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.

The Hood Internet – “All Of the Lights²” (Ellie Goulding x Kanye West x Portland Cello Project)

Am I a huge fan of the mash-up?  No.  But can I appreciate when the mash-up is executed flawlessly?  Absolutely and that’s what I love about this Hood Internet mix.  It’s clearly chopped up but that really doesn’t do anything to degrade the song.  Ms. Goulding’s smoky vocals from her track “Lights” come through nice and clear alongside a nicely accentual but melodically-biting string section.  Give it a listen, I think it’s a head-nodder–jump and enjoy.  (Thanks to Pigeons & Planes)

Watch Kanye’s Entire Coachella 2011 Set

Ok, this is kind of interesting.  Here is Kanye West’s entire set from the recent Coachella Music Festival.  Kanye’s recent set has gotten a lot of acclaim and deservedly so–he pretty much kills it, seriously.  He really went light on ‘celebrity’ appearances from other artists and that may be seen as pretty risky behavior, but the chance he takes here really pays off in spades.  Check out his performance after the jump.
