Album: My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Producer: Kanye West
Label: Roc-A-Fella, Def Jam
Featuring tribal drums and a sample of Bon Iver’s “Woods,” “Lost In The World” was one of Kanye’s most adventurous productions to date. The track features several musical changes, incorporating noises and instruments that wouldn’t otherwise be paired together.
It’s another track where Kanye explores being lost in love in a world of fame and fortune. “You’re my devil, you’re my angel/You’re my heaven you’re my hell”—which finds Kanye struggling with the metaphysical.
Fun Fact: Kanye’s official DJ and Treated Crew member Million $ Mano, gave Kanye the drums for the record.
