My personal favorite track off of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. My review for this video can be summed up in two words: “Rihanna…wow.”

The Art of G.O.O.D. Fridays

November 14, 2010

Starting some weeks ago, Kanye announced G.O.O.D. Fridays in which he released a new song available for download every friday until Christmas. I loved the cover art for the singles so much I’ve compiled them here. I’ll continue to add upcoming artwork to this post as they come out. I know it isn’t New Years yet but I’m gonna make an early resolution for 2011 and that is try to go five posts without having one be about Kanye West.(Right now it’s tough as his album is coming out in two weeks you see)

Brooklyn Girls

Let’s get back into this slowly shall we?

I wasn’t up on this kid earlier due to me confusing him with ANTHONY Hamilton. I heard that Lacey Duvalle song he did and I immediately hated on it. Not because I didn’t like the song, I did like it, but I was like “What the fuck is Anthony Hamilton doing rapping?!” My world was being turned upside down, rappers were singing and now all of a sudden singers are grabbing the mic? What was next? John Legend freestyling over the “A Milli” beat? Fuck that. My rage was fueled.

Anyways, turns out they are two different people and Charles Hamilton is actually a pretty nice emcee. Definitely riding the nerd, hipster hop bandwagon and all that. It’s cool. Me being a gigantic geek myself, I gravitate more towards these guys anyway. Charles Hamilton’s rhyming is nice, the beat is aiight. I like the Lacey Duvalle cameo and the fact that they’re playing Sonic The Hedgehog in the background in that one scene. Ummmmm, yeah. Check it:

Working the phrase “Mamasay Mamasa Mamakusa” into a song scores extra points with me.

Rumblfish Muxtape Vol. 1: We The Worst

May 1, 2008

Really digging this new site Muxtape. Got hip to this by a post on Soul SIdes(one of my fav blogs btw). It’s a simple site that allows you to create a mixtape and through your browser allow people to listen to it at their leisure. Future Muxtapes I plan on compiling will have more of a theme to them. This first one is to just test the waters and upload some of the songs I’ve been listening to as of late. Enjoy.
