Scratched Into Our Souls

Kanye West – “Mama’s Boyfriend” “Lost In The World” and “Chain Heavy” A Cappella | July 28, 2010

So, the internet is abuzz with news about Kanye West’s impromptu a cappella performance of songs from his upcoming fifth album at Facebook headquarters, videos of which are circulating the internet about as fast as news can spread. One thing is certain from these low-quality videos: Ye’s signature flow, humor, and heart are all here. He’s fired up and inspired. And when Kanye West is inspired, he’s damn near unstoppable. “Chain Heavy” is gonna be a beast of a song without a doubt, and “Mama’s Boyfriend” is an angry self-portrait documenting Kanye’s own upbringing with his mother, with a sobering final couplet that will give you shivers. Listen below.

And yes, I do plan on stalking Kanye’s twitter all day in hopes of hearing news about the new album, with a tentative and rumored release date of September 14. And, thankfully, the album will no longer be titled Good Ass Job.

Write my vote down for Universe City.
