Two New Kanye West Songs Featuring Migos, Young Thug & A$AP Rocky Leak Online
"Kanye’s trying to find his creative voice again, and he has people there to help him get, and stay, on track."
Following reports that Kanye West had, allegedly, decamped to a mountain in Wyoming to record his new album (as you do), two new Ye tracks have leaked online.
The origins of both tracks are unclear, but fans are hoping that they're the first new tracks from the ninth Kanye album.
The first leaked song, ‘Hold Tight’, features all three members of Migos and Young Thug. Kanye’s voice is auto-tuned as he sings the hook in-between the features. Lyrically, Kanye suggests that he’s been “sniffing Miley Cyrus with Miley Cyrus,” while Young Thug namedrops two-time Olympic champion and WWE-legend Kurt Angle.
The second, ‘Euro (Switch Hands)’, features A$AP Rocky as the pair trade verses on top of an eerie, menacing sample. If this ever gets played live, the chorus is going to go off. (“Man, you got to hate it, man you got to hate it.”)
Listen to both, before they get pulled, below…
Let’s talk about Kanye, allegedly, heading up a mountain to record his new record. The initial report was broken by TMZ, who refused to name a source. Therefore, it’s best to take this story with a pinch of salt. However, TMZ weren’t the only publication reporting the story since, later in the year, Page Six cited another unnamed source (them again!) who claimed that Pusha T, a long term Kanye-collaborator, had joined Yeezy on top of the mountain.
Speaking to Page Six, the source said: “Pusha T has been visiting. He inspires Kanye to write. Kanye’s trying to find his creative voice again, and he has people there to help him get, and stay, on track. He’s still a little off and is trying to get himself back.”
Again, best to wait for official word from the man himself, but, since Kanye’s been so quiet these past few months – which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, for his sake - here’s hoping a new Kanye record isn’t too far off.
