New Music: Kanye West – Robocop

by Winston "Stone" Ford

Kanye WestRobocop

So a blogger who was lucky enough to go to Kanye’s weird ass listening party said that Robocop was one of the best songs off of 808 and Heartbreaks album. After finally hearing the leaked song, all I gotta say is…really?

Not saying that the song is bad, but I get the sense that Kanye is overdoing it. I understand that 808 is not going to be the mainstream rap album that his fans want, and I’m actually glad that it won’t be. But something about this song just makes it seems that the dude is trying too hard. Maybe its the off kilter beats? Or maybe it’s the fact that there’s too much damn autotune for my fragile ears? Who knows.

What do y’all think?
