fam, I went on a date with this girl and she's a 10 in every way. Last week we went to the zoo and she revealed that she wasn't familiar with Ye's music. but I do know from many conversations that she loves frank, bon iver, kendrick, and nas, so i thought these songs would be a good pick for warming her up to Ye.

edit: thanks for voting n helping me pick the mix fam. i gave it to her today and she loved it, i'll post her reactions to the songs soon

White Dress is 10/10. I agree with both posters above me. Start with All Falls Down and then We Don't Care. Throw in Hey Mama.

You can't start with Lost In The World, and you need Touch The Sky.
i figured to stay away from his biggest singles, since odds are she's heard them before

why can't i start with my fav Ye song :-( what do u think a better intro might be?

Take her on a date to a place that's 4 hours a way and listen to his discography on the way there and back. Explain all the songs to her and why you love em. Just kidding please don't do this.

Oh ok those are fair calls then just chuck heard em say as an extra bc that song is beautiful. I just figured new slaves is a fairly aggressive song but anyone who can't appreciate it and especially that outro is crazy

Start with Never Let Me Down, and a couple singles can make her feel more familiar. Finish with Lost in The World or Last Call.

Finish with lost in the world rather than last call to me litw is far more powerful and beautiful

Or have Last Call right before Lost In The World. Also add Who Will Survive In America after Lost In The World, it's needed for full effect.

Depends what you want

Do you want her to love Kanye?

Or love Kanye's music?

What do you want her to feel?

Hype? Happy? Amused? Sad?
i want her to love his music ideally, i don't want a single vibe on the record.

nah man. then you're doing it wrong. you DEFINITELY want a girl that's a Ye stan

my gf and I are both self-proclaimed stans although I'm the actually really real stan between us, but whatever  :smh:

me and her can get really excited over stuff and hype each other up and have actual discussion about him as an artist and not just "Kanye West" tha superstahh (for example MSG, i don't think either of us went to class and we just chilled and got super excited which was awesome)

but the BIGGEST thing is that you probably don't want someone who just likes his music. at first she'll act like she doesn't mind talking Ye stuff
but soon enough, any mention of the word Kanye is just gonna piss her off because that's when she has gotten to the point where she thinks the only thing you know what/how to talk about. and that's just straight up aggravating  :fly:
