Kanye West is about to go back to his roots and drop a compilation album with G.O.O.D. Music, the hip-hop production collective that he founded in 2004. His new track, “Theraflu,” which features DJ Khaled, is rumored to be the first big track from the album and if nothing else sounds like an attempt at this summer’s anthem.
In typical Kanye fashion, the rapper boasts about all of the luxury that success has afforded him (“Way too cold, I promise you’ll need some Theraflu,” – get it?) but also spends a few bars dwelling on the gossip surrounding him and the Amber Rose, Wiz Khalifa, Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries love triangle (rectangle? pentagon?).
And the whole industry wanna f-ck yo’ old chick
Only n-gga I got respect for is Wiz
And I’ll admit, I fell in love with Kim
‘Round the same time she had fell in love wit’ him
Well, that’s cool, baby girl, do ya thing
Lucky I ain’t have Jay drop him from the team
So, Kanye is saying that Amber Rose has clearly been around but he’s cool with her shacking up with Wiz Khalifa…ok. Way to put her on blast and show that he’s a little funky about her moving on to something legit. It’s also interesting to hear Kanye confirm rumors that he had serious involvement with Kim Kardashian — the “him” that she fell in love with of course being Kris Humphries who plays for the New Jersey Nets, a team that Jay-Z has part-ownership in. Cute jab, but sometimes I wonder what’s going on in Kanye’s head when it comes to putting his personal business out there. It’s clear that he loves the attention, but it might be time to find some new “bad chicks” to rap about.
And then there’s the actual music. Take a listen and let us know what you think in the comments!
