The excellent Outside Lands festival is returning to San Francisco this summer, and its lineup has just been revealed via a Funny Or Die video starring Huey Lewis. At the very top of the bill is Kanye West, fresh off his new Future collab, and he's joined by a startlingly diverse array of top-level… More »

Future – “I Won” (Feat. Kanye West)

"Trophy wife" isn't usually a term of endearment, but Future and Kanye West -- both of whom are engaged to beautiful, famous women after fathering children with them -- just built an entire (excellent) song on the conceit that there's nothing more romantic than being dubbed life's grand prize. And if you strip the negative… More »

Kanye West Is Finishing His New Album And This Is Not An April Fool’s Joke

Kanye West is working on a new album, but up until now, we've only heard the vaguest of reports about it, like the interview where Kanye said that it would be Born In The U.S.A. to Yeezus's Nebraska. The album is supposed to come out this summer -- and it's our mostMore »

The Week In Pop: The Mis-MGMT Of Foster The People

Every few years, a musician achieves that rare combination of commercial dominance and critical acclaim -- and therefore inspires lots of copycats -- only to willfully retreat from the spotlight. This usually involves making an album designed to alienate mainstream audiences and/or distance the originator from the imitators. It also tends to create a vacuum… More »

Kanye Receives Probation, Anger Management In Paparazzi Attack Plea Deal

Let's all close our eyes, take a deep breath, and savor the mental image of Kanye West in an anger management class. Because it's happening.

As previously reported, Kanye West and Jay Z headlined Samsung's SXSW showcase last night at Austin Music Hall.

Kanye Names Coinye Creators In Lawsuit

While the Kanye-West-inspired crypto-currency debacle that is Coinye seemed to go on the back burner in mid-January when the site was shut down, West's continued lawsuit has recently revealed many of the names of the formerly anonymous founders. You can see the amended lawsuit above. The suit no longer includes sites like Amazon, which… More »

Jay Z & Kanye West Will Play Samsung’s SXSW Show

Three years ago, Kanye West closed out SXSW with a late-night G.O.O.D. Music showcase at a converted power station. At the end of the show, Kanye brought out Jay Z for a quick set of collaborative songs. Not long after, they announced their collaborative Watch The Throne album. And now it's time for a… More »

Watch Kanye West & Big Sean’s Surprise Appearance With Rick Ross On Arsenio

Rick Ross's new album Mastermind came out on Tuesday, and he's been all over the late-night TV circuit for the last few weeks. But he saved the big guns for last night's performance on Arsenio. Doing the album highlight "Sanctified," Ross performed with that song's two guests, Kanye West and Big Sean (though sadly… More »

The Week In Pop: Kid Cudi, The Loneliest Stoner

Even though he parted ways with G.O.O.D. Music last year, Kid Cudi will probably never make it all the way out of Kanye West's shadow. Many of us first encountered Scott Mescudi as Kanye's foil on 2008's triumphantly dour "Welcome To Heartbreak," and Cudi's ambition to transcend the confines of hip-hop has long mirrored that… More »

Kanye Confirms Yeezus Film Coming To Theaters

Kanye West's Yeezus, Stereogum's favorite album of last year, is about to become a movie. Hype Williams, inarguably the greatest rap-video director of all time, has directed a movie about Kanye's Yeezus tour. Williams's only previous feature film was Belly, the narratively jangled but visually ravishing 1998 Nas/DMX vehicle, and it was alway… More »

Watch Kanye West Perform A Career-Spanning Medley On Late Night With Seth Meyers

Last time Kanye West was on late-night TV, he embarked on an epic monologue while Jimmy Kimmel looked on in amusement and/or amazement. Last time Kanye performed music on late-night TV, he brought an astounding take on "Bound 2" to Fallon. Before that, he unleashed a "Black Skinhead" blitzkrieg on SNL ("New… More »

James Blake Teases Kanye Collab

Over the past year or so, James Blake has threatened to take over the Coldplay Memorial Spot as every rapper's favorite non-rap artist. In an interview last year, Kanye West referred to Blake as "Kanye's favorite artist" (he used the third person), and we may soon get to hear what happens with the two get… More »

Bonnaroo Lineup 2014

Like last year, Bonnaroo is announcing the bulk of its fest lineup via a 30-minute B.L.A.M. (Bonnaroo Line-Up Announcement Megathon) webcast. The 2014 reveal is hosted by comedians Hannibal Buress and Taran Killam and features a super jam with the Flaming Lips, Ben Folds, and special guests (I'm guessing Foxygen based on thisMore »

Hear Hudson Mohawke Reveal The Original Version Of Kanye’s “Bound” Feat. Tyler, The Creator

Producer Hudson Mohawke played what is believed to be the original version of Kanye West's "Bound 2" during his DJ set in Leeds on Saturday. Different from the released anthem that listeners will always remember for its Kim-on-a-motorcycle video, this version -- circulating under the name "Bound 1" -- is more piano-driven and feature… More »

Watch Kanye & Kim’s Epic Engagement As Seen On Keeping Up With the Kardashians

Last fall, Kanye proposed to Kim in appropriately grandiose fashion at San Francisco's AT&T Park. In front of Kim's family and friends, Ye popped the question while an orchestra played a rendition of Lana Del Rey's "Young And Beautiful." So far, we've only seen a shaky cellphone video that was quickly taken offline so that,… More »

Drake “Disgusted” With Rolling Stone For Giving His Cover To Philip Seymour Hoffman, Calls Kanye’s Lyrics “Questionable”

Yesterday, we learned that Drake had spoken ill of Macklemore to Rolling Stone. After Macklemore had defeated Kendrick Lamar (and Drake, and Kanye West, and Jay Z) for the Best Rap Album Grammy, Macklemore sent a text of apology to Kendrick and then shared that text on Instagram, an action Drake calls "wack… More »

Kanye West To Appear On Late Night With Seth Meyers‘ First Week

When Seth Meyers announced Andy Samberg's Golden Globes win, he called it "the best night ever," but I'm pretty sure it won't keep that title too long. Fresh off announcing the hiring of Fred Armisen as leader of the Late Night With Seth Meyers' band, now Meyers has got a pretty legit A-lister to… More »

The College Dropout Turns 10

Before he was the nucleus. Before he said "George Bush doesn't care about black people" on a nationally-broadcast telethon. Before a 2006 Rolling Stone cover depicted him as Christ, crown of thorns and blood and all, and a 2013 album christened him as Yeezus. Before he stormed the stage and let Taylor… More »
