While on The Life Is So Exciting tour, Fabolous and Pusha T took over the Mezzanine in SF. Both rocking the black-on-black looks, Pusha T makes an entrance in a black leather apron and starts off his set with “Grindin’” and it felt like it was 2002 all over again. As the night went on, some of the notable tracks he performed were “New God Flow”, “Numbers on the Board”, “Mercy” and Blocka” with a handful of other songs. Closing out the show, Fab commanded the audience with a live band in a custom black Brooklyn Nets jersey with printed white roses. Loso and King Push’s indirect chemistry being on tour together makes it seem like they can collaborate more and put out a worthwhile project. Pusha T’s highly anticipated debut album, My Name Is My Name is set to drop on July 16th.
Kanye West’s once-cryptic “June 18th” tweet was in fact the release date for his sixth studio album, Yeezus, as confirmed by Rap Up.

As he will appear on tonight’s Saturday Night Live season finale, there is a chance where Kanye will perform “New Slaves” live. #YEEZYSEASON. SHAKE UPDATE: I’m not sure why some of y’all are even remotely shocked Kanye would title his album Yeezus. Y’all do remember this Rolling Stone cover I put up top right? That was 2006!
