    More soul samples

    We're fully aware that Kanye West's College Dropout days are behind him. Those early albums contain some truly great samples, but Kanye is far past repeating himself, and we'd be fools to ask him to do so.

    That said, some of the beats Kanye has produced for other artists prove he still has the golden touch when it comes to combining soul music into rap. "Bound 2" felt like a half-hearted effort to prove he can still chop up vinyl with the best of them—SWISH, hopefully, will remove any doubt.
