Summary: Kanye. Love the Rythem of the track. Not exactly new but this song has been in my rotation for months.
About Artist: Kanye West is.. I’ve written about Kanye up here so many times but in a nutshell I think he’s generally misunderstood and he’s been one of my faces since around 2004. Rick Ross I think is fake and I don’t really like.
About Song: This song was one Kanye’s recent album My Dark Twisted Fantasy (which received 5/5 stars by at least three different major publications) but was first released as part of the GOOD Friday series on September 3rd. I love this song because the Smnokey Robinson sample has so much soul and Kanye really gets in his groove rapping wise in this song. With the classic Kanye sped up sample he keeps this song relatively simple and slow paced as he drops quite a few good lines. More than anything I guess I really like the track’s rhythm.
Favorite Part: From the first verse
“Oh she do it, what happened to Religion?
Oh she lose it” -in reference to Waka Flocka’s Oh Let’s Do It
“She putting on her make up
She casually allure
Text message break ups, the casualty of tours” – Kanye speaks some truth
“Hood phenomenom, the Lebron of rhyme
Hard to be humble when you stuntin on a jumbotron” -Clever way of saying he’s the king
From the second verse
“And outta all the colors that are still up the skies
You got green on your mind
I can see it in your eyes” – Greed for dat Money
“I hit the, Jamaican spot, at the bar, take a seat
I ordered you jerk, she said “you are what you eat” -Classic Kanye (jerk is a type of food, just in case)
“(Kanye Singing)” – 2:31
