After hearing about Kanye’s interviews last week, I took some time to allow things to sink in. I spent the holiday mulling over a host of quotes and ad-libs, as opposed to airing my thoughts too quickly; emotional responses to Kanye West interviews tend to open an unnecessary can of worms. Fans and critics alike spent those first few hours explaining his place on the “normal spectrum” as somewhere between genius and severely unbalanced. My twitter timeline blew up as all the “pain” and “hurt” caused by the interviews had spilled over into social networks. Friends and colleagues up in arms over either how much he has changed or trying to justify his rants as passionate blow ups. The Incomparable Kanye West, still as polarizing as ever.
I took down some quotes from the interviews and gave a brief description of some of the names in fashion and design he has thrown out recently.

As a fan of Iman Europe, I had to post this. I know everyone must be so sick of this song since we first heard it back in August, this time it’s remixed by DJ/producer Jarreau Vandal and was put out far before we heard her TLC rework. This version is lush, short and sweet.

In support of his recent underCOVERS EP release, rising Toronto singer-songwriter/producer Nick Nikon is back to deliver a set of aesthetics for one of the project cuts. The compilation showcased revamped covers of three classic tracks, as here Nick has chosen to focus in on Ja Rule’s “Put It On Me” record. This isn’t your average hip-hop cover, though. Nikon goes with reworked electronic-style production and rewritten lyrics to award with an EDM/R&B-type vibe. Throughout the clip you will see the artist recording and performing the reinterpretation.
