“Spaceship” by Kanye West is so great. It doesn’t shock me he wrote this song, the personality of it describes Mr. West raunchy side. I personally like it because it reminds me of that old school tune from the 1960s. It is a tune we rarely hear these days because everything is just so fast these days in the 2000s. I am actually listening to this song right now and it makes by head nod. “Spaceship” is really a soulful song. Now I began listening to it in the library, now I am listening to it again first thing in the morning. It still does give me the same feeling. “I wana fly” The thought that I am going to work today I can really relate. This song just expresses the employee living check to check. We all work at a job that is just enough but not enough for extras, personally after putting in 40 hours a week I would expect to bring home at least $500, that’s not too much. I feel it is a little ironic he is featuring other unknown artist such as GLC and Consequence like to get them heard, but in reality they probably feel this song was perfect for them. Working so hard to achieve their music career and still haven’t been there, example who and where are they 8 years later? “I’ve been working the graveship and I’ve ain’t made shit” that line in the chorus is so serious. Really pay attention to the humming in the background I instantly get a picture, sepia like with the slave from the south in the fields picking cotton. It could be because when the slaves would be in the fields they actually would sing hymns to each other, planning the escape like Kanye West is expressing in this song. It is really great the comparison. Struggles like that can drive a person mad. Then we just have to go back to the album itself, The College Dropout, staying in school with a degree according to Mr. West still doesn’t equal the life of endless money. “Spaceship” by Kanye West gets a rating of a 5.
