Goofy new video from KiD CuDi. This is "Erase Me" featuring KanYe West from the forthcoming Man On The Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager. Can't say I'm loving the new direction.

Out today courtesy of FE Music is Authenticity, the third album from hip-hop turned soul duo The Foreign Exchange. One of the strengths of 2008's Leave It All Behind was the diversity of vocal talents backing Phonte including Muhsinah, YahZarah and Darien Brockington. With Authenticity, Phonte goes it alone for much of the album and I can't yet say if that's a good thing. Perhaps I need to give it a few more spins?
