Kanye West: Heard ‘Em Say

It is quite astonishing how inspiring Kanye West is. He has dabbled in everything from fashion to film direction and you still marvel at what he will do next. Kanye has caused a lot of controversy throughout his career and even recently with his support of Donald Trump. All that aside, I have always been a fan of his and anxiously await whatever he does next.

“Heard Em Say” is one of my favorite tracks from Kanye’s phenomenal album Late Registration. Whenever that piano riff comes in I still get hyped by it. It reminds me of summertime in Chicago where I used to play basketball with my little brother and nonstop video game playing. Check out the track below.

Kanye West- Bound 2

You have to give it to Kanye. The man always knows how to entertain the masses. This new video of “Bound 2” from Yeezus, has Kanye on a motorcycle with Kim Kardashian in tow. The video is so completely over the top and hilarious but so epic in its absolute absurdity. The visuals are stunning and Kanye and Kim’s grinding on the motorcycle is a direct slap to their critics and haters. This video is Kanye’s blatant statement to everyone that he doesn’t give a damn about what you think of him or his fiancee and that he is still making high quality material.
