Not Like I Used Too

Been digging up some old records from like four years ago when I was still all vinyl thuggin and reppin hard for album cuts off major label rap records. This has nothing to do with that, but around those same weird days there was a time when Kanye put out three basically identical records: "Get By" by Talib Kweli, "This Way" by Dilated Peoples and "Used to Love U" by John Legend.

The first was a classic (and I don't usually ride for Kweli), the second was kind of sad, really, but the third had a decent run on the radio and then melted into obscurity. Which is a shame because it's a great little bittersweet jam with deep bass and Dilla-esque crowd-hyping vocals arbitrarily shoehorned into the background.
