Kanye West Debuts New Song ‘Water’ at Coachella Sunday Service

Yeezus rises again.

Kanye West brought his Sunday Service to Weekend 2 of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Easter morning (April 21). Thousands lined up starting at 6 a.m. for the spiritual-themed performance, which took place on a “mountain” in the camping area of the festival grounds in Indio, Calif. and was streamed live on YouTube.

A purple-haired West led the gospel choir and band, dressed in oversized purple sweatpants and sweatshirts, through the 90-minute set, which kicked off around 45 minutes after its 9 a.m. start time. The livestream was broadcast through a fisheye peephole and showed an aerial shot of the hilltop stage, which resembled an eye.

Surrounded by collaborators including Ty Dolla $ign, Kid Cudi, and Chance the Rapper, West opened with a mix of “Ultralight Beam” / “Ultralight Prayer” intertwined with the gospel song “How Excellent” before delivering gospel-inspired renditions of hits including “Power,” “Otis,” and “Fade,” mixed with classics like Stevie Wonder’s “As,” Soul II Soul’s “Back to Life (However Do You Want Me),” and Kirk Franklin’s “Brighter Day.”

Teyana Taylor belted out her K.T.S.E. track “Never Would Have Made It” and Chance the Rapper delivered his verse on “Ultralight Beam.” DMX preached to the crowd with a powerful spoken word, which brought West to tears.

Kanye, who joined Kid Cudi on stage in the Sahara tent the prior night, smiled but didn’t say much until the end, when he rapped on “All Falls Down” and the closer “Jesus Walks.”

Sunday Service also saw the debut of a new song called “Water,” which includes the refrain “We are water.” The spiritual song also includes the lyrics, “Let your light reflect on me / Take the chlorine out of conversation.” It’s unclear if the song will appear on Kanye’s upcoming album Yandhi.

Kanye’s family and friends were in attendance for the Easter Sunday performance, including Kim Kardashian and their daughter North West, along with Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, 2 Chainz, and La La Anthony.

Merch aka “church clothes” were available for purchase, including $225 “Holy Spirit” sweatshirts, $75 ponchos, $50 “Jesus Walks” socks, and $70 “Trust God” T-shirts that said “Sunday Service at the Mountain” on the back. The items are also available online at shop.kanyewest.com.

Meek Mill Deletes Instagram

Meek Mill is done with social media.

The Dreamchasers boss has decided to take a break from Instagram and Twitter to focus on real life.

On Saturday (April 20), he deleted his Instagram page, but his Twitter account currently remains active. “No social media …. all real life!” he tweeted just moments after deleting IG.

The move comes following the death of his friend Nipsey Hussle, who was killed outside his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles last month.

Meek, who was working on a joint project with Nipsey, was deeply affected by the tragedy. “Broke me,” he tweeted following Nipsey’s death. “He really fighting for our lives against our own kind and really have to take risk and match the level of hatred that we are born in .. I’m tired 🙏🏾 prayers for my brother and his family.”

Prior to deleting his Instagram, Meek shared a photo of a black Lamborghini with a woman’s wedding dress flowing out of it. “When I get married this how we carrying it [fishing] for a wife,” he captioned it.

He also posted other cryptic messages. “You spend too much time on women that’s why you ain’t having it like I’m having it,” he wrote in another post, adding, “You gave me more than I wanted … You gave me more than I needed.”

According to Urban Islandz, it’s all part of the promo for new music Meek is working on. He had previously been teasing new music on Twitter. “I should drop another 4 pack!!!” he wrote on April 14, referencing 2016’s four-track EP 4/4.

Amber Rose Calls Out “Toxic A**” Friends: “Soon As A B***h Is Sick + Pregnant It’s Crickets”

Amber Rose

Vixen Amber Rose is taking notes. The hip-hop model has delivered a savage reminder to her friends and family about her very pregnant status.

This weekend, Muva Rose went to Instagram to single out her so-called pals for going ghost on her amid announcing her pregnancy and getting sick.

Last Sunday, Muva Rose went to IG with a sneak peek at her tummy and reveal she’s soaking in good feelings in paradise.

A few days ago, reports emerged about Amber experiencing some early pregnancy pains and needing medical attention.

Sources close to Amber tell TMZ … she’s 13 weeks pregnant and is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum … a severe type of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. We’re told Amber was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for a few days, getting IV treatments because she was sick and losing weight. The baby boy is due in October, close to Amber’s birthday … and we’re told she’s excited to share the same sign — Libra. (TMZ)

In early April, Amber and her boyfriend Alexander “AE” Edwards announced their new baby is coming.

9th Wonder Admits He Initially Hesitated To Buy Nas’ ILLMATIC: “BLOWN”

9th Wonder

North Carolina native 9th Wonder still remembers the day Illmatic came into his life. The hip-hop producer went to social media to speak on Nas‘ game-changing album.

9th went to Instagram this weekend to detail his initial hesitation to cop the 1994 LP.

View this post on Instagram

Running time…39 minutes, 43 seconds. Before the days of Uber, in the 90s at @nccueagle, each crew has its own personal “Uber driver”, whether he or she wanted to be or not. if your peoples let you bring a car to school, you were already strapped with certain responsibilities by the crew. On THIS day, it was a ride to record store. 5 deep. We decided to go to Willie’s Records and Tapes in Crabtree Mall to buy Wu-Tang affiliate Shyheim The Rugged Child’s debut album. His single “On & On” had been played around the dorm for months by all of the New York kids, so we had to have it. At the same time, a very young Nas was being played as well (It Ain’t Hard To Tell), but not with as much fanfare, being the fact Wu-Tang’s debut “36 Chambers” was hot off the press in the Fall Of 1993. Even Large Professor Of @xplargepro told us about the coming Nas on “Midnight Marauders” in November of 1993 when he said “Rapper Nas on Topic”. Still, it slid by us, so off the store. We picked up Shyheim immediately. One of my boys said, ”aye man that dude Nas got his album over here.”. So, I picked it up, looked at the back and said…”man it’s SHORT…it’s got 10 songs..and this CD is 15 dollars….”. I just got a refund check, so I was splurging anyway….lol…so both CDs was purchased. It was a long ride back to campus, so we had time to quickly review both albums. First UP….Shyheim. We thought it was dope, but cool. My boy Ben Dawson said., ”Put that Nas in…”. BLOWN. AWAY. I started reading the credits on production by the time I heard “Life’s A Bitch”. @djpremier 3 times. @realpeterock once. @qtiptheabstract once. LES once…and Large Professor..(you got PETE aaaaannnd Premier on your debut album?) The stories were vivid, the backdrop was perfect…one KILLER feature in @quietazmoney; and as soon as it ended you could easily say, “RUN IT BACK”. It became the “Kind Of Blue” of our generation; arguably the best Debut album ever, of any genre, and the Rosetta Stone for every solo rap debut since, with the iconic album cover. Happy 25th Anniversary to Hip-Hop’s quintessential perfect album, @nas’s “ILLMATIC” released on this day 4/19/94

A post shared by 9th Wonder (@9thwonder) on

On Friday, the Chicago native went to Instagram to reflect on the first time he heard Nasir Jones’ classic.

A few days ago, New York rap veteran AZ – who is featured on Illmaticsaluted Nas on his LP’s anniversary.

Prior to the shout-out, Nas went to Instagram to toot his own horn.
