Midweek Music Break: Kanye West – All Falls Down

While I’m not a fan of Kanye West the person (egotistical and paranoid makes for a weird combination), but I’ll admit that he does bring a good hit to the forefront every now and then.

One of my favorites, which has been popping up on my randomized playlists a lot lately, is 2003’s All Falls Down:

It’s a combination of a great beat, great hook and strong rapping, which has managed to defy aging for the most part (not a feat much accomplished in the genre).  While it’s a song about money and race, it’s done in a way that doesn’t slap you in the face, but still makes you think.

So, while I could do with a little less Kanye on my TV and internet, I’ll keep spinning this tune and enjoying the time so long ago when his musical career peaked.
