Pusha T – “Lunch Money” (Prod. Kanye West)

Whoo! A few minutes ago, “Lunch Money,” a new Pusha T track that Kanye West apparently produced, appeared online with zero advance notice, and it absolutely goes. Kanye’s beat for the song is a gurgling, lurching soup of confusing, disorienting sounds, but all those sounds are built around a very basic, very funky pulse. And… More »

Hear The Benjamin Bronfman Demo That Became Kanye’s “New Slaves”

Ever wonder where those distinctive blips on Kanye West’s “New Slaves” came from? Turns out they originated on a demo by Benjamin Bronfman, a member of the production collective known as Teachers and father to M.I.A.’s child.
