"'Cause the same people that tried to black ball me/Forgot about two things: my black balls" - BEST LINE IN THE WHOLE SONG
Love the creativity of this song, especially whatever Kanye was singing into (and that he had RAEKWON using it too) and KiD CuDi and Tony Williams (I think that's his name) go great together on the hook. One of the many reasons MBDTF is great.
this shit kills, kanye west is the fuckin' king... 5
That joint went hard right there Kanye doin his thing yo.
dats some good shit rite there nigga, mhmm nigga be killin' dat shit!
cool combo Kanye ripped it
yo r u tired of bullshit hiphop songs u cant relate to?? like bentleys private jets n bullshit?
lemme me know what yall think hip hop dx
Kanye Went The Hardest on this Song, and i don't Really Care for the Beat that Much! He Said "I Treat the Money,Like the Goverment Treat Aids,I won't be Satisfied till all my N*ggas Get it" then he said "Choke a SouthPark Writer with a Fishd*ck" lol,He Went in!
dope! kanye plus cudi add rae = super dope
Ye know im listenin to this song everytime i listen to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album.
this jawn is monster, i've always fucked with chef real heavy..cudi handled that hook well. 'ye verse was pure 'ye.
I just now like really, really listened to this song, and I realized how much Yeezy reallly killed it! He's really stepped his lyrics game up, and all three verses was on some real sh*t. And Chef at the end with the beat switch was epic! I hate that there are ppl who won't give Ye a chance b/c of one eff up he made over a year ago
Nah bro its not what he did to that little girl on stage.. its what he has been doing and how he has been acting since he first came out.. he acts like a bitch and is a straight up drama queen with an ego thats out of control. he is just an asshole!! he got serious mental issues. and it doesnt shock me that young kids think he is the best rapper out because pop music and pop rap has taken over and totally brain washed the people into thinking its real hip-hop!! its gay!! wanna listen to some real music. type in vinnie paz. his album season of the assasin is as raw as it gets!!
actually Lupe is up there but kanye is killing it people just hate on him cuz of what he did to a country singer psh plz who cares he a beast his album n ems album probly the only good ones out n plZ dont tell me drake shit tuff cuz shit was weak
Kayne is the best rapper right now, if not prove me wrong. No punch lines like Wayne, no pre school rap like Drake this is just hip hop, but prove me wrong I'll wait.
also another thing...joe budden is better than kanye. no doubt
im the best rapper on this planet, im mc sheckles and i go harder that any of these nickers..if u wanna judge just type in mc sheckles in youtube. I want them
Dude that's BLASPHEMY (sp) for you to say Kanye is the best EMCEE (and realest now)...You OBVIOUSLY don't listen to underground hip hop. Yes, Kanye makes good albums usually (and is a top notch/unique producer), but TECHNICALLY as an emcee he's average at best and I can name 25-50 LIKE THAT killing him LYRICALLY...Even in the mainstream, Em (even Em haters MUST admit he had BY FAR the illest verse on Forever as most emcees have said), Jay, Andre 3000 (if and when he comes back to SPITTING), Luda (when he's not on radio ish but more MVP w/ the primo beat or how he spits when he collabs w/ nas/jay/jada/etc), Lupe are all better LYRCISTS than him (Common, Black Thought from the Roots, Mos Def, Pharoahe Monch, Nas and Kweli are killing him too, but they rarely make the radio in 2010 sadly)...
This isn't even counting dudes you may or may of not hear of (you named Jay E and Joe B who are solid lyricists for sure, but not TRULY underground per se)...How bout Elzhi, Crooked I, Diabolic, Royce 5'9, Louis Logic, One Be Lo, Percee-P, Juice, KOOL G RAP (legend), Masta Ace (legend), Redman, most of Wu-Tang to name A FEW
A pop fan, dude are for real I don't even listen to shit that is out there. Most of the rap I play in from the 90's, just that you are so caught up on dude being an asswhole. Who give a damn about how another grown man act, shit look at how 3,000 dress and he is in my Top 5 dead or alive. So what I am saying is that good music is good music.I mean yes it dope rappers out there like Jay E, Joey or even 3,000 but the way Kayne paint the picture it is very rare these days.
wow the last of the real emcees??? man i cant believe you just said that. and no i dont listen to drake or any of that bull shit.. and right off the top i can list a bunch of emcees better then kanye. talib kweli is the first that comes to mind. thats just one.. the list goes on but they are underground emcees that someone like you has never heard of cause seems to me that your a typical pop fan because anyone who says kanye is as real as it gets or the last real emcee has no clue about real hip-hop. ever hear of vinnie paz? canibus? ever listen to underground rap? kanye is a fuckin fruit with an ego bigger then the planet! come on man!!
