Sean Price – “S.E.A.N.”

One of my favorite emcees from Brooklyn, Sean Price is back freestylin’ over the beat from the classic Beanie Sigel song “The Truth” that Kanye West produced.  It’s STILL ‘The Truth’ but it’s all ‘S.E.A.N.’ !  It’s a definite appetizer to get heads ready for his upcoming project ‘Songs In The Key Of Price.’ I can dig it! P!!!!!!!!

Jay-Z & Kanye Snub Indie Stores

Record Store Day penned a letter to Jay-Z and Kanye asking them to provide independent record stores the same opportunity to sell the Watch the Throne album as Best Buy and iTunes have. These big chains get the exclusive right to sell the album 4 days before the physical release of the album and the indie stores can’t compete with that advantage.
Best Buy has the exclusive deluxe edition of the album for 10 days before anybody else can sell it. People hoping to buy the album are made to buy the album from only these big chains and the mom and pops suffer.

Q-Tip Brings Out Kanye West at The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival (Video)

Sooooooooo I literally fly to NYC this weekend but wound up spending more time hanging with family in NY, NJ, & Philly so basically I missed the BK Hip Hop festival. Q-Tip had mentioned on twitter than he had a special surprise, but we don’t think anyone expected Kanye to come out on stage. From what I heard even the on-duty cops were taking pictures when Kanye came out on stage.

Kanye x Jay-Z – Watch the Throne (Tracklist & Studio Pics)

Kanye West Gets Intimate With The Essence Music Festival Crowd (Video)

It seems like damn near all of Atlanta went to the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans. A number of people I saw on twitter talked about Kanye West’s performance. Some people were dissing it, but after I watched this video it was clear to me that Kanye was just amongst family. If you’re touring all over the world you can’t get intimate with fans like this who don’t really know you. I guess that’s why Kanye also explained why he also doesn’t talk to the press anymore. Can’t knock the brother for trying to do something different by playing with the crowd who knows good black music & probably knows him best. Plus the Essence Music Festival organizers probably couldn’t afford Kanye’s million dollar performance fees & he may have wanted to participate in some capacity for his core audience.
