In the fall of 2010, as Kanye West was preparing to release My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy into the world, he spent a few months releasing a new song every Friday as part of his G.O.O.D. Friday series. This was a ridiculously exciting time to be following music; you’d start getting excited Friday morning and then rush to a computer when you saw that the new one was out. Well, maybe Kanye is ready to recapture that feeling. This morning, his wife Kim Kardashian tweeted that Kanye will release new music “#EveryFriday,” presumably in the lead-up to his mysterious and long-awaited album SWISH. And if my calculations are correct, today is Friday, which means we’ll be getting a new Kanye song sometime today. Observe:

Of course, that means the series might already be underway, since Kanye released the deeply underwhelming new track “FACTS” in the dwindling hours of New Years Eve last week. And speaking of “FACTS,” Kanye went back to his long-dormant Twitter earlier this morning to assure the world that he was not, in fact, dissing LeBron James on that song:
The media tried to make it seem like I was downplaying LeBron on my song FACTS which I would never do, Lebron is fam bottom line.

So: Does Kanye have another “Monster” in him? We can hope!
