It’s fast turning into G.O.O.D. Music day here at SME with the number of related posts. For once, however, it isn’t all about Kanye.

Having received the honour of being selected as a member of the XXL 2011 Freshmen Class, Cyhi The Prynce’s celebrates by releasing the customary freestyle. Watch the video and see what he had to say on being selected below.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

“It means a lot to me to just be known as one of the up-and-coming artists. I always like to say I got kept back twice from the Freshmen cover, but it’s a privilege just being amongst some of the best up-and-coming artists out right now and being publicized by the biggest hip-hop magazine. It’s a dream come true. It’s what every artist wanted to be. You know they want to see themselves on the cover of a magazine, or heavily publicized, so it’s an honor to me. It’s a blessing and a half. Right before I linked with Kanye, my car got repossessed. Everything wasn’t all peachy, peachy for me. I have a lot of plays this year due to me and this Kanye situation.

Freshman is like a stepping-stone. Most artists think this is the biggest point of their career. This is a stepping-stone to bigger and better things, especially with XXL. I want to have one with just my face on it, that’s the cool thing. I just need to stay working and capitalize off of every opportunity I get.”

[FRESH VIDEO] Cee-Lo Green feat. Wiz Khalifa – Bright Lights, Bigger City by wearesme

Wiz Khalifa has been added to the original version of Cee-Lo Green’s Bright Lights, Bigger City and with it comes a brand new video that would appear to have been inspired by Kanye West’s All Of The Lights, although sadly with considerably less Rihanna flesh.

Neither Cee-Lo or Wiz feature in the visuals, which are made up of footage from city nightlife, street lights and signs.

[NEW MUSIC] Kanye West – Not Enough Time (Summer of Dreams) (Unfinished) by wearesme

We heard the extremely short snippet yesterday and today a full length version has since leaked.

The song definitely remains unfinished and has a slightly different title to the one released yesterday, but it is still unclear as to what project it comes from. Have a listen below.

We never normally post ‘snippets’ but in Kanye’s case we always make exceptions. And if this were an aircraft, it would be described as a UFO. But it’s not, so we’ll move on from that thought.

SME have no idea whether this is old material or new; it could be a track that didn’t make the cut for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy or a song set to feature on Kanye’s upcoming summer album. As soon as we find out more, we’ll be sure to inform you. Until then, enjoy the snippet of Kanye pouring his broken heart out.

G.O.O.D Music member Pusha T jumps on his mentors beautiful track ‘Lost In The World’; taken from Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album.

Although only dropping one verse; such is the genius lyrical content that it is more than sufficient. SME can’t wait for Pusha’s Fear Of God mixtape to drop soon.

[LISTEN] Kanye West Cypher with Lupe Fiasco, Mos Def and Robert Glasper @ Blue Note, NYC by wearesme


“And all this illuminati talk / Like my first hit single wasn’t Jesus walks”

Last night, Jazz pianist Robert Glasper and his band The Robert Glasper Experiment performed with Lupe Fiasco at the Blue Note Jazz Cafe in New York. As it was the last of 4 shows, Lupe brought with him a few friends in the form of Kanye West and Mos Def.

All this talent under one room prompted a 30 minute Cypher, in which 3 of Hip-Hop’s finest lyricists took to the mic spitting bars both old and new. Kanye, as ever, was the talking point; addressing some of the controversy that has plagued his career of late.

You can listen to his Cypher below and download the full 30 minute session, should that not leave you satisfied.
