It looks as if Kim Kardashian was correct about the return of G.O.O.D Fridays, with Kanye releasing, deleting, and then rereleasing a better quality version of two new songs on Friday.
For those of you unaware/people I don't think this article is meant for, West and the rest of his G.O.O.D Music label-mates, as well as other music affiliates, released 15 songs between August and December of 2010 in a promotional effort for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy under the moniker G.O.O.D Fridays.
It looks as if Kanye will be rolling a similar campaign out for his highly-anticipated Swish album. Though the links were initially removed, Kanye assured his fans via Twitter that he was unhappy with the distortion in 'Real Friends' and would release the updated version as soon as he could, telling all who ripped the original version to "please rip the new one" and to "please, please erase the old one", citing he wasn't satisfied with the sound quality.
The first record, entitled, 'Real Friends', is an emotional monologue, bearing all the grievances that come with fame and friends. Ye recruits Ty Dolla $ign for the feature, lacing the minimalist production/laid-back drum pattern as if the song were his own.
The second song is a snippet of what eventually will be, 'No More Parties in LA', which features Kendrick Lamar and appears to be one previously referenced by Mr. West while he was working on MBDTF.
In the documentary, Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton by Stones Throw, Kanye is discussing his love for producer Madlib, and when discussing the material they had together, Ye recites "over the crib ya left ya Ray-Bans/my sheets still orange from ya spray tan. No more parties in LA. No more parties in LA".
Kanye has confirmed that this is a Madlib beat (intro by Ye), as well as citing Frank Dukes as the sample on 'Real Friends' and getting help from Boi-1da & Havoc on the drums & programming, respectively.
The prospect of future G.O.O.D Friday releases is an exciting one, as the anticipation of Swish builds, projected to drop February 11 as one of the biggest releases of 2016.
