VIDEOS: Kanye Debuts "New Slaves" Guerrilla Style On the Streets Of 10 Cities + J.Lo's New "Live It Up" Video

 photo ScreenShot2013-05-18at95327AM_zpsd51b7f15.png

The night before he's set to take the stage at the season finale of "SNL," Kanye West debuted a new song and video--guerrilla style--in 10 cities across the globe.  Check out his conscious rap "New Slaves" and how he delivered it, plus Jennifer Lopez's new video for "Live It Up"...

Kanye sent out a tweet yesterday announcing his new video saying:

“NEW SONG AND VISUAL FROM MY NEW ALBUM BEING PROJECTED TONIGHT ACROSS THE GLOBE ON 66 BUILDINGS, LOCATIONS @ KANYEWEST.COM."

And over at his website, he provided a map of all the places in every city that the song and visual would be projected.  So in the U.S., Europe and Australia, Kanye debuted "New Slaves" for the world.

Why did he choose this way and no official Youtube release?  Well, we picked out a few lyrics from his rap (that we're loving by the way) that may explain.  Yeezy is on a f*ck the corporations tip.  And he's doing things his way.  This means that instead of being a "slave" to corporations like Youtube or advertisers or his label, he's showcasing his music where, when and how he wants to.  And this time, he projected it on buildings....likely with no permits or anything. Gotta love the rawness.

Here's a few lyrics where he discusses new age racism and new age slavery.  With seemingly complete opposite beliefs than his girlfriend, Kanye is speaking against people being slaves to businesses, corporations, publicity, societal pressures and their own minds:

"My mama was raised in the era when, clean water was only served to the fairer skin."

"Used to only be n*ggas, now everybody playing.  Spending everything on Alexander Wang, new slaves."

"There's leaders, there's followers.  I'd rather be a d*ck than a swallower."

"I move my family out the country so y'all can't see where I stay."

"They tryna to lock n*ggas up, The tryna to make new slaves, That's that private owned prison, get your piece today.  They probably all in the Hamptons all bragging about what they made, f*ck you and your Hampton house, I f*cked your Hampton spouse."

Toward the end of the song he breaks out singing.  And after the verse, the video plays with his face on the screen for another minute, likely for a powerful effect.  Check out a capture from one of the NYC locations below:

Free your minds!  Reportedly, his newest project (a follow up album to My Beautiful Dark & Twisted Fantasy), will drop June 18th.

 

In other videos, the sexy Jennifer Lopez released her "Live It Up" video ft. Pitbull.  She shot it on Miami Beach this month and model Eva Marcille also makes an appearance.  Check out the sexy summer-ready visuals below: 

The RedOne-produced dance track "Live It Up" will appear on her yet-to-be-titled album dropping later this year.

Beware of false preachers. If Kanye West is coming to "save" black people we really are in trouble! "Spending everything on Alexander Wang.............." But it's OK for him and his whore to go baby shopping in Paris every two week!!! GTFOH Nothing worse than a delusional narcissistic nigga

I'm not going to debate the lyrics, it's just a song to me. I don't know Kanye personally so his personal life is not that important to me. However, his creativeness is genius. Kanye is very gifted musically. He seems to put thought into his work (whether I agree or not) and seems to do whatever he wants, which is what most artists dream of. He is an entertainer and I'm entertained.

Circling back to my original comment. Gonna through a question out to the bloggers at large- Have I allowed my Asian produced, but African-American mumbo sauce become the proverbial water mellon from days of old? I would like to support more black businesses if there were more that catered to what I consume.

kanye west is nothing more

kanye west is nothing more than a bullshitter. next i will read on this site how you all went out and bought this garbage on itunes. this dude preaches (in this case raps) one thing but lives exactly opposite of what he says. kanye uses horrible language towards blk women, gloats about getting a girlfriend from a home movie, complains how whites are racist yet he selectively ONLY dates light to white chicks, acts a damn fool in public, screams out on stage that he impregnated a married woman (who da fuck does that?!?!), gets pissy drunk on the red carpet (mtv awards) and interrupts an award acceptance speech. not to mention, this nigga is not being totally honest about his TRUE sexual orientation, which is bisexual. the real kanye spent little time with his pregnant baby's mama. if he was any man at all he would have waited until kim was divorce BEFORE he knocked this whore up instead of being immature and taking jabs at kris humphries in a song. a real man would have put his album on the back burner for a minute and attended EACH AND EVERY lamaze class instead of kim's bro-in-law (kourtney's bf) going in his place. this kid will be born with a statistic on its forehead: another blk kid born out-of-wedlock with an angry and bitter blk father. ya'll can keep believing that he will marry kim shortly after the birth of their child. it's a lie and it will NEVER happen. this couple will be broken up in a matter of months from now. so ya'll can sit up on here and talk about how enlightened this nigga is. he is taking ya for fools straight to the bank!

