MTV: Kanye Guest Stars On The Cleveland Show Again!

5 May

Kanye West - The Cleveland Show

It seems like Kanye West is proving quite popular with the makers of ‘The Cleveland Show’. This weekend he made his second cameo as 19-year-old rapper Kenny West, this time rapping in Klingon and singing like a robot in a battle against Cleveland Jr. to win the affection of a girl named Chanel Williams, voiced by Taraji P. Henson.  At least if the music doesn’t work out, I guess  Kanye’s got a career as a cartoon!

Kanye Turns His Back On Electro?

14 Apr

Kanye West

If the latest rumours about Kanye West ‘taking it back to basics’ are to be believed, then it seems like Mr. West and the electro beat are no more. In a recent interview with The Red Bulletin DJ Premier said: “Kanye’s new album is strictly hard beats and rhymes. He’s totally done with electro. You’re gonna be surprised by what you hear.”

Kanye‘s fifth studio album, ‘Good Ass Job’ which is due for release this summer will feature top names such as Drake, Q-Tip and his new protégé Big Sean. Sounds interesting, but I guess we’ll see if going back to basics means he’s getting rid of that dreaded Auto-Tune.  Hmmmm [Kanye Shrug].

Nicki Minaj - Massive Attack Cover

The Rap Up have revealed the cover image for Nick Minaj‘s horrendous new single, “Massive Attack” featuring Sean Garrett. In an interview with the site, Nicki talked about her desire to team up with Swizz Beatz and Kanye West for her debut album. Fingers crossed the other tracks will be 1000% better than this crap!

Check out my previous review of “Massive Attack” and the leaked video here.

Leak Alert: Kanye West – Diamonds [Audio]

28 Feb

Kanye West

A Kanye West track named Diamonds, possibly from his upcoming 5th album, has been leaked. It’s definitely the type of track you’d expect from Ye but what’s up with the mumbling? It sounds like he’s forgotten the lyrics or had another ‘Hennessey moment’ in the booth. However, Kanye has said that the new album will be “an old school record on a tape deck” created with “just a drum machine, ghetto blaster and a microphone”. Sure sounds like it.

Rating: 5/10

Amber Rose Gets ‘Undressed’ for Paris Fashion Week

24 Jan
Kamber Paris Mens Fashion Week

Kamber hit the Junya Watanabe Show in paris

As per usual Kanye West and his ‘model’ girlfriend, Amber Rose continue to  draw attention wherever they go. The couple hit up Menswear Fashion Week in Paris last and have been creating a storm ever since the arrived. Never to be outdone (by themselves) Kamber started fashion week as a walking endorsement for fur, but the highlight of their visit so far has been the shredded dress (if you can call it one) that Amber donned for the Junya Watanabe Men’s Autumn/Winter 2010 show. Kanye obviously didn’t want to be upstaged so accessorized his black get up with some black studded Christian Loubouitin loafers.

If I’m honest, I do like the quirky orange number and Louis Vuitton purse Amber is wearing is quite quirky, although I will not be purchasing it in the near future but Kamber will probably be hearing from a number of animal rights groups shortly!
