  • Producer: Pharrell Williams
  • Album: Untitled (Out in 2008)

Rap heavyweights Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, and Pharrell have united to form CRS (short for Child Rebel Soldiers), a hip hop super group. Their first effort under this name is Us Placers, which can be found on Kanye's new mixtape, Can't Tell Me Nothing. Although the concept is interesting, the delivery falls a bit flat with its repetitive piano track. Still, this trio is made up of such strong performers, that we are likely to see a lot of noteworthy tracks from CRS in the near future.
