Kanye West has taken a page from the Radiohead playbook by offering up his new single "Love Lockdown" in isolated song stems to allow fans to remix the 808s & Heartbreak track. But whereas Radiohead charged 99 cents for each stem, West has posted all of them for free over at his blog. As of now, there's no contest aligning itself with the remixes — it's just for recreational purposes to keep you occupied while you wait for the release of 808s on "November something."
