Kanye West - "The Joy"

Another G.O.O.D. Fridays track from Mr. West, a man who you could say is overexposed, if you were a dick. This one features Jay-Z and Kid Cudi, some vocals from Charlie Wilson, and a samples of Curtis Mayfield’s velvety “The Makings Of You,” compliments of producer Pete Rock.

There’s another sample at work, and that’s a slowed down clip of the introductory “uhh”s from Syl Johnson’s “Different Strokes,”¬† an audio snippet lodged in my head from growing up listening to too much of Public Enemy’s “Fear Of A Black Planet” (sample hits at 0:55). The internet’s given that sample less play, but has rightly scoped out something else about “The Joy,” and that’s that Jay-Z back in fighting shape herein.
