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.

“Truth On You” – Review Of Rhymefest’s El Che

By | 16 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/rhymefest-city-is-falling-video"> One would assume that high profile co-signs, along with an undeniable skill set would be more than enough to ensure safe passage on the path to stardom. Unfortunately, fame is a fickle beast and who you know or who you’re presumably better than carries little weight as to how far you’ll actually go. With the release and commercial disappointment of his debut Blue Collar, Chicago emcee Rhymefest knows this just as well as anyone. After time away to regroup, he’s ready to climb back up the mountain with his sophomore album <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/el-che">El Che</a>, seeking to achieve success on his own terms.
