This weekend Kanye West released the next track in the G.O.O.D. Fridays series, and, according to his Twitter account, finished his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Though he didn’t say anything about the new track (featuring frequent featurers Keri Hilson and Pusha T, along with GOOD Music’s Cyhi Da Prynce), he did Tweet about his new album cover, which has been ‘banned’ by Def Jam. It’s likely that Def Jam didn’t ban it as much as strongly, strongly discourage the cover. You can see why:
“So Nirvana can have a naked human being on they cover but I can’t have a PAINTING of a monster with no arms and a polka dot tail and wings?” he Tweeted. I wonder if he said this to Def Jam with a straight face.
No idea if “Take One For The Team” is on the album. But his first line here, “I figured out I’m not a nice guy” seems like a good opening album statement. Listen, and download it at kanyewest.com.
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is out 11/22.
