The Producer Behind the Year's Best Rap Tracks Makes His Own Music, Too

It's hard to find good, quality You Time when you're collaborating with Kanye West, Rick Ross, and Pusha-T (not to mention Azealia Banks, Action Bronson, and many, many others). But after a couple of busy years, 28-year-old Scottish DJ Hudson Mohawke has finally put out a new EP. » 9/30/14 7:01pm 9/30/14 7:01pm

Kanye West Said a Crazy Thing About Drones But Was Also Right

Kanye West is a worrier. Except these days, he's not upset about Bonnaroo or water bottles, he's worried about adult stuff, like the safety of his one-year-old daughter North. More specifically, he's worried about her getting electrocuted by a paparazzi-piloted drone while she's swimming. As with most things Kanye,… » 8/07/14 10:02am 8/07/14 10:02am

Further Proof that Kanye Makes Everything Better (or Maybe Worse)

The formula is simple: take one or more already successful intellectual properties, shamelessly rip off some sick beats remix the soundtrack using an existing Kanye West joint, then just sit back and wait for the shitstorm of Kanye fanbois and haters to eviscerate one another's musical tastes in the discussion… » 5/03/14 12:00am 5/03/14 12:00am

Spot Everything Wrong With This Photo of Kanye Taking an iPad Pic

Of course, of course, Kanye West would use his iPad to take a photo of Kim taking a photo. His tablet pic faux pas is 100 percent believable. But this picture—from the couple's Vogue spread—is also a horrible photoshop job. Using image annotation*, help us point out everything that's wrong. » 3/24/14 11:52am 3/24/14 11:52am

Random Viral Video Blasts an 8-Year-Old Kanye West Song to the Top 20

A few weeks ago, Marina Shifrin made a YouTube video to tell her boss she was quitting. Shifrin's resignation went viral, granting her 15-minutes of inter-fame and the possibility of a future job. Good for her! But the video has also given an unlikely second life to its Kanye West soundtrack. "Gone," from Yeezy's 2005… » 10/11/13 10:40am 10/11/13 10:40am

Kanye West: Black Skinhead (A Music Video Inside a Moleskine)

Sort of like the literal MS Paint renditions of popular songs, this music video of Kanye West's visceral Black Skinhead draws out each of his lyrics inside the pages of a Moleskine for you to follow along. It's an art-filled music video inside a plain Moleskine. Like the pages are opening up to a pounding orchestra. » 7/12/13 8:00pm 7/12/13 8:00pm

Kanye Got Mice Autographed by Steve Jobs and Woz for Father's Day

Kanye West: in the last month he's compared himself to Steve Jobs and God and he became a dad for the first time. So it's fitting that on Father's Day this year, he was the proud recipient of a pair of Apple mice signed by none other than Jobs and Woz, according to a picture Yeezy posted on Twitter. Between this and… » 7/01/13 12:57pm 7/01/13 12:57pm

Who Would You Cast In a Live-Action Jetsons Movie?

Kanye West is making the rounds again claiming that he's the creative director for a live-action Jetsons movie that's currently (sort-of, kind-of, not really) in development. Beyond the fact that "creative director" isn't actually the title for a job on any movie — but something you'd find at an advertising agency —… » 6/27/13 1:30pm 6/27/13 1:30pm

Show of Hands: Did You Buy, Stream, or Pirate Yeezus?

Today was the official release date for Kanye West's latest album Yeezus, but in spite of the great lengths the Louis Vuitton Don went to keep it out of the wrong hands, it leaked on Friday. So did you download it right away or wait to obtain it by the legal means? (Yeezy haters to the left for this question). » 6/18/13 3:50pm 6/18/13 3:50pm

This Can't Possibly Be Kanye's Insane Tech Start Up, Can It?

Earlier this year, Kanye West went on an epic Twitter berserker barrage that was so insane it promised to revolutionize tech, architecture, education and everything in between. Apparently (emphasis on APPARENTLY), his first project with his new start up, Donda Media, popped up in beta last night and it's... uhh...… » 3/28/12 2:53pm 3/28/12 2:53pm

Aziz Ansari Hilariously Remixes a Jay-Z and Kanye West Song with Emojis

Jay-Z and Kanye West's N*ggas in Paris is an epically hard, head bumping anthem that's ruled rap for the better part of the year. Aziz Ansari and Matthew Shawver just one upped it by translating it into a hilarious rendition filled with emojis from their iPhones. This is the best thing to happen to music all year. » 12/09/11 5:20pm 12/09/11 5:20pm
