Kanye West continued the along the promotional trail for his already Platinum selling album ‘Graduation’ – this time performing a mini-set on ‘Saturday Night Live’ this past week. Check out videos from Kanye’s appearance below:
Champion / Everthing I Am
The performances were great. That 106 & Park skit had me rolling lol.
New videos seem to be premiering all over the place as of late, the most recent being for Kanye West’s new single ‘Good Life’ (ft. T-Pain). The song is the third single to be lifted from Kanye’s ‘Graduation’ album – which is in stores now. I’m liking the video, as well as the song, and applaud Kanye for continuing to bring something ‘different’. On a side note, there really isn’t any escaping T-Pain is there?
What do you think of the video?
The above video of Kanye West was filmed by ET Insider following Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards. Evidently enraged, the rapper vented about feeling used by MTV and how it was ridiculous that he won no awards for the second year in a row. The rapper later announced that he’s boycotting MTV.

Though he may have been justified in some of what he said, he’s lost points with me. I mean what was he thinking. Here’s Kanye, a Grammy Award winning artist, now whining about not winning a Moonman from MTV. It just doesn’t make any sense. He came across real dumb for that. Anyway, all is likely to be forgiven as many – including myself – are rooting for him to outsell 50 Cent this week.
What do you make of Kanye’s outburst?

Chris Brown – Wall to Wall, Umbrella & Kiss Kiss
Terrible. This basically sums up 2007 MTV Video Music Awards. I was already sceptical about the show considering the so-so line-up of performers, but it was a complete mess.
Setting the tone for the night was opener Britney Spears. With all that’s gone on, I was hoping she’d silence the naysayers, but this was a complete and utter and trainwreck. A combination of poor lipsyching, stiff choreography and an outfit that revealed her out of shape body, Britney’s performance will no doubt have many saying her career is over. It will be if she doesn’t find a way to redeem herself from that mess.
Most of the night’s other performers offered little of interest. Although I must give Rihanna props for doing her thing during Chris Brown’s so-so performance and later on during ‘Shut Up & Drive’.
The show wasn’t all bad, though. Alicia Keys’ performance was a standout. She nailed ‘No One’, making me like the song all the more. I wasn’t initially all that hyped for her performance, but she was definitely the highlight of what was a mediocre night (at best).
MTV really need to step it up and the show has been on a downward spiral for years. I was thinking it was all award shows, but the BET Awards this year really showed out – beating this mess hands down. SMH…
What do you think of the performances?
“Its not possible for Kanye to beat me, I don’t know why I said that. Its like the teddy bear vs. the gorilla. Def Jam [West’s label] is going to buy about 200,000 of Kanye’s records. Kanye sucks, I’m going to be honest, he sounds like a robot, he has a robot record.”
Their albums need to hurry up and drop already; it’s gonna be a interesting to see 50 justify his losing (which seems inevitable now). We all know he won’t stay true to his word and retire if Kanye tops him (one can only dream), but he’ll be more of a joke than he already is.
What do you think of 50′s comments?
Ciara was joined by 50 Cent again
That first pic of 50 standing alone is priceless lol…though I’m sure it was just taken at the wrong time. Kanye and 50 onstage together is kinda suspect, but I doubt their ‘chart battle’ is a publicity stunt (as some will no doubt be thinking) – they were never ‘beefing’ (like that) to begin with. LMAO at Yung Joc – since when did rappers do strip teases?
