First he apologized to Taylor Swift. Now the contrite-Kanye trend continues on this bit of gorgeously swirling soul. Kanye confesses to being an asshole, then calls himself "the LeBron of rhyme." A year ago that would've been a boast, now it's an ironic wake-up call.
“Let's Do It Again”
The Staple Singers | 1975
Written and produced by Curtis Mayfield and released on his Curtom label, collaboration "Let's Do It Again" was originally part of the soundtrack to the film of the same name starring Jimmie "Dynamite!" Walker, Bill Cosby and Sidney Poitier (who also directed the film). The song's sexual subject matter was controversial with old school Staples fans who were rooted in the church, but the song remains in the group's canon. Mavis Staples' voice from the song was sampled in 2011 by Star Slinger, but she isn't suing: "Her manager played the remix I did and she actually liked it!" Darren "Star Slinger" Williams said with enthusiasm.
