Ever the walking cliché, I think if I had to name my favorite [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm] joint it would be 2005′s hit with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jamie Foxx[/lastfm], “Gold Digger.”
The first time I heard it, a friend was DJ’ing at an Echo Park bar where the beverages were flowing. Suffice to say, I was screaming “Yep Dat’s Me” in reply years before Foxx could ever possibly pen his current hit.
At the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival‘s Red Granite party, the pair brought the hit song alive once again and it made me realize how much I miss the Kanye West musical stylings of yesteryear.
According to Kanye West, once a “gold digger,” always a “gold digger.”
