Whether or not you actually pay any attention to the lyrics, one has to credit Kanye with an absolute mastery of rhythm in this song. I for one think the lyrics are controversial simply because they can be, which is par for the course for Kanye West. I personally don't care for them, but I suppose it depends on your outlook. Nonetheless, I will still blast this song proudly with my windows down =)
I first heard this song in-game in Saints Row 3. Nothing like jumping out a helicopter while this song plays. I was gonna finish this review but Kanye interrupted me. He's just too powerful to argue with.
