This past weekend brought us new music from Hip-Hop’s favorite problem child, Kanye West, the Billboard Music Awards and Miguel’s now famous accidental assault of an innocent fan, and of course Drake’s Dada meme’s are just about the only thing you could see on Instagram, tumblr and twitter last night! We’ve brought it all together for you right here!
This past Friday, in preparation for his SNL performance and announcement of his new album Yeezus, Kanye West premiered his new New Slaves on 66 buildings around the world, and invited fans to see it all via twitter. We got a chance to make a few in NYC and LA and while the guerilla tactics of the production company (dressed in all black, matte black trucks, etc.) were a little late, it was still a pretty cool thing to experience. Kanye then went on to perform New Slaves and another song Black Skinheads the following night on SNL.
The next big things to happen seemed to almost take place at the same time. During his performance at the Billboard Awards, being an overzealous performer, Miguel jumped from one stage to another and pretty violently fell into two girls in the audience knocking them violently into the stage. Fortunately the girls weren’t hurt and the singe even tweeted about finding them after the performance to apologize and make amends, Way to go Miguel! Here’s a quick vid of the actual fall, credit to KemyMTV for the vid!
