KANYE WEST BRINGS BACK HIS G.O.O.D. FRIDAYS, DROPS “MERCY”
Swerve! Less than 24 hours after “Theraflu” found its way onto the Internet, Kanye’s back with another new track, “Mercy.” It features verses from Big Sean (tight), Pusha T (typically awesome), Yeezy (kinda weak, truth be told), and in a star-making turn, 2 Chainz (off the chains!). [Soundcloud]
WHAT IF MARY J. BLIGE REWROTE “FAMILY AFFAIR” SPECIFICALLY FOR BURGER KING?
Vulture writer (and old co-worker of mine!) Kyle Buchanan was curious how it would sound, so instead of just tweeting that out as a question, he went and WROTE ALL THE LYRICS. “Come on, put your Coke into a cup / Supersize your chicken nuggets up / Mary J. is in the spot tonight / As I’mma make you eat some fries (Make you eat some fries).” It’s so genius we’ve set our hearts on performing it at karaoke tonight. [Vulture]
WHO TURNED IN THE BEST GUEST VERSE ON ROMAN RELOADED?
According to Grantland’s Zach Dionne, the best guest verse on the new Nicki Minaj jawn comes courtesy of Young Jeezy. Cam’ron, Rick Ross and Nas fans clearly won’t concur. [Grantland]
EDDIE VEDDER POSTPONES HIS SOLO TOUR
Nerve damage from a recent back injury is to blame. Get well soon, Ed! [Rolling Stone]
