Download and listen to Kanye West Ft Mr Hudson – Paranoid
808s & Heartbreak was a huge departure for Kanye West. The album found him experimenting with auto-tune, singing for nearly the entirety of the project. It also found him at his most vulnerable,coming after the unexpected death of his mother, Donda West, and his break-up with fiancee Alexis Phifer. 808s turns 8 today, and its influence is as clear as ever. From Drake to Travis Scott, the project has directly inspired many artists who broke out in the years following its release. “Paranoid” is actually one of the most joyful-sounding songs on the album.
