Complex says: There's a reason why 'Ye once dubbed himself "The Gap like Banana Republic and Old Navy." He may have become an in-demand producer after producing cuts for thugs like Beanie Sigel and Jay-Z, but he was still sporting the backpack and was a conscious hip-hop fan at heart. Maybe that's why he gave some of his dopest early beats to Kweli, including this one as well as the biggest hit of Kweli's career, "Get By."
