First Look: Martin Scorsese Brilliantly Uses Kanye West’s ‘Black Skinhead’ In ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ Trailer

This Movie Looks So Effing Good... I CAN'T!
'Was All This Legal? Absolutely Not'

Martin Scorsese‘s films are known for having some of the most amazing scores ever, and it looks like his new movie The Wolf Of Wall Street will fall right in line. We haven’t heard much about the gilm (although we did see Leonardo DiCaprio on set a while back), but today we have our first look at the trailer and it is so effing exciting! First of all, Kanye West‘s new single Black Skinhead is pulsing through the whole thing and it is the perfect backdrop for this wild story about New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort, author of the best-selling memoir The Wolf of Wall Street. This guy made $49 million in 1996 alone and, apparently, knew how to party. One can’t help but think of Leo‘s most recent film The Great Gatsby with all the lavishness in this trailer, but methinks The Wolf Of Wall Street (which also stars Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill) will be a completely different experience. Peep the trailer for more!

The Wolf Of Wall Street hits theatres November 15.

Watch: Jay-Z Announces Forthcoming New Album ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’!

With Timbaland, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz & Rick Rubin! OMG!
'We Need To Write The New Rules'

Last night if you were watching Game 5 of the NBA Finals you were in for a real treat. Don’t ask me who won, ask me how much I lost my mind when Jay-Z popped up in this Samsung commercial thing with friggen Timbaland, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz and Rick Rubin to announce his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail. Answer: a lot. I lost my mind a lot.The album is coming out July 4, and it will be offered for free to the first million people who download the Magna Carta app, which will be available on the Samsung Galaxy S III, S4 and Galaxy Note phones on June 24. Because if you want Jigga‘s new album, there’s an app for that. I’m so excited that he’s doing this, and it’s also very interesting to watch having just experienced Yeezy season and Kanye West‘s completely different approach to marketing his music. These guys are insane! And with all those geniuses in the studio with Jay I’m expecting great things from the new Magna Carta. Peep the video for more! And go HERE for more info about the album and Samsung partnership.

Everyone's Loving 'Yeezus'

Kanye West may not have been able to attend is own listening party in LA (because he was busy becoming a DADDY!!!) but the show still went on and lots of celebrities showed up to support Yeezus.

Not only has Yeezus been getting rave reviews from many of us, but apparently folks at the listening party were loving it as well. Justin Bieber and Tyler The Creator were both in attendance– click inside to see what they had to say about the coming of Yeezus.

Watch: Kanye West Promotes ‘Yeezus’ With An ‘American Psycho’ Promo Video

Kanye Promotes his Other Baby
Psycho Americans

Earlier today we learned that Kanye West‘s baby was born into the world in the wee hours this morning but we cannot forget that Kanye has been hard at work promoting the release of his other baby … his new album Yeezus. Altho Yeezus leaked to the Internets 5 days early, that doesn’t mean that the promo push for the album is ending early. Last night, Kanye debuted a new projected video that features Scott Disick and Joanthan Cheban starring in a parody version of the film American Psycho. You can’t really hear the dialog in the video embedded above but it looks like a pretty faithful recreation of the film. Yeezus promo is still in FULL EFFECT … chances are, we may get to see other neat promo stuff in the next few days.

Kanye West Announces More ‘Yeezus’ Video Projections For The Weekend

Manhattan, DETROIT, And More Get The 'Yeezus' Treatment!

Yes, I’m still listening to Yeezus, which leaked yesterday to the delight of the entire universe. No, I don’t have any plans on listening to anything else (not even Kanye‘s amazing Throwbacks!) for the next 3-7 days. I knew Yeezy Season was in full effect, but I don’t think I was prepared for this album to seriously take over my whole life and, like, emotional state. LMAOooo. Plus, y’all PITNBrs keep posting these awesome mini-reviews of the album everywhere, and I can’t stop thinking about these songs! Anywho, Kanye West is continuing with his takeover and will be projecting more of those awesome videos all over the world. And yes, PITNBr nicole. It looks like they’ll be back in Toronto!

Watch: Sebastien De La Cruz Performs The National Anthem, Does America Proud

American Proud

Earlier this week, a young San Antonio, TX native named Sebastien De La Cruz performed The Star Spangled Banner, our national anthem, ahead of a NBA Finals basketball game. After De La Cruz‘s performance aired live on TV, a flood of horribly racist and ignorant comments started making the rounds online due to his Mexican-American heritage. In light of the disgusting backlash voiced by some of the more ignorant people in this country, the decision was made to let Sebastien perform the national anthem AGAIN in front of another NBA Finals basketball game last night. President Obama even tweeted his support for the little dude’s performance. In case you missed it last night or just want to watch Sebastian De La Cruz perform The Star Spangled Banner again, you can check out the video embed below. More »

His Own Direction
Harry Goes Solo

Harry Styles, 1/5th of the wildly popular pop group One Direction, has teamed up with fellow British singer Sam McCarthy on a new song that is being touted as Harry‘s solo debut. The song, Don’t Let Me Go, made its way to the Internets yesterday and appears to be doing well with fans of 1D and Styles specifically. Harry has yet to comment publicly on the track but his collaborator Sam McCarthy took to Twitter to thank folks for the positive response:

Click the embed above to hear Harry‘s solo debut and see what you think. Are you impressed? Do you think this means that Harry is ready to leave the One Direction down one member so he can go his own way?

Watch: Kanye West Delivers An Emotional Performance Of ‘New Slaves’ At Design Miami/Basel

Acapella
Feeling All the Feels

Kanye West made an appearance at Design Miami/Basel last night to talk about his upcoming new album Yeezus and to deliver an exceptionally emotional acapella performance of his song New Slaves. Click the embed above to watch Kanye perform the song without music and with only his emotions to guide him. It’s pretty powerful to watch, I must say. As usual, Kanye West used his appearance last night to say some interesting things about various topics but I don’t think anything he has to say about anything is as interesting as the performance he gave last night.

‘All Falls Down’ And 24 Other Reasons Why Kanye West IS A [Musical] God

Throwback Thursday Celebrates The Coming Of 'Yeezus'

Let me just preface this by saying Kanye West is absolutely one of my favorite rappers/musicians/artists/celebrities of all time. I have always been a fan, and never been a hater; I’ve always found his arrogance to be absolutely hilarious (and in some cases, warranted), mainly because I actually listen to his music and I get that he’s got a real sense of humor that everybody does not pick up on. I friggen love Kanye. I love him! I say all of that to say, just for this one post, Yeezy haters– begone! With his new album just days away we are celebrating the amazingness that is Throwback Kanye and if you don’t believe that Can’t Tell Me Nothing is one of the greatest hip-hop songs/any-genre songs of all time, then this post may not be for you. People may hate to hear him say it, but Kanye IS, IMO, a [musical] god and he can do whatever he wants! Click inside for 25 reasons why!!!
