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.
Kanye West “Don’t Look Down” f/ Mos Def, Big Sean & Lupe Fiasco
Kanye West “Take One For The Team” f/ Kanye West, Pusha T, & Cyhi Da Prince & Keri Hilson
Child Rebel Soldier “Don’t Stop!“
Kanye West “Dior Denim Flow” f/ Kid Cudi, Pusha T, John Legend, Lloyd Banks & Ryan Leslie
The Mighty Mos Def is probably getting a nice check from this one. “Quiet Dog Bite Hard” from The Ecstatic (you can see the album cover at the :06 mark) plays in the background during the above Palm ad.
Sticking with my iPhone, though.
Also worth noting, the Steve Aoki mix of Kid Cudi’s “Pursuit of Happiness” can be heard in the Vitamin Water ad below.
I’ve been over my qualms with Kanye West and his malarkey for a long while now. For one, there really is no point in stressing another grown mans’n’ems antics. And for deuce, all I really care for when it pertains to the dude is his beats (they pretty much always bang) and bars (peep his verse on Cudi’s “Make Her Say” (below) or the two (maybe three) on “Gone” (shout to BK Cyph who I discussed that with) from Late Registration).
In fact, Martin Louis the King Jr. [ugh] is one of the few mainstream artists that obviously takes the time to think about what he’s saying in his verses before he throws them out there. But, the point of this post is that the heads at Freshjive are about to win with their Kanye is a Whiny Bitch tee. With all the folks dedicated to disliking Yeezy, it’s a can’t lose design.
