Producer: Kanye West, DJ Toomp
Anybody who's trying rise to the top is going to face adversity, but what better middle finger is there than obnoxiously reciting "Can't Tell Me Nothing" at the top of your lungs? The Graduation cut was the mission statement that solidified Kanye's status as a decade-defining artist. Going to a job interview? Getting ready for that big game? Trying to get on that bus without using your Metrocard? Just blast this song, because there's almost no retort for a man that almost prophetically says, "Can't Tell Me Nothing." Bring a Metrocard just in case, though.
