Freeload: Kanye + ARE Weapons = Jockin Jay-Z

August 12, 2008

So, from what we've heard (rumors), Kanye is producing every song on Blueprint 3. That's a good idea. You know what's a better idea? Kanye gets even weirder. We're pushing the association a little bit, but "Jockin' Jay-Z" bears enough of a resemblance to ARE Weapons' "Street Gang" that it got us thinking how insane it would be if Mr West's next inspiration post-Daft Punk was our favorite old downtown band. Just for fun, listen to the two songs in question below, and then imagine what Jay would sound like over "Hey World", "Black Mercedes" and "Fuck You Pay Me". He wouldn't even have to change the titles!
