Thoughts?

i don't know...i think i'm gonna have to hear the studio version before i make up my mind.
September 07, 2008 @ 23:25:45
Honestly i thought Kanye was gonna just break out and start rapping,but i think this is dope
September 07, 2008 @ 23:27:05
i was mad at first that he had just sang an entire single away..

but then again, a rap wouldnt have really fit in
so im just waitin for the studio version to drop today
September 07, 2008 @ 23:32:26
hhhmm im not feeling it.. but ill save my final judgment for the studio version.
September 07, 2008 @ 23:39:51
i swear to god if kanye uses the fucking vocoder on his album ill be pissed. he doesnt need that shit to make a great album. college dropout = no vocoder = classic


I bet a pair of Nike SB Pigeons he does.

id be lying if i said this wasnt dope. very different but still good. i dont like vocoder but i wouldnt wanna hear Ye without it either.... lol
September 08, 2008 @ 00:07:07
Ehh...it's alright...different, but that can be good too...
September 08, 2008 @ 00:44:32
I want to hear it sounds on my system so that CDQ needs to leak asap. I hope it doesn't disappoint.
September 08, 2008 @ 01:12:18
sounds pretty dope
i guess we'll just have wait till'
the studio version comes out.
September 08, 2008 @ 01:28:58
i was so hyped for the performance but i thought it was really weak, i dont have a problem with the vocoder or autotoner thing though, but the song was really weak imo

Edit: I relistened to the song and was feelin it a lol more,

Weezy was ill tonight
September 08, 2008 @ 02:00:21
i liked it.....cant wait for the single to drop...

September 08, 2008 @ 02:14:16

The performance sucked but the song is dope. After going to a couple of kanye shows it seems like he does fine when he's rapping but when singing he has no idea what he's doing but maybe it was to add to the effect of the song i dont know i thought i could have been better tho.He reminded me of Robert Palmer.Lol

Same. If I hear a new song live first, I'll never like it. I always wait for the studio recorded version to come out, then I just bump the shit until I grow into it. If it doesn't work for me then it doesn't. But I saw it on the VMA's last night, and frankly I didn't have a problem listening to this song. Hopefully Ye won't be contemplating a "R&B album" like Weezy is....
