Kanye West - "All Falls Down" feat. Slyeena Johnson

As much as I love making fun of Kanye West (along with the rest of the country), I recognize that there was a point when he wasn't such an asshole.  Sure 808s & Heartbreak was atrocious.  Sure the man is the epitome of what all douchebags aspire to be.  Sure he's used ghostwriters in the past.  But at the end of the day, Mr. West's first two albums (before he became so full of himself) border on classic status.  (Excuse me.  Imma let you finish, but) This is one of my favorite songs of all time.  From the backing vocals to each one of Kanye's verses (which offer a commentary on the commercialization of hip hop culture), there's no way to deny this track's status as a certified hip hop classic.

Peace, Love, & Yeezy,
