VIDEO: Nas “Nasty” + Common “Ghetto Dreams” f/ Nas

Nas is still nice. Common is still nice. That said, the plan is for these two MCs to drop a collaborative album called Nas.Com (or Nas (Dot) Com?).

Above, Nas’ video for the Salaam Remi produced “Nasty” from his forthcoming album titled Life Is Good. Below, Common’s video for the No I.D. produced “Ghetto Dreams” from his forthcoming album The Dreamer, The Believer, due out November 22.

Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Fridays Artwork

UPDATE, YET AGAIN: Added “Take One For The Team” and “Don’t Look Down” artwork.

UPDATE, AGAIN: Added Child Rebel Soldier “Don’t Stop” [via LupEND].

UPDATE: Added the latest G.O.O.D. Fridays delivery, “So Apalled” & “Christian Dior Denim Flow” below.

After his Taylor Swift and Hennessey inspired hiatus, Kanye West has returned with a vengeance. XXL Mag cover, outlandish Horus chain, buzzworthy VMA performances and of course, getting quizzical shots fired at him by Dipset.  While the hoopla continues to swirl about Mr. West, I’ve come to appreciate the graphic design of the artwork for his singles (black background with the occasional watermark and bold red lettering). Check your Twitter feed and you’ll see many avatars either swiping them or using them as inspiration. And of course, would be MCs are jacking them wholesale for their own work.

Here is all of Kanye’s artwork for his G.O.O.D. Fridays leaks with download links for each song. Said links probably won’t last very long. So get them while the getting is G.O.O.D. Except for that ish with Beiber—I wouldn’t share that with my worst enemy. Kanye’s fifth album Good Ass Job Dark Twisted Fantasy My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is now due November 16, for now.

Charles Hamilton X Rap Radar (Video)

Any rapper that said anything derogatory about me or my “movement” or whatever I do; any journalist, any website, anyone is a small irrelevant piece of litter on this huge ass microcosm that I like to call my reality. And my reality tells me that my reality isn’t wrong.”—Charles Hamilton

Oh, it gets better. The hyperbole Mr. Hamilton drops in this vid courtesy of YN is on atomic levels. Kiss my natural pink ass? Really? He has the people on his side. Show me love, I show you love back. Yadda yadda yadda.

I got no qualms about saying I’m not convinced about this cat. The whole pink and Sonic thing reeks of gimmickry and the music hasn’t made me take notice beyond any of the marketing. And never mind the use of the term “huge ass microcosm.” Hey, “If I don’t like it I don’t like it, that don’t mean that I’m hatin’,” to quote Lonnie Rashid Lynn. [via Rap Radar]
