I was just wondering to myself last night how it’s possible that there’s no CDQ of “New Slaves” yet. To keep it all the way 100, this isn’t really CDQ, and we know this because it’s on Soundcloud, which converts everything to 128 Kbps, which doesn’t really count as CDQ. But this is the first taste we’re getting of the song that isn’t a rip from his SNL performance or one of the projections.
That being said, and as SPIN points out, this studio version is very scratchy and not at all the polished product you would normally expect from Mr. West. Which probably means it’s intentional.
