K. Dot and the Breakfast Club so you know what you’ll be in store for.
More specifically, Kendrick reveals how he got the 2Pac interview in “Mortal Man”, being a fan of Killer Mike, his relationship with fellow TDE members (with no features from them on TPAB, btw), and his actual relationship with a longtime girlfriend, and now, fiancé. Watch/run it in the bg below.

Also The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore and… from the looks of the pic… new BFF Martin Short!?! Hah! Love the randomness here. Watch a clip of that below the Breakfast Club interview where Sean talks all things album and personal life. Finally, stream the entire album on Spotify as Dark Sky Paradise is in stores today.
Kanye on The Breakfast Club… need I say more?
I mean, just tune in for the tension between Kanye and Charlamagne Tha God, right?! But it definitely was lighter right off the bat and a calmer Yeezy was jovial, and sometimes just straight up joking on a host of light-hearted topics (there’s a memorable couple quotes on Amber Rose and Tyga/Kylie for example.) ‘Ye of course talked about the art as well like new music, his new adidas fashion line, and Beck and the Grammys (he admits he was being hypocritical.)
And oh yeah, Kanye also confirms a black colorway of the Yeezy Boosts (while separately, adidas announces the Yeezy Boost will hit online tomorrow. UPDATE: The image below.)
Back to the interview, Kanye also hints on some new music: a track with Young Thug, how “Wolves” came about from a conversation of a collab album with Drake (what!), and that the album is 80% done. One innovate idea he mentioned in regards to the new releases — a video game 6 months in the making for “Only One”. Very interesting.
All this and more up above so press play, sit back and enjoy the most extensive new Kanye interview this year.
And while you’re at it, click to see a new, inspiring Twitter rant from ‘Ye (hope there’s more of these to come too.)

During an NYC promo trip this week, Big Sean chatted with The Breakfast Club on a variety of topics from his ex-girl to his new girl (Naya Rivera and Ariana Grande, you should know by now…) and he was first immediately asked about if “IDFWU” was about Naya Rivera.
Sean clarifies that he played Naya an early version of the record he calls an anthem that can be relatable to a lot of situations (true). He does also admit he “may have gone back and changed a few lines.” …Yeah, I can see that.
They also talk about the “IDFWU” video, and scarce details on an album coming soon. It’s darker and Kanye West will be featured on it. There’s the summary, but it’s still a fun watch up above this morning.
The latest from Tink and Timbaland is the new video for “Around The Clock”, which no doubt has an addicting beat from the latter. The sound matches the clock theme and Tink puts it down with some clever references throughout (that Dwight Howard one…) with Charlamagne Tha God contributing as well. Watch and see above as DGainz is behind the lens.
