“In the build-up to Swish, which began life as So Help Me God before Yeezy decided to change the name (bad call in our opinion), he released ‘All Day’, ‘Facts’, Rihanna and Paul McCartney collaboration ‘FourFiveSeconds’, ‘Real Friends’ and Kendrick Lamar collaboration ‘No More Parties In LA’. Only the latter two made it onto the album.”
February 11th is the date I have circled on my calendar, well that and the beginning of June, when Kanye West is playing Governors Ball, though knowing my luck there will be a blizzard.
I like don’t love the Kendrick track and I worship the ground “Wolves” walks on, I assume Swish will be great but I wonder if it will perform great. “FML”? What is he, fifteen? Why “F” his “L” for fucks sake.
Plus, absolutely no doubt, it won’t be as great as Yeezus. But that rap on “No More Parties” is awesome, unfortunately it is Kendrick. Nah, just kidding, they are both great. The sample is fabulous as well. This is from Rolling Stone: ”
Madlib flipped Morrison’s 1976 solo cut “Suzie Thundertussy,” and cuts it with a Ghostface sample from Supreme Clientele’s “Mighty Healthy” — a song Kanye previously sampled on 2012’s “New God Flow.” (To add to the matryoshka-doll-like layers, that sample is actually Ghostface quoting 1987 Divine Force single “Holy War.”) The song’s intro comes from Johnny Guitar Watson’s 1977 record “Give Me My Love,” and the bridge comes from Larry Graham (Aubrey “Drake” Graham’s uncle) — a sample of 1980’s “Stand Up and Shout About Love.”
Swish, swish, how long they keep you in court? All day, nigga
