For the third time Chief Keef and Kanye West have joined forces to create memorable music.

From his latest effort released earlier this month he added the genius of Kanye West to this auto-tuned filled track, “Nobody.” The emotional record is sampled by the 1973 hit, “Brother’s Gonna Work It Out.”

Chief Keef reminisces on the days before fame speaking of his many hardships while comparing his current situation embarking on fame. Although this may not be traditional hip hop it stands between poetry and art.

Kanye repeatedly raps on the track heavily in the background, “Not gonna stop, I bet I can’t get down to them…”

Side note: Does anyone think Kim would be playing this track and singing it to herself? Wait has anyone really ever seen her dance?

This record is one to play and drift away to in thought embracing the vast changes of life. Remembering where any of have come from to where we are each heading. Chief Keef accomplishes that on the very eased and emotional track.

#BlackGirlMagic! Solange Knowles to Direct Sza’s (@sza) "The Weekend" Music Video!

That #BlackGirlMagic stays poppin’, especially when two amazing artists come together on a project.

Solange Knowles and Sza are set to make some magic with the latter’s hit single The Weekend from her album, Ctrl. Sza revealed in an interview with USA Today that Solange will be directing the music video and we just know it is going to lit!

“I love her,” said SZA. “I think the universe is just bringing us closer to each other. That’s my homegirl.”

If another artist going to be in charge of the visuals for your song, it may as well be Solange. She already showed an affinity for it with a performance piece at The Guggenheim, titled “An Ode To,” and she’s debuting a new performance art piece in Texas later this fall. Allegedly, the video for “The Weekend” takes place at 10 different locations, so the duo sounds like they’re sparing no expense putting this thing together. Even if you throw out the video, the two singers have been spending a decent amount of time around each other later. Both are performing at the Afropunk Festival in Brooklyn on Saturday, and if they’re as tight as SZA makes it seem like they are, they’ll be using plenty of their backstage time to cook up some ideas together. Maybe a collaboration is in the works, because it’s fairly well known they share a mutual admiration for each other’s work.

Solange is a musical genius, and now that we think about it some of the songs from Ctrl remind us of a few of the songs from Solange’s album Sol-Angel and The Hadley St. Dreams. Are you guys as psyched about all of this as we are? Let us know what you think in the comments’ section below!
