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!!

KANYE WEST’S DARK TWISTED FANTASY!! by Noggy

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 ..

  • “Power” (featuring Dwele) (produced by Kanye West and S1)
  • “See Me Now” (featuring Beyoncé & Charlie Wilson) (produced by Kanye West, No I.D., and Lex Luger)
  • “So Appauled”
  • “Lost in the World” (featuring Justin Vernon of Bon Iver) (produced by Justin Vernon)
  • “Chain Heavy”
  • “Mama’s Boyfriend”
  • “All of the Lights”
  • 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!!



    KANYE WEST – POWER (PREVIEW) by Noggy

    Normally I don’t do behind the scene/preview video’s. I just wait till the real deal is available and than I share. In this case however I really have to make an exception. Cause after seeing the preview and concept of the Power video I think this one is going to be massive. Probably no surprise to Kanye fans all over the world…but I think that this video might be even larger than his ego!! Cause the following can be expected ..

    Marco Brambilla’s POWER shows a continuous camera move from extreme close-up of Kanye West revealing an a neoclassical video tableau showing characters and creatures surrounding him in an abstract environment – all moving in extreme slow motion. Inspired by Michelangelo’s frescos in the Sistine Chapel, the piece depicts a faux historical moment – an empire on the brink of collapse from its own excess, decadence and corruption.

    Anyways the video will air today at 11 p.m. on MTV in the U.S. Of course you will be able to watch it on the Strangefruitmusicblog as soon as the video hits the net.

    More and more often wikipedia proves to be my one stop source for valuable information and I am not refering to the nerdy kind. I found the following on Kanye West’s album by the name of Good Ass Job which is scheduled for release on the 14th of September 2010.

    Good Ass Job is the fifth studio album by American hip hop artist Kanye West, due to be released in September 2010 on Roc-A-Fella Records. Production will come from West himself, Q-Tip, RZA, DJ Premier and Pete Rock. Good Ass Job will complete a planned tetralogy West began with his first three albums, The College Dropout, Late Registration and Graduation.

    The rumored tracklisting was prematurely leaked on July 7 by Hype Williams; however, there are only the song titles with numeration, without guests and producers. If any changes occur we will provide you with an update.

    1. “Hell of a Life”
    2. “Dark Fantasy”
    3. “Power”
    4. “Chain Heavy”
    5. “Ghetto University”
    6. “That’s My Bitch”
    7. “Runaway”
