Last year, Kanye’s Can’t Tell Me Nothing Mixtape featured some of his own material and some quality songs from cohorts like Common, Kweli and 88-Keys. One track was entitled “Stay Up,” and featured a verse from Yeezy and a poem from Malik Yusef. Now, as I said in a recent post, 88 is prepping his debut album, and what seems to be the first single has been dropped – “Stay Up.” Download the full version below and tell us what you think about the collaboration.

Producer 88-Keys is prepping his album The Death of Adam, and after a long, long wait it is finally set to drop. I heard the first drop from the album on Kanye’s Can’t Tell Me Nothing Mixtape, entitled “Stay Up.” About 6 weeks back, 88 then dropped his very own mixtape in preparation for the album’s release, entitled Adam’s Case Files, which featured Kid Cudi, Grafh, Serius Jones, and Tanya Morgan, among others. His tracks are really soul-inspired and very different from the hip-hop we’ve heard. By making his lyrics comical and utilizing some of the best artists in hip-hop right now (Kanye, Bilal, Redman, Kid Cudi) 88 is bringing the world some quality, quality music. And, with a executive producer co-sign from Kanye, this album seems destined to be a hit.
