After his wife, Kim Kardashian, promised new music
from the 38-year-old rapper every Friday, he delivered with both "Real Friends"
and a preview of another song titled "No More Parties in L.A.," featuring Kendrick Lamar.
In the melancholy "Real Friends," Kanye raps about having "trust issues" and strained family relationships. But the most eyebrow-raising snippet is about having sex tapes on his computer, which his song lyrics claim his cousin stole from him.
"I had a cousin that stole my laptop that I was f**king bi***es on/Paid that n***a $250,000 just to get it from him. Real friends?" he raps.
He also references what appears to be the same cousin earlier in the song, rapping, "I have a cousin who's a deadbeat/I hate family reunions."
ET can confirm that a sex tape of the rapper was being shopped around in 2012.
Kanye's release of his new music didn't come without some drama on Friday. After initially posting the tracks on SoundCloud, he took them down, tweeting that he wasn't happy about the sound quality and pleading for listeners to erase the first version.
It's unknown whether the two new tracks will be on Kanye's highly anticipated new album Swish
, which doesn't have an official release date. Last month, Kanye tweeted that he's finishing up his new album
In November, West sat down with radio host Big Boy
and said that Swish
will be a "sonic painting," and "gets better and better every week."
"We did visit Lamar today, and we played him his new album," Kim said last month about her sister Khloe Kardashian's ex, who's currently undergoing rehab at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
. "And then when I was done I said, ‘Did you like the music?' and he said, 'Loved it.'"
