First of all, since day one Kanye has taken some dope ass samples from random places. But, he was not the first one to do that. But today, I finally gave in and listened to Bon Iver. Now, there is always some chance I would have come across this sooner or later, but thanks to Kanye Bon Iver was thrust to my attention. Listening to this CD tonight has been one of the best musical experiences I have had in my life. Kanye is able to take this indie-acoustic sound and combine it with hip hop. Not many artists can do this so successfully. So, if you haven't gotten a chance yet, go download For Emma: Forever Ago and put on your headphones and vibe out for the hour or so. You will not be disappointed. Thanks, Ye.
