Wake Up, Mr. West

Uh... Kanye? I'm all for artists trying something new with their sound, but when the songs aren't going anywhere, that's a problem. Thus is the dilemma with "Love Lockdown", the newest single from self-proclaimed best MC on the planet and now not much of an MC at all Kanye West. With a repetitive drum loop and beyond awkward keyboard, it's a track that sounds like it would fit in better with some of the lesser songs on Hail To The Thief, rather than The College Dropout.

Sure, it could be that he's trying to share his soul with us following the passing of his mother, but that would be a lot more convincing without that shitty T-Pain vocal effect.

Maybe he should consider going for his Masters before continuing down this road, cause he's seriously in danger of SBT passing him.
