#KanyeWest x #MTV My Life & Rhymes circa #2005 .....
At this time Kanye is becoming the lead MC in the game or co-lead (cant forget jigga). In this tv special Kanye runs thru some tracks from his short catalog at the moment. Then he shows the crowd how much hip hop played a integral part in his life growing up. Like right here when he zones out in his headphones listening to his walkman after school on the bus. I know for me i had my walkman on full blast after school on the bus rockin out. In HS i was one of the last ones to get off the bus just based on the route the driver takes so trust me that gives more than enough time to blaze thru a couple jamz on my tape!! Great memories and Kanye hit it right on the nose. The curious thing tho is i bet half of those people in the audience have no idea what that song is that Kanye plays, but since they on camera they gon dance and act like they know 🤣🤣🤣🤣!! Cant fool me tho!!! Oh and good luck trying to find this.
This as an analysis of The College Dropout by Kanye West, and one of my top 3 favorite hip hop albums ever:
As Ye himself said about the name of this record, "The name of my album is...The College Dropout. All that's saying is make your own decisions. Don't let society tell you what to do." Kanye clearly followed his own advice, as in a genre dominated by lyrics about violence, thug life, crime, money, and sex, Kanye's fresh perspectives regarding society were a breath of fresh air. Ye raps about the pitfalls of consumerism, a broken education system, a lack of morality and faith, obsession with physical appearance, and his car accident. On We Don't Care, Kanye wrote "a song for the kids" about drug dealing. The line on this song that always stands out to me is "DCFS, some of them dyslexic. Their favorite 50 Cent song 12 questions." All Falls Down is a scathing indictment on society's greed and the lack of morality that comes along with this unhealthy ambition. Kanye has never attacked consumerism so viciously. As Ye says, "The people highest up got the lowest self-esteem. The prettiest people do the ugliest things, for the road to riches and diamond rings." On Jesus Walks, Ye criticized a lack of morality that he has witnessed both in the hood and as a star, as he talks about Jesus's value to him. Never Let Me Down follows a similar theme, with J. Ivy spitting an insanely poetic verse. The New Workout Plan is a catchy song which pokes fun at women trying to work out and get a hot body so that they can "pull a rapper, an NBA player, man, at least a dude with a car." The School Spirit skits and Lil Jimmy are powerful bits which describe the education system as useless and not really beneficial in a society controlled by connections and corruption. Two Words is about the hood, violence, racism, and the struggle to attain success from that position. On the classic Through The Wire, Ye describes his accident which resulted in his jaw being wired shut and threatened to end his career before it could really begin.

❎ Favorite Kanye West Song - #8 : Bound 2 ‼️SPECIAL EDITION‼️.
Finally a song off “Yeezus” right? The last track off Kanye’s album “Yeezus”, Bound 2 honestly doesn’t feel like it belongs in this epic soundtrack. During the “YEEZUS” era, Kanye was fighting not on the topic of music, but about his version of “Classism”: the idea that expensive Brands and clothes segregates and gives rise to prejudice in today’s society. Throughout Yeezus, Kanye is battling these “classism” adversaries in order to get his vision out, all while trying to find himself in a world where people see him both as a God AND a “jackass”.
“@MusicPoser stfu! stop Analyzing Yeezus! This post is about Bound 2!” That’s where I’m heading!😧😞. After the masterpiece of MBDTF, everyone thought Kanye was going to deliver another gem. But nope. Kanye did a 180 with Yeezus. Theres no “soul” or “MBDTF” sound to be found here (Not saying the songs on Yeezus are trash, it’s just that it undoubtedly takes several listens for one to appreciate how crazy good it is). Except one track, the last track: Bound 2. Kanye admitted that he purposely placed it as the last song. Why? Ye knew “Yeezus” was going to get hated on for the most part, that his fans would be like “WTF” upon hearing it. That’s why “Bound 2” is the last song. He wanted to let his fans/people know that, even though he’s getting attacked by the media and getting shunned by powerful fashion leaders, he still got it. He’s still the genius artist that he “fantasized bout back in Chicago”. Musically AND artistically.
‼️In conclusion: Kanye made us sit through the entirety of “Yeezus” in order for us to hear and understand his desperate cries for help. And at the end of the epic journey, what awaits us is an “Old Kanye” catchy love song dedicated to Kim: #Bound2 . Remember, “He gives us what we need. It may not be what we want”. 🐐
❎ What are your thoughts on this song? Where would you rank it?🤔 good post?
