Yes Yes Yes

This is exciting. Kanye hasn't been this emotionally volatile and had this much to say vocally since "Jesus Walks". Some of my favorite things:

1. The beat is almost louder then Kanye himself. This could symbolically mean a number of things, but it also just turns the emotion of the song up about a thousand notchs.

2. The harmonized refrain with an terrifically unintelligable King Crimson sample right behind it (1:16).

3. The ominous Apocalypse Now-esque helicopter thing going on at the beginning.

4. The weird "99 Problems" allusion (1:30).

5. When he goes, "You n*ggas got drrrruuuuuuuuugs".

6. The high hat sounds like its a gunshot in a black and white movie or something.

7. Dwele.

Terrif, keep it up bud.

Sorry for the hypem link. No youtube or skreemr available yet.

  1. best line: "I dont need yo pussy, bitch, I'm on my own dick."

    kanye shows again how being an unapologetic egotistic of epic proportions also makes him so enjoyable as an artist. His self-awareness is stunning.
