Kanye West Drops “30 Hours,” Announces New Tracklist for ‘The Life of Pablo’
Now that Kanye West's album The Life of Pablo is set to drop any moment now, Yeezy has reinstated G.O.O.D. Fridays with a brand new song "30 Hours."
Info on production and other vocalists on the track is scant right now (Questlove revealed on Twitter that Karriem Riggins is one of the producers on the track), but we wouldn't be surprised if Frank Dukes wasn't involved in this one like he was for "Real Friends." The sample is "Answers Me" by the legendary Arthur Russell.
Like "Real Friends," the new track is deeply personal, showcasing a somewhat muted Kanye even as he talks about humorous shit ("Well I guess a blowjob is better than no job"). He also mentions his ex at the beginning of the song - "My ex say she gave me the best years of her life / I saw a recent picture of her, I guess she was right" - but it's unclear whether he's talking about Amber Rose or his distant muse Alexis Phifer.
Kanye also announced that he's revising the tracklist for The Life of Pablo and adding a couple tracks to the album last minute such as a new version of "Facts," a song called "I Miss The Old Kanye," and another track called "Low Lights." "No More Parties" was originally taken off the tracklist, but is now back on.
'Ye said the album is being mastered as we speak and will be out later today.
Along with new music, Kanye premiered songs from Young Thug and Vic Mensa at his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show in MSG. Whether his issue with Taylor Swift will hold up the album released remains to be seen, but although Swift's spokesperson said Tay Swizzy isn't about the lines about her on "Famous," 'Ye says they were here idea in the first place.
