Hidden banger. As much as the Chris Rock part is funny, it’s also cold as fuck. Savage in a sort of “I put you on game” kinda way.
The song playing in the car is titled “Dark Fantasy” (aka, the rumored first track on Yeezy’s upcoming LP: My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy).
Note Nicki Minaj’s voice on the intro.

First in the office…last one to leave, and in combination with Kanye’s latest blog post about creativity we find ourselves posting “Go Hard”.
First off, fuck you Myspace first and foremost for buying out Imeem and then tearing down its site and destroying all of it’s embedding/streaming functions…and thank you Grooveshark for existing (this song is > 10 minutes, so no go on Youtube).
This is the last call for 2009 folks. This is Kanye West. Arguably the most relevant rap artist of the decade and we can almost guarantee that rap would not be in the place that it is right now if he had not popped up on the scene (do you remember where you were when you first heard something like a Jesus Walks on the radio? E’s NOTE: I was driving through North Van with JK on my way to Mad Child’s house…probably to do some intern-style grunt work (ll)).
This man deserves to be arrogant. Check his catalogue and don’t forget that he produced most of your favourite rap songs from other peoples records. Then listen to this song and his story. We’re about to be transitioning to a new year, let’s try and make our own versions of “last call” in 2010. Keep pushing forward and have a happy and safe NYE.
Take ‘Em to the Cleaners had a couple of gems on it, but this particular version of the song (we can’t remember who is/isn’t on the other versions that were floating around) is definitely the best. It came out around the same time that Common had just spit his verse on Get Em High (and until about 5+ spins of that record we thought that he failed horribly until we realized that his flow was actually pretty dope)…then this track with the similar flow and suddenly we thought Be would be an amazing record (which we won’t comment on at this point).
Everyone pretty much holds their own, but after re-listening, we’re going to have to say that Talib impresses the most.