If someone else out there that is better than point them out. I been listen to hip hop since 84 so I have seen and heard them all. No one touching Kanye not even Jay. I hope you are not saying Yong Money cause that is what killing rap. Just saying he the last of a pure M.C.
really? the best? i am trying to figure out why people think that. i want to like his music but i cant get past how much of an asshole he is and has been. and i dont want to focus on what he does outside of music because they say you should just listen to the music but how can i get past his bullshit? he just seems lost and confused, very self loved and rude. basically he acts like a fagget! i cant support someone who acts like he does. peace, www.reverbnation.com/ronnieguess
ye D BEST HANDS DOWN
contemplating buying the album now or
when i get real money,
One of, if not the BEST lyrically driven song Ye' has ever dropped. Song is pure genius from start to finish.
Agreed. Not sure people really see how prolific the lyrics are on this one!
Kanye is a Genius
Good song, Cudi kills the hook, Nice job by Kanye and Kwon too.
Man, 'Ye cant do no wrong right now. Everything out is nice. Lyrics witty as fuck. And Rae as usual.
Kudi's hooks are Magic like Drakes hooks for Young Money. You digg me ?
YOu dig em
i visited ur channel. u funny bro. keep doin ya thing. how long it take u to edit ur vids tho?
yo your youtube channel is fuckin hilarious. Should go into show biz nigga
I'm diggin the hook
Fire!...CuDi on the hook sets the tone, Ye rips it line for line. Reakwon closes with a classic verse.
Kanye G.O.O.D Friday making history.
Wow, Kwon killed his verse. You already know Ye is the best in the game.
This a perfect song they could have rick fouche on word up!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZcB-e5Xjk0
Ye' Killed it
I swear this sounds lie a rza beat with kid cudi on the hook...
Kanye did kill it tho.... rae wasup too his same old same old smoke a swish rockin a galindin...behavior
Kanye is all rite, Cudi's nice on the hook but Rae really killed this shit! The album is nice but I want to hear the final album version wit some nice headphones. kanye's beats are so complex that u can't play them on some weak ass speakers, that's dat 200$ headphones'music rite here!
Peace from France,
Did anyone criticizing Kanyes lyrics actually listen to what he was saying? This is great!
the beat is stolen or "heavily sampled" if you will, lyrics are typical for kanye saying how great he is, and about soem random bitch. He can never make a song about anything else anymore.
rae did in 1 verse what kanye barely did in 3
and rae killed it too..but knye got a lot more hidden context than what yu lookn for when you listen..
did even listen to kanye or did you jst hear half of a bar out of all three verses...
Great track but they took Kanye's verses from a freestyler about a month ago he did with Pusha T. Still great track though
It wasn't a freestyle that Kanye did at Hot 97 with Funkmaster Flex it was the same pre-written rhymes he recorded previously to this song. Still dope though.
Man kayne is a REAL Artist.. too talented...
rae's filler verse killed all 3 ye's full verses lol but ye's dah man though
if he got killed how is he still the man?
Great music. I love the beat switch when the Chef comes on.
Words cant describe how great this song is.
Kanye and Cudi are my two favorite artists and this song is just great
rae please stay away from these alterna-rappers....kanye is milk...cudi's a drunk///don't understand everyone standin' up for this....1 outta 10.... REALLLY?!!...WOW!!!turrrrrrrible
u stand alone at that alone
This track officially solidifies the fact that Kanye is number one in the game right now. OMG, ARE YOU KIDDING ME. From the raw emotion, the dope lyrics, the cudi chorus, the epic sample, the chords behind it. CMON PEOPLE THIS JOINT IS FIREEEE.
Exactly. This shit is gorgeous.
Beats! Beats! Beat!

Forget thinkin of any reason kanyes not number 1 right now.. the amount of music lately while still keeping the quality way up and spreadin the features around.. this shits unreal.. kanye set the bar way up and he's number 1 in the game hands down!
This is absolute FIRE.
My favorite track so far. Kanye is absolutely wearing the crown right now. Innovation. Creativity. Originality. Soulful. Thoughtful. This dude is an ambassador for the game. I'm down for Lupe lyrically but he could NEVER TOUCH this kind of artistry. This nigga is SONICALLY STUPID right now.
He in the zone and hiphop can only stand back and watch as these rappers just keep feeding him the rock.
I love this shit! Kanye goes in for real
Kanye is goood. No, he's amazing, but don't ever say he's the best rapper alive. Please comment smart.