Valid point. However, redemption, is everyone eligible for a shot at it?

redemption is available to

redemption is available to everyone. however, kanye has not shown through his behavior that he wants to change or that he is a changed man. jesus said by their fruits you shall know them.

yeah yeah yeah now he's super

yeah yeah yeah now he's super save ah negro, negro please, oh now you've had a change of heart. For all u sleepers out there if you would have been reading and doing your own research it shouldn't have taken for him to come out with this in order for you to know that we or shall i say "you all" are the "new slaves" but you were too busy parting or on your social sites that are pretty much distractions to keep you "Dumb" to what is really going on or what is trying to be done. People need to WAKE UP because this shit is real out here and learn to use the internet for more than just tweeter,facebook and what else useless way you utilize it because it can be very informative and knowledgeable. But to all those out there that is on KW dick now because he said something that many of you should have already known open your eyes and your mind and ask questions about this so called world we live in, stop believing in what you were taught and ask questions because then only will you start to see the light. God said ask and ye shall receive and this does not always applies to material things but "knowledge" and he said knock and the door shall be opened, once you do this and get on that path of asking why,what, when,where and question everything you were told to believe then your eyes will be opened to the truth and you wouldn't need people like KW to say something you should have already been aware of. God said once that torch of knowledge is lit you have a choice to either stay on your path or resist the TRUTH and the TRUTH will set you and your mind FREE and you will never see life the same again. Get out the Matrixs. But point blank period i have not been listening to his music since he sold out and this one does not change my views of him either he has to do more than just make a song to prove to me he's not apart of the agenda because most of the mainstream artist now say they aren't apart of the agenda but yet and still they make this crap ass music that is not helping our youths but continuing to turn them into mindless zombies, nothing to inspire them to become something positive everything negative.

I appreciate Kanye's talent,

I appreciate Kanye's talent, but it's hard to take him serious. You want respect?Then live what you preach. The guy is an arrogant cry baby who throws a tantrum anytime something doesn't fit into his little delusional box of correctness. I'd hardly call him a leader, and his lyrics and persona are too dissimilar for me to reconcile. So I'll pass.

This my 5th time listening to this shit cause i love it!!! The brotha said "See they'll confuse us with some bullshit like the New World Order" and nigggas love talking about the new world order and the ILLUMINATI , "Meanwhile the DEA Teamed up with the CCA They tryna lock niggas up They tryna make new slaves" which is the fucking truth , you niggas talkin about illuminaiti the government want you niggas deaf dumb and blind and in the system. And if not that, they want you to build up their corporations to make them richer and being the typical niggas loving fashion and hair.

I appreciate the video. It

I appreciate the video. It gave an opportunity to re-evaluate a few things. Pure speculation here, but I noticed Ye seems to embrace the Asian culture to an extent that is somewhat over the norm. While I appreciate all cultures, and I recognize the struggles here in the US, I have to ask myself- Is it worth moving to a different country? Which lead me to think of my own heritage. I love chicken and mumbo sauce which is part of the black culture in my area. Yet, chicken and mumbo sauce is bought from Asian restaurants. I can't recall ever purchasing it from an African business. I also buy beauty products from Asian stores. I can't recall buying my beauty products from an African business. While Asians are not part of the African American heritage, they certainly seem to have redefined the culture. Now in this particular song, Ye gives a shout out to an Asian designer. As a culture, when did we become majority consumers, rather than producers. At this moment there are brand new cities in China that are empty. Ever hear the saying "build it and they will come"? see link- http://www.news.com.au/business/china-building-mega-cities-but-they-rema... . While the concept of being a consumer slave in America might be true, I'm slowly becoming conscious of becoming a consumer slave to Asians. Going to have to give this more thought...
tillie's picture

Maybe the lesson learned is

Maybe the lesson learned is thus- As a culture, perhaps it's time we again consider embracing becoming producers; such as the days of black wall street. Kanye, being a producer himself, delivers the message on a wave length that compels the listener to acknowledge the current state of affairs.

