divaFotos: Big Sean’s Album Listening Party; Kanye Calls Him the ‘Beyonce’ of Rap

Big Sean had plenty of support from his G.O.O.D music family as he previewed music from his debut album  Finally Famous at The Standard Hotel in NYC on Tuesday (6/7) for a crowd that included peers, industry pros, and and VIP’s.  Kanye West, whose responsible for Sean’s record deal, took to the stage to say some humble words about his signee:

“I apologize I was a little bit late, I had a throne to watch (laughs)…“I believe Sean’s story is one of the most amazing ever because he literally got signed off of a freestyle,” he said. “I feel like he could be like what Beyoncé is to R&B, that he could be that to rap music.”

Kanye is very good at spotting talent, so I have high hopes for this album.  It drops June 28, which is ironically the same release day for Beyonce’s 4.  Will you be buying?  Check out more photos below:

Video: “Can I Live” Pusha T

Pusha T is lounging on a yacht in the visuals for “Can I Live,” the Jay-Z sampled track from his mixtape Fear of God.  Pusha is surrounded by bikini clad divas as he spits his rhymes and looking very dapper in his white attire.  But can we please cut the braids? That’s so 2003. #imjustsayin.

Kid Cudi Quits Drugs

 

Kid Cudi, who is known for his excessive use of marijuana, and more recently harder drugs such as cocaine, has announced to the world that he is turning a new leaf.  In an effort to build his own business and be a better father, Cudder is putting away the drugs for good.  Check out his message to fans…and haters:

I dont smoke weed anymore. Ill leave it to the kids. Im 27 with a business to run and i need to be alert and focused with my mind strong. For those who still get it on, smoke one in my memory as your favorite lonely stoner.

This is not a joke. I know most of you wanna see me all drugged out and fucked up and i know misery loves company, but im sorry those days are over. I had a good run, Amsterdam and all. Im happy being sober. Im happy being a new me. Giva fuck who thinks of me different, you didnt care about me in the first place if you cant be proud and happy for me for growing and starting a new chapter. Im not your puppet or your tap dancing drug addict here to be your miserable muse, i always made music for me to help myself find understanding. I have finally learned from the words in my songs. I love who loves me and who really cares about me.

Learn from this, theres always light at the end of the tunnel. Hell does have an exit, and i found it. For those who are looking for a way out, i left the door open, and ill be waiting for whoever wants to grow with me. Peace and Love, Cudi

This is what I like to see and hear.  I think that Kid Cudi is a very talented musician; unfortunately he can come off as whiney and depressing.  Hopefully, with a clear head, his music will only get better.
