Kanye West is my favorite hip hop artist right now, and actually, he has been for a while. Sure, he’s got his issues, but the bottom line is that he makes great music. And what I love about him most right now is that he’s completely embracing the internet rap scene during his comeback by joining Twitter (which even the New York Times is calling the hip hop’s new medium for choice words) and also by releasing FREE MUSIC! And these aren’t just some bullshit throwaway tracks, these are DOPE SONGS with BIG NAME FEATURES like Jay-Z, Beyonce, Common, Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber, Raekwon, etc. So far, he’s released five free songs as part of his G.O.O.D. Fridays series (G.O.O.D. Music is his record label, get it?) and they’re all tight. My favorite is his solo effort “Devil In A New Dress” (see cover above). It sounds like these are going to continue into November, which is when he plans on dropping his new album. I’m very excite!
So stay tuned every Friday for a new Kanye West release, and get the first five for free HERE by simply entering an email address.

Thanks for the free music ‘Ye! Keep it coming!
Kanye debuted another new song last night at the VMA’s (see pic above), featuring Pusha T of The Clipse. Dope performance. Watch it HERE, and get the song, “Runaway”, which they just released after the award show, HERE.
Oh shit, and Jay-Z brought Kanye West out to perform at his Yankee Stadium shows the past two nights. Peep the footage (low quality but worth checking out) HERE.
