The wait is finally over . . . its been a long time coming Teyana Taylor’s debut album Vll dropped today and needless to say it was worth the wait.
Some of you may remember back in back in 2007 when Teyana was featured on MTV’s
“My Super Sweet 16” and was taking under the wing of Pharrell Williams leading her to sign with his Star Trak label. Things started off on the right track for the singer, however in 2012 the two went their separate ways and Teyana signed a deal with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music.
After a public altercation with singer Rihanna, losing her Adidas sneaker deal and ending a long term relationship with NBA baller Brandon Jennings, it’s no wonder why Tey has a lot to be thankful for.
“It’s been seven years and everything is finally coming together at once … It just reminds me of when they say God puts you through so much to get you prepared for a big blessing.”
She stated during a interview with HipHollywood.
Her 14 track album features artist such as Chris Brown, Fabolous, Pusha T and Yo Gotti. Vll is available for purchase and can be streamed below !
You Got The Sauce So You Drippin Swagu
Yeezy is definitely a man of style, the 37 year old rapper covers August’s issue of GQ Magazine for a second time.
Although GQ has not released any highlights from the interview Kanye chats about how to grow up, survive a wedding, staying outrageous and dressing like a GOD. Looking poise in his white tee, gold chain and tan jacket we can already tell this is going to be a good interview. (Its very rare Yeezy does an interview).
Currently Ye’ is reportedly in Puerto Vallarta recording his album. West too was added to the “Budweiser Made In America” Festival in L.A, where he will also headline the Philadelphia concert on August 30.
Magazine hits stores July 29.
Earlier today Kanye West stopped by Kris Jenner’s show and sat down for an in depth interview with Kris. And as we all known Kanye West is NOT here for the interviews, but I guess dating her daughter, Kim Kardashian it was only right.
Kanye West was not just there to promote or even show off baby North but in honor of her grandmother’s season finale the picture was revealed. Getting to see a positive side of Kanye West was very refreshing as he said he was there to “redeem himself.”
The 36 year-old rapper/producer talked about growing up in an educated, yet artistic household. He revealed his father was a professional photographer and his mother held a lead position as the Chair of the English Department at Chicago State University. West also shared that he can actually speak Chinese. Kanye also admitted to having fault in the Taylor Swift VMA Award fiasco.
Peep the picture below and a few highlights from the show
On the first time meeting Kim Kardashian
I’m trying to remember if the first time we met was her being in the studio when she was Brandy’s assistant, and I think she brought us in, like, something to drink,” he said. “Or it might’ve been when I was doing Brandy’s video and I remember asking my manager, ‘Who is that girl right there?’ … I was in love with her before I even got to talk to her.” (more…)
In the midst of all the hype surrounding Big Sean’s “Control” track, Big Sean has put out the visuals for his current single “Beware” off his Hall Of Fame album.
The video directed by Matthew Williams from Kanye West’s DONDA team. The visuals are very much trippy which reminded us of Kanye West’s “Heartless” video (hence DONDA).
Hall Of Fame drops August 27th, watch the video below
As much as Kanye has made it clear that North West is his and Kim Kardashian’s child and not Americas and he does not want his daughter in the public eye, Kris Jenner, Kim’s mother thought it would be a good idea to use a baby on her show Kris to capitalize off North West for show ratings. Kris Jenner uploaded the above picture on her Instagram with the caption that read “You never know who will stop by our show today #WatchKris.”
And long and behold come to find out the baby that Kris was actually holding with her stylist Monica Rose’s son, Salvador Lukas.
Word is that Kris is in the same time slot as Ellen DegGeneres – hopefully she won’t pull no more stunts like this. SMH!
You would think by now the Paparazzi would learn to leave Kanye West alone, but you gon learn today ! A reporter from TMZ pressed Kanye West as he arrived at LAX where he proceeded to give Kanye props for his music. Yeezy instantly became annoyed as he put his hand over the camera cutting the cameraman off mid-sentence thanking him for the support but advising him no to speak to him or speak to anyone he knows for that matter.
Apparently Ye’s request went unheard as the camera man still rambled on forcing Ye to launch at him.
Did Kanye West take it to far or should the cameraman have respected his wishes ?
