Kanye West Reveals The Meaning Of ‘I Hate Being Bi-Polar, It’s Awesome’

Jimmy Kimmel brings out Kanye West’s most viral moments. The two have gone from Twitter spats filled with Spongebob memes to friendly appearances on-air. Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (August 9), was no different. The late-night host briefly left the Chicago artist speechless after asking, “You so famously and so powerfully said George Bush doesn’t care about black people. It makes me wonder what makes you think that Donald Trump does, or any people at all?”

Surprisingly, the interview got more interesting when Kanye candidly described the meaning behind the phrase “I hate being bi-polar, it’s awesome,” which is written across the cover of his latest album, ye.

“It’s not an opposite. It’s not ‘I hate being bi-polar, it’s awesome,’ West explained. “It drives more of how you really feel. Doesn’t do a opposite thing. I think it’s important for us to have open conversations about mental health, especially with me being black, because we never had therapists in the black community. We never approach like taking medication or not. I think it’s good that when I had my first complete blackout at age five, my mom didn’t fully medicate me, because I might have never been Ye in this Times Square [building].”

Kanye also shared that his controversial statements on TMZ about 400 years of slavery seeming like “a choice,” was the result of being “ramped up” do to his bipolar disorder.

“At least, I’m happy that I know,” he continued. “Like even for this interview I knew I wanted to stay in a calm state, because by the time I got to TMZ I was ramped up. So what was awesome is that the world got to really experience someone in a ramped up state and that’s when you get these comments that just shoot out…They’re some cases of bi-polar where people go low. I’m one that goes high.”

Kanye also discussed producing five G.O.O.D. Music albums this summer and his favorite type of porn.

G-Eazy Reveals He Was Working On New Music With Halsey Days Before They Broke Up

The craziest kind of breakup tends to be the most unexpected. On Tuesday (July 3), Halsey shocked fans by announcing that she and G-Eazy were “taking time apart.” And while fans of the PDA-friendly couple are mourning the break-up, the blow is made even worse by G-Eazy’s new revelation that the pair may have been plotting new music together.

In an interview with Billboard conducted days before the couple broke up, G-Eazy revealed, “We were just in the studio the other night and we made a couple records. She’s one of the most talented people in music.”

The “Him & I” rapper also explained how special it is to make records with someone you love.

“When you get to collaborate with the person you’re in love with and share this experience of making a song and performing a song, and the person you’re sharing it with is that… that’s really dope,” he said.

Halsey’s short statement didn’t shed light on the reason for her and G-Eazy’s sudden split. The singer wished her ex “the best,” but later shared an Instagram post with a potentially shady Drake lyric as its caption. Some fans are even claiming that a recent Halsey tweet that says “pumpkin eater” could hint at why the couple broke up. It’s safe to say this isn’t the end of the conspiracy theories.

Chance The Rapper Reveals Kanye West Is Producing A 7-Song Album For Him

Remember when Kanye West once rapped, ”doing five beats a day for three summers” and it felt like hyperbole? Well, he’s produced 35 songs for himself, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Nas, and Teyana Taylor in the span of a month, and now Chance the Rapper has revealed that West might also be producing an entire album for him.

“I’m in dry erase board mode, so I’m organizing and kind of trying to structure. But what’s cool is Ye’s kind of got me in a mode of understanding just your ability to multi-task and work on different things. He’s always been on that,” Chance said on the season finale of Open Late with Peter Rosenberg. “Because of his ability to work on multiple projects, I’ve been actively working on the project with Childish [Gambino]. I’m going to do a 7-track [album] with Ye.”

The rumored Chance/Childish joint project has been discussed in some capacity for the past six years, and now the Chicago rapper has divulged just how close to completion it actually is.

“I’m 30 percent on everything that I’m working on, at least 30 percent,” he continued. “Supposed to be working on [the Kanye album] in July. So I don’t know. … We got six songs that are all fire, but I think the album’s going to be more than 14 songs. I think it’s going to be a full thing.”

If Chance can pull off both a Kanye-produced album and a collaborative project with Childish Gambino in 2018, he might deserve the MVP.

Don C Reveals New Colorway of His Jordan Legacy 312

Don C, after releasing three variations of the Air Jordan 2 and a striking contribution to Nike’s AF100 installment, has moved on to thoughtfully imagining hybrids. His upcoming Jordan Legacy 312 is somewhat of a masterful Frankenstein — a melding pot of classic sneakers that pull from the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 3, and the nostalgic Alpha Force, respectively.

Don revealed a final sample of the shoe today on Instagram and immediately the most noteworthy feature is the absence of Nike Air at the tongue. Fittingly, Just Don branding emboldens the Air Jordan 1 inspired tongue construction while a Nike scripted forefoot strap odes to the aforementioned Alpha Force (worn on court briefly by Mike). The shoe’s midsole is clearly tooled to represent the Air Jordan 3, as elephant print covers the mudguard and rear Visible Air also represents the coveted 88 classic.

Don would only allude to his excitement surrounding the shoe’s summer release. A more specific timeframe has not been revealed. Stay tuned.

Update 6/7: Don C has revealed a new colorway of his upcoming Jordan Legacy 312. The Black/Royal colorway is of the fragment variety. In true Don fashion, the Chicago son laced them up with Gucci trousers and the White/Red-Black colorway.

So hyped to have a final sample!… Legacy (312) coming this summer ?????

A$AP Rocky Reveals Entire Testing Tracklist With Frank Ocean, Kid Cudi, And More

It’s an exciting time for hip-hop heads. Not only is Pusha T releasing his Kanye West-produced Daytona on Friday (May 25), but A$ AP Rocky’s Testing album will arrive as well.

