Kanye West Speaks On New Album, Drake, Paul McCartney, Having More Children & Fashion with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe (Video)

Hahaaaa! Check out another interesting interview of Kanye with BBC 1 Radio’s Zane Lowe as the Chicago icon discusses everything from the possibility of having more kids, the direction of his new album, dealing with the fashion industry, giving props to Drake & more.

Kanye West is the greatest hip hop artist of this generation & he consistently proves it. A keen attention to detail, socially relevant commentary within his music, an a willingness to take risks.

Comedy: Terry Crews And Jimmy Fallon ‘Nip Sync’ A Classic (Video)

Bring Terry Crews into pretty much any situation and turn him loose, and hilarity will ensue. But pair him up with the clown prince of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon, and you have a unique brand of silliness on tap. No tap, but check out the duo ‘performing’ Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney’s tender soul classic “Ebony and Ivory” in a … “manly” way. Crazy. Crazy!

CORRECTION: This is a ‘nip sync’ duet (perhaps the first ever)!
