Kanye West has been all over the airwaves lately. With each stop on hisYeezus Tour, West has stopped by local radio giving in-depth and passionate interviews about his music and hunger to do more in the fashion world. He touched on all of those things — and more — during his interview with MTV News’ Sway Calloway on Tuesday (November 26). But things got a lot more heated.
The “Sway in the Morning” interview, broadcast live on SiriusXM’s Shade 45, started off with ‘Ye talking about his creative aspirations in both music and fashion. But after Sway asked about Yeezy’s need for corporate support, things took a sudden turn.
“Why don’t you empower yourself and don’t need them and do it yourself?” Sway asked.
“How Sway?” Kanye barked. “You ain’t got the answers, man; you ain’t got the answers. I’ve been doing this more than you; you ain’t got the answers.”
Tell us how you really feel Kanye! Before you go back to the “N*ggas in Paris” work on your freestyle skills. We are sure Pusha T would lend you a helping hand.
Andre 3000 and Big Boi put Outkast on the back burner in 2007, but the two may be headed for a reunion at next year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Billboard reports multiple sources have confirmed talks to appear at the Indio, Calif., festival, which begins April 11, 2014. Though no Outkast reps have officially confirmed the rap duo’s reunion, one source told Billboard it’s “all systems go.” Plus, Outkast collaborator Sleepy Brown recently posted an Instagram photo with the text “Outkast headlining Coachella 2014″ superimposed over the shot.
The Coachella appearance likely would be the first of several Outkast shows, including additional festival dates.
Since releasing Idlewild in 2006, Big Boi and Andre 3000 have kept busy collaborating with other acts and releasing solo material. Both appeared on a remix of Frank Ocean’s Pink Matter, though they were quick to say that collaboration didn’t constitute an Outkast reunion.
Since Coachella started in 1999, reunions have been one of the festival’s distinguishing features with acts like Big Audio Dynamite, Faith No More, Iggy and the Stooges, the Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, Pavement, The Pixies, Rage Against the Machine and Siouxsie & the Banshees getting back together on its stages.
We’re SO there! #COACHELLA

Everyone loves the ’90s. Which is exactly why R&B foursome the Jazmin Sisters (real blood sisters) —Nadia, Felicia, Celia and Daria—based their new EP, ’90s Baby, on the decade that housed both *NSYNC and Naughty By Nature. The L.A.-based group, which appeared on MTV’s Top Pop Group in 2008, sought inspiration for the six-track project from classics like Soul For Real’s “Candy Rain,” SWV’s “Weak” and even Snoop Dogg’s “Gin & Juice.”
Peep the video for their single “You” and cop their mixtape here:

Nipsey Hussle wanted to make a point by pressing only 1,000 hard copies of his new album, “Crenshaw,” selling those for $100 and giving the digital version away for free. He said he wanted to stick it to music labels for turning artists into conformists — and apparently, Jay-Z agrees with his message. Jay dropped $10,000 to pick up 100 copies of Nipsey’s album,posting a photo on his site of the impressive stack of CDs and blessing it with the “#Newrules” hashtag.
Smart Nipsey. Very smart.
And now, the momment we’ve all been waiting for….or maybe not. Rihanna finally releases the long-awaited video for the Strip Club Anthem, “Pour It Up” after a few days of teasers, behind the scenes and audition videos for the shoot.
I think we all knew what to expect from this video, but it just seems like Rihanna took a page from the Miley Cyrus Book Of Twerkology on this one. If this trend keeps up, we won’t be able to distinguish the Pop Stars from the Professional P Poppers.
So check out this montage of Pole Acrobatics & some serious Aqua-Twerking (if you hear anyone else use this term, tell them to break bread with the AM Caffeine Crew). And is it just us…or does Rihanna favor Joseline Hernandez from Love & Hip Hop ATL in some of the shots (Where’s Steebie J???)
