Some Drake news to pass along today via RollingStone who is reporting confirmed collabs with Jay Z (this should be of no surprise who caught their much-talked about photo earlier this summer above), Lil Wayne (also no surprise there) and Hudson Mohawke. The latter has been buzzing with the big names lately, most notably with Kanye West on Yeezus.
Drake also reveals this tidbit about a song called "Highlight":
"[Highlight] hits you in the heart. It’s painful and beautiful at the same time.” - Drake
Nothing Was The Same is right around the corner on September 17th.
New G.O.O.D. Music signee, Scotland EDM producer/DJ Hudson Mohawke, took to a recent live performance to preview a couple new Kanye West tracks, presumably off his upcoming album. Above: Yeezy starts spittin' some nice raps around the 1 minute mark over a high-energy electronic beat. I like the sounds of this one especially so far. Below: right from the start, some more nice, decipherable Kanye bars. With fan footage comes the muffled audio, but you can still make out a lot of the lyrics and get a sense for the general sound. I stopped watching it though because I prefer my first experience of a new song I'm looking forward to to be of high and proper quality.
What do you guys think of an electronic sound for Kanye West?
