Jamie Foxx Speaks On Kanye West And Challenges He Has Had Regarding His Own Mental Health (Video)

Know what… if all the convo about Kanye’s actions and reactions serves to heighten awareness and sensitivity regarding mental health, esp. in the Black community, then maybe it will all be worth it. Got to be more than fodder for memes, right? Plus, look. Got Jamie Foxx giving his perspectives on mental health.

Jamie Foxx is known for his comedy, singing and Oscar-winning acting, but what you may not know is that, similar to his friend Kanye West, Foxx experienced his own mental health episode. Luckily, he had people in his corner to hold him down.

GLC Says Kanye West Defines Success As Being Embraced By White People (Video)

Don’t know if this is all real talk, sneak dissing, some dry snitching or what… but this word on Yeezus comes from a [likely former] homie of his who would know. Rapper GLC came up with Yeezy in The Go Getters crew back in Chicago back in the day. Well, GLC interviewed with The Chicago Morning Takeover show, and spilled a big bowl of Kanye beans – on everything from the hospitalization to the new hair coloring (blonde) of Ye.

Hey, we all have our weirdness; whether in phases or on the daily. But the most damning shot GLC might have let fly is alleging Kanye’s life goal of turning in his hood pass.

He equated success to being accepted by the caucasian masses. So if the caucasian people embraced him, that means he made it.

Kanye West – “Bed Yeezy Season 5” feat. The-Dream

So. You got 17 minutes to check out some new music from Kanye West. He did something with The-Dream, flipping a track orginally done up by The-Dream (“Bed”, yeah the J. Holiday jawn)… calling it “Bed Yeezy Season 5”… and it’s out there but in there at the same time. Hard to explain, which makes it par for the Kanye course, right?

Think of this as an extended play for some extended play at the crib. Call bae. Test drive the track.


Ras Kass – “Kanye Moments” (Prod. By C-Dash) [Video]

Verrry interesting. And dope! Prince of Parody, Sultan of Spoof, and all-around funny dude Affion Crockett brought his talents to bear for Ras Kass’ cause… of poking fun at Kanye West… while turning out good, music on “Kanye Moments” to which we can all relate. Ras is just speaking on the frustrations he/we have (with the industry or what have you) when trying to do what he/we do but still cannot really break through despite our best efforts.

We all have those moments where we spazz out, go on a tirade, and speak our #facts. Ras uses a trap beat to vent about the current issues in Rap while parodying some (in)famous Kanye West incidents. produced by C-Dash, hook by Atlanta’s Chiccen. Videography by @BZfilmz (Numskull of the Luniz starring as Kanye, and more…).

Warning (imagine sarcastic air quotes around that): This vid contains actual “Kanye Moments” (haaa, you don’t got the answers)!

Consequence Says He Ghostwrote For Jay-Z? (Video)

Not Jay Hova. Nope. Maybe? If so, this is big! According to Bossip and others’ interpretations, Cons said on Power 106 that he and Kanye West actually came up with the verses for “Encore” off “The Black Album.” Is he saying that Jay wasn’t even involved in conceiving the rhyme? Is this a slip or shade? Most important to the Hip-Hop: Is it TRUE?

See the interview for yourself above. Lean in at about the 8-minute mark…

Kanye Keeps It Real With Ellen (Video)

Kanye West went School Of Life professor on Ellen’s audience. Teach! As much as clips show up across the ‘webs of Yeezy going loose cannon, from Kanye’s canon (delivered in clips like this) folks could really learn to live life with passion. Passion that he speaks AND demonstrates…

I care about people. I care about… My Dad lived in homeless shelters less than five years ago… to find out he’s a psych major. My Mom was the first Black female chair of the English Department of Chicago State University. I was raised to do something; to make a difference!
Kanye West

Check out a clip of Kanye’s sit-down with Ellen. More after the jump.
