New Kanye West Track Snippets

I'll be honest, as a person Kanye kind of rubs me the wrong way, but as a musician I enjoy what he has to offer. His samples are always pretty great, like Otis Redding on "Gone" and Ella Fitzgerald on "Addiction". "Stronger" is not the music wittiest of moves, but it works...although it seems more like a cool mash-up. Regardless, the album should be good, with Jon Brion helpin' out, plus some good cameos. It drops on 9/11.
