Kanye West’s 808s & Heartbreak Named Most Groundbreaking Album | Hip-Hop Wired

Want to hear my new album? Rogen said of a recent hotel run-in in the new issue of Rolling Stone, according to Consequence of Sound . So he takes us to this limo van and starts playing his album except theres no lyrics only beats. So he raps the whole album and after each song, he stops it, like So what do you think? We were in the van for two hours! Rogen was a lucky fan, sure but Ye treating him to that unique experience wasnt completely out of the blue; the two seem to have gotten to know each other a bit over the last year. In late 2013, the actor and his frequent collaborator James Franco parodied Yes Bound 2 music video with Seth playing Kim Kardashian and Franco as Yeezy. The rapper apparently liked Bound 3 so much that he invited the two to perform at his wedding , though they collectively decided it might not be the best idea. The comedian, whose new movie, The Interview, which also stars Franco, is out on Christmas Day, did have an appreciation for his unusual listening session and not just because hes a fan.
