23. Kanye West f/ Rick Ross "Devil In A New Dress" (2010)
Album: My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Producer: Bink!, Mike Dean
Label: Roc-A-Fella, Def Jam
Originally released as part of Ye’s G.O.O.D. Friday series, “Devil In A New Dress” was so lauded that it was called up to the big leagues and placed on Kanye’s fifth album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The spiced-up version included on the album featured a new guitar solo, and a new verse from Rick Ross. If you were unsatisfied with The Boss’s brief appearance on “Monster,” Rozay more than made up for it on his feature here.
“Devil” found Kanye revisiting the chopped-up soul sample sound he favored early in his career, courtesy of his Blueprint cronie Bink! The slow-rolling ballad features Yeezy showing a softer, more vulnerable side, opening up about a woman whom he likens to Beelzebub.
