It’s rare to be truly surprised with music today. We live in an era of leaks, where you will have heard at least half of an album online before it’s released/appears on The Pirate Bay. This was a punch in the back of head.
After Lupe declared Child Rebel Soldier – the supergroup of Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell – dead, I never expected to hear a new song from them. Look what turned up on GOOD Friday – Kanye’s spoiling us.
BONUS: “Us Placers”, the very first CRS song, sampling Thom Yorke’s phenomenal “The Eraser”
