i heard it was going to be available on itunes today so ive been waiting all day for a link on bolaughingen or nahright but there isn't one yet...i'll have my final judgement when i hear the studio version..first sound seemed cool though.

i thought it was super dope, the song has a lot to do with his recent breakup with his girlfriend i'm guessing, can't wait for the studio version....i too will be mad if he uses the autotune on a lot of his album, but i don't think he will. kanye's music is always progressing (Graduation is so much different from College Dropout) so i'm looking forward to what he has in store for us.

well spazz was so much better live..so not always true..


Very true. But something like that happens every blue moon for me so..... what are ya going to do.

After listening to it a few times, I like it more... Pretty Catchy

I think Kanye is kinda trying to get out of straight rapping, I know he likes alot of indie/rock so maybe he's trying to lean more that way??

I was thinking the same thing I dont see him not rapping at all on th album but def a more indie rock type of thing. I think thats why he's releasin it so quick he's probably inspired by all of the new artist's.

but what about it supposedly releasing today and ive yet to see anything...
September 08, 2008 @ 20:15:46
Where the fuck is this song, supposed to be released today. Anyway this track is amazing
September 08, 2008 @ 20:44:08
Still waiting on the studio version..Hopefully it's dope. I've been bumping this live version alll dayy.

Came across this today as well..A snippet of him at rehearsal for his performance..(Not using the autotune effect)

in my eyes, it seems as if he tried to hard to impress the public...and he won....everyone loves him for stronger and flasings lights, and good life and what he did with weezie, but its like, whats about his other shit thats not this new shit.

im not a big kanye fan also, i download the originals he samples, and i just cant see how people call him a great producer
September 08, 2008 @ 21:55:23
not sure....
September 08, 2008 @ 21:58:02
I think he did a good job wit Graduation, it took me a while to like alot of the songs, but now i love them all

I listened to the songs he sampled from too... i just hope for his 4th album he doesn't abuse autotune and not too much singing

I don't think he's a creative producer by any means, but I think he makes good music.
September 08, 2008 @ 22:21:54
I think he did well with Graduation but it lacked alot of content, like most of Graduation was just bragging if you think about it..

That's part of his persona. He's the most arrogant m'fer out there, but that swagger of his is what gets a lot of people, I'd argue.

yea yea. its def. dope. not his best works though.

this guy is just a genious when it comes to making music that sells.

i on the other hand respect music with a purpose more....
September 09, 2008 @ 04:08:55


and still waiting for the studio version
September 09, 2008 @ 04:22:33

September 09, 2008 @ 09:25:30
Performance was big, the songs growing on me, all of his albums are dope in there own way...but if i don't like it i don't give a fuck who it is, wack is wack.

I've been a bif critic of all of the Kanye pole jockying on this site for years now. But I ahve to say this shit is dope...very much of the clean dance pop 80s revival electronic shit vibe. Taking it in a new direction. Im feeling the mood of this....hes also gotten darker as an artist...im ready to hear more.
September 09, 2008 @ 17:47:25
Album name & release date
808's & Heartbreak apparently drops on 16th December.
September 09, 2008 @ 18:15:11
That's the new title now?
September 09, 2008 @ 18:23:54
It looks like it's no longer Good Ass Job, and is now 808's & Heartbreak

I guess he is steering away from the whole school theme

Im glad he left that school themed shit alone. 3 is enough...and I knew he was taking a darker direction by putting "heartbreak" in the title.
September 09, 2008 @ 18:33:53
This shit is shaping up to be epic.

808's and Heartbreaks
