Shout out to Kanye West, who just made Monday morning way more palatable thanks to the release of a new track. Called “No More Parties In LA,” the catchy song features Kendrick Lamar; and while it’s not technically the G.O.O.D Friday we’d been promised, we’ll still happily take it.
Earlier this month, Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, announced the news that her rapper husband would be releasing new music every Friday to tide us over until his wildly anticipated album, SWISH, is released; a teaser campaign that harkens back to the 15 weeks of “G.O.O.D. Fridays” where Kanye would do the same thing, leading up to his 2010 opus album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. When Kanye failed to debut a new song last Friday, Kim explained via a tweet (what else?), that the delay in this week’s music drop was due to Kanye traveling through Italy.
During the brand new, six-minute song, Kanye and Lamar get very real about the Hollywood lifestyle—which, at least according the the lyrics, sounds about as deep as a puddle. Here’s a taster of the (expletive-filled) lyrics:
“Thinking back to how I got here in the first place
Second place b*tches wouldn’t let me on first base
A backpack n*gga with luxury taste buds
And a Louis Vuitton, still got all of my pay stubs
Got p*ssy for piece I did for n*ggas more famous
When did I become A-List? I wasn’t even on A-List”
The Kardashian-West family get a mention too, and it’s here that the rapper’s misogynistic lyrics bizarrely reach a low point, with the line: “I be worried bout my daughter, I be worried bout Kim, But Saint is baby ‘Ye, I ain’t worried about him.”
