So now that we have all watched or at least skimmed through the full-length “Runaway” video — or what fellow Fix’er Dan Nishimoto aptly called an elaborate EPK — we can get back to just focusing on the music on Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Unfortunately, it seems that all of us bumping those G.O.O.D. Friday tracks have kind of spoiled the hell out of the album. According to the track list on iTunes, we have heard more than half of it. And now, with “Dark Fantasy” leaking, we know how the damn thing kicks off. At least we can be confident in knowing most of it is rather epic and damn good, especially this track with its classic RZA production and assistance from No I.D. Congrats, Kanye, you have rekindled my stan status for your ridiculous-self.
