Dave Chappelle is doing a handful of shows at Radio City Music Hall in New York with guest musicians Nas, The Roots, Erkha Badu, and more and was on Fallon to promote it. Dave also talked about being the cover of a PRINCE single and meeting Kanye West.
Props to LV who designed the cover for having her image out there for millions to see.
Dave was funny how he said Prince pulled a judo move by using Dave impersonating Prince as the cover. Like what was he going to do. Kind of like Prince's interview with Nile Rodgers in Essence. Ha!
Chappelle's story of meeting Kanye for the first time makes me wish his show was still around. Check out the full clip above.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Prince still makes the "Hot Things" swang!
Kanye West's wife made sure her mom-boobs got the attention at his Bonnaroo performance over the weekend.
More like Boobaro! Are we right? Ahem. OK then.
Diagnosis: That zipper looks like it is holding on for dear life. Ooof!
LL Cool J appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show last night to talk about his TV show "CSI: L.A." and not perform. Arsenio asked him which rappers out now are good and it took a shady turn quickly.
He liked Kid Ink, Tyga, because they reminded of him when younger. He gave a shout out to Kendrick Lamar as well. Then Kanye was brought up.
LL thinks Kanye is cool when he is not complaining and he knew immediately that more than likely Kanye was going to destroy him. Maybe on a Twitter tirade, a song mix tape, or next time he sees him.
Arsenio wouldn't let it go without putting his thoughts on it, mentioning when he walked into a sign last year. Ouch. It is not like Kanye is actually doing Arsenio's show though is he?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Kanye is set to appear on Late Night With Seth Myers this week where he is scheduled to talk and perform. Will he respond?
Kanye West is pissed. Again. This time at the Grammy's for only getting two nominations for his "Yeezus" album although it is on every top 10 list of 2013.
Last night in Phoenix, Kanye let his feelings be known about the Grammy's.
Kanye, there is one simple answer: Don't do the Grammy's or other award shows unless you know for sure you are going to win. Remove yourself from it.-DocFB
Diagnosis: When you complain about everything, it tends to fall on deaf ears....People who only complain on Facebook status update's, take note!
What are the odds we can have Kanye West keep his mouth shut until his next album is released in the summer of 2014? Not likely, but West's next album will be produced by Rick Rubin.
Kanye turned to Rubin when "Yeezus" was in the final stages of production and Rubin also produced Eminem's latest album "MMLP2" and Kanye kinda took a line from Em when talking about why he is using Rubin again when speaking to Billboard and other interviewers lately:
"Rubin is not a producer, he is a reducer."
Kinda similar to the Rubin produced Em track "Survival" line:
"I'm not a rapper, I'm an adapter."
Reducer might be right as Yeezus was 10 songs and clocked in at around 40 minutes.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Kanye does know that Rubin is Jewish right? Might want to check yourself in recent interviews Yeezus. Check Yeezego sometimes....
Kanye West appeared on Ellen to debut his new video "Bound 2" which stars his baby mama Kim Kardashian. A rap video debut on Ellen? is Sophia Grace and Rosie behind this?
After kicking off his world tour in Seattle on Saturday night, Kanye West postponed the second night of the tour hours before showtime.
No reason was given but we can bet Kanye either wants to fix things with the set or have the lights run smoother.
Does anyone rehearse anymore? We are sure Kanye does rehearse although maybe stopping by Kimmel and being in Paris a couple times the past 2 months hurt seeing things with the show.
The Vancouver date will now be October 31st with the next date being San Jose this Tuesday, October 22nd.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Maybe Yeezus and Jesus on stage at the same time was too much for the human eyes.....
Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kanye kept it real. He showed his intelligence, his sense of humor, his arrogance his drive, and his anger. It was the best interview of his career so far. By far.
Sometimes when you do not get along with the interviewer, it brings out a realness in you. From the start of the show, Kimmel was apologetic to Kanye. Kanye kept it real with Kimmel. He never apologized for his comments but did admit he did not see the skit in it's entirety that started the feud.
When Kanye compared being a "Celebrity" to being in a zoo, he is 100 percent correct. He thanked the paps for showing how fly his outfit is. After a long flight or showing up at 4 A.M. to his house where his girlfriend and baby are trying to get into a car, that press is not needed.
What I got from Kanye is someone who is articulate and smart and wants to be all he can be. If that pisses off old money, then so be it. No one should be limited to one thing. I 100 percent agree.
Kanye is angry and being able to vent like this may help him. There is anger issues there for being misunderstood and being arrogant. The more he expressed himself, the more you could see where he is coming from.
As for Kim Kardashian getting a star on the walk of fame....she is more than a reality star now. The problem is if they give Kim one, then Honey Boo Boo will want one and then Jon Gosseling would have had one. She is more than a reality star and the family rubs people the wrong way. Kim will get a star on the walk of fame someday.
Kanye is sticking up for his woman and the people that are now his family. He is sticking up for himself and the vision he has created and made Kanye West a rapper, a brand, and so much more. Kanye is the American Dream.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Be all YOU can be. Don't worry about what others think. Do what you want to do...and be the best at it.
So did Jimmy Kimmel just prank everyone again? Was his so-called feud with Kanye West just for media attention? Regardless, it worked and Kanye will sit down with Jimmy tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Kanye tweeted angrily at Kimmel after making fun of him on a BBC Live interview and replacing him with kids but keeping the dialog. The next night, Kimmel read Kanye's tweets about him on air, poking fun at him more.
The video has been removed on Kimmel's YouTube channel. Kanye has since deleted the tweets as well.
So will we see a meltdown on TV or a smiling Kanye laughing it all off? Guess we will have tune in. Duped!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Kanye taking a page out of Miley's book a little bit...
