Interview: Zane Lowe + Kanye West

I absolutely loved this. I sent the video link out to a few of my friends and said that this was one of my favorite interviews ever. Kanye still exhibits his trademark passion and manages to come off more "human" than in any other interview he's done that I can remember.

Obviously, THE moment people will most remember will be Zane Lowe stopping the interview to allow 'Ye a moment to gather himself after breaking down. He was sharing a piece of advice that the late fashion instructor Louise Wilson gave him about being a parent and about life in general:
So many students...they don't give it their all. The problem is, as soon as they do something halfway good when they're 2 years old, 3 years old, their parents clap. And she just looked at me and she said, 'Kanye, don't clap.'
My favorite quote came a bit later on when Kanye was describing his goals for design:
No politics. Just truth. Does it fucking work or not?

Good Music: BLCK - "Conrad" (Album)

My dude BLCK sent me his new album Conrad over the weekend to check out. I already had high expectations from the 1st single "Came Up" that I featured on a few CNNCT Life Radio mixes and he definitely didn't disappoint. 6 of the 10 tracks are produced by Lambchop which helps to create a cohesive and consistent overall sound. Cardiak contributes his signature sound to the introspective "Dirty Chucks" which features a mean verse from my brother Blaque Keyz.

Throughout Conrad, you get a proper feel for who BLCK is and what his goals & movements are. When I spoke to him, he said he'll be pushing this for the majority of the year. Do yourself a favor and get up on his sound early. Click HERE to head over to his website and support quality music.
