Just as Kim Kardashian promised last night, Kanye West has released a new song titled "Real Friends" featuring Ty Dolla $ign that is produced by 'Ye, Frank Dukes, Boi-1da, and Havoc. This is now back to back weeks that Kanye has dropped new music, and that trend is going to continue into the foreseeable future, according to Kim.
While "Facts" was more of a trap sound from Kanye, he returns to his soulful roots on "Real Friends" with very open and personal lyrics about his past relationships and even the birth of his son, Saint West. On his own family, he raps, "I'm a deadbeat cousin, I hate family reunions, fuck the church up by drinking at the communion, spilling free wine, now my tux is ruined, in town for a day, what the fuck we doing." He also references his 'stop asking me for favors' tweets from last month.
Whether they're calling it G.O.O.D Fridays or not, that's basically what Kanye is doing all over again with the weekly drops of new tunes. In addition to "Real Friends," Kanye has also shared a new snippet of "No More Parties In LA," which samples GhostfaceKillah's "Mighty Healthy" and features a verse from Kendrick Lamar, though it's faded out at the end. Madlib also contributed to the production.
Along with the new song and snippet, it was also just announced that Kanye will be the headliner at Governors Ball this year in NYC. Kanye has removed the songs from his SoundCloud page multiple times, but they're now back up and you can listen on his site here and below. As Kanye said, have a nice weekend.
It will be back up shortly. When it’s back up all rippers please rip the new one instead.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) January 8, 2016
