Download: 6th Sense- Love Lockdown

I was waiting to see what some people would do with all the stems Kanye released the other day to “Love Lockdown.” Sure enough, 6th Sense has came through first (to me) with something real cool. He does his own thing with it, which I’ll let him tell you about:

Since Kanye released the stems to his new joint, I went ahead and created something original in which I kicked a verse on. The whole thing is really far out there, but it’s extremely deep and the stream of word play is what makes it. Props to Kanye West & Andre 3000.

And the lyrics aren’t dry at all, check out them out inside.

Now this inspired me even more to hit the lab and continue workin’ on my own.

Download: Kanye West- Love Lockdown (Mastered Version)

The amount of people I heard bitchin’ that the song sounded weird was starting to annoy me, so I’m kinda glad Ye went back and re-recorded the song and had it mastered. Not to mention this studio polished version is pretty cool. I enjoyed hearing the evolution of the song though, through the different recordings/mixed versions of what dropped. The drums are really dope too.

And for everyone who isn’t feelin’ the auto-tune presence in Mr. West’s music lately, he has some words for you:

Sidebar… if you don’t like autotune… too bad cause I love it and have been using it since the College Dropout!!!

Download: Jin - Love Lockdown Freestyle

Time to let the “Love Lockdown” freestyles pour in. This is one of the first I’ve heard, and it’s a pretty good one. I always liked Jin, and I thought he could be more than a battle rapper (RIP Battle Rap, by the way). I think the industry tried to mold him too much and it didn’t always fit. He’s living in China now, so who knows what’s in store for him in the US (he’s making Chinese hip-hop the last I heard). Regardless, when he’s himself, he really holds it down. And he does that here. Check it out. Thanks to 2dopeboyz for this.

Kanye West- Love Lockdown

There’s something very Guns N Roses’-ish about that cover. I’m a lil late I know, but better late than never. Here’s the apparent studio version, as was posted on Kanye’s blog.

And I just noticed on Nah Right, TMZ and all those other gossip sites that Mr. West was arrested this morning for assaulting a member of the paparazzi (not because he released Love Lockdown, as my poorly written title suggests). More details later as they come in. Access Hollywood says that as of this morning, he’s still being held at LAX, where the whole thing went down. I guess you can only take so much when you get cameras shoved in your face all the time.

And it’s called 808’s & Heartbreak. The Love Lockdown single was supposed to be out by now, but no one really knows what’s up. In the meantime, all we’ve got is the video from the VMA’s here.

I noticed a lot of people were lookin’ for this. The stage was pretty ill I thought. This was one of the few brighter spots of the VMA’s.
