Maybe You Could Be My Intern, And In Turn I'll Show You How I Cook Up Summer In The Win-turr.
Ok kids; pop quiz time: What do we know about Kanye West? For starters he's got a big mouth. A really big mouth. Large enough for him to insert his entire foot in. What else? He's got talent. Loads of it. He can write, produce, and arrange hits. Billboard will back me up. He also has a knack for surrounding himself with sickeningly talented individuals. Jay-Z. Jon Brion. Yes, that Jon Brion. Fiona Apple's Jon Brion. Co-producing Late Regristration alongside West, Brion brings his quirky touch to the album with strings, flugle horns, and touches of brass without overshadowing the beats. While West isn't entirely original with his rhymes, most times the music is enough to carry him through the song. For your listening (dis)pleasure, my four favorite tracks off of Late Regristration:
Kanye West: Heard `Em Say
Kanye West: Drive Slow
Kanye West: Addiction
Kanye West: Gone
