Kanye’s Jamaican Moment: “Looking For Trouble” samples Steel Pulse‘s “Blues Dance Raid”
Leading up to the release of his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album, Kanye released a new track every week as part of his GOOD Friday campaign, celebrating the camaraderie he was enjoying creating with everyone from his GOOD. Music team to Ryan Leslie to Lloyd Banks. He found the perfect lineup for this posse cut, leading with noted dancehall and Jamaican culture enthusiast Pusha T. “Looking For Trouble” turned out to be perfect marriage of the beat and Pusha’s style. While the beat samples Steel Pulse’s “Blues Dance Raid,” (an OG reggae track previously used by the Heatmakerz on Cam’Ron’s “Bubble Music”), hustling historian Pusha shouts out the Shower Posse, namedropping the Jamaican crew’s then newly deceased leader, Vivian Blake.