after many years, i think I may have to give Kanye his props! if that is any indication of what's to come, i may be converted to a Kanye fan.
hear me out here:
proud of that lil pants wearing nigga!!!
this hip hop right here... im feelin this
wu-tang will never die
this is crack MUSIC! Yo im hearing kanye signed this kid rick fouche. this is his video
Ye and Cudi, classic colab
Kanye's sounding like the best rapper alive-scratch that - the best Hip-Hop ARTIST right now, real rap. He's bringing the lyricism crazy and he's elevating his production. 5/5
Ye is officially the greatest Hip-Hop musician of all time. We're not talkin metaphors or petty punchlines here (although we could because Ye's bars have been insane lately). I'm talking about the emotion and passion this guy has for his craft. From his production and songwriting to his classicly crafted albums. This guy shits GOOD music. Even his presentation and marketing always breaks ground.
Add that to the fact he went plat a bunch of times, times that by his influence on pop culture, plus consistency...
Now if he could just stop throwin hissy fits long enough to keep this up he could really claim the thrown for good.
Fire. Please be on the album.
I really hope this is on the album this is fire.
Remember, Remember the 5th of November.
type 'Caveat Emptor' on datpiff for more.....
Kanye is a monster, new album will be crazy. He is actual hip hop, like my boy. Check his shit out, guaranteed you will like him because his shit is real, the shit that draws emotion.
Kanye rapping on his tracks should be illegal! Dude goes hard hate it or love it that's him! GOOD Music $ho!
what the hell is tagged up mean? 3/5
that shit u hear thats not suppose to go on the song, like mixtape.com exlcusive or whatever
Forgot 2 things... My ballsss!!! haha 'ye you so nasty
Inspirational i love this
Kanye taking over now bitches
You gotta put this on the album
put this on the album ye!
dis ol nigga rakwan needa hop off dis young rap shit and let ma nigga lil twist get on
i can tell your a dumb mother fucker, lil twist sucks.
There's absolutely no way at all whatsoever in life on earth that you're serious about that statement, no way no how. Unless you're Li'l Twist himself stating this which I'm sure he wouldn't say with that dried out 2004 fro-hawk.
if it wasn't for Raekwon then these young dumb rap niggaz wouldn't be trying so desperately to become rappers today...Rae is here to guide these dumb young senseless rappers who can't measure up to shit...Nobody knows Lil Twist by the way...Sounds like a fuckkin' Soda Pop name that Lil Wayne came up with under his Yung Funny Camp!
lil twist need to hop on birdmans dick lil dick
shut da fuck up raekwon kiils dis with his verse at the end. Wu Tang 4ever
Nice, wish all of these were a suprise on the album.
Thank you, Kanye.
Nothing better than seeing a GENIUS prove all his doubters wrong.
He pretended he "sold out" to get the attention of the masses...
Now that he got it, he's takin' back to that real hip hop...
Cap When you droppin another album!
Kanye been hangin' with 88 keys too long, he keeps doing that voice box rap.
Ye and Yela Nov. 22, 23. GET EM!!!
lol@ yella,that nigga from NWA....haha big up dj yella
yelawolf dummy. and who the fuck u talkin bout?
who's Yella? That nigga from NWA? lol
Oh yeah. This is the joint I heard a snippet of on Ye's movie. DAWG THIS IS FIRE MAN!
G.O.O.D. Music running shit now Damn!
I don't know how the hell anybody downplays Ye's verses on this track, this track is all things good in Hip Hop right now... Great contemporary production, witty lyricism, and the presence of newly re-implemented harmonic choruses....
Yall go cop that Lloyd Banks album HFM2 Nov. 22nd. It's gonna be the album of the year. Support Hip Hop!
BANKS NIGGA HFM2
f*ck that sh*t. n*gga.
this shyt is wacckkk az fluck.. why is it on everysite I heard it 1st on http:/www.checkmatenewyork.com and now I come here and hear it again? wtf... booo
go kill your self fucktard
Not till my nigg@s get it, get it?
rae is the greatest mc ever no doubt killed it kanye or cudi nowhere near
This. Rae is murder.
ODD COMBINATION WITH KANYE AND RAE BUT IS HOT!
Kanye brung on here, Cudi on the hook, Rae's the dude but he didn't fit on dis song.
Love Love this song! Can't wait for the album.
