So we heard about 32 bars on the BET Awards when Ye opened the show, but when I heard the full song yesterday all I could say was “Oh My God.” This track is very reminiscent of College Dropout Kanye; the album that made most fall in love with Kanye’s music and announced him to the game as an emcee to respect. The attack he had took me back to 2003, but with surprising punchlines he remained the lyrical genius we grew to love (and some hate, as he pointed out in I went from most hated to champion god flow/I guess that’s a feeling only me and Lebron know. Pusha T held it down as well, as usual with lines like They love a nigga spirit like Pac at Coachella. Tracks like this make the wait for the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music’s collective album Cruel Summer unbearable.
