French Montana- Figure It Out (ft. Kanye West & Nas)

Let's face it. Kanye is the reason that 95% have clicked on the link to this song. And that's okayyyy. Because "Figure It Out" is the only time you will be able to hear Kanye wax new rhymes oh so poetically unless you succumb to peer pressure and subscribe to Tidal. Don't do it guys. Idk why, but I picture Tidal as the Scientology of music streaming options #weirdbutrue. And y'all can just listen to Kanye through Soundcloud where French Montana has laid down the freshest track in the land. And PLOT TWIST: Nas makes an appearance as well! The three boys trade some verses while French Montana also has some fun with the production backing the whole track all up. He takes some wonderfully idiosyncratic choices here—the hint of melodic piano slabs throughout and the appearance of those acidic guitar licks to name a few. But then he still uses the classic move of layering those overly-autotuned Kanye vocals over some underlying chipmunk vocals. That shit goes better together than chocolate and peanut butter. Or Kanye and his life-size dress up doll lovely wife, Kim.
