We've had "All Falls Down" on a couple different pressings already, so if you already got it, you might as well consider this a new single cause the b-side "Get Em High" with Talib Kweli and Common is another essential cut. The beat probably won't make this a club knocker, but it's perfect for Kanye's lyrically-minded guests. The clean version stays true to the album track as Talib gets his intro while Kanye's talking to shorty on the phone (bad ass), but the dirty version places him after a chorus. While it's not quite as effective, Talib kills it either way. Common comes in clean-up with some weird off-beat shit and right when you think he's definitely lost it, he starts firing bullets like it was "Bitchinyoo" time. A good showing from all three. As for "All Falls Down," you should know it by now- it's the most feel-good song off Kanye's album (shit is addictive). Includes acapellas for both.
