Listening Station: Kanye West Has “Young Folks” On The Brain, Too

May 29th, 2007 // 8 Comments

snipshot_e414t3g2exbs.jpgKanye West’s latest mix tape, Can’t Tell Me Nothing (twisted-neon cover at left), hit the Internet over the weekend, and among the 25 tracks are a snippet of “Stronger,” his collaboration with Daft Punk, and two tracks that sample the whistling Swedes Peter, Bjorn & John. In “Young Folks” and “Interviews,” Kanye takes the time to call for artist approval of non-Q & A cover stories, talk about how he’s been whacked out of his mind on the drug called “fame,” and–perhaps unsurprisingly–reference the tagline of MTV’s possibly late, definitely unlamented Diary:

    This is ridiculous. That said, I listened to every second of these tracks and wasn’t angry when I was done. In fact most of his Interviews ramblings was interesting compared to stuff he’s said in actual interviews. And since when do we hold white rockers to certain standards? People are still waiting for Axl Rose to release Chinese Democracy like it’s going to be the second coming of Christ.
