On Thursday, Kanye West stopped the world and got them all to tune in to what was essentially his listening party for The Life of Pablo. Immediately, two things stuck out: one, Kanye was back to more traditional rap songs and rapping, and two, he’d cut songs and added new material seemingly in the hours leading up to the show. “No More Parties in LA” was a glaring omission, but, with “Fade” also seemingly left off the album, it was clear ‘Ye had some tracks he liked, but just didn’t like for the album.
Friday, after another Twitter rant, Kanye backed up that notion with the return of G.O.O.D. Fridays and the release of “30 Hours” and a brand new tracklist for the album.

Like much of Kanye’s material, he’s all over the place on the new track, touching on ex girlfriends and even harking back to his earliest Roc-A-Fella days rapping for Jay and Cam.
“I remember rapping for Jay and Cam
Young producer just trying to get his flows off
I remember being nervous to do Victoria’s Secret
Til I pictured everybody wit’ they clothes off”
The song looks to be a late addition to what will be the final version of Pablo. Not only did we just get a new track, but we’re getting the whole album. That’s two really G.O.O.D. Friday treats indeed.
