Kanye West has taken time out of his busy Kimye schedule to remix Rihanna's 'Diamonds'. it sounds exactly like you'd think it would, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
for Zola Jesus' own remix of 'Diamonds' which doesn't feature a reference to 'Chocolate Rain'.

Azealia Banks is all about our favourite fictional movement seapunk
these days (or just has a yen for Clipart heavy Powerpoint presentations). Her new video for 'Atlantis' off her recent mixtape Fantasea
kind of looks like a motion picture representation of her blog
– but is she taking the piss out of the whole Tumblr girl thing? Or does she legitimately like shark imagery and bindis?
What do you reckon Loungers?
This is the cutest thing in hip hop since Drake had a re-Bar Mitzvah.
Nas and his father jazz musician Olu Dara, have appeared in Gap's Holiday 2012 campaign entitled 'Love Comes in Every Shade'.
Hold onto your ovaries ladies!
Is it just us, or has Nas seemed super emotional this year? First with Kelis' wedding dress on the cover of Life is Good
, then the depressing video of 'Bye Baby' where he's hanging out in an empty house that stinks of divorce, and now this?
Cheer up Charlie/Nas!
CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!
Will Smith a.k.a The Fresh Prince a.k.a Tom Cruise's BFFL a.k.a Hitch a.k.a The Cleanest Rapper Alive, recently did some freestyling with Doug E. Fresh at Gabrielle Union's 40th birthday party. Maybe it was the fact that Jazzy Jeff wasn't there to pull in the reigns, or maybe he was just caught up in the naughtiness of the hip hop, but Will Smith said some swear words. TWICE.
(To be precise, look at out for the 'n-word' and bitch. We listen to so much cussing that it's hard to distinguish it from regular words anymore).
Apart from being super adorable/badass, Will is pretty entertaining when he starts doing 'Summertime'. Perhaps a new, edgier album is on the horizon? About the seedier side of being West Philadelphia, born and raised?
