This album is nothing short of amazing.
It’s one of the greatest rap albums I’ve ever heard. It’s too dope. A majority of music and hip-hop fans feel the same way. Kanye delivered an incredible album.
The first few times I heard it, I knew it was dope. It was special. It almost felt like a fairy tale or a film. The protagonist gets in trouble and has to overcome a larger than life obstacle—in this case, Kanye has to win back the world after the Taylor Swift debacle. Eventually, the protagonist overcomes his trials and tribulations.
Kanye sort-of did.
I always liked this song.
The beat is fucking dope.
That’s probably why I’ll never forget this song. The drums are insane. Like really, really insane, out of this world. It’s hard as fuck. It’s loud too. Sometimes I have to lower the volume on the MacBook or in the car because I feel like the speakers are going to get destroyed. But I always return to the knob or button and increase the volume because this beat is way too dope to not listen to at a high volume level. The violin is beautifully intertwined. It’s melodic. It’s amazing. The beat is simply: heavenly.
It wasn’t until I heard Sandman of the Re-Up Gang (Clipse, Ab-Liva and Sandman) destroy it on the dope We Got It For Cheap Vol. 1 mixtape, that I considered it to be really dope.
Therefore, I’ll never let this song die, EVER!
After the whole debacle that was the 2009 MTV VMAs, where Kanye spoke his mind at the expense of Taylor Swift, he took a break from the spotlight and went away. This is arguably one of the best things to happen. As Kanye stepped away from the spotlight, he was able to really focus on himself and his next project as well as give people what they wanted: silence.
