Yep, Kanye’s been baiting us today with tweets and then deleted Tweets but its here, this time we hope for G.O.O.D. He’s done his thing and let us know that the “New version is up. Please please erase the old one I wasn’t satisfied with the sound quality“. So now its your turn to satisfy yourself with the genius that is ‘Real Friends’.
This year doesn’t look like anyone’s going to want to ‘Shhhsh’ about Kanye, 2016 has started with ‘Swish’ firmly front of mind (sorry Drake), but this year everyone’s upping their game. ‘Real Friends’ is some real talk, honest about his trust issues and loaded with contractions about the reciprocity of friendship when rising from the bottom to the top. It’s dedicated to all of us who can barely count our ‘real friends’ on one hand anymore.
Lookin’ for all my real friends
How many of us? How many of us are real friends
To real friends, to the real end
‘Til the wheels fall off, ’til the wheels don’t spin
As for that snippet of ‘No More Parties in L.A’, after his Tweet the day Kendrick dropped ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’, it’s hardly surprising that the man of every moment over the past 15 years, was gonna get the man of the moment to put a verse on it. It all started with Jay-Z’s ‘Blueprint’ in 2001 and we’re still on the road to excellence.
This is Kanye at one of his finest moments – listen to ‘Real Friends’ on KanyeWest.com now, he’s just doing his thing and he’s finally back to some real music business. Update: ‘Swish’ is coming on the 11/02/16.
