Kanye West
“New Slaves” / “Black Skinhead” [live on SNL]

Kanye blowin uppp! LOL @Woozy Tribe’s commentary: “Anyone wanna take bets on how hard kanye’s new album flops.” I don’t necessarily subscribe to that, but there’s certainly hard-hype. Like, we covered this track already on Friday, and here it is again: Kanye West’s “New Slaves,” this time live on SNL. This weekend was sick. I had these people in from Ohio that I’d never met before EYE-ARE-ELLE; we took a bite outta the big apple, and made it home in time to see Seth Meyers running around the areas we were at that day, which was a nice perspective nightcap for their trip. Followed up with me geeking at Kanye’s live performance piece, “New Slaves,” calling out all rappers/MC/lyricists on their shit lingo/language/spit, as my company ignored it while talking about watching Human Centipede II via their tablet on the way home. As I had said, the hype is everywhere in all ways, and Kanye is calling it now. Through SNL. Bringing the game up by +150 points. Next up: NEW ALBUM Yeezus out June 18. Let’s pop. {I am a mother fucker. Am I a mother fucker? Maybe. Shouldn’t have posted this in retrospect. Or it doesn’t matter. Is this hype or hyperbole?}