GET EMINEM DICK OUT YALL STUPID ASS MOUTH...THAT NIGGA WACKKKKKKKKK AS FUCK AND NOBODY WANT HIM ON THEY ALBUM IN 2010..LET THAT NIGGA BE..NO EVERY SONG WILL NOT BE HOT IF HE WAS FEATURED..HE AINT BEEN FEATURED ON NIGZ ALBUMS FOR THE LAST 10 AND HE PROLLY WONT BE FOR THE NEXT 10..LET RAPELVIS CONTINUE TO DO HIS NUMBERS..WITH HIS "SOFTCORE" RAP MUSIC WHERE HE SCREAMIN AND YELLIN(SHIT YALL MISTAKE FOR LYRICS)..NOBODY IN THE STREETS,CLUBS,OR "REAL" HIPHOP CIRCLES PLAY THAT CLOWN..STOP REWRITING HISTORY..
He does it on purpose! He acts & rhymes cornee on his pop songs to sell his records & singles but, But, But on his underground sh*t...it's a WRRRAP! Even Nas said he murdered Jay-Z on his own sh*t! I need not say anymore because half the ppl I argue with are NOT into underground sh*t, they on that radio crap! Which is kool but you gets NO LOVE! LOL's
You obviously have been sippin' on some Haterade...Eminem is perhaps the G.O.A.T. Generic rap fans will never & can never respect Em cuz he unfortunately hardly rhymes w/ ebonics...slang...street lingo/street terms...nothing against black ppl but if I was black, I don't want to listen to a Cracker/Wigger spittin' corny "Hickory Dickory Dock" white sayings n sh*t but that's just it!
Dude i rolls with you. Em is wack. Mafukaz be on his dik like hardcore.
ain't been hot since 2001-MMLP
"IM NOT AFRAID" Recovery = White ppl garbage muzik
U R DELUSIONAL! REAL NUKKAS IN BK FUKS WITH EM. HE AINT THE BEST BUT HE IS UP THERE. TALK SHIT IN THE BROOK WE WILL BREAK YA JAW SON>!
YES. 5/5. KANYE DOIN A MILLI LIKE YAYLOR SWIFT
Raekwon the most Underated MC Ever.
shut the fuck up crack head!
Anyone know where that guitar riff is sampled from?
ppl complaining that the song was leaked calm down. just dont listen to it like me. I mean if nobody listened to it hackers wouldnt bother going after artists like this. also... i rekn some shifty shit going down at def jam. i mean ross's album got leaked like this as well and as soon as 'ye turns in the final master two of the very few songs we hadnt heared yet pop up on the net??? atlantic seem to have their shit down, no problems there. mayb ye should change labels
..by far the coldest winter in hip hop history
Hey ya'll look out for da boy Yung Psyko " Tha Mixtape" Kansas he finna make ya'll go crazy killin' the game man
WHO THE FUCK IS KID CUDI DAT NIGGA WACK SON
NAH YALL NIGGAZ WACK CUDI SHITS ON FAGGOTZ HATERZ LIKE U
lol you ain even being a hater he is.
the first time i've ever said this ye went hard on that 2nd verse. raekwon did his thing also.
Kanye Killed this track! Hottest in the game right now Bar none!!
raekwon killed this shit no doubt
It's always somethin goin on but check me out on youtube THE GUITAR PLAYER FOR THIS DAY AND AGE. MANY ARTISTS USING LIVE BANDS NOW SO CHECK ME OUT ON YOUTUBE BRYANTC1000. CAN PLAY ON ANY BEAT OR FOR ANY ARTIST.
DC MARYALND VIRGINIA ALL DAY!! I wanna be seen and heard by the right ppl ALL AROUND and get some work in,collab, tour ect.
Get @ me firstname.lastname@example.org
what sample is this?!?!? drivin me testicals
Throw Eminem on this, then 5
please, no em, this song is perfect with kanye and rae. em's annoying voice would ruin this song.
honestly, i cant see Em riding this beat..
if eminem got on this it would be 10 out of 5 stars.
whats a black beattle anyways?....a fucking roach!!
i swear raekwon was actually fuckin good in this? his verse was sick man. why isn't anybody shoutin out to him on these comments? am i missin something?
yeah exactly my man, he's sick. i thought he was mad on this and so i can't see why nobody on the comments below isn't praising him for it
yeah, you are missin somethin,raekwon has been ill for years buddy
This is a future classic, as is his album
This makes me want a Kanye/Ghostface joint.
What up yall, this is D Rado, a rap artist from Fresno, CA, check out my music @ listn.to/drado, post a comment and let me know what you think, thanks. Or check me out @ myspace.com/drado7
Kanye' is sicc wit it!
this woud have been hot if i havent' heard kanye verse in the so called freestyle LOL damn YE!
thats exactly what im sayin my dude
i dont even know which verse is recycled
this one or the freestyle...
kanye and cudi are tooo dopee
Nice i like this...
