You’ve all probably heard by now that Kanye’s new song ‘Clique’ mentions his girlfriend Kim Kardashian, again. It also mentions Kardashian’s sex-tape, again. What everybody seems to be ignoring though, is that ‘Clique’ is actually a pretty great track. Knowing that he’s potentially a better producer than he is rapper, West’s verses aren’t the main feature of the song – instead it focuses on Jay-Z and Big Sean, both of whom offer a good balance to Yeezy’s incredible bravado. The record is shaping up to be a really great one, with West pulling the big guns: R Kelly, Jay-Z, Big Sean, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Kid Cudi, Common, DJ Khaled, John Legend, Ma$e, Malik Yusef, Jadakiss… Somewhat disappointingly, there are only a couple of female guests on the album. But we’re glad one of them is Teyana Taylor. At the rate the songs keep leaking, we’ll have heard the entire record by its drop date on September 18th.
