>Vic Mensa sucked Kanye multiple times to "earn" his verse on Wolves
>Paul McCartney died in 1962, his first clone died in '81. We are currently on either third or fourth McCartney depending on expert research.

This entire album was created in one marathon session, while Divine Styler was high out of his mind on an acid binge.
More than 100 tracks were written for this
>Detox was completed over a year ago, is 18 tracks long, runs just under 70 minutes and every producer / rapper and friend that has heard it likes it quite a bit. Dre continues to refuse to release it. Is considering destroying all copies of it.
>Kanye wanted Yeezus to do poorly so he could stage a huge comeback, he was planning it out and doing his best to put on an act that would alienate viewers. It's success left him unsure of how to proceed with many of his 'the blueprint' and 'mama said knock you out' style come back tracks already in development now not making any sense
>Neil Young attempted to have sex with nearly every member of the The Band as well as numerous other groups he played with.
>McCartney hired Lennon's killer. That's all I'm going to say.
St. Vincent played in Glenn Branca's "band" at some point. In his "army of guitars" or whatever.
I'm not sure why this isn't said more when interviews list things she's done. It's usually The Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan's band but I've only ever seen anything about her playing with Glenn Branca in one article.
Marquee Moon, the song, was recorded in one take when the band thought they were rehearsing it.
>>Eminem actually did rape his own mother at one point.
This is true, and the most fucked part is it happened somewhat recently and was in some way the inspirations for the song "Headlights"
Lou Barlow started coughing up blood after he did the vocals for "Don't" in one take.

This could be possible, even his talk of it being the 'Nebraska' to his next one's 'Born in the USA' seems like part of a previously established plan that doesn't 100% fit what actually happened. Plus all his new songs sound mixed. All Day was probably from the come-back album for example.
if you fail at failing just try and fail again? maybe. Somewhere on a hard-drive he's got a bunch of partially finished come-back tracks he's trying to figure out how to use them in a world where he can't fail.
