Now that Drake mania’s fizzled out, Kanye West’s taken over as the rapper most likely to make the internet explode every time he releases a new song. With hip-hop nation still buzzing about his lead single Power (Power remix with Jay-Z dropping Friday, by the way), Yeezy jumped on the radio with Angie Martinez this afternoon and premiered See Me Now, a complexly produced record that didn’t make the cut for his forthcoming, incredibly anticipated “not titled Good Ass Job, maybe titled Dark Twisted Fantasy” album. Did I mention it’s complexly produced? In addition to Ye himself, mentor No I.D. and Lex Luger also put in work to craft the bouncing, vocal-sample heavy beat. Three producers? Why not two singers? Beyoncé handles the bridge and Uncle Charlie Wilson laces the hook, setting a smooth stage for Kanye to drop swag rhyme after swag rhyme. On a purely lyrical level it’s not the man’s best work – is there even one truly memorable line? - but even his throwaway joints should set off an avalanche of discussion in three…two…one…
