Oh, thank god. Last week, Kanye dropped a new track, "Facts," and it wasn't great
. And after a couple of technical hiccups that saw Kanye uploading and removing the track multiple times from his Soundcloud page, we can finally hear Kanye's follow-up track, "Real Friends." And we're happy to report that Kanye got his groove back.
In the weeks leading up to the release of Kanye's highly anticipated new record, Swish
, Ye plans on retreading his G.O.O.D. Friday releases that saw him dropping a new track each Friday before the release of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
(aka Kanye's best record by a mile and a half). And he dropped the first one today, "Real Friends" (plus a snippet of another track featuring Kendrick Lamar). And this is the hyper-personal Kanye that we haven't seen in a hot minute, with an equal mix of outwardly directed anger and self-excoriation. We want more of this ASAP.
