Jay-Z & Kanye West – Otis (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on August 13th, 2011 by Hyphen

I’m sure most of you have seen the “Otis” video by now, but I’m guessing there are a few folks like myself that spend the work week focused on the day job and getting to that Watch The Throne level.  I’ve seen the song and video analyzed ad nauseum, but I did enjoy Toure’s breakdown of the swag off between Hov & Yeezy.  Check it out here.

And while I’m a huge Jermaine fan, this is hilarious:

Kanye waxes philosophical at the Rolling Stone office

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews, Videos on July 31st, 2010 by Hyphen

On last week’s SNSS, we started talking about our favorite MC’s of all time and my answer for the last decade plus has always been the late, great Big L.  I did mention that there might be another artist overtaking L in my personal list, and I think it’s actually already happened.  Kanye is hands down my favorite artist of all time, throughout any genre.  The music has been dope from day one and the man is absolutely hilarious with everything he does.  If you haven’t seen Aziz Ansari’s bit about ‘Ye, he nails it perfectly.  Dude is just so excited about everything, it’s comedy.

With the new album finished (and no longer called Good Ass Job), ‘Ye has started making the rounds to media outlets to get the buzz going.  While the above trip to the Rolling Stone office was great, the highlight of the week has clearly been his entry to the Twitterverse.  You have to follow this dude…it’s incredible.  Peep it – @kanyewest.

Be prepared for a lot of Kanye talk on TAOD.  You’ve been warned.

I hope you caught Aziz’ Intimate Moments For A Sensual Evening special on Comedy Central from last week, but if not, here’s one of the highlights courtesy of NahRight.  Everything Kanye does is hilarious – I’ve been saying this since the first time Tunji and I met dude in LA in ’02.
