Usher is always very well-groomed and
put together- take notes gentleman.

I’ve been looking around, and it seems that some guys need a refresher on the basics.

Kanye West: 808′s & Heartbreaks Style

Swanky.

I’ve been listening to Kanye’s Love Lockdown on repeat for the past 30 minutes. I’m trying to really get the feel of the song, and it’s deep. I actually love songs like this because we know exactly who you’re talking about… why Alexis Phifer of course. I guess he’s not loving her the way he wanted to and she’s got her love locked down, lol, jk. Anyway I love the look he chose for the album… I feel it’s appropriate for the overall feel I’m getting from the songs. The look is straight-forward, no smiles, pure classic london/american style with that urban gent twist (shoes, brooch, and shades).

His look is robotic… he’s like a modern robot.
Instead of a being made of shiny silverish metal
he’s wearing a gray suit. His posture, his look,
and the sound of the album (that whole T-pain
voice thing) is robotic.

Kanye West’s new album is entitled: 808’s & Heartbreak , and it hits stores November 25th.

You can listen to “Love Lockdown” on youtube.com while watching the video. I just listened to two more songs from albums and you can listen to them too:

“Coldest Winter”, click HERE.
“Robocop”, click HERE.

Coldest Winter… I like it enough, it’ll probably grow on me like Love Lockdown.
Robocop… WTF?

What do you all think about his style for the album and his songs?
