    Awwwwwwww is this what you so called hip hop heads been waiting

    Does this make you feel like a true hip hop purist when you listen to this

  • Rick O Shea

    Beat seems pretty simple for being produced by Ye, not that's its bad. I really enjoy it actually.

    "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." - Leo Da Vinci (He said it in Italian though.)

    Dope beat. Lyrics to match, hopefully this finds it's way onto a project somehow!

    This song has been out for literally 5 years as "Top Middle Top." Hahaha. But I'm glad it's getting burn today now. What Geffen did to Tru3 Magic was unfortunate. It seemed like Mos had a good concept for the album until Geffen filled it with litter leaked it and submarined it.

    Amazing. Will never understand what the f*** are the record labels thinking.

    Sounds like some Hi-Tek summer-sounding beat, need this to wash out that wack track he released the other day with Mannie Fresh
