“Hate” (ft. Kanye West) (MP3)

    Kanye West does the production on “Hate,” and provides this slithering, dubby beat for Jay-Z to do this funky, slightly arrhythmic rap over. Even though there’s no Auto-tune on this track, the contemporary synthetic feel of this beat certainly exposes that Jigga’s prepared to accept the new hip-hop landscape a little more than he might want people to think. Though, maybe sitcking to the time-tested hip-hop standard of bashing “haters” might throw people off. [TheFader]
