At the end of a week in which he professed his love for Donald Trump and said something about “dragon blood,” Kanye West has put out some new music. “Lift Yourself” works around a gospel sample, builds in a bass-heavy beat, then descends into a farce as West starts spouting gibberish about Poopa Scoopas. If, as his tweet this morning suggested, Kanye was trying to send a message to Ebro Darden, then this is decent trolling. Either way, the sample’s pretty cool.
Following the release of “Lift Yourself,” Kanye debuted more new music with a politically charged song featuring T.I. called “Ye vs. The People.” Listen to that one here.
