Kanye Invites Young Jeezy To His Pity Party

Nov 11th, 2008 // 4 Comments

ARTIST: Kanye West ft. Young Jeezy
TITLE: “Amazin’”
WEB DEBUT: Nov. 11, 2008

ONE-LISTEN VERDICT: “Amazin’” is another downtempo, Autotuned-to-next-week song from Kanye West, although this time out West is lyrically defiant, talking about how he feels while in the afterglow of a show and how no one can take the joy of holding a crowd in the palm of his hand away from him. The endless loop–which is marked by a few guttural barks, choirs of angels, and some otherworldly screeches here and there–breaks just before Young Jeezy comes in to drop a verse that’s as much about boasting as it is about his blood pressure, and he sounds so fierce, one might think that Kanye brought him in specifically to channel his more aggro, less mediated-by-studio-trickery side.

WHERE TO HEAR IT: StreetCred.com has a stream:

    First impression: nowhere near as good as either the Jeezy/Kanye song on The Recession or the song called “Amazin’” on The Recession.

  2. Christopher R. Weingarten

    My least favorite of the 808s tracks so far, but still not bad.

    (And the streak of tracks I want to disco-ize continues unbroken, though this one’s a little on the slow side.)

  4. Al Shipley

    That’s what, half of the album now that’s leaked now? And it all sucks, pretty much.
