fouseyTUBE: The Kanye West Yeezys Experiment [Video]

San Jose, CA – Funny new video from fouseyTUBE called The Kanye West Yeezys Experiment! Check it out below.

“The concept was simple; put a pair of exclusive Kanye West Yeezy 2′s (Red Octobers) which resell for over $5,000 in front of the public eye and see how society would react. The catch; place them next to a homeless man who appears to be sleeping. Do the shoes have enough power and control over civilians to cause them to go against their morals and steal the pair? Let’s find out.”

Wu-Tang After Party at Fortune Sound with RZA, Mathematics, U-God & more [Photos]

Vancouver, BC – After the recent Wu-Tang Clan show at Vancouver’s Orpheum Theatre, Timbre Concerts had scheduled GZA The Genius to appear at Fortune Sound for the Official Wu-Tang After Party (courtesy of SUP FU? Saturdays, Timbre Concerts and GMAN & Rizk). Unfortunately, The Genius got caught up and couldn’t be found – he actually left near the end of the Wu show, placed his mic down mid-performance and walked off stage.

The party went on. By 1 a.m., nearly half of the Clan rolled through the back doors of Fortune Sound to a rowdy Saturday night crowd of post show party boys. Those who missed the Orpheum Theatre show but made the after-party may have gotten the better deal. Those who did both witnessed Vancouver history. An intimate crowd, played to through Vancouver’s best club sound system – RZA, Cappadonna, U-God, Inspectah Deck and Masta Killa, with the help of DJ Mathematics, spit bars and verses from Wu-Tang favourites, put on a lengthy cypher and scratched and scrubbed on the turntables to a healthy crowd of stoked killa beez. Click the jump to check out photos from the party as well as a video clip featuring RZA and Mathematics.
