I have Kanye West’s highly anticipated album Yeezus for you which is scheduled to be released on June 18, 2013. I’m super excited to listen to it expecially after hearing that Daft Punk collaborated on 3 cuts, including “Black Skinhead”. The artwork isn’t anything special IMO, it’s just a clear CD case and a red sticker that bears the album title. I’ve already mentioned Daft Punk but the album also features Skrillex, RZA, John Legend, Odd Future, James Blake, Jay Electronica, Scott, Ma$e, Chief Keef, Tyler, The Creator and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon. Oh and one last thing, if you look at the tracklist bellow, one of the track features God :P

#WhyiRespect: Lupe Fiasco - Jonylah Forever

I didn’t know about this story but Lupe pens a beautiful track for sad story. Thank you brother and #RIP #Jonylah


[Verse 1]

How bout them bullets ain’t slow you up

You ain’t really die, we watched you grow up

At 12 months you took your first steps

Awkwardly across the kitchen floor to your best

Your first breaths that we can call words

In your father’s lap on November 23rd

They were “live for me”, and he did for you

Flipped to Neutron and stayed inside the crib for you

And this commitment from your father

Imparted a deep sense of value you forever harbor

And we were all so proud as we seen you getting smarter

And bond grow deeper between a mother and a daughter

You were not a martyr

[Verse 2]

At six, you started reading whole books

At seven, you knew how a brain looked

And could roughly describe, all the different regions

Could tell when we was sick and even knew the reason

The world wasn’t at peace, gunfire every weekend

But you were hardly there, cause you was always leaving

Field museum planetarium aquarium

You saw something special in that tank you were starin’ in

And those moments as a little girl

You realized it was a bigger world

Bigger than the South Side, bigger than Chicago

You were bigger still wanted rims on your car, though

And big ass woofers in your car door

So you could wang like your daddy at the park eating sharks

Went to King where you were teased for being smart

Where you bumped into Hadiya teaching art

You live forever

[Verse 3]

At sixteen is when you got your scholarship

At twenty-two is when you got your doctorate

Even now it’s kind of hard to believe

But your father taught you work hard, and achieve

And you complied, accepted by every medical school you applied

But the coolest thing is when they offered you that high paying slot, you replied

"They need me in the hood" and that’s where you reside

Free clinic, nobody denied

And that’s where you heard the shots and quickly ran outside

And saw a man and a van and a bleeding baby in his hands

Fading fast, but you knew she could survive

Did everything you could to keep this girl alive

Stabilized until the ambulance arrived

And in that moment, where you gave your help

I bet you didn’t know that you saved yourself


Well a bit repetitive but nice album. Enjoy.
