The first eight measures of synth pulses on "High Lights" had me bracing for the "Rock Steady" by the Whispers—alas. Here, instead, we have the song that Kanye West and Young Thug will perform together this coming weekend on Saturday Night Live, though Thugger's just on the hook, and really it's the-Dream who pulls this song together. It's at this point in the live premiere of this album that I'm realizing that The Life of Pablo is one part Surf (also a gospel album, if you ask me), one part Yeezus (also a gospel album, if you ask me), one part Free TC (also a gos—). And I'll say, Kanye's rapping on "High Lights" sounds rather obviously indebted to Kendrick Lamar, with that M4 carbine flow of his.
