Follow God – [Kanye West]

In the wake of his 9th solo album ‘Jesus Is King’, Kanye West has remained relatively quiet save for his regularly programmed Sunday Service performances and the album’s merch releases. It’s become rarer for Kanye to release music videos at this stage in his career (2018’s ‘Ye’ didn’t have any videos), and when he has, it seems he’s always attempting to shift the very form of the music video itself. The most noticeable thing about the music video for “Follow God”, the second track and a fan favorite off of ’Jesus Is King’, is its utter simplicity. Following Kanye and his father Ray West as they journey through the snow-covered acres of Kanye’s Wyoming ranch, the video focusses on just the two of them. There’s no frills or effects and barely any cuts. A viewer is only left to focus on the video’s intro (an anecdote about a father leading the way for his children as they walked through the snow for the first time) and the text that appears at the end of the video: “My dad came to visit me at one of our ranches in Cody, Wyoming. He talked about his love for fishing, and how he …

Kanye West ‘Jesus Is King’: A Visual and Audio Experience

“Stand up for my own. Even if I take this walk alone. I bow down to the king upon the throne. My life is His, I’m no longer my own” -Kanye West on “Closed on Sunday”, 2019 The ideology of change is something that most people do not cope well with, or accept so openly. People are afraid of those around them changing into someone they never thought they’d see. Some people are afraid of those around them changing to become better than they are doing. Also, people are afraid of change within themselves—in fear of being placed in unfamiliar territories within their life. One area in the culture that change can be extremely neglected and frowned upon can be the music industry. Kanye West happens an individual who has gone through many changes all throughout his life, musical career, and his overall legacy on this earth.  Retroactively speaking, Kanye started out as the kid in Roc-a-Fella who was just known as the beatmaker of the clique. What came afterwards happened to be one of the most impactful artists of this generation. Had he not wanted that change for himself, he would have painted himself in a box early on …

An Honest Conversation with Kembe X

Photo by TooSam By: Jacob Blieu “I just want to push to be human.”  Kembe X has found his voice; he knows who he is and he’s back to loving music. After settling into one of the rooms of The Alter, an understated studio tucked away in the guts of Los Angeles, Kembe’s rediscovered passion becomes immediately clear. By embracing the daily mix of sadness and happiness instead of looking to escape it, Kembe’s found his pocket–a place that shows life as the real, complex, and beautiful thing that it can be if you tilt your head a little and look at it from a new angle.  At 24, Kembe has faced many personal doubts, and even clashes with alcoholism, forcing him to step outside of himself and the music to uncover a new sense of purpose. Since working alongside fellow Illinoisian juggernauts such as Chance the Rapper and Alex Wiley early in the Chicago scene, Kembe’s career has developed in ways no one could’ve predicted, encouraging a sharp shift in perspective as he steps into a new chapter of his life.

Chance the Rapper’s ‘The Big Tour’: A Legendary Moment In Chicago History

Post by Lee Mcintosh “I am so grateful for the love. Thank you Chicago for selling out my first ever show at THE UNITED CENTER” -Chance The Rapper, via Instagram Image via Twitter One of the greatest joys that any fan could have is being part of a city that has major cultural impact. Sports, artists, fashion, architecture and all. In terms of music, there are a handful of cities across the country that have been consistently feeding the culture year after year. LA is responsible for legends like NWA, Dr. Dre, The Game and Kendrick Lamar. New York being the birth of hip-hop brought us legends such as Biggie, Wu-Tang and Dipset. Of course, the south has been providing to a sound that is still dominant today with Trap Music. At last, there is the great city of Chicago providing us with legendary artists like Common, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, and none other than–Chance The Rapper.

Pusha T Deserves The World

Photo Credit: Matt Berg (Instagram) (Twitter) Attending school in Western Massachusetts is pretty much what it sounds like. For those unfamiliar with the area, it consists mostly of farmland, and while the vast space can make for some beautiful scenery, it is far from an urban environment. The densest areas population-wise are colleges and surrounding towns, the largest of which being the University of Massachusetts in Amherst (UMass), with a student enrollment of over twenty thousand. The school is the centerpiece of the area, and as a result, has been able to land performances from big names in the past. Rap music fans like myself eagerly await the announcement of these school-wide concerts, due to the general concert drought we tend to find ourselves in. Live music is abundant in Western Massachusetts. One can catch an indie rock band in a basement somewhere on pretty much any weekend, but rap shows are rare. This past March, the school secured Future to headline a show at UMass, and it was without a doubt a highlight of the year. So, when a poster appeared on a bathroom door outside of my information systems class declaring that the legendary Pusha T, alongside Lyrical-Lemonade …
