Although New Year's Eve is two months away, Snoop Dogg is popping the champagne early. This is the first single from the Doggfather's new LP Doggystyle 2: The Doggumentary, which is the follow-up to his 1993 debut Doggystyle. The collection is due out March 8. Cheers!

Hitmaker Swizz Beatz is on a roll! Today, he released "DJ Play The Beat" (Featuring Estelle) as part of his Monster Mondays MP3 Series. Then Robin Thicke's sensuous track "She's Cold," which is produced by Swizz, leaked online. No word on where this song will end up. Either way, Swizzy is not cold, he's hot right now.

New Music: Kanye West - "Dark Fantasy" | Runaway Movie

 

Runaway

 

Here's Track No. 1 from Kanye West's upcoming LP My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (due Nov. 22). The audio is taken from the "car scene" in the beginning of Yeezy's abstract video "Runaway."

I think "Runaway" is stylistically a great short film. But without a strong narrative this movie is really hard to comprehend. The highlight of the clip is the ballerina sequence of "Runaway," which desperately needed a cameo from Pusha T. That particular performance with the ballerinas was mesmerizing to see. Supermodel Selita Ebanks was beautiful as The Phoenix.

If anything, the "Runaway" video reaffirms that Kanye West is an envelope-pusher and one of the most creative rappers in hip-hop.
