13. Consequence f/ Kanye West & Little Brother “I See Now” (2004)
Album: Take ‘Em To The Cleaners
Producer: 9th Wonder
Label: Sure Shot Recordings
Backpack rap was sort of having a renaissance in 03/04, mainly thanks to Little Brother and Kanye West. Critics, revivalists and purists were sweating the shit out of Little Brother’s The Listening, which ended up being the surprise hit of ’03. And once 9th Wonder landed a beat on The Black Album? Forget about it. Everyone was talking about the trio from the Cackalack.
So it made sense that Yeezy and Little Bro get in the lab to cook something up. The result was the hilarious “I See Now” — which was a song for the ladies. The ladies who put on the pounds. Ye snapped with shots like: “How you order all that food and a mother fucking Diet Coke.” Sounds like somebody needed the new workout plan.
