There’s a lot of solid gold audio we could have posted up from Kanye West’s new Can’t Tell Me Nothing mixtape, which leaked over the long weekend:
a genuinely hysterical anecdote about the AVN Awards, a Kid Sister remix (“Yo this is my shit right here, A-Trak didn’t ask me to rap on this shit, it wasn’t no favor or none of that shit – this is my shit!”), Graduation preview snippets, a real fresh Xcel-produced GLC song, Kanye rapping over Thom Yorke with Lupe and Pharell…shit, the whole thing is jamming. But we’re gonna have to go with the Louis Vuitton Don’s jack of “Young Folks” (which seems so much more fun to rap over than “Rehab”…) that includes shout outs to Gabe at Def Jam, the “Rolling Stones,” a bag of porn and THE COVER OF THE FADER. Esteemed company! The interlude is just a bonus beat walk through the K West mind garden, but believe us when we say it’s worth the trip.
