No emo bullshit here. This is created for my rhetoric class, which is good because it gives me incentive to back my shit up after talking all kinds of trash about teenage asian girls' xangas. This will most likely not be any better. Probably worse.

hands in the sky.
Seeing as how 'Ye threw yet another rampage over meaningless awards, this new video for The Good Life drops at the right time. I, along with Big Lo, picked up Graduation today like many others according to the cashier girl at Target. As much as I download music I felt like Kanye West is one of the few artists on a major scale that give a shit and thus worth supporting. His tantrums and bitch-fits and egomania might annoy many, but to me, they show that he cares about his craft. Comparing him to 50 Cent is ridiculous as they're completely different people with different goals and priorities.
The Good Life is my favorite song on Graduation for many reasons. The obvious being the wall of synths, MJ sample and of course the ubiquitous T-Pain. But the subject matter is one of the few songs on the album that actually translates to what 'Ye has been hyping up as 'stadium status' material. The rush of joy that overwhelms this song is guaranteed to lift any deflated spirits and get heads bobbin'.
As far as the video, So Me did the art. He also did Justice's D.A.N.C.E. vid, which really should have won video of the year. I like the look, especially when Pain and 'Ye are dancing horribly out of sync.
And of course, the model.
Congratulations Kanye West: on finding the hottest video girl ever and more importantly, for giving a shit.
