It’s dope….10 bucks. I teamed up with co-author J. Sakiya Sandifer to make my literary debut with Thank You And You’re Welcome!, an entertaining volume of “Kanye-isms “– the creative, humorous and insightful philosophies and anecdotes used in creating my path to success. It captures the same wit, playful irony, and piercing insight found abundant in my lyrics. In Thank You And You’re Welcome! I deliver my personal message uncensored, without any five-second delay or media distortion.
The Carter III isn’t coming on the 18th December, but The Carter III: Leak is. And you have to admit, the amount that is appearing on the internet from him these days is astounding. . But yeah, MTV has more, and look out for the video for ‘gossip’ appearing in the next few weeks.
Didnt really feel the first hour as much this week.. despite Quantic and the Latin inputs, the quantic album being one at the top of my current wishlist. Second hour makes up for it, some brilliant new tunes there, particularly liking the Guynamite track out on Mukatsuku (Vinyl Only, Damn).. but definitely a label worth checking.

A mini war has also broken out between some guy called Ransom and Joe Budden.. It’s easy to see who is winning, but whats incredible is the turnover of these guys tracks.. We’re on one a day at the moment. Follow it @ Nahright.
I’m in a rush so can’t give you the exact link.. but xxlmag have the second part of their Jay interview up.. XXL.
Seen on XXLmag.com . . 30 Second clips of all the tracks due on American Gangster. Ignorant Shit sounds even better than it did when I first heard it. . And thats an improvement on one of my favourite Jay-z tracks of all time. Party Life stands out, as does the one every ones talking about: No Hook. I also hear some Wayne in there.. Too easy to judge an album on snippets these days, and I hate doing it, but from what i can hear its going to be a huge improvement on Kc, at the very least.
Its all here.
What do you think?
All starts tomorow. . The bbc will have coverage of it all, make sure you don’t miss out.. Mark Ronson, the Soil & Pimp/Jamie Cullum collaboration, Ben Westbeech/Estelle/Durrty Goodz at the Jazz Cafe for me. As well as Kano of course. ELECTRIC PROMS.
Last year was good, this years set to be way betttter. I’l do my best to bring the best of it here.
