Kid Cudi Discusses "808's & Heartbreak" with Complex

Click here to read Complex's interview with the newest G.O.O.D. Music artist.

Saturday, November 22, 2008

Kanye: "Hip-hop is over for me."

From an interview with “Hip-hop is over for me. I sing, not rap, on this album. I now want to be grouped among those musicians you see in those old black and white photos - the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles. And I'm not going to get there by doing just another rap album full of samples. I've had to create a whole new musical genre to describe what I'm doing now and I'm calling it 'pop-art' - which is not to be confused with the visual art movement. I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of a generation."
808's & Heartbreak is in stores Monday, 23 November 2008. As a fan of Kanye West the RAPPER, to me this is "Welcome to Heartbreak."

Saturday, November 1, 2008

L.U.P. end

Rap-up has reported on Lu's announcement that "L-U-P End" will be a three disc album! It is say that the disks will be named Everywhere, Nowhere, and Down Here, spelling E.N.D.
So I guess the title might actually be "LupE.N.D". which is weird because that is almost the same as the Black Eyed Peas next album, "The E.N.D." aka "The Energy Never Dies." I remember being like "oh weird" when I heard that 'cause it was similar to Lu's title. I still think Lu's next album might be called "L-U-P End" because that looks like when you get to put your initials when you get the high score on an arcade game.

Does Nelly Know?

Once again, Nelly is talking about a supergroup involving both himself and Pharrell. He mentions Akon, like last time, but this time he also throws T-Pain in there. I suppose it's possible...I don't really think so. Plus even if it's true, what a weird mix right? I think that Akon and T-Pain serve the same purpose in all their collaborations...
Yes, The Neptunes did do some production on Brass Knuckles, but I really don't think of Nelly and P as being hella close or having similar style or similar topics.

What's Up With Kanye

Alright so I know I haven't been updating much lately. I think it's gonna be like that for a while 'cause I am just trying to get my school work done. So before I go away I thought I'd summarize recent developments.
The second single from 808s & Heartbreak is Heartless. Listen to it here.
Kanye held a listening event at which he played all the tracks from 808s & Heartbreak while 40 naked models were there as decoration(see photos here). Here is the expected track list as reported by Rap-Up:

  1. "Welcome to Heartbreak"
  2. "Heartless" - 3:30
  3. "Love Lockdown" - 4:31
  4. "Robocop"
  5. "Anyway"
  6. "Streetlights"
  7. "Say You Will"
  8. "Real Bad News"
  9. "Amazing" (featuring Young Jeezy)
  10. "Tell Everybody That You Know" (featuring Lil Wayne)
  11. "Coldest Winter"
Plus at least two tracks are expected to feature Kid Cudi!!!
Here are some promotional images for the upcoming album: click me.
So it's pretty clear at this point that this album is all Auto-Tuned RnB, however Kanye has stated that he will have another album out in June of 2009! Hopefully it will be a rap album...
Also, Yeezy is on the remix of "Ego" of Beyonce's new album.
PS: The BBC blog wants everyone to know that N*E*R*D will NOT be appearing at VooDoo as planned. Sorry guys!

Sunday, October 19, 2008

Online Hip Hop Awards

I would just like to take some time to thank everyone who visits this blog. I really appreciate your support, whether it's hit counts, comments, or voting in a poll, it really makes my day to see people getting excited about CRS and the individual projects of Lu, Yeezy, and P.
This blog is just a baby, not even a year old, but I know a lot of people are dying to hear more from CRS just like I am. So, even though there are many other, bigger blogs out there and I know I currently do not have enough regular visitors to win, I would really like it if this blog could be nominated for the Online Hip Hop Awards. Initial nominations are going on now and you can submit a nominee to each category once every 24 hours.
I am asking for your support, not only to spread awareness of this blog, but make more people aware of the amazing collaboration that is CRS. You do have to register before you can nominate, but the cellphone number and carrier fields are NOT required, so if you don't like to give that out you don't have to.
If you are a fan of CRS or any of its individual members, I would love to have your support in nominating this blog in any of the Web categories you think it might deserve attention. Thank you so much for your help and also thank you for subscribing or regularly coming through or even just checking in once in a while.

