New Kanye

Otis feat. Otis Redding by watchthethrone

I admit it: I love Kanye West more than a swag-less orchestra dork should. I don’t know what it is. Kanye’s always been in my musical periphery, but it wasn’t until his album, 808s & Heartbreaks, that I really ever paused to appreciate his fast and loose flow and his amazing production abilities. The man is a genius and I love him. I love him more than a whole plate of fish sticks in my mouth.

Anyway, here’s his first single, "Otis", from his upcoming collaborative album with Jay-Z: Watch the Throne. I like it; it’s smooth, it’s “summuh”, and it makes me want to throw on a pair of aviators and start sliding and jiving across the floor like the smooth villain from Charlie’s Angels.
