Interview: Zane Lowe meets Kanye West 2015

"Yeezy season approachin' fcuk whatever ya'll be hearin" 

It's really that simple folks. Big up Ye for that performance at The Brits. Many people moaning about Ye getting Skepta, Boy Better Know, Stormzy, Krept & Konan and Novelist as part of the stage performance. The ironic thing is what artist from the uk *sorry for using this dirty word* Urban scene performed that night? Don't worry I'll wait.......... So embrace the fact that Ye got guys from the scene on stage and not fly in his boys from Chi-town. And he shouted out Skepta on a thing called a microphone which is used to communicate vocals, which means two things 1. People who weren't aware of Skepta (yes there's still some who aren't) have researched him since then 2. Who else would have shouted out Skepta that night? Why didn't Kanye let one of the guys spit? Because The Brits paid for a Kanye West performance and he was busy performing a brand new song.

Anyway the first interview took place in 2013, gave so many soundbites and insight into the mind of Ye. It's only right that arguably one of his most stripped interviews happens again, props to Zane for getting this interview again and having such a dope first one. Ye discusses many of the hot topics from Adidas to the Grammys and Beck. Ladies and gentlemen grab some popcorn, my guy Ye demands your attention again, it gets emotional!

Documentary: Noisey - The Psychedelic and Bizarre World Of iLoveMakonnen

The new wave of Atlanta stretches beyond the reach of Gucci Mane.

His smash single “Club Goin’ Up on a Tuesday” was remixed by Drake after its release last summer, and went on to be nominated for a Grammy. Since, he’s released songs with Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Gucci Mane, and more. In episode seven of Noisey Atlanta, Thomas enters Makonnen’s strange world, which is driven by peace, love, and mushrooms.
