Free Download | Real Friends - Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign
Incase y’all forgot, it’s Yeezy season. Kanye has been making waves with these cuts from his forthcoming project — which coincidentally is now titled ‘WAVES’ instead of ‘SWISH’. The rapper turned fashion designer has been blowing up on Twitter after he went on a rant about Wiz Khalifa, but he made sure to assure his fans that his focus is still on finalizing ‘WAVES’.
This is the first taste we’re getting of the new Kanye, and it’s worlds better than what we were expecting. The production is much more ear-pleasing than the experimental blasphemous monstrosity that he released in 2013, and the lyricism is much more in-tune with the contemplative ‘Ye that we grew to love over the last decade. The feature from label affiliate Ty Dolla $ign is fitting; his R&B vocals are scattered throughout the track, but his voice and delivery is an essential relief from the intriguing, but otherwise repetitive beat.
Whether you like it or not, Kanye is going to make millions off of this album. Kanye is going to make millions no matter what he touches, because he’s Kanye. He might dub himself a genius, and you might disagree, but the fact is that he’s an icon — if he can get Yeezus to top charts, this more palatable style will definitely go Platinum. I shouldn’t have to tell you to follow Kanye on Twitter and Soundcloud, but if you care at all about pop culture you should do it.
