Hell yes, I’m bringing back some old Kanye. I’ve been on my College Dropout thing all day and figured I’d pick my favorite song on the album to post. Smooth, so smooth, and just soulful. The simplistic beat gives a deeper feel for the lyrics. Even back then, we knew Kanye would be great, just from his unique style and delivery. College Dropout was huge, and with the exception of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, it’s still my favorite album Kanye ever dropped.
If we’re really being honest, guys like Kanye brought the hipster to hip-hop and really paved the way for groups like Odd Future by making it acceptable to do things outside of the box.
