This came out 10 years ago? Hard to believe but time flies. This record may sound dated now and it’s hard to even register the Kanye then of the Kanye now but at the time this represented a breath of fresh air and an exciting new voice. Love him or hate him (even then) everyone listened and everyone had an opinion. These days that doesn’t happen very often which makes it an achievement in and of itself. For the record, this one still goes hard. That beat and opening line get me every time.