Pharrell's Lyrics from Paris, Tokyo Remix

I got almost all of it...let me know if you think anything is wrong or you see something I missed.

Now, I’ve been known to levitate
Like a hobo tryna catch a freight
To get away
And clear the day
And I be smiling at the stars
Like the hood does cars
Little ghetto mind you should travel like a bullet
From your favorite gun’s barrel
Or the Indian’s arrow
Mathematically align
Like the pyramids and pharaohs
Don’t let them burn your mind
Like you in your boys’ kettle (?)
Fly to Paris and end up in Tokyo
Let’s start a coalition so even the broke can go
To all those that never sold coke before
And with no ambitions to rock or roll
Let my people go
To broaden their horizons
Sharpen all they minds and
Sharper than the prong on The Neptunes’ triden
I’m just ramblin’
I ride my bike in the clouds
Mr. Spielberg hire me an ambulance
To the nigga Pimp C
God bless your life
And the creators of the syrup
I hope you’re restin’ right
Because you screwed a lot of lives
Kids and wives
In my mind I’m going ‘boo-hoo’ just like the eyes
But in my mind
Compromise my design
Like a missing puzzle piece
Make completion hard to find [Thanks Ethan]
I was resuscitated by Capri-Sun juice packs
Woke up singing NERD songs
And you can YouTube that
Now stay away from people if the pursuit they lack
And remember your starter kit was this Lupe track
Now one love, one love, one love,
Hey love
See you in Tokyo

Love Lockdown is said to be the first single and is expected to be available on iTunes on Monday, September 8th. Well, maybe.

" I guess someone doesn't know what he is talking about.

Live Through This: Kanye West

Here's clip from the upcoming episode all about the car crash that nearly killed Kanye and inspired "Through the Wire."
"'Live Through This: Kanye West' premieres Aug. 9 at 11 p.m. on Fuse TV (Ch. 56 on Cablevision)."

Off The Preview Mixtape/Off Topic

I'm glad I'm not the only person who thinks "that robot thingie" is way over-used. I understand if you wanna use it in the chorus of like ONE song, but don't have that be your whole style like T-Pain. As for Lil Wayne...Lolipop Remix is was better than the original 'cause he has an actual VERSE in which he raps and doesn't have the vocalizer on the entire time like he does in the original. I'd like to atleast hear his actual voice ONCE in a while on his song.

On Set of the CRS Video, Pharrell Says He's Going Bollywood

Click here to read an article by an interview who got a chance to speak with Pharrell on the set of the "Everyone Nose" remix shoot. Here's the website of Eros International, an Indian movie entertainment company.

N*E*R*D at the Fillmore

The show last night was AWESOME. I got about as close to the front as I did at the Jimmy Kimmel Live performance. Man, it was packed up there. I could barely move. Anyway, I did not get on stage, but it was still amazing and awesome and the crowd was a cool group. There were points when everyone would get pushed in one direction and be falling on each other, but then the crowd would push back and we'd be back on balance again. They performed "Maybe," which I was kinda hoping for, but really not expecting. The band was awesome as always, doing there awesome live mashup of "Seven Nation Army" and "Everyone Nose."
Here is the SF weekly review. It's pretty detailed and also has pictures. I saw the guy who was taking the pictures for the BBC Blog, so hopefully those will be up soon.

Pharrell and Common Shooting a Video

The BBC blog has a new post titled "Common Video Shoot" with pictures of P and Common on the set of a music video. Common's album "Invinsible Summer," produced by The Neptunes, will be released on September 23rd. The first single will be Universal Mind Control featuring Pharrell. This is probably the song that the video is for, however Pharrell is also featured on the tracks Announcement and Gladiator.

