This upcoming quadrant is strong. Maybe three of my top five Kanye songs are coming up here.
Jesus Walks vs Murder to Excellence (1st seed vs 16th)
Jesus Walks is just too strong. Great song, outstanding sample.
Street Lights vs We Don’t Care (8th seed vs 9th)
I like 808s and I think Street Lights is one of the best songs on it.
We Major vs 30 Hours (5th seed vs 12th)
Not too interested in this matchup, a couple of decent songs.
Stronger vs Black Skinheads (4th seed vs 13th)
Stronger is my pick to win this entire competition. I like techno and I love Daft Punk, and I think this is Kanye’s strongest sample.
That said, Black Skinheads, like a lot of newer songs, is way under seeded. I would have given it like a 4th or 5th seed, not a first round battle against Stronger.
