So, i'm thinking that every Friday from now on i might throw up one of Hip-Hop's staples, the posse cut.
This particular track is just one of many classic joints to be found on Kanye's latest album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy , my personal favourite album of 2010 and, according to metacritic, THE most critically acclaimed album of 2010.
This is one of Jay-Z's best verses from 2010 and Pusha T, who has been a bit hit or miss for me lately, kills his verse as well. The real surprise is Cyhi Da Prince, the relative unknown at the time this track was released (as apart of Kanye's GOOD Friday Initiative), who's flow is superb, rhyme schemes are constant an adds a nice dose of wit and charisma as well. Swizz Beatz contributes to the hook itself in various parts and while i usually can' t stand the sight (or sound) of him he's bearable in this track. RZA jumps in for a little angry outro which rounds off the track nicely.
The beats perfect for bars bars and more bars and with Kanye & No I.D. handling the production i'm not sure it's possible to produce anything less than brilliance. The tracks got incredible replay value as well, I have to say, it's my most played song off the album currently.
I’m so appalled I might buy the mall
just to show ****** how much more I have in store - Jay-Z
Jay-Z > Cyhi Da Prince > Kanye > Pusha T
If you enjoyed this i'd HIGHLY recommend you check out the amazing album that is Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
