One of the best moments of Kanye West's Dark Fantasy is when, after the lengthy musical interlude in "Devil in a New Dress," Rick Ross saunters in. And then he says Spinning Teddy Pendergrass vinyl as my J burns. For every honest moment of Ross' lyrical history that crumbled with the revelation that he was once a corrections worker, this half-sentence moment of beautiful truth trumps. He must have known his verse cried out for the silver screen, didn't wait for Kanye and cut the clip himself.
