    Dammit, Kanye. Quoting yourself at the beginning of your own music video.

    one of the most underrated singles in rap history. Kanye West should be
    known for this

    It think the video Is very relevant…The video it’s self shows the
    awareness of seirra Leone but what Kanye raps about is the vanity we all
    caught up and build to see where are wealth comes from the evil means used
    to get it because we all caught in vanity

    THIS is why Kanye is the greatest artist of all time.

    Why can’t he create some meaningful lyrics? This was a golden opportunity
    to become a meaningful rapper but he raps about nothing at all

  • By Aceprocta, December 18, 2014 @ 6:19 pm

    lol I think he’s saying white people was the worst thing that ever happened
    to Africa

    Iran you r a 100% right. PPL need to be more aware of the fact that a
    rapper cant just drop conscious lyrics (and am not say this is not
    conscious) about Europeans exploiting sierra leone for diamonds. He must
    use clever little hints to bring across that message and the ones he used
    were pretty clever. Before you criticize how many other rappers are trying
    to bring across conscious messages. Not a lot!! I think he deserve a round
    of applause because he could have ignored it.
    ‘You gotta love it though somebody still speaks from his soul
    And wouldn’t change by the change, or the game, or the fame,
    When he came, in the game, he made his own lane’ Kanye. One of the best
    lyrics I ever heard.

    Fact: this album “late registration” put him $ 600,000 in debt after
    clearing so many samples

    the remix is way better

  • By Steven Cruz, December 18, 2014 @ 8:41 pm

    Remember when kanye made songs like this.

  • By James Richards, December 18, 2014 @ 9:00 pm

    Most hypocritical rapper of all time.

  • By Peter M, December 18, 2014 @ 9:20 pm

    We got a sheet of paper in class today with one of Kanye’s verse’s from
    this song on it. It was in georgraphy and we’re learning about the Blood
    Diamond Mining Industry.

    It is just another cheap rap cover. He has just taken a great song, turned
    it into trash and tries to make it seem as if it contains an important
    message. Typical rap garbage. 

  • By Obbyb1, December 19, 2014 @ 1:04 am

    “When he came into the game, he his own lane” This is Kanye West in a
    nutshell. Shame I don’t like where he ended up but there is no denying he
    does what HE does and not what everyone else is doing.

    I remember getting fired by an online magazine then some know nothing
    writes an article about rappers getting out raped on their own songs.
