Kanye West on Vh1 Storytellers

Ok, I am one of those people that just really did not like Kaye West’s “*808s and Heartbreak” album up  to a point where I just couldn’t stand it. All that said… I still believe that Kanye West is one of the most creative and most talented artists out today. After watching parts of Kanye’s feature on Vh1’s “storytellers” I finally fully understood Kanye’s reason for “808s.” Kanye is an artist. He expresses himself through his music. Joy and Pain, and “808s and Heatbreak” was his pain. His honest emotion. Honesty that is rarely seen in music anymore. Seeing him preform his songs Live…. made me  see.  I loved it.

For a more complete list of the songs preformed on the show see the 2DopeBoyz post. Here: 2DopeBoyz – Kanye West on Vh1 Storytellers

Introducing: Mayer Hawthorne & The County

From Stones Throw:

“Mayer Hawthorne is Stones Throw’s newest artist. His debut track “Just
Ain’t Gonna Work Out” (aka “I’m Sorry”) premiered on Giles Peterson’s
Best of 2008 (BBC Radio 1) a few weeks back. Mark Ronson picked it up
for his show, saying “I have no idea what this is, old or new, but it’s
fucking good!”

We held off on saying anything about Mayer Hawthorne while we
waited for these heart-shaped 45s to roll in. We’ve got them now: “Just
Ain’t Gonna Work Out” b/w “When I Said Goodbye” – limited 1000 copies.

Mayer Hawthorne is from Detroit and now lives in Los Angeles. He wrote,
played, recorded and sang on these tracks. As for the rest of “what it
is,” check out Mayer Hawthorne’s bio written by Ronnie Reese at the
link below.
