has made his return to social media via Twitter and we've all been so entertained because well, everyone knows he's notorious for (Kim K's voice), "saying the wildest things." Now we have a lot more Kanye than we asked for and among all those somewhat senseless tweets, there's even some gold. Gold that comes in the way of new potential music from the rapper. Not just music from him, but also music from other well known artists that he has collaborated with. Yep, you may not have known it, but Yeezy's behind some of your favorite records.
The rapper did as promised and delivered two tracks this past weekend. The first "track" he released was "Lift Yourself," which was more of a troll type of thing that left most listeners confused, or in my case, dying of laughter (wait for that last verse). This goes to show that, whether or not we like to admit it, West is pretty powerful and can release whatever he wants and the world will listen.
The second track has more of an actual meaning behind it as it was his way of defending his support for Donald Trump. He of course named the track "Ye Vs. The People" featuring T.I. At least he's... saying something this time?
The man is a rapper, producer, fashion designer, and entrepreneur but of course it's easy to forget he wears all those hats sometimes. According to Wikipedia, he's helped produce roughly around 148 albums, including his own. So, if the two new tracks he's recently shared just aren't doing it for you, we've chosen some singles off the albums he's produced in the past for your listening pleasure because yes, we miss the old Kanye too.
It's no secret that West and the Carters have been friends for years and have collaborated many times. From this album, West produced and wrote "Party" feat. Andre 3000
, Kanye West, and J. Cole
This album is Common's sixth studio album and it was primarily produced by West. Some songs include "The Corner" and "GO!," which features West doing backing vocals alongside John Mayer
for the track.
The album was released in 2004 via Atlantic Records. The song "Talk About Our Love" features West who produced and wrote the track, of course.
Man on the Moon: The End of Day (Kid Cudi)
The track "Make Her Say" was Cudi's second single off his debut album Man on the Moon: The End of Day
. It features West and Common who have both been friends with Cudi for years.
Thank Me Later (Drake)
This was Drake's debut album and the track "Find Your Love" was the second single he released. The track was written by Drake, two others, and West.
Watch the Throne (Jay Z & Kanye West)
Can't speak of Kanye West without mentioning his "older brother" Jay Z. The friends had collaborated for years and in 2011, the two released this collaborative album which features "Ni**as in Paris."
Based on a T.R.U. Story (2 Chainz)
Again, "Birthday Song" was the second single released from 2 Chainz from this album. It features West who also produced the track along with the help of several others.
Love in the Future (John Legend)
This is Legend's fourth studio album which was executive produced by Legend himself, West, and Dave Tozer. It also features Rick Ross
Dark Sky Paradise (Big Sean)
"IDFWU" is the lead single, featuring E-40, from Big Sean's album Dark Sky Paradise.
The track was heavily influenced by Sean's previous relationship and produced by West and others.
Paper Trail (T.I.)
This is the rapper's sixth studio album and the track "Swagga Like Us" was made with the help of T.I. and Jay Z and features West and Lil Wayne
. Its chorus is a remix of M.I.A
's "Paper Planes." We wonder if this track led to T.I. owing West a favor that resulted in him being featured in "Ye Vs. The People."
