanye West, leaked this morning in its entirety. I’m gonna start the whole post off by saying SUPPORT THE MUSIC AND BUY THIS MUSIC WHEN IT COMES OUT 6/18. I would point you all to a pre-order link but Kanye West never made one available so if you want this for yourself get to the record stores or iTunes 6/18 and buy it. That said, after a full listen through I still am trying to wrap my head around what I just heard. Definitely as grandiose as Kanye intended it to be, let this one sink in and sound off in the comments with what you think. Hit the jump for the Kanye West ‘Yeezus’ full album stream!
Kanye West is always eager to grab attention in the most elaborate way possible. Now he debuted a new song in the form of videos simultaneously displayed on the exterior walls of more than five dozen buildings — just in time for tonights performance on Saturday Night Live.

West recently turned Twitter into a guessing game when he posted a cryptic tweet: “June Eighteen”, he wrote. The date could refer to the day his and pregnant Kim Kardashian’s baby is due, or possibly the day West releases a new album.
Kanye West – New Slaves
If West does drop a new album on June 18, it would be his first solo album since 2010′s critically acclaimed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. And with news today of J. Cole’sBorn Sinner dropping on the same day, it seems as though ‘Ye will follow suit.
Man SNL has been on fire as of late in regards to being a hub for popular music culture. First assisting with the release of Daft Punk’s album Random Access Memories, they had the chance for Kanye West to premiere his track New Slaves after it’s debut being projected on the sides of buildings all around the world a couple nights ago. His upcoming album ‘Yeezus’ (seriously) will be out on June 18th which leaves me to only hope that it receives some G.O.O.D. Friday-esque promo like he did for MBDTF.
