West came to the station to drop off the joyous track. He opens the cut with trademark braggadocio and comic flare rapping, “I’mma need you to kill all the hypocrisy / This is an aristocracy / I’m Socrates, but my skin more chocolatey.” You can check it out on his blog. Actually, the first verse is the one he debuted two weeks ago while standing on top of a table at Facebook’s headquarters.
Speaking of the album, one that’s been clouded with mystery, West slyly let a few cats out of the bag. “They keep on telling me not to say that it’s November 16,” West said of it’s release date, before laughing about his tight-lipped Def Jam label. He also revealed that among others, legendary hip-hop producers Pete Rock and the RZA have assisted on the project. In addition, rap empress Nicki Minaj and G.O.O.D. music label mate Kid Cudi will be featured on it. And this Friday West plans to release the remix to his rebellious first single, “Power.”
What do you think of “See Me Now”? Does it make you excited for his November release? Let us know.
