“Kanye’s Favorite Song” combines the ethereal spirit of synths and backing vocals with an island-inspired rhythm.
Thutmose is one of the most exciting and eclectic new voices coming out of Brooklyn. The young artist immigrated to New York City from Nigeria at age nine, and has had a love affair with the city’s art and culture ever since. Feeling like an outsider informed a lot of his early writing while also fueling his hunger, which would explain how he found the gumption to title his latest single “Kanye’s Favorite Song.”
With Jalen Santoy on the feature and KillaGraham on the beat, “Kanye’s Favorite Song” combines the ethereal spirit of synths and backing vocals with an island-inspired rhythm. A moody hook is offset by erratic percussion, keeping the song from droning on and keeping the listener wired. Thutmose and Santoy trade bars with a snarling heat to them, each rapper focused on their punchy delivery.
