In honour of Pharrell’s dominance in 2013…
French duo Daft Punk give us the music video to their Random Access Memories standout track Lose Yourself To Dance, featuring the man Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers. Check out the simplistic but retro video, which features probably the first dance ‘pyramid’. Pharrell stays winning.
There’s nothing better for a hip-hop fan than a jam packed album release day and June 18th was just that. Mac Miller, Statik Selektah and Quasimoto all released albums but the most anticipated were J. Cole’s Born Sinner and Kanye West’s controversially titled Yeezus. Initially set to be released on June 25th, J. Cole bravely pushed the Born Sinner release forward and set it against West’s new LP in a head-to-head similar to the 50 Cent-Kanye sales battle of 2007, without the ‘beef’, remember that?
What we ended up with was two completely different albums; with J. Cole’s a more standard modern-day hip-hop album, not straying too much from the norm, while Kanye West’s effort did the complete opposite, in typical Yeezy style.
