Portland Cello Project covers Kanye’s “All Of The Lights”

Posted in Live Performances, Videos on January 29th, 2011 by Hyphen

On Graduation, Kanye’s goal was to create stadium anthems (remember the line, “stadium status”?) and it seems with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, he’s crossed over to the orchestral world.  Opera house status doesn’t quite have the same ring to it, but the music sure sounds perfect.

Kanyeezy vs. Q-Deezy

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews on December 11th, 2008 by Hyphen

The interviewer is ehhh, but the #1 Human Being is entertaining as always.  This will give you a little insight if you’re still confused to what ‘Ye has been doing with Graduation and 808’s & Heartbreak.  Internal swagger is truly off the charts…and 808’s gets better on every listen.  I really like that record and I’m still a proud backpacker.  So there.

Kanye West – Graduation (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on August 26th, 2008 by Hyphen

Kanye?  Check.  Animation?  Check.  Dropout Bear?  Check.

Ok, it’s official, this is my new favorite video.  You may remember part of this being used in a commercial for Graduation when it first dropped, and apparently it was also bootlegged from a Takashi Murakami exhibit a while back as well.  Luckily, we finally get it in good quality, and, as expected, it’s dope as hell.  The only thing wrong with this song is that ‘Ye set up the opening of the 3rd verse so perfectly to rhyme my real name and then never did.  Boo.
