  5. “Produced by me/ track by madlib” Sooo Kanye didn’t actually do anything except force his name on it? Faggot, don’t ever try to take credit for Madlib’s masterpieces

  8. @Evan Brill I’m pretty sure the first four minutes is produced by Kanye (Real Friends), then the last minute (No More Parties in LA) is produced by Madlib.

  9. Ye did the intro, madlib did the beat. I don’t think it matters. You want to shit on good music?
    I’ll take this, don’t give a shit who produced what and who pushed the mpc buttons, good artist working together. Finally some new good stuff from people we had would work together.

  17. Kanye wrote “Intro produced by me, track by Madlib”… Don’t hate, just appreciate! It’s great to see Madlib working with Ye and KDot. Hope it continues. The world needs a Beat Konducta revolution!

  18. technically madlib just did the beat, Ye produced the track. Madlib wasn’t in the studio. having said that i can’t tell u if i was feeling Kanye’s raps cause i still can’t sit thru an entire Kendrick verse. his voice makes me want 2 vomit & not in a good way.

    lot of opinions on both sides tho, when will Madlib meet the Kardashians???

  19. some of you guys are mad sour.. Expecting things from artists, It’s up to them what they wanna do with their music. Underground hip hop fans are the biggest cry babies ever. “awwww now everyone is gonna know who MADLIB IS 🙁 I CAN’T BE UNIQUE ANYMORE” This is what we need if it ever runs on the airwaves. It’s up to Mainstream artists to switch up the style and people got no choice but listen to GOOD MUSIC! if you hate it so much contribute and make good music then.

  20. Wow it amazes me how disrespectful people are to come on Rappcats and diss the bad kid. Has madlib sold out or compromised his style on this song? I think not!!! Good to see a Hip Hop artist who has never been afraid to push boundaries get major label placements and still do him. Hats off to Madlib

  21. Respect to Madlib for this one! I might not be a huge fan of Kanye or Kendrick, but damn that beat!! You Have to respect Madlib for being so consistent while maintaining his original style. If this is played on the airwaves then more props to him! Don’t hate what you cant create my peeps! Props to Madlib and no matter what, he is one of the illest to ever do it! Respect to the Beat Konducta!

  24. haters gon hate. Ye for president. Lord Quas VP.

  25. True, true gotta say I would of rather heard lootpack featuring Ghostface in this beat instead.that shht would of killed the airwaves. Ya this Kendrick duudes rap accent flow sucks. You could tell he’s trying but I wouldn’t have approved it on the final decision. I’m not use to it. Does anyone have killarmy’s contact !? How about those Kats next time at least.

  26. madlib — as someone said earlier, i think this track shows how steadfast & righteous the beat konducta really is; he has collaborated with some mainstream peoples (not to mention controlling) yet mr. jackson has managed to keep his signature style & sound. hopefully madlib can, by collaborating with popular/mainstream artists, infuse today’s shiesty-music-scene with a little blast from the past?!

    kanye — everything this dude touches turns from a sloppy, odorous shit right into a pile of gold, it’s a real shame, he doesn’t even have anything good to say, he sounds like a total racist, musical-fascist & narcissist… dude is single handedly ruining the hip-hop scene as well the culture here in america, go drink yourself back to 2004 mr. west…

    that being said, most people don’t even realize how much of the shit they hear is recycled, yet they believe it to be the original works of artists like daft punk or kanye west. madlib has a more unique & fresh approach when it comes to sampling, the more of his music that’s reaching the mainstream, the better appreciation we have for the original retro works. it also paves the way for other genius artists such as dam-funk, mayer hawthorne & other such ‘old’ souls… as bad as this track may sound, this collaboration is actually a really good stepping stone for the good guys (aka the actually talented artists) & an even bigger positive-step for the music industry — unique collaborations make the world go ‘round!
