M.I.A. & Kanye & friends (via Kanye's blog)
MIA and Kanye

Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, and N.E.R.D. are playing Madison Square Garden again on August 5th. Tickets go on sale Friday June 13 @ 10am. I didn't forget about Rihanna - her name doesn't seem to be on the bill this time around.

Kanye has a new video for "Flashing Lights". N.E.R.D. has a new video. Their last show at MSG was in May. Kanye then played another NYC show the next night and surrounded himself with half-naked girls dressed as astronauts. Video from that below....

NSFW

M.I.A. has nothing to do with this post except for the picture. Her last NYC show was at McCarren Pool where there were lots of flashing lights though, and she also had girls on stage.

So, does the constant updates on BV about everything Kanye West mean he has "indie cred" somehow, someway?

i have zero interest in anything that kanye west, mia, santogold, or lupe fiasco do.

There aren't "constant" updates about Kanye here. But I'd rather read updates about Kanye West than Eugene Mirman or some obnoxious hipster comedy troupe.

I saw the first show at MSG and even though this will be the same exact show, I will still go again! Straight crack!

@10:28 - who gives a shit if he doesn't like those people? he could just as well be listening to other (better) artists of color. your attempts at racializing are fucking lame.

so i'm listening to wfmu now, and they're playing "creator" from santogold. holy shit! she has completely ripped off that m.i.a. (diplo) riff from the first record. dear god. not only does she look exactly like her, but she's stealing her music too. i mean, it's not as though mia exudes originality, but fer fuck's sake, get your own style to rip off.
