I actually like the skits on this one as well.

Listening to this album straight through for the first time in a long time. Great, great stuff.

Could be tough to narrow it down to 5. I know for sure that the original Diamonds will be one of my votes, though. And Touch The Sky probably.

Like I said, I'll probably just merge the two and include in the finals whichever version has the most votes. Definitely wouldn't screw a classic like Diamonds on a technicality.

Roses is a really well-written song. Bitch, is you smokin reefer? But I probably won't vote for it.

You guys should listen to that shit again. Classic stuff.

EDIT: Just listened to both. Wow. The original version shits on the remix.
I agree with GAF. I'll be voting for the original as well.

I probably like 10 tracks more than ether version of Diamonds.


We Major
Gone
Heard 'em Say
Touch The Sky
Crack Music

Tough call on the last spot, with Drive Slow and My Way Home very close.

1. O.G. Diamonds
2. Touch The Sky
3. Heard 'Em Say
4. Drive Slow (Verses are fucking great)
5. Celebration (So many awesome memories that go along with this one. Reckless youth, white kids downtown, drinking cheap liquor and smoking weed to new Kanye West songs.)

Almost gave a spot to Gone purely for the "flip sides like Anakin" lyric.

And there were a handful of others that were pretty damn close.

Celebration > Gold Digger? I can get behind that.

I'm mystified that Gone could fail to make anyone's cut. Brion's strings??

And that last verse is amazing.

Almost as good as the reprise of We Major when the horns come blaring in.

Touch the Sky
Heard Em Say (remember when Adam Levine wasn't a massive douche? )
Diamonds Remix (original is pretty damn good too though, you're right GAF)
We Major
Gold Digger

Close calls for My Way Home (sucks it's so short), Gone, Drive Slow and Late.

Nas' verse on We Major is pretty crappy (can he go one track without mentioning Illmatic?) but the rest is great.

Man, Addiction is getting hosed. What a sample.

Just realized I only voted for 4. Damn it.

Remember to throw one on the Drive Slow pile.
