Kanye West took to the mountains of Wyoming to develop his next musical effort. Heads have been jonesing for new work from the man who made “Jesus Walks” and thank Yeezus our prayers have been answered.
A group calling themselves “Music Mafia” (yes, they’re the ones who hacked Drake‘s Twitter account) — has dropped what appears to be two songs related to Kanye’s upcoming album. The first, “Euro,” is a trap-esque beat if made in the dungeon of Metro Boomin’. Featuring the jiggy fly human being known as A$AP Rocky, the two make for a swanky, swangin’ combination that could get some play in a nightclub on a drunk-and-high Friday night.
Whether these are from recent recording sessions Kanye has been doing for his upcoming new album, part of which he’s been creating at a mountaintop resort in Wyoming but he certainly won’t be happy about it.. Last week, more than two dozen songs by Chris Brown leaked online from unknown sources which included collaborations with Lil Wayne, Wizkid, Sean Kingston, 2 Chainz, Tyga, R. Kelly, French Montana, G-Eazy and more.Both tracks are unimpressive but they do kind of sound unfinished to be fair.
Today, two never heard before Kanye West songs have taken the leak route — ‘Euro (Switch Hands)’ features ASAP Rocky while the other one ‘Hold Tight’ has guest appearance from all members of Migos along with Young Thug. A mysterious website called MusicMafia.to has claimed responsibility for the leaks. The songs even have a tag of the site but it’s unclear what the actual source.
The Weeknd starts off his new XO SoundCloud channel (which is reserved for “rarities, remixes, and other unreleased material”) in fashion by dropping two massive treats for his fans today, “Tell Your Friends” with an extended remix, which compiles verses from Kanye West, Drake, Nas, Ghostface Killah, Belly and Young Braised from various freestyles and performances (Nas’ verse comes from his Met Gala set, for example). On top of that, there’s “Secret Passionfruit,” a mashup of The Weeknd’s “Secrets” and Drake’s “Passionfruit,” which premiered on OVO Sound Radio.
Joining Ghost on the Canadian R&B titan’s song are Kanye West, Nas, Drake, Belly and — a bit amazingly — indie Vancouver rapper Young Braised, Pitchfork points out. The extended remix collects West’s verse from his previously released SoundCloud drop “When I See It,” while Nas’s verse comes from a Met Gala performance last year, The Weeknd has also shared a mashup titled “Secret Passionfruit,” which brings his Starboy smash “Secrets” together with Drake’s “Passionfruit” from More Life.

Just a day after revealing the tracklist, she releases “Love Yourself,” which features Kanye West, The major collaboration is just one of several that will appear on Strength of a Woman. Blige also locked in features from Quavo, Missy Elliott, and DJ Khaled, among others. She also previously released the single “Thick of It.“
Mary J. Blige’s new studio LP Strength of a Woman is a month away, hitting stores on April 28. A day after unveiling the tracklisting, The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul returns with her latest single “Love Yourself.” The soulful record features Kanye West, who delivers a guest over powerful drums and the sample of loud horns
Kanye West dropped a 17-minute r’n’b opus featuring singer/songwriter/producer The-Dream on his Soundcloud which was a big surprise to many.
The rapper continues on the path of recovery since his breakdown earlier in the year, and while working on his next album, which is still titled Turbo Grafx 16 as far as we know, he’s also stayed on track with the release of Yeezy Season 5 the other week.
Kanye headed to the mid-2000s for his music choice at his recent fashion show– this song was played on a loop, according to Pitchfork, and it’s presented in the same manner on Ye’s Soundcloud. Kanye recreates a record from J. Holiday that was written by The-Dream (so it’s not too far off to have the OG songwriter appear on this experimental new version). It’s a lush production, with a string arrangement, heavy synths and layered vocals, keeping the melody of the original song intact.

After Kanye West’s social media drama because of his meeting with Donald Trump in December, he took to Twitter to set the record straight about their meet-up — but as of Monday (Feb. 6), those tweets no longer exist.
Upon deleting the tweets, West didn’t tweet anything about his rather peculiar action. Thus, the reason for the sudden deletion isn’t entirely clear, but TMZ reports sources have said Trump’s “Muslim ban” and other actions have made West change his mind about supporting Trump.
West hasn’t been the most prominent on Twitter as of late. His most recent tweets involve support for his fellow rappers Big Sean and Migos — who released an album Feb. 3 and Jan. 26, respectively — and a family Christmas photo from a month before that.
In the tweets, West declared that he wanted to discuss “multicultural issues” with the president-elect, adding that he felt “it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change.” Following the controversial actions Trump has taken since taking office on Jan. 20, though, it seems West isn’t so keen about keeping a good relationship with the new president.
It seems like after hearing the rumors of his ex Selena Gomez dating The Weekend Justin aint feeling the Starboy singer. When asked how he felt about The Weeknd by TMZ reporters Justin replied he is corny and his music is WACK!
Toronto rap superstar, Drake has shattered is for the highest-grossing Hip Hop tour for his Summer Sixteen Tour with Future.
Drake grossed $84.3 million over 56 shows in 38 cities between July 20 and October 8, according to numbers from Pollstar. The average show on the tour drew a crowd of 19,793 fans who paid an average ticket price of $112.08. In total, there were 752,141 tickets sold.
The numbers would’ve been higher if not for an ankle injury that sidelined Drake from the last six shows of the tour.
Despite breaking the all-time record for Hip Hop, Drizzy just missed cracking the Top 10 out of all genres for 2016, coming in at #11. Beyoncé came in at #2 for 2016 by grossing $256.2 million with her Formation Tour’s 49 shows, while Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band took the top spot with a tour that grossed $268.3 million over 76 shows.
Kanye West’s Saint Pablo Tour was the second-highest grossing Hip Hop tour of 2016, pulling in $52.8 million over 41 shows to land at the 29 spot.
Kanye had previously held the record with Jay Z for their Watch The Throne Tour over 2011 and 2012.
Drake’s now prepping to head back on road for his European tour, which kicks off in Amsterdam on January 21 and ends in Cologne on March 16.
Drake’s promoted the upcoming tour by saying “special guests” will be announced, although Young Thug has strongly hinted at his own inclusion on Instagram.
Back in November, Kanye went off on one of his rants during the Sacramento stop of the “Saint Pablo” tour, and called out Jay Z & Beyonce for not having talked on the phone yet. Well it’s being believed that Kanye was referencing the fact that when Kim got robbed in Paris, Hov or Bey didn’t show their support or even check up on her with a simple phone call.
Now fast forward to today, and Radar Online is reporting that Beyonce is getting her revenge for his Ye’s outcry on stage last month. According to today’s report, Kim has since tried to mend their relationship with Beyoncé & Jay Z, but Queen Bey ain’t having it.
“Beyonce flipped out on Kim when Kim called her to try and soothe tensions after Kanye’s hospitalization. Basically she told Kim to never, ever, contact her or her husband again and said stuff like she thought that the two of them are made for each other because they are both talentless and pathetic!” – RadarOnline
Radar also reports that Kanye & Kim felt awful about going off on Hov & Bey, so they wanted to try one last time to make things better, and mailed Bey and Jay invites to the Kardashian’s holiday party last week. But the source claims, “The invite was returned to Kim and Kanye’s house with ‘Return To Sender’ written on the envelope!”
Again, who knows the true accuracy behind this report, but sure is interesting to think about, and it does kinda add up & make sense. Read the full report here
