Ressurecting the G.O.O.D. Fridays campaign he did in 2010 leading up to his critically acclaimed album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Yeezy has treated us to another new track. Real Friends features Ty Dollar $igns with production credits going to Mr. West himself, Frank Dukes, and Boi-1da. We also got a snippet of the track No More Parties in LA featuring Kendrick Lamar. All these G.O.O.D. Friday releases are expected to be on the track list for his upcoming seventh studio album SWISH, scheduled for release February 11th.
Last Friday, Kanye dropped FACTS, an aggressive and self-applauding diss track firing shots at Nike, Drake, and his critics in general. Chanting Yeezy Yeezy just jumped over Jumpman! West references 2015, a year that brought much success to him and his wife’s ever-growing empire.
If you remember he initiated 2015 in true Kanye fashion by rushing the stage at the Grammy’s when Beck received the award for Album of the Year. Around this time we saw the much hyped release of his YeezyBoost collaboration with ADIDAS. A line of kicks that flew off the shelves. With reselling prices on Ebay anywhere from $500 to $3,000 – I’ve come to the conclusion that I may never cop a pair.
Closing the year, he won Shoe of The Year for the Yeezy Boost 350.
However, for him, surely none of these events can compare to the birth of Saint West.
Real Friends is a very emotional track. With ‘Ye expressing his struggle with trust issues and managing to stay in touch with the family and people who were there on his way up. Some of them being the same people who hit him up for money. The realest line being an extortion claim against his own cousin.
“I had a cousin that stole my laptop that I was f*cking bitches on
paid that ni*ga $250,000 just to get it from him”
Everyone agrees, Real Friend’s sound brings us back to the days of Graduation, a revisitation that I personally love. All these tracks mentioned have without a doubt ignited much anticipation for SWISH and the G.O.O.D. Fridays to come.
Tell us what you think of the new Kanye content and be sure to share Teal Cheese with your friends! I would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year. I am really looking forward to future contributions and progress with Teal Cheese. Thanks fam. – Amanda
