didn't see a thread about it anyway.
shame it's a rough mix/rushed out, is a bit sketchy. tune is good though.
too much of this type of music sounds slick and polished. i always think it sounds...more pure (?) when it is rushed and messy, though i guess a whole album might be pushing it.
I don't know what she'll add/subtract in the final version, but the idea of this being a rushed-out-rough-mix works in it's favour. Her delivery sounds like she's trying to get everything off her chest before time's up, and the unfinished production matches that aesthetic.

She's obviously got little regard for following a beat these days, so it'd almost be better without, but the little hook is lovely and the music is interesting enough that you can't complain. Reminds me of Mos Def on fire.
it's a bit 'words that end in ism' though, isn't it?
A whole record of songs like this would test anyone's patience.
Still, it's pretty great to just hear her rapping again after all these years.
Is she still batshit crazy these days?
