The first 30 seconds gave me an aneurysm. Then I exed out the window and stopped listening.

I never understood the fascination with Jay-Z. He comes off as a slow and lazy rapper without insightful lyrics. I could see him as one of the many monotone professors I had in college.

bananas.
better lyrics than the original (which had a great beat/chorus...with verses mostly squandered via too much profanity and not enough of a point being made = not memorable/classic material).

the outro/beat switch threw me off at first, but i grew to love it.
this is the only album im anticipating in the final quarter of the year.
i love yeezy.

please tell me you lost a bet were forced to post that............are you even a fan of hip hop culture? Let alone what the man has done individually as well as for the genre?

As for his verse in the song in question.........not bad, but he's had better.

"....Me and my fam' roll tight like The Firm
Gettin down for life, thats right, you better learn
Why play with fire, burn
We get together like a choir, to acquire what we desire
We do dirt like worms, produce G's like sperm
'til legs spread like germs
I got extensive hoes, with expensive clothes
and I sip fine wines and spit vintage flows
What y'all don't know?"
