Last night, Funkmaster Flex debuted “Theraflu,” a brand-new out-of-nowhere solo track from Kanye West. The track features DJ Khaled, and beyond his pitched-up bellowing and Flex’s tags and explosions, there’s a lot standing in the way of actually hearing the song. But it’s a seriously strong performance, all hard snarls over a bleepy late-’90s-style beat. And it also finds Kanye getting surprisingly personal, at least for a couple of lines, about his long-rumored relationship with Kim Kardashian. Listen to it at kanyewest.com.
Kanye’s also planning to resurrect his G.O.O.D. Fridays MP3 series tomorrow, on the actual Good Friday, by releasing “Mercy,” which will feature Big Sean, Pusha T, and 2 Chainz.
UPDATE: Kanye’s changed the name of the track to “Way Too Cold.” Here’s the new artwork:
