While Kanye West has an undisputed way with words and a serious flair for controversy, part of West’s creative bag of tricks comes from his use of sighs, “huh’s,” and “heh’s,” and whatever other noises come out of his mouth and are woven throughout his songs.

When listening to a song like “Gold Digger” or many of his contributions to Watch the Throne, he uses vocal noises to punctuate melodies and serve as a sort of verbal comma in his verses. But when those same sounds are extracted from the songs and strung together into a compilation, like this supercut from the six-man comedy team known as BORT, the result is more akin to super avant garde experimental music or secret code delivering messages for the military or illuminati.

Maybe Mark Zuckerberg really should invest a billion dollars in West’s ideas.
