LISTEN: Kanye West Finally Drops “No More Parties in LA” Featuring Kendrick Lamar
"Drop-dro-dro-dro-drop it like Robocop."
After years of rumors about his long-awaited Yeezus follow-up album, so far 2016 has been a good year for Kanye West fans…and the Twitter followers of his family. In a strange new tradition, West dropped another brand-new track on NYE (“FACTS”) and two Fridays ago he unveiled “Real Friends” along with a snippet of another new song”No More Parties in LA.” While the latter track, which features Kendrick Lamar and was produced by Madlib, wasn’t released this past Friday as Kim Kardashian lead us to believe, West took to his own Twitter account this morning to ceremoniously tell the world that “It’s up.”
Unlike the slow burning guilt and self-doubt of “Real Friends,” “No More Parties in LA” is a rapid-fire onslaught of playful self awareness from both West (“When did I become A list? I wasn’t even on a list”) and Lamar (“She said K Lamar, you kind of dumb to be a poet”). It also tackles very specific issues in West’s life like being paranoid about driving off Mulholland Drive and having his matted-out Maybach wrecked.
Check out the track—which actually includes the lyrics “Whole family gettin’ money, thank God for E!”—below.
Swish is due out on February 11 via G.O.O.D. Music/Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam.
