Kanye Debuts New Song With Sampha, Defends Jay Z & TIDAL

  /  02.24.2016

Whether it’s a new rant or new track, Kanye West has a lot to get off his chest.

During Yo Gotti’s album release party for The Art of Hustle last night (February 23), ‘Ye debuted a new song at 1OAK in L.A. With several songs on his latest album backed by male crooners, including The-Dream, The Weeknd and Ty Dolla $ign, the one-off track features another in British singer Sampha, most known for his work with SBTRKT and on Drake’s “Too Much.” Possibly titled “Closest Thing To Einstein,” the track samples Jay Z’s “Where I’m From” and includes lines like, “This generation’s closest thing to Einstein/So don’t worry about me, I’m fine.”

Kanye also addressed his recent Twitter rants. “People tryna say I’m going crazy on Twitter/My friend’s best advice was to stay low.”

Then ironically stood on the DJ booth to rant about Taylor Swift and the “famous” lyric incident, he insisted, “I talked with my wife about it, and I said, ‘How do you feel about this Taylor line?’”

He then went on to clear the air and come to Jay Z and Tidal’s defense after exclusively premiering The Life of Pablo on the streaming service. “Do you know what Hov had to go through to make music for y’all?” he said. “Y’all have Blueprint 1 but y’all act like Tidal wack. That man fought to buy a streaming company.”

Listen to the new track above and Kanye expressing his thoughts, again, below.
