Oh man, Kanye West totally Imogen Heap'd this one. Wonder if he's seen that video of Drake's DeGrassi character getting shot to The OC song? Classic. This version of the track has a wildly unnecessary amount of tags, but you can still tell it's a crazy anthem, kind of like his personal introspective/sorta political "Man in the Mirror" (and, of course, he cribs MJ's classic "Wanna Be Startin' Something" ad-lib). Plus, you can't really help being emotional on a Bon Iver sample. Two former FADER cover stars! Also, Gil Scott-Heron at the end (thanks Schnipper).
