“Made in America”/ “New Day”

S.Dot: MLK on the big screen while hip-hop plays, what’s fucking with that? The King’s dream epitomized. These are my two favorite songs on the LP and I thought it was brilliant that they stripped down the performance for “New Day.” Two MCs just sitting down, kicking the ballistics.

J-Rod: Before they started “New Day,” Kanye, to me, looked teary and then he told the crowd: “This is my favorite verse I wrote my whole career. This is real shit.” Hov, for his part, played a good wing man (he’s underrated as a hype man, by the way, he just doesn’t play that part often). He smiled when ‘Ye spit the strip club bit and put his hand over his heart during the “and I’ll never let his mom move to L.A.” line. “This is my favorite joint on the album,” Kanye said after his 16. “I’ma close my eyes and zone out like I’m in the car. Even though I’m with 15,000 people in Atlanta.”
