There’s never a dull moment when Kanye West is around. The mercurial rapper-producer crashed Yo Gotti’s album release party at 10AK in Los Angeles on Tuesday (Feb. 23) where he premiered a new song and delivers another epic rant.
According to XXL, Yeezy played a new song called “Closest Thing to Einstein,” which features Sampha who you may remembered him from Drake’s track, “Too Much.” Over Jay Z’s classic beat from “Where I’m From,” ‘Ye raps about a myriad of topics including how he’s being perceived on social media.
“I know I’m the most influential, that Time cover was just confirmation / This generation’s closest thing to Einstein, and don’t worry about me, I’m fine,” he raps.
This is the first post-The Life of Pablo song that Kanye has unveiled thus far and there’s no word on where the track will end up. It’s our hope that Kanye will drop the song on Friday as part of his weekly music series G.O.O.D. Fridays (*crossing our fingers*).
Meanwhile, Kanye also went on an angry rant. In several clips, which you can watch below, the “Real Friends” rhymer addressed the controversial line about Taylor Swift on “Famous,” gossip blogs disrespecting rap gods, pushing buttons and changing the paradigm with Tidal.
