Kanye West may have acted a fool at the Grammy Awards, but we should have know that is was anticipation to the start of Yeezy season.  A track has leaked online that is supposed to be the first track on his upcoming album.  The dark, moody track is laced with autotune and has the rapper doing a lot more singing.  The song seems to have West reflecting on his wild ways and how they have led him to hurt those he loves as the weight of the world comes down on him.  The production is pretty minimalist (especially after Yeezus) and may leave some longtime West fans wanting a little more turn up.  The emotional impact seems to be the point though, as the beat is a good match for the somber lyrics.

This new album seems to be shaping up to be 808’s and Heartbreaks, Part II.
