By | 17 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=176690"> Adding the Young Money remix all-stars and tacking on Big Sean shouldn't be perceived as a big deal when there's already a family reunion's worth of artists on the original. Obviously, the version here is rough but <a href="http://www.karencivil.com/2011/03/14/exclusive-kanye-west-ft-lil-wayne-drake-big-sean-lights-remix/">Karen Civil proclaims</a> the spicking clean joint should be dropping soon.

Video: Footage of Kanye West & Rhymefest Making “Jesus Walks”

By | 23 Comments

<a href="http://theboxhouston.com/videos/thechile/rare-footage-shows-kanye-west-with-rhymefest-making-jesus-walks-2/"> Artistry is derived from it's vessel's drive. Much more than some social media status or community college course requirement, artistry is the passion to see a vision through from spark to flame and the will to conquer any and all adversaries that try to stop you along the way. At one point or another during their lives, most people attempt to be artists, yet their engines lack the horsepower to allow their goals to see the beautiful light of day. Simply put, some people have what it takes while others don't. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/kanye-west">Kanye West</a>, one artist with a God-given stage name, has always known he's been in possession of that "it" factor.
