Just when I thought everything was gonna get all soft and you would have to cry real tears to get any radio play as a rapper in 2012, Kanye West comes in and changes everything, AGAIN. While Drake was practicin his Jewish pirouettes or whatever, and J. Cole was writing a follow-up to album about crying cause he got signed with an album about crying cause he finally got his album out, and Lil Wayne was putting finishing touches on How To Love: The Album, the only album people would look forward to less than Rebirth, Kanye West was working on bringing the people some legit jams for the summer.
“Lamborghini Mercy, Your chick she so thirsty, I’m in that two seat Lambo, With your girl she tryna jerk me.”
That’s the hook, so you know right away this ain’t gonna be some soft bullshit. The beat GOES too, I don’t know this dude Lifted but he laced that shit. Its from the upcoming compilation from Ye’s GOOD Music label, and his crew gets all up on this one. Big Sean drops some solid jokes, Pusha just kills that shit and talks about how he used to sell drugs I think, Kanye changes up the beat for his part and gets all intense, then 2 Chainz drops some ignance. The video is just them fuckin’ around too and doin lil dances, they probably spent most of the budget on bad ass cars and gettin drunk in Paris. This is def that shit you bump drivin’ slow all summer, plus they got a movie coming out with it too, and that shit is played on seven fucking screens, cause fuck you. And its not just a fluke, his next album should be filled with nothin’ but bangers.
Even better beat, great video, great diss lines to Wiz and Kris Humphries, only weak part is DJ Khaled sayin the names of places for like a minute at the end, but I guess Ye lost a bet with him or somethin’. Then he drops a straight banger remix of a Chief Keef track, and like two weeks later dude is signed with interscope. If Kanye touches one of your songs you make a shit ton of money, and it usually takes like 2-4 weeks. And if he keeps up with these tracks, I’m expectin a solo album full of “N*ggas in Paris” level jams, which is a the logical next step after an album that could not possibly get any more critical praise. Dude is gonna let loose, like he doin up in Kim Kardashian right now probably. Which is perfect timing before all this soft shit takes off, and who started that shit anyway?
Oh that’s right, Kanye did. He was knockin’ soft ass albums out of the park in 2008. “Music writer Greg Kot views that the album “set off” the “wave of inward-looking sensitivity” and “emo”-inspired rappers during the late 2000s (Wikipedia).” And he went all soft mostly cause his mom just died, a little better of a reason than that stripper not calling you back, c’mon son. Just when everybody catches up to him and they start gettin that poutin shit popular, he’s already dusted himself off and reinvented the club banger. More proof that this dude is just runnin’ shit right now, and if anyone wants to hop on trends they better see what Kanye doin and adjust they shit accordingly. Or they gon be left behind.
