THE DKA LIFE


Kanye & Jay-Z’s Watch the Throne Tour @ Ft. Lauderdale

ZOMG. Best concert of my life.

Man where to start? Okay. How bout a video:

After watching that video, you can appreciate how vivid and complex the show was.  I’ve come to learn, as you should too, to expect nothing less than extrordinary when it comes to show put on by Mr. Kanye West.  Yeah, call me a dickrider, but if you’ve ever been to a concert, you know he demands perfection.  See Below.

Haaaa.  Kanye funny.

Ye wearin' the Yeezys

Moving stages, explosions, light shows.  It was the greatest spectacle since the Glow in the Dark Tour.  No openers needed.  Just 2.5 hours of hit after hit by the duo, with the crowd following their lead word for word.

This was my first time seeing Jay-Z live.  He was superb as well.  P.S.A., Big Pimpin’, and Hard Knock Life, were all great.  Dope picture below if I do say so myself. *Brushes dirt off shoulder.  See what I did there?

My new desktop.

Wait. Kanye was wearing a kilt? Yup. Step your kilt game up son.

One of my favorite performances below.  Brought me back to 7th grade after I bought my first Parental Advisory CD.  Hard Knock Life Vol. 2.  Thanks mom and dad.

And of course I gotta let you all see Kanye’s Jesus Walks Dance.  See Below.

I know I’m just posting pictures and videos.  But its really the only thing that can do the show any justice, until YouTube removes them.

The video below is Can’t Tell Me Nothing.  Awesome light show.  One of my favorite Ye songs.  I got a feeling Bendey will appreciate it too.

Well, I should probably get back to paying attention in class. The concert was dope.  The show ended with N****s in Paris.  They played it at least 3 times.  Every time the beat dropped the crowd went nuts (as did I…I may or may not have had a chubby the entire night, either way…) Perfect way to end the perfect show.  Well done Ye n Jay.  Well done.  Thank you.

DKA out.

–Per request of avid DKA Life reader RauchER!

Bendey had this mixtape on blast non-stop during spring break, and for good reason too.  Sadly, I never took the time to give it its own post and share it with you, shame on me.  Frank Ocean is/has already blown up with his single “Novacane”.  He will also be featured on two tracks on Kanye and Jay-Z’s ‘Watch the Throne” album due this August. (I’m giddier than a school girl for that to drop)

Download HERE via Dat Piff

1. frank ocean – street fighter (0:22)
2. frank ocean – strawberry swing (3:55)
3. frank ocean – novacane (5:02)
4. frank ocean – we all try (2:51)
5. frank ocean – bitches talkin’ (0:22)
6. frank ocean – songs for women (4:13)
7. frank ocean – lovecrimes (4:00)
8. frank ocean – goldeneye (0:18)
9. frank ocean – there will be tears (3:14)
10. frank ocean – swim good (4:16)
11. frank ocean – dust (2:33)
12. frank ocean – american wedding (7:00)
13. frank ocean – soul calibur (0:18)
14. frank ocean – nature feels (3:43)

I’m pretty sure he got signed and this is going to be a full-fledged album now.  Its funny how record companies aren’t even needed today to be successful.  But I’ll save that for a later time, in a post that will never exist because I’m too lazy.

If you wonderin’ who this guy is.  Here’s his video for his single “Novacane”.  You’ll hear it on the radio soon enough…if you haven’t already.

Here’s a newer track that dropped a couple weeks ago. Dreamkilla <–click to download

Enjoy.
