Remember when all that crazy news about Justin Vernon working with Kanye broke? Remember how we didn’t know what to think? Had Vernon sold out, or was Kanye collaborating with people who could really bring his vision to fruition? Well, Yeezy released “Monster”, which was the first taste anyone got of the Vernon/West collaborations, but it was a sort of after-thought verse tagged at the end of a bloated song. Nicki Minaj had already turned in the best verse of her short career, and Vernon’s slow-burning melodicism was perhaps too much of a contrast.

Now, “Lost in the World” has leaked, and it’s a true monster. The song begins innocuously sampling Vernon’s auto-tune experiment “Woods”, but quickly, it becomes a dark, twisted dancefloor jam that samples Gil-Scott Heron and hardly even features aside from some sing-a-long and a concise but consistent verse. “Lost in the World” is easily the best track to come from Kanye’s lengthy, prodigious leak campaign to promote his latest album (wait, what is it called again?).

I’d attribute the source of the leak, but I think you can figure it out from the most annoying tags since Beggars. Someone forgot a “w”.

i guess your blog post is more important than my news post.
no but in all seriousness i love this track though i wish the collab wasn't just sampling

It isn't. Vernon does some backup vocal stuff in the middle.

i guess what i meant is i wish the song was completely original on both parts. a completely new idea from both parties. it seems like what happens is they both mash their styles to create something limping off of past ideas that being 808's and For Emma.

You are listening to a Vagrant Records advanced promotional stream.

except it leaked like three months earlier so people put up with that watermarked across the album for that whole time.

when i first picked up my physical copy i actually missed the watermarks on that album, i felt like there were lyrics missing

Lucid

I still have the version with the watermark on my computer. I think that says a lot.

wow I actually really liked that and I'm not big on Kanye. I never expected that beat to come in with that sample but it worked brilliantly.
