Kanye West Performs on ‘SNL,’ Battles Kyle Mooney, Releases New Album

Posted by | News | No Comments

Kanye West Performs on

Although Melissa McCarthy was technically billed as the host of Saturday Night Live, the evening was overshadowed by the larger-than-life hip-hop legend Kanye West, there to promote his misogynist gospel album The Life of Pablo. The rapper performed two tracks from the LP, appeared in a sketch and announce that it’s now streaming at Tidal and available to purchase at his official website.

Joined by a wide cast of people that included The-Dream, Young Thug, Kirk Franklin, El DeBarge, Chance the Rapper and many others, Kanye powered through album tracks “High Lights” and “Ultra Light Beam.”

He also appeared in a hilarious sketch from SNL MVP Kyle Mooney, who offered a cinema verite mockumentary about his dream to battle Kanye West and make it as a rapper.

Watch highlights from Kanye West’s SNL appearance below, and check out The Life of Pablo as of right now soon?

UPDATE: As of press time, neither the Tidal stream nor the online shop for Kanye’s album have gone live. Kanye please, let this godawful album roll-out end.

UPDATE 2: The album’s here!

Tidal Officially Releases Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’ After Accidental Leak

Posted by | News | No Comments

Tidal Officially Releases Rihanna

Earlier today (January 27), Rihanna teased fans with the arrival of her long-awaited ANTI album. Sharing the Drake-assisted “Work” single, she suggested the full-length would arrive this week. Now, the whole thing is here.

The rollout was hardly a controlled release, however. Over at Tidal, someone accidentally made the album available early before taking it down. That was quick enough for the whole record to leak online, however, so they’ve opted to put it up again.

The 13-song release includes previously heard songs like “James Joint,” though it strangely doesn’t include the hits “FourFiveSeconds” or “BBHMM.”

If you’ve got a Tidal account, you can listen to the album here. Otherwise, ANTI is expected to arrive on other platforms soon.

Rihanna will also launch a world tour on February 26. 

1. Consideration (ft. SZA)
2. James Joint
3. Kiss It Better
4. Work (ft. Drake)
5. Desperado
6. Woo
7. Needed Me
8. Yeah, I Said It
9. Same Ol’ Mistakes
10. Never Ending
11. Love on the Brain
12. Higher
13. Close to You

Fetty Wap Releases His Own Line of Emojis

Fetty Wap Releases His Own Line of Emojis

Just in case those winky emojis weren’t already doing the trick, rap sensation Fetty Wap has capped off his wildly successful 2015 by releasing a pack of customized emojis.

It has been released exclusively for the Moji Keyboard app for iOS, meaning that this will be compatible with your (ahem) eye-phone. Many of the emojis consist of caricatures of the rapper’s face, and there are a few yellow smileys with just one eye (since Wap famously lost an eye to glaucoma as a child).

There are also graphics that highlight some of the musician’s favourite numbers 1738 and 300, plus ones for his songs “Trap Queen” and “My Way.” See the full array below, and go to to download the pack.

Sadly, none of the emojis show the rapper with a leg cast while seated on a golden throne.


Just in time for the holidays. Get my official emoji pack exclusively on Moji Keyboard on iOS. Go to to download

If you aren’t a member, you can sample 30-second clips from the 12-song second set, which comes packaged with the preceding instalment, over here. That said, some songs should be familiar to fans.

Miley Cyrus Releases Surprise Free Album with the Flaming Lips

The MTV VMAs are a central part of the pop cultural zeitgeist, as is the surprise free album drop. As such, it was fair to assume that someone would deliver a top secret project to the masses. But it wasn’t Kanye West, Justin Bieber or Nicki Minaj treating their fans to a surprise on Sunday night. Instead, it was host Miley Cyrus. The long-expected release is called Miley & Her Dead Petz, and sees the performer working alongside the Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne, hip-hop producer/frequent collaborator Mike Will Made It, Big Sean, Phantogram’s Sarah Barthel and, perhaps most surprisingly,…