With just a few hours to wait until fans can listen in full, Rocky has revealed the album’s tracklist and production credits — and to say it’s stacked would be an understatement. Skepta and Boi-1da are among the producers involved, while the roster of featured artists includes FKA Twigs, Dev Hynes, Playboi Carti, and Kodak Black. Two of the most intriguing posse cuts are “Brotha Man” with Frank Ocean and French Montana, and “Purity” with Ocean and the legendary Ms. Lauryn Hill. The tracklist also teases the previously released single “A$ AP Forever” featuring Moby and a newly credited appearance from Kid Cudi.

Check out all the newly teased tracks in the Star Wars-style video below.

To hype up Testing even more, Rocky linked up with Beats 1′s Zane Lowe to break down the features on his third studio album.

“I mean, sparring with Frank is the best training you can get,” Rocky said about Ocean. “I love it because it’s art at its purest form and when we are in the studio, aware of the environment, there’s no egos, man. It’s really like just friends, just honestly sparring and trying to make the best of the best, and get the best out of each other.”

He continued, “We’ve got a Kid Cudi feature on there. I was just fucking stoked about that. … Now, finally, within my career, I could just showcase that, and show people, like, yo, these are the people I grew up with, these are the people I admire.”

The feature-heavy Testing arrives on Friday (May 25). The wait is almost over!

Pusha T Reveals Why Kanye West Calls Him In The Middle Of The Night

Kanye West’s brand of leadership is very Michael Scott-esque. Yeezy seems like a kindhearted and familial boss who means well, but ultimately revels in the unbridled chaos of it all. In an interview with Power 105.1′s Angie Martinez, Pusha T opened up about his new album, DAYTONA, a potential tour with Nas, and updates on the rest of the G.O.O.D. Music roster. However, the most fascinating portion of the conversation arrived when Pusha described the challenges of working with West during the album making process.

“He [Kanye] changed my artwork last night at 1 a.m.,” Push said. “He changed my artwork at 1 a.m. ’cause he wasn’t feeling it.”

According to the G.O.O.D. Music president, the artwork for his album was completed and agreed upon by all parties. However, at the last minute Kanye decided the photos weren’t exactly what the world needed to see.

“[At] 1 a.m. my phone rings, no caller ID,” he continued. “‘Hey, yeah, I think we should change the artwork. I like this other artwork.’ Now this other artwork is 85 grand, right. I said, hey, I don’t want to pay for that and I wasn’t even going to ask you to pay for that. We picked what we picked. It’s here. It’s ready. [He said,] ‘No this is what people need to see to go along with this music. I’mma pay for that.’”

Kanye is reportedly producing four more albums in the coming weeks. Guess Kid Cudi, Teyana Taylor, and Nas are going to be getting a lot of early morning phone calls.

Cardi B Reveals The Sex Of Her Baby And 4 More Juicy Revelations From New Interview

Cardi B has always been candid about the pressures of fame, and now the “Be Careful” singer is opening up about potentially going to therapy.

“People used to be like, ‘maybe you should do therapy,’” Cardi stated. “And I used to be like, uh-uh, colored folks, we don’t need none of that. We just go to church, and we pray about it. And then it’s just like… I think it’s a little bit more than that. I don’t want people to think I’m not enjoying this moment, [but] it’s just a lot to handle.”

Kanye West Reveals New adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 for Fall/Winter

The adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 is apparently the next big push from Kanye West and his growing YEEZY company. To no surprise, the man behind his nicknamesake brand already has a pair in a colorway we’ve never seen.

Approved for Q4 — Holiday Season or Fall/Winter depending on the drop date — as said by West, this grey and gum makeup sees the updated chunky runner remaining muted and tonal. This is in line with other 700 V2s we’ve seen on or from Kanye, appearing in White/Grey and Black/Grey thus far.

Sporting the same sole tooling as its predecessor with a slightly less aggressive upper, preview the self explantatory style below and expect these to hit shelves near the end of the year.

Kanye West Reveals Original adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Sample

Recent as they may be, 2015’s adidas Yeezy Boost 350 “Turtle Dove” serves as a classic to some. An event by most measures, the quite and comfy kicks caused quite a stir with many mimics to come.

Not a mimic but rather the origin, Kanye West took to Twitter to reveal an original sample of said shoe in on-foot fashion.

To even the obsessed eye, differences are slim. The shaping on the sample proves slightly higher yet chunkier, while black collar trim and a more pronounced print/lighter base tone are apparent. In addition, the laces also sport reverse contrast with black playing the base and grey serving as the subtle contrast.

Cardi B Proudly Reveals Her Album Is Dropping Very Soon

Last night (March 11), Cardi B proved once again that her charisma could take over any award show she goes too. Cardi started the iHeartRadio Music Awards off with a performance of “Bodak Yellow” and “Bartier Cardi” before walking away with the Best New Artist award. During her speech, she gave fans an update on when they can expect her long-awaited debut.

“My album will be coming in April,” said Cardi. “Yes, sir, April. Stay tuned, motherfuckers.”

The “Motorsport” star also took time out of her acceptance speech to thank her publicist, label, and fiancé Offset. However, it wouldn’t be a Cardi speech without a little bit of bite for her detractors.

“I want to thank my fans, Bardi Gang, because even when I’m wrong, they be like, ‘She’s still right,’” said Cardi. “I want to thank my haters too, because they be downloading my stuff so they can hear it and talk crap about it, but it benefits me.”

In a Beats 1 Radio interview with Julie Adenuga, the “Finesse” rapper described why she will always rap about her haters.

“I’m always gonna talk about them because I hate them,” said Cardi. “I hate y’all. I wish y’all catch something. … I’m not too cool to tell your fucking ass something. Like, how your fucking square ass is gonna talk about me?”

Guess we’ll have to wait until April to see what the anti-Cardi brigade has to say about an entire album of slander.
