Kanye West's 4th studio album is set to drop on December 16th, is currently titled 808 & Heartbreaks.
Alot of people are like "WTF are 808s!" Lol, so I'm here to tell you. I know you've heard the term before at least once in Kelis' "Bossy" when she spits "I'm back with 808s on the track, I'm BOSSY!"
An 808 is an artists' source of bass. A Roland TR-808 Sequencher machine ( made in the 80s) gives off the effect a drummer would. Basically, this is that good sh_t! An essential to some dope tracks.
Also, the term "808" is police talk for disturbing the peace (as in loud music / bass made from an 808 machine) Get it?
