"Guilt Trip"

An ice-cold look at lost love, "Guilt Trip" is reminiscent of 808s & Heartbreak in its robotic melancholy. Kanye raps through Auto-Tune, though the sad tone is sometimes broken up by a few lyrical eye-rollers ("Your feelings like Zulu, then nothing is a Shaka / I hit her with Jamaican d--k, I'm the new Shabba"). Kanye drops another hint of dancehall in the form of a Popcaan sample on the hook, before beautiful cello swirls introduce Kid Cudi, who's emotional sung coda is a fitting swan song to his now-terminated G.O.O.D. Music membership.
