Okay I have to admit I haven’t been paying much attention to The Throne (Jay Z & Kanye West) simply because every other blog does. But I am sucka for everything Otis Redding so I had to give in when the lastest Throne video hit tha web …

DOWNLOAD: KANYE WEST – DEVIL IN A NEW DRESS
Yes people …it’s team Kanye with yet another new way for you not to forget about his existence. The latest endavour is called “G.O.O.D Music Fridays. What is so good about it ?! ..Mr. West has promised to release a song every Friday until Christmas.
Since I’m a believer in quality before quantity let’s just see if Mr.West is able to deliver. The audio below is the second G.O.O.D music Friday track the first one was Monster featuring among others Nicki Minaj.
Since there are a lot of Fridays until Xmas … the only thing I’m willing to promise is that I will share with you the tracks that I consider dope. That being said here is the second single under Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music Fridays campaign titled “Devil In A New Dress.”

DOWNLOAD: KANYE WEST – POWER MIXTAPE
To those of you who thought the Kanye overkill was over … I sincerely apologize. This is of course for the hardcore Kanye fans…a mixtape with familiar and less familiar tunes courtesy of mixleak.com. The tape is a compilation of everything Kanye has been up to lately rapper and producer wise.
There is not much to say, you either really love it or just hate it…but then again that is usually the case with music that doesn’t always fit into a particular box. Since it’s mostly regular hiphop this tape should be an easy listen for most.
All I know is that I filed this mixtape in my “I DIG” box…enjoy!!
First up my apologies for the recent Kanye West overload but I kinda warned y’all the brother was going to be in your face!!
Now back to what you came here for …See me now…nice track, Ye spitting sharp lyrics over a RnB beat and vocals by Beyonce and Charlie Wilson. How could I not share this one …Enjoy!!

The first single Power has already been featured on the blog and if this track is any indication of what to expect….I predict we will get tired of seeing his face on every music channel every day…But hey what else is new!!
The abovementioned is the ending of a post I did on Kanye’s new release in July… and boy was I wrong. Cause I thought the album had to drop first before we would get tired of seeing his face. Rolling Stone, Facebook, Ustream, Twitter … yep he decided to drive us crazy new media style. But I got to hand it to him it’s working.
Okay for all you people out there wondering what it is about Kanye. I have to say I never really noticed him untill his freestyle performance on Nick Canon’s Wild n Out where he more or less massacred the Wild n out crew…you can witness that below.
But to keep the news more current the Good Ass Job album has now become the Dark Twisted Fantasy album. The September release date has been reset and the “official” release date is now 16 November 2010. As for the tracklist the following list (wikipedia) contains the confirmed ones ..
And at this point you are probably asking yourself why you would want this?! Well I think the very short but very awesome video to the track Power should do the trick and if that fails, maybe the hilarious but very real lyrics to the track Mamma’s Boyfriend will persuade you.
Like strangefruitmusicblog promised we were going to provide you with visuals as soon as this video/painting would hit the net. As I suspected …very dope visuals. But alas this wonderful piece of art turns out to be shorter than the behind the scenes video that was removed from the net a short while ago. Probably because it must have been excruciatingly expensive to create this marvelous ego trip.
Of course by now there are a lot of conspiracy and illuminati theories circling the net. But we are going to keep things simple. The video is dope, but short and has one very good effect on the viewer … it leaves you wanting more..Enjoy!!
