OK. So we've pretty much decided to take the entire month of March off (with the exception of Atari- thanks man). I guess it has something to do with Spring Break and March Madness being in back-to-back weeks. Now that my bracket has been crushed like Apollo Creed vs. Ivan Drago, I guess I can get back to making some posts.
I know this is like a day old (at least the good quality version), but it is the best song I've heard this entire year. THIS ENTIRE YEAR!
Almost a year ago I made a post about an upcoming Family Guy spin-off called 'The Cleveland Show' featuring everyone's favorite black deli owner, Cleveland Brown. It's still going through the motions of being finished, but its on the way. But, that's not why I'm posting about the show.
Kanye West will add yet another name to his long list of aliases by guest starring in the show, playing a failed rapper named (stick with me here), Kenny West.
I really shouldn't be surprised about this, yet I am. Ye never fails to amaze.
So, everyone's favorite martian, Kid CuDi, has already come out and said that his first album, Man on the Moon: The Guardians, will also be his last album. He cites that friends and family have noticed a change in his demeanor since gaining notoriety in the business, and doesn't want to hear rumors spread or have his reputation suffer.
This may very well be The Dream's first appearance here at the Boog, so here goes nothing. The Radio Killa/R&B Gorilla takes some leisure time from ghostwriting hits to putting together (once again, here goes nothing) a masterpiece. The Dream hooked up with Tricky Stewart in the beat laboratory to produce 14 bangers/bedroom jams. Thats right; The Dream-born Terius Nash-follows in the same route as Boog favorite 88-Keys, as he presents his premise clearly throughout the album. Dude likes sex, regardless if its in the VIP or not. LOL. Smart choice.
The obvious standout joints are Rocking That Sh*t and the Yeezy featured Walkin' on the Moon, but the album has something for everyone. Or at least something for the bedroom.
Maybe I'm not as smart as Harding. Maybe I'm just not on her level. I have no idea what she is saying here. Is she mad at Obama? Is she glad he made her semi-relevant, if she is even that. What the hell man?
Ye's (gratefully) ephermal mullet is gone... for now. Above is Yeezy- featured with his most recent dime-piece Amber, who has been ubiquitous in photos of Kanye's fashion show endeavors as of recent-minus that horrid cut. BTW, notice 'Ye sporting the New Balance sneaks and surprisingly not his Louis Vs or his Aqua 8's.
To reiterate on what homie Siempre threw at yall bout his Story Tellers spot, shit was soooo dope. Bow in the presence of greatness lol Just gonna mention some of the highlights of the show, for me at least: - Ye finally addressing 50! In case you missed Curtis' recent shot at Yeezy, check that here. No matter how awkward of an acknowledgement it was via Kanye, I'm glad to know he's not shying away from any beef. -The opening of the set with "See You In My Nightmares" (minus Wayne) was so ill. Shit got me chills right off the bat. -The sometimes awkward and baffling freestyles that were spit via Martin Louis the King, no matter how dumb he sounded. I loved the emotion and passion Yeezy displayed for this set. -Lastly, his words on the doctor who performed the surgery on his mother, the great Dr. Donda West. Emotions definitely flared throughout the whole show.
In the words of Siempre, the set 'Ye put on for the folks of VH1 and music audiences in general was truly a blessing. I'm already vigilantly awaiting ANY more pieces to the puzzle of Kanye's alleged tour, "Ye Vs. The Volcano." I'm sure a doppeeee follow up to the GITDT awaits us
Meanwhile, I'll just bump out the live performances that the LV Don blessed us with in my car- with a conglomeration of some Drake joints-until something of this monumental quality comes across us.
Anybody able to catch Kanye's Storytellers on VH1 was blessed. Lyrically, Kanye has been slacking a little. But for an overall music feel, the concert was everything I love about Kanye. There was guitars, an 808-drummed up version of Stronger, and a Kanye mullet (two out of three isn't too bad).
The entire time I was watching it, I kept telling my friend how tight an album of this would be. Well, ILLroots has me covered.
