While poking around for stuff about Belo from Do or Die–who just got sent up for 10 years–I found this neat video of Kanye West, during his speeded-up-soul-sample prime, making a beat for the Chicago group. (As far as Belo? Eh: OK flow, weird dork-cum-player voice, not a lot to say. On the other hand, describing a girl as “So Exclusive” captures so many facets of the instinct to objectify that it’s an impressive achievement.)
