Kanye West seems to be getting more attention for his Twitter these days than his musical ouput which is a crying shame seeing the quality of his GOOD Fridays project. GOOD Fridays basically consists of Kanye giving away a brand new song for free for his fans every Friday (you can get all the songs so far here). Anyway, the newest is called Lord, Lord, Lord and includes such rap royalty as Raekwon and Mos Def. Kanye's beats are second to none as always but he's gone for something really different on this one, it's really funky and mellow. The song could probably do without Swizz Beats’ section but Mos Def’s opening verse is great and more than makes up for it. These tracks are making me really excited for his new album. I mean, if the throw-aways are this good then how great must the actual final product be? Especially seeing as appearances on the album include RZA, Pete Rock, Madlib and, bizarrely, Justin Vernon. Anyway, the new album is out in November and is currently called Dark Twisted Fantasy.
