The first release in the G.O.O.D. Friday series was the remix to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’s single.
Kanye was able to get his big brother, Jay Z on it, as well as Swizz Beatz. Beatz provided ad-libs and the beat. Midway through the song, after the third verse, Kanye’s second, the original beat switched over to the Swizz Beatz production. He sampled “The Power” by Snap. You’ve heard this sample before. The beat was something out of the nineties.
Jay Z killed his verse.
He rapped some inspirational shit. He advised us to keep pushing through, keep grinding. He reminds us that life is difficult, you will face obstacles and have struggles, others will try to bring you down but you have to keep focus. Once you’ve been through those struggles, you will realize that the only place you can go is up. Thanks Hov.
Meanwhile, Kanye was honest and spoke the truth.
He said that power is a monster. He’s seen people lose, abuse, and misuse power. It’s not a simple thing/concept once you have it. Just as quick as you can gain it, you can lose it in a flash too. In today’s time, you can gain power through popularity but it still goes hand-in-hand with money/wealth.
He continues spazzing out in the final verse and implying that he is the greatest. Kanye was reaching an unfuckwithable level.
