With the majority of rap fans clamoring for a new “rap” album, Kanye ensures his 808s & Heartbreak breathes the air of another year and decade with the album’s (first) swan song.
Probably the most enduring feature of the track is even as a tribute song, ‘Ye didn’t try to go for the gusto with his eulogy. As Eminem had reported, creating the perfect dedication to Proof deemed to be a near impossible feat in itself; where even the best intentions can be too emotional to deal with. A remixed version of the track accompanies the visual. The Auto-Tune and shag may be gone from this point on, but the ghastly visual is a chilly reminder of the pain that remains from the loss of a matriarch.
