Woof. Even the worst Kanye West tracks are rarely boring...more likely they're dumb ala "Drunk And Hot Girls" or "The New Workout Plan." But Kanye is pretty much never boring. His music is so identifiably and obviously Kanye that his rebel spirit can't help but shine through. And that's why it's so disappointing to report that his latest track, "FACTS," is an undeniable snoozer. And there's a reason why. For the first time in his entire career, Kanye isn't leading the curve of what hip-hop should sound like. He's following everybody else with this new trap-lite single. And it doesn't help the song's cause that it's full of so many hyper-specific cultural references that it will sound dated two weeks from now. Sorry, Yeezy. You can do better than this.
