The Complete History of Kanye West Guest Verses

Common's "They Say" (2005)

Album: Be
Producer: Kanye West
Label: G.O.O.D. Music/Geffen

As Kanye's fame continued to rise, the MC joined fellow Chicago native Common and John Legend to vent his feelings about outside opinions on him over this smooth track. Not only did 'Ye use "antihistamine" in a rhyme, he also poked fun at what the rest of the world was saying about him. "They say because of the fame and stardom/I'm somewhere in between the church and insane asylum/I guess it's messing with my health then/And this verse so crazy when I finish I'm just gon' check myself in, again"
