Kanye West goes retro on Theophilus London’s “Can’t Stop” — listen

on October 28, 2014, 1:55pm

The abrasive, raw intensity of Kanye West’s Yeezus is a distant memory on the rapper’s latest piece of new music. Kanye has contributed a guest verse to Theophilus London’s soulful new song “Can’t Stop”, and his smooth delivery combined with playful lyrics certainly calls to mind The College Dropout-era Yeezy.

Might this be an indication of where Kanye is heading sonically on his forthcoming seventh solo LP? Based on the leaked snippet of lead single, “All Day”, the answer is probably no. But, at the very least, it’s nice to know pre-808s & Heartbreak Kanye is still in there somewhere.

Below, you can stream “Can’t Stop” along with the rest of London’s new album, Vibes, which Kanye executive produced. The album officially arrives on November 4th.
