But ummmm I like the song, I love how they go back and forth on "Bawse" shit its nice. Kanye got Jay in this in my opinion. But does anyone understand the song. WTF does the sample have to do with all this talk of fly shit. I really cant get into this song like ppl are, I like it but I prefer H.A.M. I woulda loved OTIS to be a love ballad, or softer type of rap song. Thoughts?

    I posted a similar statement as the t/s in a thread last week. To me, the sample and title of the song seem irrelevant to what Jay and Kanye were rappin' about. It's what I pointed out as the invitation to negative criticism. They sampled a classic which automatically raises expectations, then to name it "Otis" and not really address Otis Redding adds insult to injury. I'm not saying, it's wack because of it, but it's not surprising that Cee Lo and Ski responded how they did.

    I dont understand why people think so literally.

    Goriilaz released Clint Eastwood and Dirty Harry, both of which have nothing to do with Clint or the fictional character he portrays. And no one said shit.

    Same with 'Kast and Rosa Parks.

    Wiz and Currensy had a fire song called Huey Newton and caught shit because "it was an insult to the memory of Huey Newton" (because all black artists are obligated to carry the torch for all Black activists)

    Why do people wanna bring up this shit with Jay and 'Ye?

    Who knows but the beat was tight, the song was decent and Kanye slaughtered Jay so it's all good.

    all I hear is a looped track with two out of touch buddies going back and forth about the invention of swagger never going to hell and wearing snapbacks to the back so the fresh cut is exposed ..

    one buddy sounds more wheezy breathed and the other buddy has more control of his voice ....
