Watch Kanye West & Jay-Z Perform at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Mere hours ago one of the most wonderful events of the year took place–the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show–and much to my chagrin, CBS decided to let a musical act interrupt the sexiness yet again.  Though, they did pick some heavy hitters to steal the spotlight away from the real stars of the night; Kanye West, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, and Maroon 5 all graced the stage to perform some of their hottest tracks.  Kanye hit the stage first and gave a very tight-jeaned 1992 performance of “Stronger” then was joined by a leisure suit wearing Jay-Z to spit out “N*ggas in Paris”.  It was hyped up but I’m not sure I’m going to get over interrupting the sexy.  Seems like a pretty unforgivable decision as far as I’m concerned, but alas, I figure I should give you guys the chance to check out the show.  Also, I’m pretty sure there are at least a couple candid shots of those so, so, so beautiful models in there, so that’s a plus.  Jump and enjoy.

Review: Kanye West & Jay-Z – ‘Watch The Throne’ (Album)

Have you ever anticipated an album so adamantly that when it dropped it could never live up to the pedestal you sat it on? I assumed that would be the case with Kanye and Hov’s Watch The Throne and I was undoubtedly wrong. The collaborative duo has not only produced an album worthy of buying, but has created a sound that can only move hip-hop further. Based off of pre-determined, biased mind-states, reviews of what the album would be have ranged from absolute bust to instant classic. But now after listening thru the album twice it is without a doubt the latter. With features from Beyonce to Oddfuture’s Frank Ocean, and production from RZA to the Neptunes, Watch The Throne brings hip-hop fans a truly comprehensive album that combines raw beats, thought-provoking songs and real rap.

U2 (Feat. Jay-Z) – “Sunday Bloody Sunday” (Live)

This track is epic, and Jay’s verse on this is real, props for the Bob Marley quote. It’s just the live version for now, hopefully we get a mastered studio version sometime after U2‘s U2: Duals drops. Apparently you have to subscribe to U2′s fan club to get the LP and it’s going to be limited edition. I’d rather not though, hopefully they put out a physical copy and release it on iTunes as well, it’s going to make its way out there any way. There are other ways to get with the internet generation. Props to Miss Info & The Hip Hop Update.
