Big Sean ft Pusha T Tity Boi 2 Chainz Kanye West


The G.O.O.D. Music signee says he originally vetoed using the beat after ‘Ye played it for him.

Pusha T recently revealed that he originally passed on the Hit-Boy-produced beat that eventually became Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Niggas in Paris.” Speaking with Sneeze magazine, the Clipse member said that he doesn’t know if it would have been as good if it ended up in his possession and that he would have attacked it in a different way.

“I tell people all the time that I don’t know if I would’ve attacked it that way which means the record might not have been as special once I got on it,” he said.

Pusha Ton continued by explaining that Kanye gave him the beat and that he simply wasn’t in the right state of mind to rap over it.

“‘Ye gave me beats and that was in the bunch. ‘Niggas in Paris’ was playful to me and I was in demonic rap mode. I was like, ‘Yo, I don’t want this right now,’ he was like, ‘Man, this will be a club smash,’ and I’m like, ‘Maybe, but don’t ask me to wrap my brain around that when I’m writing stuff like ‘My God,’ which is another Hit Boy beat.”

Cons fires shots at the Clipse member and his G.O.O.D. Music boss on the new track.

After making earlier claims that Pusha T stole lines from one of his tracks, Consequence is firing back at his former G.O.O.D. Music cohort. In a track titled “The Plagurist Society” released to MTV’s RapFix, Cons lashes out at the Clipse member in not-so-subtle ways.

“So what you’ve ignited is the heroin flow that’ll eat your flesh alive / Before EMS arrives and the wings of death decide / That it’s time to expire / Yeah, meaning it’s time to retire/ Because you’ll never get a trophy, playing for the Steelers / They steal niggas lines, steal niggas flows / 40 million in, still a nigga owes,” he raps.

He then takes shots at the Clipse, rapping, “You keep fuckin’ around but still don’t hit / And that’s why the mothafuckin’ Clipse got clipped,” continuing, “But still there’s no Malice in my heart / For these poor little wretched clowns that I’ma coast through.”

Before finishing up the track, Cons sends a message to Pusha to warn Kanye West that he’s up next. “He ain’t nothin’ but a body shield for the coward from the Midwest / So yes, you can bet / That your boss is next,” he concludes.

Listen to the track below.


Contrary to reports earlier today that indicated that Watch The Throne would (digitally) arrive on July 4th, a source close to Jay-Z and Kanye West told VH1 that the record will not drop on Independence Day. Further information was not available. Stay tuned for more details to emerge – hopefully soon.

Hosting Jay-Z, Kanye West and Adele on the same track might be every producer’s biggest unfulfilled dream. Luckily, the music scene has brought forth mashups which blend in used vocals by different artists to create a whole piece of music – if executed correctly. This is the case with Urban Noize’s “Never Chasing Pavement” that combines Adele’s “Chasing Pavements” with Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Never Change.” Check it out below!


Jeff Zucker went all out on his son’s expensive event – except dishing out the dough for ‘Ye.

Not everyone can afford Kanye West. Former NBC executive Jeff Zucker took over the Four Seasons last night for his son’s bar mitzvah, but apparently couldn’t meet Yeezy’s asking price to perform at the lavish event. 

Zucker decided to forgo Kanye’s performance fee of $1 million and settle for Drake, who cost considerably less than the G.O.O.D. Music leader. The fete, which cost an estimated $250,000, featured Drizzy performing for guests, who were treated to “tremendous” and fine wines as well as customized Converse sneakers as gifts. 

According to sources close to the action, Zucker considered shelling out $800,000 for Kanye, but decided to go with the cheaper option. Also during the party, attendees including Katie Couric munched on lamb, chicken, steak, sushi and “every type of past you could think of.”