Ye's made his way into my top 10, of all time
Recovery just lost the grammys
good it was over-rated
you might be right about that homie.
Sooo..the last track that hasn't been released on Dx is that joint he has with John legend.
expect to hear that next week i guess..
buy the album anyways. track is fire tho!
fire, like always
Dope Cudi killed the fucking hook and Ye was on point. 5 stars
ye and cudi best artists alive right now
your an idiot
this fool is a straight poser
recycling flows allday
it sounds like kanye got on power and runaway then just got someone else to perform his songs no other reason why every track besides the first 2 singles use that distorted voice
I thought the little white boy was suppose to be on this.
These were the same lyrics Kanye 'freestyled' at Funkmaster Flex's radio feature on Tuesday this week. Still hot though. One of the best rappers. Top 5.
top 5 at rapping? You must only listen to 6 rappers then.
did u JUST realize that most of these artist dont ACTUALLY freestyle when on the radio?
FIRE... BUT STOP FUCKING LEAKING THE ALBUM HIPHOPDX
you dont gotta fuckin listen to it dumbass
if they didnt leak music this website would not exist.
another f_ckin leak! love this and love the music, but annoying id be buying an album i already have in my itunes. mastered or not
ahhh im waiting till the actual album version is out. The movie version sounded awesome though.
Not listening. One star for HipHopDx. Stop leaking the album.
This is simply Hip Hop perfection. This sounds like a RZA beat with a Ye mix. But the mcs destroyed this dope beat and Cudi's chorus works very well. I can't see anyone song being better than this on the album. I've been saying that Kanye is an underrated lyricist because of all the drama and antics. He's modelled his style after Nas mixed with Andree 3K, Em, Jay, Rae, RZA.
Ye's a good writer for sure.
FIRE!!!!! When are people gonna respect Ye as one of the best lyrically?
He's taking over!
Sick song but for real stop leaking his music. I want the album to be mostly shit I havent heard before or else I wont buy it and support real hip hop. hopefully more lyrical shit like this on the album
shit hot he went in man hip hop gonna kill 11/22
The hook is f*cken amazing, and kanye and rae killed it
lupe fiasco is the goat
Not even listening to it, stop leaking this niggas album
"My Nigga Got Caught With 30 Rocks The Cop Looked Like Alec Baldwin" Damnn Yeezy On Another Planet 5 Stars Hands Down
KANYE IS THE BEST RAPPER DEAD OR ALIVE.
this is kanyes best lyrical performance and the song is crazy...as a whole
So far it seems like Dark and Twisted Fantasy is going to be every hip hop head's wet dream!hahaha G.O.O.D. MUSIC BIIIIITCH!!!!
Chef is single-handedly kept the Wu name alive by popping dang near everywhere on the collabs. Great track
doesn't sound finished therefore I can't give it a 5. Think the beat could be better, all lyrics are tight, I like it.
forgot to rate 5* all day.
this song is sooo hot, kanye comes with the lyrical game on this song. maybe some harder drums cud make this song go from 100% to 110%. raekwon is hot too.
@Sharksbreath HAHAHA, looking like prince
Take a look at your favorite rapper.
OFF THE HOOK!
the lyrics were fire!!! needed Nas instead of the chef!
How about Nas and Chef, or Nas instaed of Kudi.
that's blasphemy speaking about the Chef like that, man
This is tight, if a little boring. The beat's nice & relaxing; just needs some good drums on it to bring it out. Kanye comes correct, goin' back to them College Dropout days. The Chef always cooks up some fire!
G.O.O.D. Music is on fire! Kanye's album will be the best of the year in any genre. Grammy's better recognize that shit.
my god this is the only nigga after i bootleg all his shit i go and buy the album just outa respect for a 100% real version
He didnt say none of it would be on his album. he said the finished versions on the album will a lot better which i believe. plus yeezy already released the actually tracklist.
@vanno yeah man i feel you. i got mad respect for kanye and i will buy his album even if i bootlegged some shit
bootleg all you want... kanye said none of this will be on his album
DISGUSTING, 5 stars
god damn this shit is boring...straight trash
Look at every other comment on this page and see if you make any sense at all...Go head and try reevaluating your opinion
Kanye back to his best... well maybe not that college dropout shit but he's still dropping some dope music. Cudi's new album is very good. And as for the chef, he always cookin up some fire!
word. this is sick
whew! fire. dark twisted fantasy is gonna be so dope
