If this is your first introduction to this track then take an extra second to let it all sink in. Read that guest list again. Ummm… yeah. So Kanye spent some time in Hawaii on his next album and if you are hearing this beat then you know it was time well spent. He has also beenÂ unleashingÂ all kinds of treats on us the past few weeks (including “Power” from 2 months back). So we all know that Kanye West is an odd dude, but he really let’s shit get crazy on this jam. Bon Iver is auto-tuned, Jay-Z is rapping about movie monsters and being addicted to love, and Ye himself makes questionable sexual innuendo involving Egyptian mummification rituals. As if all that wasn’t enough to make your head spin, Nicki Minaj then gets on the track and makes the big boys look like a bunch of schoolyard hacks. She absolutely destroys her verse (see lyric above), tearing up the beat with maniacal voices and what can only be imagined is a terrifying fire-eyed stare. I’m kind of afraid of her. In a good way. I guess…Â While we still have to wait a while for the full LP, Dark Twisted Fantasy, I’m not sure I even care. This may the only Kanye jam I need all year. In the meantime, Kanye is dropping more jams every Friday as a part of his Twitter’s weeklyÂ G.O.O.D. Fridays series.
