The video is spectacular. How can you have everything that sucess brings and still doubt your sucess.

Glad to see Kanye back to rapping. No one in pop music can touch him today. In fact, no one else even matters (well, maybe Eminem). But that's about it.

Eminem is really good. His Recovery CD is excellent.

But, you're right: Kanye's the best right now. Certainly the most interesting.

At least until Andre and Big Boi get back together again.

I don't know. I wasn't that impressed with 'Speakerboxx and the Love Below'

I think Outcast may have run their course.
