Diplo calls out Dame Dash for allegedly shopping his beats to Kanye WestDiplo Dame Dash

On a video promoted by Kanye West, Dame Dash is pitching a beat he calls his own to Mr. West. Dash is seen feeling this beat for a total of one minute and 17 seconds, selling Kanye on his creative genius. Unfortunately for the co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records, that song isn’t his. It’s Diplo‘s from his 2004 album, Florida, “Sarah.

Dash says in the video, “Yo, bro. I’ma send you this beat. Don’t talk that shit talkin’ bout you ready to rap, had me come cook some shit up, get in the lab. We make shit up. I’m in the studio, making motherfucking records, and I got more, so just let me know. You have to respect my creativity in this motherfucker. I’m only telling you this to get you hyped over this shit. I’ma email this shit to you. Let this shit get your mind right.”

Hyping up his genius creativity and ownership for over a minute became cringeworthy once the Mad Decent label boss called him out Twitter. The fake Diplo account created for Vice’s comedy What Would Diplo Do?

Kanye West surprise releases new single, ‘XTCY’ with DJ Clark Kent

Kanye West surprise releases new single, ‘XTCY’ with DJ Clark KentKanye West June 24 2018 Billboard 1548

Kanye West kicked off the weekend with a new track entitled “XTCY.” After spending his Friday night in the studio with DJ Clark Kent – venerated hip-hop producer with Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt among his Hall of Fame-worthy credits – the pair decided to release their new piece of work nearly immediately.

“XTCY” is the first single to follow the high-profile release of West’s latest album, ye, but features some aftereffects of the Wyoming Sessions in its cadence and style. First, there is the abrasive, but definitively hypnotic production style from Kent. With flow added into the mix with lines like “We gon’ score 100 on this drug test,” and a racy opener about his sisters-in-law, the sardonic lyricism does something to the track as a whole that only Kanye West can accomplish — and it works in the most addicting way.

The track is available via WeTransfer, but an altruistic fan has shared the track on SoundCloud for all to stream.

Kanye and Kid Cudi deliver highly anticipated joint album ‘KIDS SEE GHOSTS’ [Stream]

This post was originally published on this site

Kanye West officially decreed we’re in for a G.O.O.D. summer, announcing via Twitter a slate of five albums that his camp would be delivering across the month of June, starting with Pusha T’s vicious Daytona, immediately followed by Kanye’s long-awaited eighth studio product, ye which debuted at a live listening party in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on June 1. Perhaps even more tantalizing was the confirmation of a joint album between Yeezy and fellow hip-hop trailblazer Kid Cudi. Keeping good on the schedule, Kanye and Cudi have delivered their first full-length collaboration, KIDS SEE GHOSTS.

As with Pusha and Kanye’s previous offerings, Cudi and Ye’s new LP follows the same seven-track design, all wrapped up in cover art by Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami. The record, which continues tropes from West’s ye, features a large supporting cast with contributions spanning from André 3000 to Ty Dolla $ign, including Ratatat’s E*Vax, Mos Def, and posthumous credits from late New Orleans jazz figure Louis Prima, and Kurt Cobain.

The album’s initial upload mislabeled the track titles and order on all DSPs, though you can find the official track list and stream KIDS SEE GHOSTS below.

1. Feel the Love
2. Fire
3. Fourth Dimension [ft. Louis Prima]

Recently, the future bass wunderkind released a new original piece in collaboration with fellow rising artists opvs and Andrew Ronck titled “Small Talk.” The track illuminates the trio’s deft production abilities, giving focus to airy vocal processing, sprightly beats, and glistening chord arrangements to create a blissful gem deserving of more worldwide attention.
