Man, I was so excited to see that this track was finally up. Although I wasn’t very into Keys’ “The Death of Adam” mixtape that dropped a couple months ago, I loved the snippet of this track that showed up on Kanye’s “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” mixtape last year (cop that immediately if you didn’t get it when it came out last year. It’s amazing. I still listen to it all the time.)

But it turns out that the snippet on “Can’t Tell Me Nothing – The Official Mixtape” was better. The intro really drags without Kanye talking over it like he does on the mixtape. Plus, the beat is really hot for a minute, but in a three-minute song it gets kind of old pretty fast. And the Borat reference was much fresher a year and a half ago. Plus I kind of miss Malik Yusef doing spoken word over the end of the track, now that it’s not there.

So really, the moral of this post is: if you somehow missed the “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” mixtape, get it right now.
