Best Songs From Kanye West's The Late RegistrationBest songs from the Late Registration album by Kanye West.
The Top Ten
Powerful track. If it's the bonus version we're talking about then let's also mention the second verse where he just snaps and goes in.
The kanye bonus track is better, but still good
The piano is beautiful and the song is bright
Just a beautiful track
Beautiful, conscious track
Gold Digger 10th place really? Am I the only who thinks this should be in the top three at least? I mean it is known as one of his greatest singles of all time - mike10green
He tributed a song to his mother before he even lost her, that’s how much he knew he loved her.. beautiful song
Kanye probably had a vision for this track with his verse and then Paul Wall and GLC just went 'aight time to stunt'
"I'm ahead of my time, sometimes years out"
And often times, he is.
Kanye's second verse. Need I say more?
"How we stop the Black Panthers?
Ronald Reagan cooked up an answer.
You hear that? What Gil Scott was hearin
Right when our heroes and heroines got hooked on heroin
Crack raised the murder rate in DC and Maryland,
We invested in that, it's like we got Merrill Lynched
And we've been hanging from that same tree ever since
Sometimes I feel that music is the only medicine"
The rhythm is sick and the lyrics are very well-written
Really good sick with a meaning behind it, underrated
The best track by miles.
Genius way of chopping Etta James' vocals and the guitar intro to her cover of My Funny Valentine.
A great example track to show people who insult Kanye's abilities as a producer by saying he just loops things.
The horns are not a sample. That's an original melody. Nobody was doing this kind of stuff in hip-hop before. It's grand and orchestral.
More people need to listen to this track but because it's only a bonus track on international versions not many probably know about this 10/10 gem.
Guest verses from Talib Kweli, Q-Tip, Common, and Rhymefest? Yes please!
Underrated as hell
