Is a masterpiece. Seriously this the Kanye song that I can relate to the most:

I have a cousin in prison
My family throw big get-togethers for every holiday/birthday/just for the hell of it
Everyone brings home-cooked food to the get-togethers
ALL of my family used to live in poverty, now we made it
My aunts and uncles love singing karaoke and dancing
My mom and dad would often fight/argue
My grandmother has Alzheimer's disease and has a hard time remembering names

"As kids we used to laugh
Who knew that life would move this fast?"

^I'm in college and the rest of my cousins are finishing high school, this line always brings back memories of us playing Sega Genesis ALL NIGHT.

The piano, the sample, the singing, and just the overall atmosphere of this song speaks to me. Listening to this song always brings me back, and I'll admit, almost moves me to tears every single time. This song is without a doubt my favorite Kanye song.

Whenever the bridge comes in, I get teary-eyed. Such a moving record.
