Besides announcing he will be running for president in 2020 on the this years MTV Music Awards, Kanye West has been building the buzz around his upcoming album Swish. After sporadically tweeting a mysterious link a few days ago, many jumped to conclusions about what it could be, primarily suspecting it had to do with new music. Tragically, the link led fans to an interview he conducted with ShowStudio, mostly speaking about fashion.
Today the beautiful thing we call the internet further shows just how much time some people have on their hands when one YouTube user uploaded a video of what we all truly wanted; Kanye talking to himself about his own music.
The laugh-out-loud funny, 4 minute video consists of a chopped up version of his recent interview with ShowStudio that has Kanye debating against Kanye on the ranking of his past albums. Leave your comments below and enjoy!
Kanye West Ranks His Own Albums
It’s no secret that Griz loves weed, and it’s no surprise that the Detroit native relocated to beautiful Boulder, Colorado. He recently took his weed smoking to the next level by teaming up with Native Roots dispensary to have his own strain of weed appropriately called “Griz Kush.” It’s every stoner’s dream to have a weed strain named after you, and his strain actually went on to win this year’s cannibis cup, which is Colorado’s premier weed competition/convention.
Here we have a a mini-documentary about Griz Kush showing a behind the scenes look as he talks weed and music in his home studio and at the grow-op. He talks how weed interacts with music and explains how weed helps him hone in creativity and goes on to explain "it's kinda coincidental that right when I started smoking weed I started making music. It’s helps me calm down mentally.” Those of you in town for his Red Rocks show should stop by the dispensary and grab some of that Griz Kush as the perfect mood setter for the night.
Trap frontrunners Flosstradamus officially "made it" as they joined the ranks of artists who've chatted with hysterical Toronto based interviewer Narduar. The king of digging up things about his interviewees about subjects they had forgotten blew Josh & Curt away, and gave them some classic gifts while they reminisced. It's pretty hilarious to see the Floss guys in such a hilarious light. Watch below and enjoy!

Skrillex has jump started his 2014 by taking a trip down under to perform a string of shows in Australia while jumping in the studio with Flume and Emoh Instead of What So Not. The Grammy winning Producer / DJ made a pit stop at the infamous Triple J radio studio’s and shared juicy details on what he has in store for the music community, the first time he “lost his shit” seeing Daft Punk live, and hitting the studio with Flume and Emoh of What So Not (pictured above).
“I’ll be seeing Flume into the studio tomorrow, so maybe we’ll make something, who knows?…. I mean technically What So Not is the artist on the [Shore Thing] lineup, so maybe we can do some stuff with all of us”
By the sound of it, Skrillex is fully motivated to finish up music for his next big release which should be his debut album and it’s only a matter of time before we’re hit by another surprise attack of new music. Check out the interview below and watch Skrillex going b2b with What So Not live in Sydney, Australia! Enjoy
