Amid recent net-wide speculation, music fanatics everywhere are curious to know if a collaboration between genre-blurring phenom Flying Lotus and hip-hop super producer Kanye West could be in the pipeline. Although specific details about a project are scant, FlyLo suggested, with a comment posted live on Twitter, that something is indeed in the works.
On September 19 , Flying Lotus tweeted to West: “Yo, are you still rollin’ through today”? Yes folks, as in “rollin through” to the studio. Neither Flying Lotus or Kanye could be reached for comment.
Not too long ago twitterland went abuzz because Kanye and Bieber were creatively flirting with each other when Kanye invited him into a ménage à troi with Raekwon of Wu-Tang Clan. Today we see the fruits of their labor with this remix of “Runaway Love” by Justin Bieber, which is composed of Justin Bieber’s lyrics over Wu-Tang’s “Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nothing ta Fuck Wit”. Uh, I like love the Justin Bieber part, it’s so eerily reminiscent of Michael Jackson. Of course, once again as always, we for some reason need to get rap in there and I would have liked it had it been cohesive and collaborative as opposed to just trying to win a rhyming competition.

For all of you who don’t know whats going on with Mr.West check out these tweets. Kanye has decided every weekend until Xmas to drop a new song! Looks like Kanye is bringing back the slogan TGIF(Thank Goodness It’s Friday)!
Kanye West’s arrival to the Twitterverse–and his subsequent 50+ posts the first day–has spurred a slew of Yeezy-related Twitter pages. First, Aziz Ansari kicked off the #PredictingKanyeTweets hashtag, then @Budgetkanyewest appropriated ‘Ye’s style and adapted hit to their budget lifestyle. Now, someone has taken the rapper’s penchant for lines that straddle the border between clever and corny and turned it into @Fakekanyelines, a hysterical collection of lines we can actually see the self-proclaimed greatest artist of all time drop on his next album. To wit:
“I want my son born in the summer so I can practice heir conditioning.”
“After Taylor Swift, I lost a lot of comrades/had to head for the hills, but I ain’t Lauren Conrad”
“You got a problem? Well then say so!/Yeah that’s what I thought. LMAO”
For some reason, the concept of Philadelphia-rap music makes me feel cold all over(sans the jovially-neon Fresh Prince–though even he departed for sunny Bel-Air). Perhaps it’s the town’s deeply-rooted Protestant work ethic or maybe it’s a manifestation of populist pride against New York City’s glitz, but in a genre that revels in showcasing the ascension from poverty to posh, guys like Freeway, Beanie Sigel and Black Thought have always given off the impression that they’re proud to remain scrappy. Certainly no exception to said-zeitgeist is Reef the Lost Cauze whose latest offering, Fight Music, hears the Philly-MC clawing through producer, Guns-n-Butter’s murky beats with domineering confidence. However, as frosty as Reef’s lyrical right-hooks are, he warmly shines some light upon his hometown as well as things that make him laugh and …
