Kanye West Track Selected as Official Soundtrack of 2009 NBA Playoffs

Kanye_west YOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! SOME PEOPLE ARE LETTING KANYE BE GREAT!


West's song, "Amazing," off of his 2008 album 808s and Heartbreak, has been selected by the NBA to be the official song of the 2009 Playoffs. In a video created by NBA Entertainment, the song moves clips and images of past playoff games along in a classic montage style.

I have to say, I'm a sucker for montages and especially sports montages (read: I will watch every single Top 50 show on Best Damn Sports Show Period, even if it's on, like, curling or some shit), so I think this video is pretty rad. West is, of course, ALL CAPS about the collaboration. From his blog the other day: "YOOOOOO EVERYBODY... AMAZING IS THE OFFICIAL THEME SONG OF THE NBA PLAYOFFS!!!!!!!! THANK YOU TO EVERYBODY WHO HELPED MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!!"

I'd say he's pleased.

West also has some other potentially lucrative endeavors on the horizon. A Kanye West signature fragrance will be hitting the olfactory scene within the next two years. And later this year, a Kanye West energy drink will be available for all of your OHMYGODI'MSOFUCKINGHYPED needs. Clearly, we all need a little of whatever Kanye is drinking.

"YOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! SOME PEOPLE ARE LETTING KANYE BE GREAT!"

HA HA HA HAHAHA. HA. That made me laugh really hard. At work. Alone. So thanks!!

Ha! Love it...I do, however have to disagree with that last statement. I work with enough ALL CAPS-ified a-holes. At least as far as my life goes, there is NOOOOO need to drink the Kanye Juice. Oh god.

Sweetney

Well thank god the people have stopped trying to cock block Kanye's greatness. snorfle.

Love your intro before the cut... and the song? Not bad a bad choice. I'm definitely a sports montage junkie myself, and I don't even really follow any sports.

I have been really worried about Kanye and how people just won't let him be great. It keeps me up nights.
Thank you, NBA, for letting this giant douche-bubble be great.

LovelyLayla

They won't let him be great because he likes fish sticks, isn't that the reason?

I'm glad they picked Kanye. If I had to hear that Kevin Rudolph song one more time, I may have stabbed something.

Go Cavs!
