Jay-Z jokingly interrupts Kanye West at the 2012 BET Awards during their acceptance speech for “Video of the Year.” Nice little jab to Kanye for his infamous interruption of Taylor Swift during the 2009 MTV VMAs.
Though My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was released late in 2010, Kanye West recently collaborated with filmmaker Ruth Hogben on a video for “Lost in the World,” a track that preludes closer “Who Will Survive in America?” with a variety of expertly used samples and a guest appearance by Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. This latest addition to MBDTF‘s legacy is a fantastic visual interpretation of the track’s multiple layers and overall dynamics.
After returning to his GOOD Friday offerings last month, Kanye West is back with another hot track. This remix of Chicago native Chief Keef’s single “I Don’t Like” features some major talent, including Big Sean, Pusha T, Jadakiss, and West himself. The result is a catchy crew banger that expands the original to phenomenal levels.
Kanye’s Nike Air Yeezy 2 has finally received a launch date. Mark your calendars for April 13, and get ready for the madness that will ensue across the world, as sneakerheads go ballistic trying to find a pair.

Just when you thought Kanye West couldn’t be any more vain then he already is, he comes out with a $180,000 18k yellow gold Tiret Watch with his own face on the dial! The watch uses over 8 karats of yellow, black, brown and white diamonds. I wanna hate, but I can’t though because it’s pretty sick!
Kanye West has a 30 minute full length film for his upcoming album Runaway, featuring Selita Ebanks wearing a half naked bird outfit. Rather than trying to explain the film, MTV has a great breakdown of the why’s and what’s.
Kanye West closed last night’s 2010 MTV VMAs with his incredible new song, “Runaway.” It was a stunning performance, packed with surreal white-draped stage show, ballerinas and special guest MC Pusha T. But most of all, what Kanye’s VMA performance did was put the spotlight back where it belongs: on Kanye West’s music..
