September 10, 2008

Idiosyncratically grand, yet…

…I think someone needs to give Wayne his vocoder back.

The vox effects fail to absorb like a genuine vocal would given the emotional anchor of what Kanye’s tryna convey; it makes me feel detached when really I want to become immersed in the subject in equal parts to the bass. (Sort the mastering out aswell).

Still, I await the shrill of 808 synths And further articulation of Heartbreak. December 16th.

I rarely do this, though if you wish to decipher the laments of a robot…

Lyrics:
I’m not lovin’ you, the way I wanted to
What I had to do, had to run from you
I’m in love with you, but the vibe is wrong
And that haunted me, all the way home
So ya never know, never never know
Never know enough, til it’s over love
Til we lose control, system overload
Screamin no no no, no no
I ain’t lovin you, the way I wanted to
See I wanna move, but can’t escape from you
So I keep it low, keep a secret code
So everybody else dont have to know

So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down x 3
You keep ya love locked down, you lose

I’m not lovin you, the way I wanted to
I can’t keep my cool, so I keep it true
I got somethin’ to lose, so I gotta move
I can’t keep myself, and still keep you too
So I keep in mind, when I’m on my own
Somewhere far from home, In the danger zone
How many times did it take til I finally got through
you lose, you lose
I ain’t lovin you, the way I wanted to
See I had to go, see I had to go
No more wastein time, we cant wait for life
which is wastin time, wheres the finish line

So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down x 3
You keep ya love locked down, you lose

I’m not lovin you, the way i wanted to
I met no one new, I got no one new
No I said im through, but got love for you
But im not lovin you, the way I wanted to
Gotta keep it goin, keep the lovin goin
Keep it on a roll, only god knows
If i be with you, baby im confused
You choose, you choose
I ain’t lovin you, the way I wanted to
Way I got to go, I dont need you
I been on this road, too many times before
I ain’t lovin you, the way I wanted to

So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
etc.
etc.
Keepin ya love locked down, you lose.

Yikes.

Kanye West – Champion (Olympic Version)

August 13, 2008

I just sat laughing at the screen for 3 minutes. In the age of CGI, I forget how much mirth can be evoked from the primitive, semi-retarded movement of puppets.

Ye’s timing and foresight, as always, impeccable. The steel-panned, horn blaring, Olympic refix of the joint: mp3 just below.

Jay-Z – Jockin’ Jay-Z (Dope Boy Fresh) (Prod. by Kanye West)

August 11, 2008

Because everytime the first Hovi The God single from an impending LP drops, it’s an event.

“That bloke from Oasis said I couldn’t play guitar, somebody shoulda’ told him I’m a fucking Roc star”.

Take one part deep-frequency bassline a la ‘A Millie’, puncture it with a hard-as-gunshot drum, garnish with an 80s Rick Rubin/Run DMC style metal riff break, chop a madly infectious hook, and finally serve up drenched in S Dot audacity: what’s manifested is the mainstream rap single release of the year- diamonds in the damn air, it’s all over. And sceptics wonder why I call Kanye a genius and probably the most important Hip-Hop producer of this decade? Get the fuck outta here.

How many more anthems does Jigga need to cement his place as the greatest ARTIST in Hip-Hop music ever? He wields the most ridiculous catalogue out of any rapper in this culture’s history. I’ll jock Jay-Z to the moon and back as a standard.

Additional note: if Kanye is producing the majority if not all of Hov’s forthcoming ‘Blueprint 3’ as reports indicate (much to my own salivating all over my chin hairs), then I suggest the people brace themselves for what could be one of the Rap albums of the decade. I have faith.

I see you jockin’ Jay-Z, jockin’ Jay-Z, jockin’ jockin’ Jay-Z, jockin’ Jay-Z!

Fonzworth Bentley feat. Andre 3000, Sa-Ra & Kanye West – Everybody

July 17, 2008

I rarely post single drops…

…but then anything with Andre is momentous (and has been since Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik and ATLiens; I direct this subtle jibe at the sprouting 3 Stacks helmet-hoppers of late who’ve only just caught on… 15 years later). He is arguably the greatest Southern emcee in this culture’s history, and by far one of the most consistent.

(Far Overdue) MTV Hottest MCs In The Game Article

The video which also features a speech impediment (Kan)Yeezy despite bare minimal track input is widespread in blogland, yet ’twas a mission finding the mp3 so this one’s for you inexpert net marauders. To the trained ear this sounds like a rip direct from the video, but at the least it’s pod-worthy. Hol’ tight till I cop that crystal 320kpb shit (audio-geek wank material).

Love the sophistifunk bounce on this joint; those Sa-Ra vintage synthesizers are on point aswell.

What I personally wouldn’t give to slide up Ice Cold to a booty-meat maiden in the club and spout “Shawty you killin’ me hard with them lady pants/ Simple elegance would be better when you dance/ Chest to the sun with a thoroughbred stance/ Ya galloped to the rhythms of a native drum chant…” Shucks.¬†Only in Cupid Valentino’s universe.

Video: Everybody
