Though Kanye West first engaged in full-scale musical experimentation on Graduation, he dove headlong into his creative depths for its follow-up 808s & Heartbreak. And while his arguable opus My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy felt more attuned to his hip-hop roots, Yeezus took the rulebook and defenestrated the ever-living hell out of it. Nowhere was Kanye's more chaotic impulses felt than on "I'm In It," the aural equivalent to oral, arguably the lustiest anthem of Kanye West's career.
While there are plenty of hilariously groan-inducing punchlines, namely "I know you need that reptile," "put my fist in her like the Civil Right's sign," and "eating Asian pussy all I need is sweet and sour sauce," the music itself is some of the boldest production we've seen from Ye's camp. Alternating between aggressive distortion and explosive synthesized wails, Kanye locks his heart away and allows his primal urges to take control. Clearly penned at the height of his alleged porn addiction, "I'm In It" benefits from a highly inspired, borderline electric performance from Kanye West -- not to mention Assassin's brilliant contribution, which instantly serves as a hype-inducer.
Though Yeezus remains one of Kanye West's most divisive albums, it has also benefitted from a renewed acclaim; it's gotten to the point where some have even elevated it to the top tier, with songs like "I'm In It" finding Yeezy at his magnetic best. Happy anniversary to a modern-day classic.
Damn, your lips very soft
As I turn my Blackberry off
And I turn your bathwater on
And you turn off your iPhone
Careless whispers, eye fucking, biting ass
Neck, ears, hair, legs, eating ass!
Your pussy's too good, I need to crash
Your titties, let em out, free at last
Thank God almighty, they free at last
