「音樂天才」、「時尚革命者」、「嘻哈英雄」Kanye West的第二彈《Late Registration》在樂壇果然掀起如卡崔娜颶風的強大風暴,專輯一上架就造成搶購,目前估價週銷售落在80萬-90萬,在滾石雜誌義無反顧給予五顆星滿分評價後,勢必是今年最強勢的專輯之一。不過,即便自己已經在市場呼嘯,Kanye卻按耐不住對美國總統布希的不爽,週五晚間他參加NBC電視台現場直播的「A Concert for Hurricane Relief」演唱晚會上便脫稿演出,在節目進行三分之二時,強力批評美國總統布希「一點都不在乎黑人」,突如其來的言論讓一旁的諧星Mike Myers一臉錯愕,Kanye很有魄力的對著鏡頭質問,他說,「我不喜歡媒體描述黑人的方式,報導黑人家庭就是在搶劫,換作白人卻是在找食物。」Kanye還對布希政府緩慢的救災行為感冒,也不滿政府竟授權開槍射擊人民等作為。當然這樣的言論看在NBC電視台眼中自然急忙澄清,這僅是Kanye個人的立場,和電視台沒有關聯。
 
姑且不論Kanye言論還會引發怎樣的效應,我們回歸音樂。新專輯繼〈Diamonds From Sierra Leone〉後的最新主打歌〈Gold Digger〉MV請來大師
Hype Williams操刀,加上奧斯卡影帝Jamie Foxx加持與Kanye West的子弟兵John Legnd的插花,可說是一首相當成功的視覺作品;歌曲取樣了雷查爾斯的作品,一開頭歌詞提到「She take my money when I'm in need」,如果我們在搜尋打這兩句歌詞和Ray Charles的名字當成關鍵字的話,〈Gold Digger〉取樣的正是Ray的經典名曲〈I Got a Woman〉。

提到Jamie Foxx,先前就在Twista的全美冠軍名曲〈
Slow Jamz 〉和Kanye合作【註:該曲還取樣了Luther Vandross的名曲〈A House Is Not A Home〉,後面有個女聲在那喂來喂去就是原曲路瑟也有小喂一下】,兩人在上月的MTV音樂獎上也同台演唱〈Gold Digger〉,Jamie還裸露他的胸肌,一時成為話題,不過這露胸肌的把戲在Jamie演出的電影『機戰未來』就展現過了。妙的是,這首歌歌詞有很多精采之處,就連J Lo和Usher都列名其中,究竟有什麼意涵呢?大家聽聽看吧。

Kanye West Gold Digger Lyrics

[Jamie Foxx]

She take my money when I'm in need Yea she's a trifflin friend indeed Oh she's a gold digga way over town That dig's on me

[Chorus:]

  • Kanye真的是後~~~<br />
    <br />
    說上期Time 跟Newsweek都也介紹他呢<br />
    紅到一個不行呀^___________^<br />
    <br />
    還有MV裡John Legend那客串是怎樣????<br />
    <br />
    少到讓我傻眼>.<
  • jordy
  • Newsweek 有沒有封面啊<br />
    我剛找到time的封面<br />
    這樣貼出來果然更有氣勢:P<br />
    至於苦命的john...有鏡頭就不錯了吧
  • 感謝推薦~不過你的介紹才是詳細呢!<br />
    <br />
    Kanye West真的很有天份,<br />
    看他在05年Grammy上的言詞,<br />
    不難發現他其實對自己很有自信,<br />
    (當然,他之前早就製作許多首暢銷曲)<br />
    當時好像是在頒獎前就很有自信說自己會得獎,<br />
    好在他最後真的得了獎,上台還即興念了段rap,<br />
    訴說他那陣子的心境,<br />
    (因為02'十月出了場致命車禍,Kayne認為是那場車禍改變他的命運,才有今天)<br />
    總之真的很佩服他!<br />
    <br />
    對於他在Grammy的自信,<br />
    後來有節目主持人訪問他時都會問他這個問題<br />
    "如果你當時沒得獎的話怎辦"...嘻嘻..<br />
    結果Kanye都答不太出來,顯然當初他並沒留條後路給自己!<br />
    <br />
  • jesse1124
  • sorry,上面是我.發現竟沒寫名字
  • jordy
  • 這就是上天造化人<br />
    那天他和亞瑟小子搶的你死我活<br />
    最後兩個都拿到小獎<br />
    結果都是老雷專輯得獎<br />
    但想不到Kanye這首歌又拿老雷的歌來取樣<br />
    你說人生是不是很奇妙呢
  • overdose
  • 感覺上主要是 Kanye 已經爆紅了很久很久<br />
    2004 年初還在美國<br />
    就天天看到他的 MV (也因為我是看 VH1 Soul 這個台啦 :P)<br />
    做唱片就非要請他去做一下不可<br />
    那文化不同,怎麼運用自己的「紅」當然就不一樣<br />
    有些國情就是鼓勵你用你的不可一世來呼籲一下啦 :)<br />
    <br />
    P.S. 沒來由的好想看上面 Arena 寫 Daniel Craig :P<br />
    <br />

  • 在網路上搜尋"she take my money when I'm in need"跟"Ray Charles"<br />
    並不會找到I've Got A Woman這首歌吧 ^.^"<br />
    如果我沒聽錯的話 Kanye有改過歌詞~
  • jordy
  • 或許我寫的並不夠仔細...<br />
    根據我的ie的紀錄<br />
    當初我是打以下的關鍵字<br />
    "She take my money when I'm in need ray charles lyrics"<br />
    第一個出來的result就是<br />
    I Got A Woman Lyrics - Ray Charles <br />
    Kanye是有改歌詞沒錯<br />
    但光是【She gives me money when I'm in need】<br />
    即使gives被改成"take"<br />
    還是因為這個句子發現這是Ray的歌曲<br />
    <br />
    事實上我並沒有在聽Ray Charles的歌 <br />
    到現在我也還沒買過Kanye(已經在飛往台灣的陸上)<br />
    不過我就是這樣找到的<br />
    至於"I Got A Woman"也有一些是寫成"I've Got A Woman"<br />
    只是在我還沒拿到CD之前<br />
    或許有未臻完善之處<br />
    尚請多包含<br />
    <br />
    另外值得一提是<br />
    首支主打歌取樣Shirley Bassey<br />
    似乎沒有喬好就發了<br />
    聽說讓大姐大非常不爽。<br />
    <br />
    原始歌詞第一段<br />
    Well... I got a woman, way over town<br />
    She's good to me, oh yeah<br />
    Said I got a woman, way over town<br />
    She's good to me, oh yeah<br />
    【She gives me money when I'm in need】<br />
    Yeah, she's a kind of friend indeed<br />
    I got a woman, way over town<br />
    She's good to me, oh yeah<br />
