Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Flockaveli To Clinic

Kanye Kills It On “Saturday Night Live”


Kanye West may be an ego-maniacal douchebag, but boy, did he redeem himself musically on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. Performing “Power” (above) and “Runaway” (after the jump) on a glowing white stage, backed by over a dozen ballet dancers, Kanye killed it. Seriously, Mr. West, STFU and stick to what you’re good at — because when you do, you blow people away. See his other performance, after the jump… Keep reading »

Especially the part when he’s gently cupping her breasts. Argh! Gross! It’s like watching your parents make out or something. Too bad this perfectly good song is ruined by their saccharine display of man-and-wife-in-love explosion. I’ve got a secret for them: this video makes me want to take a shower.

Meet Denny Blaze, The Whitest White Boy Rapper Ever

All Denny “Blazin’ Hazen” Blaze wanted to be was a successful rapper — and he made this stellar video, featuring his atonal voice, off-beat rapping, killer mullet and love of neon tracksuits — in order to try and get a record deal. Stick around for the post-video pitch to MTV, where he explains with a slight sociopathic glint, “I’m just a middle class guy who’s trying to express myself through my rap music.” [YouTube] Keep reading »
