Kanye West Leaks Are Dropping From the Sky
Update: Due to legal reasons, these songs have been taken down.
Original Story: Amidst the pandemonium that was Kanye West's The Life of Pablo rollout and the seemingly endless tinkering there within, is a silver lining that should incite more excitement than any one or number of off-the-handle tweets. There is a well of unreleased Kanye West music out there; some are genesis or OG tracks for Pablo cuts while others are, in part, completely new. Take "Fall Out of Heaven" for example, which has emerged out of the internet's dark and cloudy abyss ahead of tomorrow's anticipated G.O.O.D. Friday release.
While Kanye and The-Dream have worked closely throughout the Pablo sessions, "Fall Out of Heaven" sounds incomplete or like a reference track, with Kanye garbling many of his lines, a few of which ended up on "Famous." Perhaps most noteworthy is the semi-diss "All night tryna dutty wine / Woke up my dick crooked as the Nike sign," that continues Kanye's assault on the footwear brand that kept him from pursuing his fashion-oriented dreams.
Among the other tracks floating to the top of the internet's perpetual Kanye coverage is a CD quality version of "Mama's Boyfriend," a track recorded during the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy sessions that Kanye originally rapped to the employees at Facebook. Additionally, there's "The Mind Is Powerful" featuring Swizz Beatz, a similarly tongue-biting exercise in verse building.
Oh, and there's more. Like a remix to "All Day" featuring Kendrick Lamar and OG versions of "Fade" and "FML," the latter of the two sporting a new Travis Scott feature. While there is little doubt that any given Kanye song goes through numerous changes and life stages, rarely are fans able to weigh one version against another.
A secondary take on "Wolves" complete with Sia and Vic Mensa portions sprung up midday yesterday, with the two new editions rounding out what might be an OG packaging of the album. For "Wolves" and "Fade" at least, earlier versions of the songs were heard during Yeezy Season runway shows, resulting in listeners wondering what evolution the song's had undergone, and where the originals were at. Listen to the group of leaked tracks below with possibly more following suit. Multiple Pablo tracklists are floating around suggesting there's plenty more cutting room scraps out there.
