Last Friday night, Kanye West basically shut down the entire Internet (maybe the world!) when he world premièred the song and video for "New Slaves," projecting the video on buildings in major cities around the world.
Yeezus drops on June 18th and we are extremely excited. Famed DJ Tim Westwood must have been pretty excited too, because late last night he unearthed some previously unreleased footage of a 2005-Late Registration-Kanye West freestyling.
Earlier in the week a rumor hit the net (from the BBC, mind you) that Kanye West was going to name his new album I Am God. Given Kanye's ego, it's not hard to believe that this couldn’t be somewhat true.
Sean had a show in Brixton, London, and during his set, the rapper debuted a new track off the album called "Fire." Well, debut is a generous word. The rapper only played a couple of seconds of the track before turning it off.
In the video, which was shot in 2003, and which is titled "Like Son, Like Mother," you see the late Donda West trying to remember an old Kanye verse. She forgets a couple of parts, but for the most part she has the lyrics down pat.
