Last night, Kanye West made a cameo appearance at New York City's Industria Superstudio to preview My Name is My Name, the forthcoming Pusha T album. West serves as the album's executive producer and creative driver and  at one point, went on one of his signature rants. Big business and those co-opting hip-hop culture were his targets. "I don't give a fuck about none of these corporations!" the rapper screamed.

Kanye went on to laud Pusha and the G.O.O.D. Music collective for embracing real music and setting trends. "We make GOOD Music," he said. "We don't give a fuck about how much goddamn money you make! We make good music!"

My Name is My Name is the solo debut by Pusha T (due October 8th) and features the stark single "Numbers on the Boards" and contributions from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, The-Dream and Pharrell Williams. Check out Kanye at the party below.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
