Kanye will rule the world...

Taking a small break from 'Arcadia'... I'm pretty much writing everyday now, so I figure I'll keep my fingers nimble by writing non-stop, and hook you guys up with some non-British goodies.

I didn't watch the VMA's last night. Why? Because I could give a fuck. I don't mean that in a 17 year old raging against corporate America type way... fuck I love pop music and rap both of which are MTV's primary format... I just don't happen to like most of the pop or rap artists MTV plays. You know? I like, no LOVE, Kanye West (he's my fucking idol)... I dig Weezy. Shit there's a lot of shit I listen to that you would never guess I liked. It's just, that MTV shit isn't cutting it. Remember when MTV had Prodigy LIVE on the 10 Spot? Or when they premiered the "Lucky Man" video by the Verve? Or when you could catch Massive Attack and Manic Street Preachers back to back? No? I'm getting old then.

Anyway... Mr. West did knock it out of the park yesterday, however, when he performed "Love Lockdown" at the VMA's. When I saw that he played a new track last night I was more than interested... 'Ye seemed to be getting REALLY good at singing when we saw him in Chicago and this is a perfect example of his new skills... I mean the man really seems to have some pipes. Not "Spaceship" type singing, but rather if he had sung the chorus to "Good Life" by himself... so here's an MPFree copy of the stream, along with the stream itself...

Kanye West- "Love Lockdown"

Kanye West- "Love Lockdown"

This video isn't the actual performance... MTV are being bitches I guess about MTV being streamed from anywhere other than MTV...

If you wanna see the real vid go to MTV I guess. Sucks how that works but I guess they are the ones that brought it to us.
