Jay-z feat. Rihanna & Kanye West – Run This Town
Jay-z Run This Town

It’s been a while since I posted something since I’ve been busy with work, school, and side hustles. But now I’m back on my grind and what a better way to get back into the swing of things with a new Jay single?

Jay drops his mainstream single “Run This Town” with Mr. West and Rihanna. Originally Drake was supposed to be featured on Hov’s lead single, but unexpectedly Jay announced that the first single will feature Rhi and Kanye. Kanye drops a verse and handles production on the track, while Rihanna blesses the hook. Blueprint III in stores September 11th, eight years after the original Blueprint.

Seeing is Believing 6/2 – Spaceship

2 06 2009

Kanye West feat. Consequence & GLC – Spaceship
Vodpod videos no longer available.

I already know what you’re thinkin’, wasn’t this on Ye’s first album? Indeed it was and the video has a very late release yet it’s still much appreciated. Spaceship stands the test of time being today’s new video though the song is over five years old.
GLC, who does the songs second verse, made a good point that the song may be more relevant today with our current economical state. Whatever job you’ve worked at in the past you will definitely relate to this joint which is why this is one of my favorite Kanye tracks ever. This video is dope!