Kanye to Interview Veterans

MTV and Gigwise are reporting that Kanye will be interviewing Iraq war veterans on a new documentary show called "Choose or Lose & Kanye West Present: Homecoming."
From Gigwise: "'There are hundreds of veterans out there who are falling through the cracks. They make the ultimate sacrifices for us by laying down their lives, but it seems like a lot of them just get forgotten about,' West said in a statement."

Apparently Page Six has reported that Pharrell is going to be a father. You can read more about it here, here, and here.
I'm gonna see Pharrell later today, but even if I have the chance, I won't ask him about it. I did see a tall, black female hanging out with him back stage before the Jimmy Kimmel Live performance, but she was very thin and not at all pregnant-looking. Also, she was just sitting there with P and a few other guys, not looking like she was the girlfriend of any of them.

New Nas

Kanye linked one of three new Nas songs leaked today. Check out Queens Get The Money, You Can't Stop Us Now, and Breathe.
Oh Shit. I didn't know "Black President" was gonna be an official track. That's awesome.

Comment if you can help complete these lyrics. I don't think anyone has transcribed them yet.
Queens Get The Money by Nas

'Ey, yo
Queens get the money
Niggas still screaming, paper chasin’
While presidential candidates is planning wars with other nations
Over stake with masons
Pregnant teens give birth to intelligent gangsters—they daddies faceless
Play this, by your stomach, let my words massage it and rub it
I’ll be his daddy if there’s no one there to love it
Tell him his name Nasir
Tell him how he got here
Mama was just havin’ fun with someone above her years

Niggas is still hatin’
Talkin’ that Nas done fell off with rhymin’
He rather floss with diamonds
They pray “Please, God, let him spit oozy in the army linin’”
Now, shorty do I roll with twenty oo-wops in the park reclinin’
Take twenty-seven MCs
Put them in a line
And they out of alignment
My assignment since he said retirement
Hidin’ behind 8-Mile and The Chronic
Get rich or die rhymin'
This is hot science

Now add twenty-three more
From Queens to B-more
I’m over they heads
Like a bulimic on a see-saw
Now that’s fifty porch monkeys ate up at the same time
Nasty Nas that
Y’all gone bow homes
It’s Dow Jones
Eighty cal chrome
Needed time alone to zone
The Mac left his iPhone and his nine at home
My queen used the milk shake to bring y’all to my slaughter houses
I do this for the group-home kids and boarding houses

This that nigga shit that’s on the album
For them niggas that’s inside the chalk line and forty houses
Bring back Arsenio
Hip hop was aborted so Nas breathes life back into the embryo
Let us make men in our image
Spit it
I’m Hughie P and Louie V at the eulogy
Throwing molotovs for Emmett
You ain’t as hot as I is
All of these false prophets is not messiahs
You don’t know how high the sky is, the square mileage of Earth, or what pi is
I’m the shaky hand that touched George Foreman
In Zaire
The same hand that punched down devils that brought down the towers

"Where Do I Go?" and "Mass Appeal" both here.
"Cold World"

"Gotta Pose"

More Pharrell/Common Collaboration

Go here to listen to "Announcement" by Common featuring Pharrell.
Wikipedia has some conflicting information right now, but its possible this and "Universal Mind Control" are from an album that will be released on July 10th, while the Invincible Summer project remains on track for September 23. OR maybe these tracks are from Invincible Summer and it will be released on July 10th? I'll let you know when I get it figured out.

Spaz as the next single offf Seeing Sounds

So if you haven't already heard, Spaz is going to be the next single of Seeing Sounds. While in line to get my CD signed at Virgin in Hollywood, I saw what I am pretty sure was part of the video shoot. It's gonna be a bunch of crazy cool dancers. They were filming in various locations around the Hollywood Highland center. I was like "is this for" and this woman who seemed to be in charge was like "uhh it's for lot's of things." Then I realized they were only dancing to Spaz...and I'm like "ooohhhh the music video!" but they wouldn't really answer me.

