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!

    I miss the 80s where men rapped about battling each other and how masculine they were. Sure they crossed the line (and still do) with homophoic lyrics, putting women down. But it wasn’t this non-stop ranting about clothes, clothes and more clothes. Now Kanye and the rest of these chicks w/dycks are more feminine than ever. Clothes and more clothes. They know more about fashion than the women that wear them. Bonified B_Y_T_C_H_E_S!

    He won’t die happy until he has his racially ambiguous woman with the gigantic ass. no matter her history.

    hahahahahahaa, you aint never lied…lol…damn can a sista get a break? or a black man? *tear

  • mamareese

    I need Kanye to admit he may like boys…..cause he sure does act like a woman an awful lot. So touchy and super sensitive about rejection….that aint cute.

  • LN

    ^^^All sorts of wrong.

    I’m not the biggest fan of rap, but I’d take rap about clothes and gossip over lyrics that glorify violence, misogyny, and homophobia.
    But even the so-called rapper-turned-fashion mogul still dabbles in the occasional chauvinistic and homophobic violent rants.

    Why can’t Kanye get some of that love you all showed Naomi Campbell!?!! “shrugz”

    The song was produced by Hit-Boy- the same guy behind “Niggas In Paris”…WACK!!!

    So basically he admits that what Amber said about Kim Kardashian being a homewrecker was true. Basically Kim got in the picture and caused her and Kanye to break up. Then Kanye’s with Kim while Amber is still single and hurt. Then Kim and Kanye break up or something and she dates Kris Humpries while Amber is dating Wiz. Then Amber tells the whole world that Kim was a homewrecker but then retracts what she said. And now we have Kanye admitting that what Amber basically said was the truth after all. Kim Kardashian will never find happiness with her hoe antic ways. Amber was a stripper but she’s got common sense to not take a taken man! I have so much more respect for Amber than I do for Kim Hoedashian.

  • Mina

    And since Kim easily moved on from Kris, this song also confirms that her marriage was a shame. I mean, seriously, she was still messing around with Kanye when she was “married” to Kris. SMDH!!

    Nope, I think he’s as str8 as 6′clock.

    Kayne was a momma’s boy. His dad didn’t spend enough time with him to harden him into a man.

  • habby

    The fact that tmz reports that he is now dating Kim, shows that Amber Rose was telling the truth. They were both cheating on their partners. I believe Kim and Kanye deserve each other.

  • Terri

    Imma need for ya’ll to develop some context clues! When did it say that she was with him. It only said he fell in love with her. It didn’t say she reciprocated. O.o #readabook

    I feel sorry for Kim, Kanye is a musical genius but especially since his mother died the attitude he’s displayed to women in his life and in his music has got worse, very bitter, and vindictive. Can imagine Kanye smiling and hugging you one second then throwing a fit and demanding you take off the designer clothes he bought you the next!

    Silly kim probably thinks she is using him but he will chew her up and spit her out and spew it all out over his next album! Amber and ‘Blame Game’ part 2.

    Two egos like that can’t co-exist together!One will destroy the other…if this is for real and not a publicity stunt for his upcoming album and her upcoming show, hmm…
