Hip Hop' biggest trendsetter Kanye West has reemerged this past month with a series of hits. He began his come back with the ever so popular "POWER" which reached Billboard Music Top 10 within its first week! Kanye also made a remix with Jay Z which was amazing to say the least. The video shot for the original score of Power started some controversy due to the so called "Illuminati" symbols and references the video was said to depict. The second hit to flood the Internet was 'Monster" featuring Jay Z and Young Money's first lady Nicki Minaj. The track was a major hit, receiving multiple spins on local radio stations nationwide and creating a download frenzy on the Internet. Kanye even managed to tap into his "College Dropout" flow on his song "Devil in a Dress", which portrayed a more sensitive side to his music after his split with Amber Rose. Kanye's performance at the MTV Music Awards was historical to say the least! He performed "Runway" with Pusha T of The Clipse, who was recently signed to Kanye's G.O.O.D Music record label. Their performance topped all the other acts that night, the next morning everyone was chanting, "Let's have a toast for the douche bags, Let's have a toast for the assholes!" His persistence has proven to be worthy, and his consistency to work since his release from rehab has not gone unnoticed. Kanye also managed to get all his label mates together and create G.O.O.D Friday, a song based on positive vibes, featuring Rappers Common, Kid Cudi, Big Sean, Pusha T, and Charlie Wilson. With new material hitting the Internet every week, Kanye is creating a tremendous buzz for his next album which is said to be released in November. The last 2 hits that's caught my attention were "Lord Lord Lord" featuring Mos Def, Swiss Beats, Raekwon, and Charlie Wilson which has a soulful grace to it, as well as "Christion Dior Denim Flow" featuring John Legend, Pusha T, Ryan Leslie, Lloyd Banks, and Kid Cudi. With Rapper Lil Wayne due to be released the first week of November, its safe to say that Hip Hop will be back on its regular function and great music will continue to reach the masses. While we wait in anticipation for Kanye's next move, lets all have a toast for them Douche Bags!
