Kanye West Gets Caught In The “Blame Game” With John Legend And Chris Rock
During his mostly uneventful UStream session, Kanye West revealed that his collaboration with John Legend and Pusha T, “Blame Game”, is his favorite song on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. What we didn’t know til now is that the somber, piano-tinkling track also features a random monologue by comedian Chris Rock. Will “Blame Game” become your favorite track off Yeezy’s latest, too? Listen below.

The low-key track, focusing on a painful domestic dispute between a couple, has an “Airplanes” feel to it. West splits his personality (which appears to be a common theme in this album) in the song by switching between his normal voice and a deep, distorted bass. (Or is that a demonic Pusha T sharing a dialogue with Kanye?)
The song is pretty epic — it clocks in at nearly eight minutes long. Personally, we’d kill the last two minutes with Rock’s unfocused, not-as-funny-as-we-think-it’s-supposed-to-be rambling, but otherwise, this is quite a beautiful track.