But blackwallstreet got

But blackwallstreet got burned the fuck down, rosewood samething, elaine arkansas SAMETHING. Tons of black business throughout history here in the united states ALL SHARED THE SAME FAITH. Black people are scared because when we build a big sandcastle and it's bigger and better looking than the bully's THE BULLY COMES OVER AND KNOCK THAT SHIT DOWN. It got so bad that one day they created organizations like the cointelpro just so niggas wouldn't think about building. NOW DOES THOSE SAME THOUGHTS AND IDEAS LIES WITHIN OUR GOVERNMENT today??? Maybe, i guess we'll have to find out right??? But we're a defeated and conquered people now , we will never build and create our own because WE ARE SATISFIED AT MAKING OTHER PPL RICH, AND MAKING SURE THEIR FAMILIES ARE WELL OFF INSTEAD our own. You see black people don't care about race OTHER PPL DO AND THEY SHOULDDDD!!Black people want a utopia with everybody else instead of themselves THATS WHY WE AT THE BOTTOM and spend with everybody else instead of our own.

Historically and today blacks

Historically and today blacks in the south especially have been discouraged from owning a business or owning anything. I notice even today, in my area, that every black business I go into has a white at the counter collecting money!!!! BUT I dont see that Kanye has an obsession with Asian designers. He probably just shouted out a business protege who has helped him. As far as blacks being consumers of asian goods, THE GOVT GAVE THOSE ASIAN BUSINESSES TO provide Certain goods and services, and denied other's the licenses to do the same. In the olden days they did the same for blacks. The current govt stifles anything the black community does to lift itself up, but at one time Chinese owned ALL the chinese restaurants and they were the ONLY ones who cooked it in the black and white neighborhoods. THE GOVT CONTROLS WHO GETS LICENSES. THE GOVT PUT THOSE ASIAN AND ARAB BUSINESSES IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY. The govt can shut it all down and return those licenses to the black community whenever they want to.

You absolutely right sista, i

You absolutely right sista, i mean the government will let a nigga throw up a fried chicken store or some silly shit that ca give niggas diabetes and high blood pressure so they can die off quick. But let a brotha or sista start TALKING ABOUT ECONOMICS now all of a sudden "You negros need to settle down, you're moving too fast" , I honestly think if alll black people "the 14% so they say are here" were to stop shopping at these stores and start building their own AMERICA WOULD FALL OVERNIGHT!!! And they are not about to let that shit happen, now check this out back in the early 20's blackwallstreet tusla oak CAUGHT Foreign NATIONS EYES and was being talk about around the world and people we're going to do BUSINESS WITH THEM!! American whites feared the day a nigga could have more power and access to foreign nations and goods than them, SHIT WHITES FEARED IF A NIGGA HAD ANYYYTHING BETTER THAN THEM. The problem is negros don't know how much power they have ANYTIME THE NEWS CAN SAY black women alone spend 9.5 BILLIONS DOLLARS A YEAR ON HAIR goddamnit ya got some type of powerrr!!! Black people collectively just have a slave like mentality and don't see prosperity and success within themselves.

The prison industry complex

The prison industry complex is one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States and its investors are on Wall Street. "This multimillion-dollar industry has its own trade exhibitions, conventions, websites, and mail-order/Internet catalogs. It also has direct advertising campaigns, architecture companies, construction companies, investment houses on Wall Street, plumbing supply companies, food supply companies, armed security, and padded cells in a large variety of colors." According to the Left Business Observer, the federal prison industry produces 100% of all military helmets, ammunition belts, bullet-proof vests, ID tags, shirts, pants, tents, bags, and canteens. Along with war supplies, prison workers supply 98% of the entire market for equipment assembly services; 93% of paints and paintbrushes; 92% of stove assembly; 46% of body armor; 36% of home appliances; 30% of headphones/microphones/speakers; and 21% of office furniture. Airplane parts, medical supplies, and much more: prisoners are even raising seeing-eye dogs for blind people. Jailing persons convicted of non-violent crimes, and long prison sentences for possession of microscopic quantities of illegal drugs. Federal law stipulates five years’ imprisonment without possibility of parole for possession of 5 grams of crack or 3.5 ounces of heroin, and 10 years for possession of less than 2 ounces of rock-cocaine or crack. A sentence of 5 years for cocaine powder requires possession of 500 grams – 100 times more than the quantity of rock cocaine for the same sentence. HE'S TRYING TO TEACH YOU TO BE VIGILANT ABOUT OBEYING THEIR LAWS, UNTIL THEY CAN BE CHANGED, SO THAT YOU DONT END UP AS A PRISON SLAVES. HOWEVER, THAT IS NOT ENOUGH TO PROTECT YOU. EVERYONE AROUND YOU, INCLUDING YOUR FRIENDS, NEED TO BE LAW ABIDING. WHEN THEY ARREST ONE, THEY WILL ARREST ALL. DONT SMOKE THEIR MARIJUANA IN THE WRONG STATE WITHOUT MEDICAL CLEARANCE. THAT'S A SET UP.
