The 30 Day Song Challenge: Day 24 – A Song That You Want Played At Your Funeral

By | 36 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=192887"> It's an undeniably morbid thought to consider the exact song I want played at my funeral. I'm 21 and a college junior, so I don't think I'll be kicking the bucket any time soon (knocks hard on wood desk). However, with the inevitable occasion in mind, there's only one track that I want blaring right before the priest reads my last rights: Kanye West's "Last Call." The concluding track from the Louis Vuitton Don's <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/the-college-dropout">debut</a> not only embodies a funeral in name (the metaphorical "last call"), but also represents the never-say-never attitude that I hope will propel me to a successful career and life.

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.
