Theophilus London Discusses Writing For Kanye's
20 hours ago
Theo also explains his involvement on "All Day."

Theophilus London spoke to Montreality on his tour bus after a recent show in Montreal.

In addition to mentioning that he'll be back with Vibes part two "soon," Theo spoke about his involvement in Kanye's upcoming So Help Me God album.

Theo says that a candid conversation with 'Ye led to an opportunity to write a song for his mentor.

"He's like, 'Yo, why don't you write a song for me?'" London recalls. "'Do you know how much pussy around the world you'd get if you're on my album?'"

Theo explains within the seven-minute clip that he spent eight hours writing the song and that Kanye is the first person he has written for.

"I looked at Kanye and I was like, 'Alright, you got the wife and the kids now, but you still that sex symbol,'" Theo says. "'Instead of rapping about your wife and saying how you guys have sex, make it universal, talk about what you guys do but don't say her name.' So, every girl can think they're the girl you're talking about.

"I don't know if it's going to make it or not," he adds.

On "All Day," Theo explains that originally the song had a Jamaican sample but he and Kanye decided to swap the sample and use Theo's background vocals.

"Kanye is changing the album everyday," Theo says. "When I heard the album, it was done. Six-to-nine months later, he's still working on it. So, everyday it's a new album when he wakes up. He's the hardest working dude and he's older than all of us... That's why I look up to him." (Read More)

1 day ago
The '70s R&B singer claims he's been "screwed out of royalties, fees, sales and has had his reputation damaged as a result of Dre’s actions."

Dr. Dre is facing legal action for using the song "If It Aint Ruff" in the upcoming N.W.A movie, theJasmineBRAND reports.

According to the celebrity news blog, Leroy "Prince Phillip" Mitchell is alleging that Dre and fellow N.W.A member MC Ren used a '70s sample from his song, “Star in the Ghetto."

Mitchell is seeking $6 million dollars from the billionaire mogul for using the sample in the Straight Outta Compton flick without his permission.

The R&B funk singer-songwriter says that despite reaching out to Universal to notify them of the infringement, they chose to include the track regardless.

Additionally, Mitchell claims he's been "screwed out of royalties, fees, sales and has had his reputation damaged as a result of Dre’s actions." (Read More)

Kanye West Speaks At Oxford University
2 days ago
A full visual recap of the event is expected to be released soon.

Kanye West spoke to the Oxford Guild Society at the University's Museum of Natural History today (March 2) for about half an hour, according to Business Insider.

Students at the University live-blogged 'Ye's lecture, which covered a wide variety of topics.

BI reports that more than 1,600 students and administrators attended the event dubbed by the guild as "the biggest speaker of the year."

While a full visual of the event is expected to be released soon, students provided commentary via Twitter of 'Ye's dialogue using the hashtag #YeOx.

Two of the University's publications provided coverage. The Tab tweeted quotes from 'Ye like, "beauty has been stolen from the people and is being sold back to them as luxury #YeezOx" and "people say I’ve got a bad reputation. I think I’ve got the best reputation in the building #YeezOx."

An editor from the other student-led publication Versa, spoke to BI about Kanye's monumental appearance.

"Everyone went crazy staying up all night to get tickets," said Ruth Maclean, a philosophy, politics and economics (PPE) undergraduate. "Not every lecturer at Oxford is as exciting as Kanye. It was pretty surreal seeing Kanye in a drab lecture theatre in Oxford; 300 students sitting in awed silence as he went on a mad stream of consciousness was not really the usual situation you expect to see a world-famous rapper. I heard him say a lot of new stuff which you don’t really hear in public — he seemed to have a more political slant outside just music — in fact he barely spoke about music at all. He moved from one thing to another so quickly that your mind felt frazzled — art, philosophy, politics — and seemed to suggest a vision of the future where art and politics would not be separate — where creative endeavor permeated every area of life."
