Though controversial political statements have sullied Kanye West’s Twitter comeback, the rapper has also used the platform to announce a slew of upcoming music. For those who missed it, ‘Ye has teased a handful of G.O.O.D. Music projects, as well as collaborations with ASAP Rocky, Travis Scott, and Lil Uzi Vert.
Rocky we gotta release our songs ASAP— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 25, 2018
T’was the plan legoooo. https://t.co/dHymUXUPmY— TRAVIS SCOTT (@trvisXX) April 25, 2018
Thankfully, it didn’t take too long before we received one of the promised joint records.
On Thursday night, Travis released his new single called “Watch,” featuring Kanye and Lil Uzi. Though the Houston rapper announced the track just hours before it hit streaming services, it was still unclear if this song was the rumored ‘Ye x Uzi collaboration.
The cover art did not indicate any featured guests; however, Apple Music confirmed the rumors on the “Travis Scott Essentials” playlist.
'Ye closed out the Pi'erre Bourne-produced track with a verse that touched on his opioid addiction—a struggle he recently revealed during an appearance on TMZ Live:
Wanna know how I feel? Step into my minefield
Wanna know how pain feels? I got off my main pills
Bet my wifey stay close, she know I'm on my Bezos
Opioid addiction, pharmacy's the real trap
Sometimes I feel trapped, Jordan with no Phil Jack
One year it's the illuminati, next year it's the Sunken Place
They don't want me to change, nah, nigga run in place
You can listen to the Pi'erre Bourne-produced “Watch” on iTunes/Apple Music or via Spotify below.
