Scott, imma let you finish, but this is one of the best videos of all time.
In all seriousness, Kanye West might be a gigantic jackass, but he makes some catchy, compelling music. This song is really sparse musically - a little horn, mostly heavy bass and drum - but combines the hip-hop rap style of Kanye with the soulfulness of Jamie Foxx's voice. It's a nearly perfect song.
Kanye has a tendency to make perfect songs. This one, a tribute to his bravado, is far less sparse, and still, despite the fact that he's a complete jackass lyrically, is brilliantly catchy. Lyrically, it's cocky, but any song that can make an Apollonia reference is OK with me.
