Very Fitting

Kanye's backkkkk...

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy debuted at midnight and after a first listen, it's safe to say Kanye West is back to full strength. 808's and Heartbreaks perplexed audiences and I thought he was gone forever, but this album reminded us why we like Kanye. It was a bit more artsy than his other albums, but the production was nice and it's showing him growing more as an artist. There are no street anthems, but it's still a quality album.

Enigmatic

So, Jay-Z recently unveiled his autobiography...sort of:

His novel, Decoded, is Jay-Z explaining the meaning behind his song lyrics. It allows the reader to learn more about Jay-Z, but he still keeps the readers at a distance and allows his enigmatic side to still be the most prevalent part of his persona. I need to get this book. Fun fact: The cover is an original Rorschach painting by Andy Warhol. Ballin

Nay Bay Bay

I have a question. Why do people think late nights are going to change anything? I'm writing this blog late at night thinking that it's going to sound cooler just because I wrote it late at night. The honest truth, though, is that nothing sounds better late at night. We hope and pray that it does, but it never happens. People try to spark up long term romances late at night with people they barely know, but that never works like that. I don't know why we do that. That's just a random thought.

Feds Takin' Pictures

I need to step my picture game up:

I like this Nikon D90 because it has the quality of a professional camera, but the price of a common man's camera. I also like that it takes really good action shots. Sigh...one day....

Look At You. Look At Me.

This almost slipped under the radar:

Yes, Pharrell and company are back with N.E.R.D.'s "Nothing". I honestly thought this was going to be a halfhearted effort from Pharrell seeing as his single "Hot 'N Fun" didn't really pique my interests. However, this is the best production for a N.E.R.D. album since "The Neptunes Present: Clones". Yes, that's the album that gave the iconic song "Frontin'". Anyways, every song is good listening. It's not a dance album. It is great for a kick back, however.
