Kanye West "Lost in the World" (ft. Bon Iver)
Published Sep 29, 2010It's kind of hard to keep up with Kanye West these days since the dude is just so damned busy. Between his G.O.O.D. Friday leaks and the upcoming Jay Z-assisted Watch the Throne EP, it's easy to forget that the prolific producer/mc will be dropping his new full length, potentially titled Dark Twisted Fantasy, in November. That's, like, two months away! Fortunately, in the spirit of his recent leaks, we can get a sneak peak of the record's first single, the Bon Iver collaboration "Lost in the World," right now.
Though it gently begins by sampling Iver main man Justin Vernon's tenderly Auto-Tuned croon from his "Woods" track, the busy cut eventually pits fist-pumping Balearic beats with some airy, minimalist synth swells, a choir of World Cup-inspired whoas and some Gil-Scott Heron sound clips. Oh, and Yeezy spits his familiar draw, referencing Michael Jackson whilst talking about busting from some pitiful party to go get laid. Incredible.
