I'm guessing a lot of you youngins didn't catch the meaning of the first few bars and didn't understand why that line sounds distorted. It's not a mastering error and it's done on purpose.

It's supposed to sound like they sampled the line from "All I Need" from The Blueprint (2001) but I guess they just added distortion to it to give it that "old" effect since it wasn't actually sampled from the track.

PROOF: "I guess I got my swagger back". TRUTH.

I got that on first listen. I was surprised so many here were being noobs. I guess that shows who really listens to Jay's lyrics and who just skimmed through it...

yeah I've seen a few people complaining about the distortion / "mastering".

No offence but like half of the kids here (including me) have very little idea of what well mastered music sounds like.

lol well I can see how some might think the distortion was a "mastering error" but obviously it was on purpose.

any beat produced by Dr. Dre has CRAZY clarity and engineering. Chronic 2001 and a lot of Dre produced tracks from 50 during the original G-Unit/Aftermath era are great. Kush sounds amazing too. It's no wonder his headphones are the best in the game too.

im only 22 but over the last week ive sadly learned most ppl here are from 15 - 20
lol I learned that a long time ago, which is why I don't post too much because a lot of what goes on in here is child's play. but it's good to see that the sophistication of Kanye's music actually resonates with young kids.