The Neptunes Track for Converse

Pharrell is part of a celebration of 100 years of Chuck Taylors. Click here to listen to the song produced by The Neptunes and featuring Julian Casablanca and Santogold, created for this occasion.

They Wish?

Click here to read about Akon and Nelly talking about making a super group with Pharrell.

Maybe it's possible, but I have lost respect for Nelly since his comeback single lacked any actual rapping. Mostly it's just he and Fergie shouting and that shouting being played at a bunch of different speeds. I enjoy my share of high-production-value dance songs, but that's not really what I want to hear from Nelly. As for Akon, he has been accused of attempting to make his past appear more criminal, in order to build credibility. Lying about jail time to try to seem "cool"? Ew...
But I don't know, "Hot In Herre" was a huge success so maybe Pharrell would work with those guys...

Lyrics-CRS Remix of "Everyone Nose"

CRS Remix of "Everyone Nose"

Hey, do you have any black inside you?
Would you like some?
You know you got a right to
Do whatever you like to
Don C, we got that right one
That right one in the club
Always the flyest
Always got her hands the highest
She stopped drinking diet coke
She on that coke diet
She bat- she bat her eyelids
That girl is so wired
I know she’s so tired
But, ooh she’s on fire
Hundred dollar bills
Look at you
Look at you
Hundred dollar bills
This ain’t new
This ain’t new
From that Paris, Lindsay, Britney
Mary Kate, and Whitney
People say that they clean
Mother fucker, don’t bull-shit me!

All the girls standing in the line for the bathroom
All the girls standing in the line for the bathroom
All the girls standing in the
All the girls standing in the
All the girls standing in the line for the bathroom

You left your nigga home
You said you at your sister’s
You and your girlfriends roam (wrong?)
You in here takin’ pictures
You ain’t gotta tell us
You spending Daddy’s cash
Your girlfriend’s jealous
You got the fattest ass
One down to pee
One tryin’a leave
It’s hot as fuck
But you just dyin’a ski
It’s plain as black and white
Like a fat panda
Your brain is Magic City
Your nose is Atlanta
I say think ‘bout your future
You can’t do this tomorrow
You don’t hear a word
You see that SLR-oh
You like
Hey Pharrell
I ain’t tryin’a kill your mood
But I can do the Star Trak sign
Killa dude

All the girls standing in the line for the bathroom
All the girls standing in the line for the bathroom (On fire)
All the girls standing in the
All the girls standing in the
All the girls standing in the line for the bathroom

Now she got high hopes
Just to say hi to us
She want the high life
She like them higher-ups
She know we high rollin’
She know it’s high stakes
That’s why she high speedin’
Out on that high way
She say she high maintenance
She say she high fashion
She say she high price
I think she high cappin’
She had her high heels
I had my high tops
Sippin’ the Hi-C
Eatin’ hydrox
I asked her how it feel
Up on this high rise
She said this high score
This was the high life
She got her high-pod
Bumpin’ her high-tunes
This higher education
Welcome to high school

All the girls standing in the line for the bathroom
All the girls standing in the line for the bathroom (On fire)
All the girls standing in the
All the girls standing in the
All the girls standing in the line for the bathroom

I could use some help with the first part of Push-T’s verse. He’s doing some play on words with “key” and “okay” I think. I can’t quite follow. I’ll spend some more time on it later. Also, as you can see, there is a place in Lupe's verse where I dunno what he's saying because I think he is putting the word "high" into other words, but I'm not sure. Thoughts? Thanks for your patience!

Kanye on the Lolipop Remix

We got a little preview of it when we saw the video of Kanye playing Connect Four with Jonah Hill, and now the full version is here! Click here to go to 'Ye's blog and listen!
I really don't have a problem with Kanye using effects on his voice once in a while. He did a lot of T-Pain's line when he performed "Good Life" at TGITDT. I hope Lil' Wayne's next single has some actual verses with out that computer shit. It's definitely being over-done.

