Kanye West Reveals Big-Name Collaborators on ‘Yeezus’

WITH RICK RUBIN AS EP I CANT WAIT TO HEAR THIS

Daft Punk is playing in Kanye’s house.

Kanye West’s hugely anticipated “Yeezus” promises to be some party, with the French electronic music masters tipped to appear alongside the likes of Chief Keef and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon.

In fact, Chief Keef and Vernon are expected to appear on the same song — a track entitled “Can’t Handle My Liquor”.

Word got out from a “Yeezus” listening session Monday night at New York’s Milk. On the night, West confirmed that Daft Punk worked on three or four songs, and he shared a track that reworks TNGHT’s “Higher Ground” with Billie Holiday’s “Strange Fruit,” Pitchfork reports.

West also revealed that Rick Rubin had executive-produced the album.

According to the AP, the album has a “dark, moody vibe that expands beyond his last two solo efforts,” and it’s a departure from his first three, hit-filled albums.

HELP SAVE BLACK RADIO

HERE WE GO AGAIN OLD ASS PEOPLE TRYING TO MAKE MOVES. JOHN CONYERS THIS GUY IS 80 YEARS OLD HE CAN’T EVEN HEAR THE MUSIC. I ADVISE ALL THE LIFERS TO HIT HIM UP WITH A NOTE OR SOMETHING LETTING HIM KNOW YOU DISAGREE WITH THIS BILL. PLEASE READ THE POST.

TO MY RADIO ONE FAMILY:
The Honorable John Conyers, our 80 year old African-American Congressman is the sponsor of a new bill that could put many black owned radio stations out of business. And force others to abandon their commitment to provide free music, entertainment, news, information, and money losing formats like gospel and black talk.

This is Cathy Hughes, founder and chairperson of Radio One with an urgent call to our Radio Family.
The John Conyers Performance Tax Bill is the brain child of the foreign owned record industry who would receive at least 50% of the revenue that would be charged to radio stations in order for them to play music. The music that you now receive free from us – we would have to pay millions of dollars for.
And20in the midst of this economic depression, black radio stations simply do not have that financial ability.
There has been only one hearing on the bill and that hearing did not have any black ownership representation. Black radio owners and community leaders including Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev. Al Sharpton, Dick Gregory, Tom Joyner, and myself have all begged Conyers to at least allow us the opportunity for a hearing. He has flatly refused.
We now ask you, our radio family, to assist us in saving the future of black radio. Please call or email or visit the offices of John Conyers today. His phone numbers are 202-225-5126 and 313-961-5670 and his email address [email protected]
TELL HIM that you oppose this bill that would murder Black owned radio and the free music that you now hear on all free radio stations. In the midst of an American economic recession, it is not the right time to send millions of dollars to foreign owned record companies that don’t even pay taxes like you and me in this country. This bill is not in the interest of Black people! Please help us save Black radio!

WANT TO LEARN MORE? See below why it is IMPERATIVE that we act to save Black radio:

1 . The promotional value of free local radio airplay translates into significant revenues for artists and record labels:
According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), record sales in the United States in 2007 were approximately $10.4 billion;
Touring revenue in 2007 in the U.S. was approximately $5 billion;
The above figures exclude the several billion dollars derived annually from merchandise, songwriting royalties and licensing deals for commercials, films, etc.; and
Also excluded is the boost that U.S. popularity provides for foreign sales and concerts.
2. Local radio also actively promotes artists by:
Devoting considerable and valuable airtime to promoting artists’ concerts;
Featuring artist weekends
Providing opportunities for live in-studio performances; and
Creating buzz through on-air ticket and album giveaways, helping to drive concert and merchandising revenue.

Without doubt, the engine driving these billions of dollars into the pockets of the record labels and artists is free, local radio promotion.
“Artist Examples of Increased Sales From Local Radio Airplay”
Each of the next graphs details and compares the spins on over-the-air radio (highlighted in red on each graph) with the retail sales and downloads of the artists’ releases (highlighted in blue on each graph). The results are consistent in every artist example: Significant play on radio results in si gnificant sales of the artist’s song, demonstrating the significant promotional and economic impact that free, local radio provides to the recording industry.
The recording industry suggests that the Internet and viral marketing is now the way to break a new artist.  However, despite numerous new methods for artists to showcase their music, such as MySpace.com, retail outlets, etc., radio’s promotional value in spiking and sustaining sales is clearly demonstrated by the information included below.
