Kanye Storytellers

The guy is brilliant, albeit completely obsessed with himself.  Here are “Flashing Lights”  and “Good Life” from his extraordinary performance on VH1 Storytellers last night; shit is just dirty:

UPDATE: Here is a link to download the whole concert in mp3 format and here’s another to download each song individually.

The new single, “Love Lockdown,” is set to hit iTunes “any minute now,” and rumor has it that this announcement conveniently coinciding with Kanye’s performance to close the VMA’s on Sunday is no accident and that we’ll probably hear it for the first time that night.  Yes, I am gay for Kanye; I don’t care.

UPDATE [9/10]: As so boldly predicted by Blogbdon, Ye’ closed out the VMA’s on Sunday evening with “Love Lockdown,” the first single off of his upcoming album and a song he has since called his “favorite song 2 date.”  More importantly, the aforementioned new Kanye album, entitled “808′s & Heartbreak,” is set to drop on December 16th.  Here is a video of the dope-ass performance (that I can’t get to center on the page for some reason):

Speaking of being gay for Kanye, he released yet another single off of “Graduation” and, thus, another insane video to go alone with it.  This song (“Good Morning”) has always been, in my opinion, the best song on the album, but this video really takes it to another level.  Enjoy:

I know I recommend all of Kanye’s videos on this blog, but I do so for good reason: each and every one is fantastic. Even though it is the SIXTH single to drop from Graduation, Mr. West did not hold back on “Champion,” as, once again, he is able to find the perfect blend for a music video: a hint of social consciousness (setting: the Olympics) and a shitload of style (the video is acted out by freaking muppets). Trust me, this is worth a watch.