Drama with CRS?

Okay, so I'm not gonna comment on these articles, so judge them for yourself.
Supposed Lu / Ye disagreement
Past article on Lupe from the same author.

CRS plus Pusha-T of the Clipse on "Everyone Nose" Remix

You need to go to Kanye's Blog now! He has posted the remix of everyone nose featuring Lupe, himself, and Pusha-T of the Clipse! Waaah! Some CRS collaboration, finally! Click here to listen!!!
Kanye says this is not the final mix, but he will have that for us soon. I wonder if they will use all those verses and add more or N*E*R*D's lyrics. Hmm I dunno maybe it will stay with just their verses and then the chorus. I will do another lyrics meaning post if there is enough interest in this song. How do you like it?

New Madonna Leaked, Kanye and Alexis Reportedly Split

About half of the tracks off of Madonna's upcoming album have been leaked, including work with Pharrell. Perez Hilton made a post about it here.
Blackvoices is reporting that Kanye and Alexis have ended their engagement. The article goes on to speculate on future possibilities in Kanye's romantic life. Also, an article over at sohh is saying they broke up in fall 2006, but that doesn't make any sense. Maybe it's just a typo. Fall 2007 would be a bit more believable. Who knows? Not me.

Lupe Fiasco Meets Sway--Link to MySpace video

This was just linked on the FNF blog. It includes Lupe saying some of the things about CRS that were quoted in my last two posts. I really enjoyed this video. I liked the questions and the answers from both Lu and Sway. Except, of course, I don't like to hear Lupe's stuff about retiring, but I'm glad Sway said what he said 'cause that's my reaction too.

Upcoming from The Neptunes

Check out this article from Six Shot describing the filming of the video for Busta's first single off his new album. The first single is a collaboration with Linkin Park. The upcoming album, titled "I'm Blessed," will include a track produced by The Neptunes. Originally titled "Before Hell Freezes Over" and then changed to "Back on My BS," the album is expected to be released in the second quarter of 2008 (Wiki: "I'm Blessed").

More from Lu on CRS

Click here for the MTV article that included the following quotes from Lupe:
"So, I did a song. Took Thom Yorke's 'Eraser,' cut it up, put 'Us Placers' on it, because I was going to do a mixtape called Us Placers and remake Thom Yorke's album [The Eraser] and Radiohead's stuff. I sent the record out, and it was initially supposed to have Kanye, and I wanted [U.K. artist] the Streets [on there]. The Streets, I got no response. He asked me to do the song for one of his artists. Then Kanye jumped on it and was like, 'I'm going to send it to P.' Then P sent it back, and it was like, 'This is the first song right here. Let's do it.' That was, like, a year and a half ago, and the whole time we've been figuring out what to do."
"We don't know if there's going to be an album from CRS, what CRS are going to be," he said. "All we know is we're going to debut a piece of CRS on the Kanye tour. You have to come see it."

Lupe also promised that "Us Placers" will be performed soon.

"We're gonna debut CRS on the tour." -Lu

BBC's interview with Lupe actually gives us some new information! Awesome.

"Lupe said: 'It was Pharrell's idea one day in the studio 'cause we're all similar, same likes and same dislikes, same goals and aspirations.'
'So on that level we wanted to create some music. But we haven't actually been in the studio together, everything we did separately and just emailed it to each other.'
But Lupe has revealed that all three are on the road in May.
He said: 'The stars aligned for us all to go on tour this summer for Glow in the Dark in the US, so we're gonna debut CRS on the tour.'"

In the blogosphere: now redirects to the FNF blog on Lupe's official site. It was previously a blog by someone who seemed to be from Lupe's inner circle. It randomly stopped being updated a while ago.
