Kanye West New Album: Life of Pablo

Feb 18, 2016 0

The world has distracted from Kanye West’s creative process – except, as he shows on The Life of Pablo, distraction is his creative process. This is a messy album that feels like it was made that way on purpose, after the laser-sharp intensity of Yeezus. It’s a labored-over opus that wishes it were a mixtape, trying hard to curate the vibe of a sprawling mess, and that’s because it’s made by an artist who feels like a mess and doesn’t care to hide it. “My psychiatrist got kids that I inspired” is the most brilliant line on the album: Ye can’t even go to the shrink without getting his ass kissed about what a big shot he is, so he has to go to the studio instead. And dude knows he’s got some issues to work on.

Pablo is an album he kept tinkering with, even after he gave it an official debut at Madison Square Garden – in the most stunning track here, “30 Hours,” Ye congratulates himself on how well the Garden premiere went. It’s designed to sound like a work in progress. “Ultralight Beam” sets up a gospel theme with Kirk Franklin, Kelly Price, The-Dream and Chance the Rapper. But West rarely stays in the same mood too long. He brings in Rihanna to sing a Nina Simone hook, then duets with Chris Brown a few tracks later. For “No More Parties in LA,” he puts Kendrick Lamar, Johnny “Guitar” Watson and Larry Graham on the same track. High-profile guests play the role of Yeezy’s sick conscience, whether it’s the Weeknd in the marital-blues slow jam “FML” or Young Thug in “Highlights.”

Kanye Vs Wiz Khalifa: Beefing Season Pt.1

Jan 29, 2016 0

Wiz was in South America during his ridiculous Twitter spat with Kanye West that went down on Wednesday (Jan. 29). Later that night, after ‘Ye had disparaged Wiz’ ex-wife and claimed ownership over their child together, the Taylor Gang emcee yelled “fuck Kanye!” while he was performing in Argentina.

Wiz went on to perform in the neighboring country of Chile the next night, and during that show, he had more harsh words for Kanye.

In video captured by TMZ, one can hear Wiz’ switch up the lyrics to one of his songs in order to indict West: “Kanye gon’ get smashed out,” he sings near the beginning of the clip. He then repeated one of his tweets that he had directed at Kanye during their initial back and forth: “KK is weed fool.”

And it seems that Wiz’ South American fans are well aware of the viral beef, as someone in the Chilean crowd can be seen holding up a sign that reads “YE IS A LIL BITCH.”

Before the clip ends, Wiz can be heard issuing one more threat toward the WAVES rapper: “We coming for you Kanye, you better run n*gga.”
