NOTE: Please read and respect the warning at the beginning, I don’t need any of you to go dying on me.
So yeahhh, this video doesn’t really do it for me and I’m sure I am going to to take some shit for it. The video starts out with what looks like a good video with the small girl walking around the city streets, but then it evolves into Kanye dancing on cop cars with little link back to the opening sequence. A major opportunity was missed in involving that plot of shielding your daughter from the ills of inner city life, however, it was mostly lost by the disjointed nature of the rest of the video. There is one redeeming factor though and it happens to be Rihanna’s boobs, it really is amazing how someone can look so much better when they are half naked lol.
Kanye has claimed in previous interviews that his Watch the Throne collaborative album with Jay-Z is better than My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and if a few more of these singles surface, I just might believe him. I prefer the rapping Kanye and when he spits with Jay it often pushes Kanye lyrically and has been the source of some of his wittiest rhymes. Kanye continues to mingle across genres by tapping La Roux’s Elly Jackson to sing the chorus for him and Jay and despite the title (and my hoping), she never ends up singing “That’s My Bitch”. Some have said this is a reference track leftover from Kanye’s latest album while others claim it is a leak from Watch My Throne, I am assuming the latter due to the audio quality and polished sound often reserved for near finished album cuts but you never know. Shout outs to NahRight for the download link.
Kanye West ft. John Legend, The-Dream, Ryan Leslie, Tony Williams, Charlie Wilson, Elly Jackson, Alicia Keys, Fergie, KiD CuDi, Rihanna & Elton John – “All Of The Lights”
I have to rest my fingers after typing that out but after hearing the song it was well worth it. I’m not sure I heard all the artists the first time through but that is to be expected with such a clusterfuck of artists. Don’t get me wrong though, even though there are a ton of artists the song flows surprisingly well, or I should say as well as it can. Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is dropping Nov. 22nd and the album is great since we have already heard almost every track.
Spotted @ The Rap Up
If any of you follow Kanye’s Twitter, you might now how “All Of The Nights” has gone through dozens of mixes. According to the good folks over at The Real Frequency, this is the original version featuring Drake on the hook. Just like with the other released tracks off of Twisted Fantasy, expect the final mix (featuring 11 other guests) to be much more polished and touched up. The synth horns on this sound great and the track in general is presented in a way that will hopefully allow it to resonate in Top 40 radio more than “Power” and “Runaway” have. The supposed full version of “All Of The Lights” is floating around right now, but I’d rather not post it until it’s 100% ready. If you’re just too damn impatient, then head over to The Rap Up.
