Kanye West - Devil in a New Dress

Producer:
B!nk
Album:
Unreleased

True to his word, enigmatic and temperamental hip-hop genius Kanye West dropped yet another new record on G.O.O.D. (see previous effort Monster), this time in the form of the smoky Devil in a New Dress. Ironically, although Devil was produced by B!nk, it’s the most old school Kanye sounding song we’ve heard in a minute; gone are 808s & Heartbreak’s pop leanings, as are Power’s eclectic roots. Instead, we get a heavily soul sampled beat that Yeezy laces with rhymes about – what else? – a relationship destroyed by a sexy gold-digging female’s desire for, well, Kanye’s gold: “The way you look should be a sin / I’m preaching to the congregation / We love Jesus, but she done learned a lot from Satan.” Dope, often hilarious rhymes? A dope beat? Yep, that’s the Ye I know and love. Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed, my best guess is that Devil will appear on his upcoming album, whose title, despite all the Dark Twisted Fantasy reports, also hasn’t been officially confirmed. But in a recent UStream session, Kanye said the album will drop in November, so at least we’ve got that.
