Spring may be here, but Kanye West just brought hip hop back to flu season. Fans were already gearing up for the highly touted Good Friday release of "Mercy," the first single from the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation, featuring 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Pusha T and Yeezy himself. But yesterday Hot 97's Funkmaster Flex jumped the gun and dropped the craziness that is "Theraflu."
The song features a brash Kanye West going in furiously over a schizophrenic soundscape from Hit-Boy, the production maestro behind the Throne's "N----- in Paris." Yeezy's bars are buzzworthy to say the least, as he addresses ex-wifey Amber Rose and her fiancé Wiz Khalifa, admits to falling in love with Kim Kardashian and throws a shot at her ex-husband, Nets baller Kris Humphries:
The whole industry wanna f--- ya old chick
Only n---- I got respect for is Wiz
And I’ll admit I fell in love with Kim
Around the same time she had fell in love with him
Lucky I ain’t have Jay drop him from the team
No wonder Flex was dropping so many bombs. The song also features vocal assists from DJ Khaled and DJ Pharris, but according to a tweet from Hit-Boy himself, it's a Kanye song. No word on whether it's for the G.O.O.D. Music compilation, an upcoming Kanye West album, or elsewhere, but we have a feeling we'll find out soon, considering the feverish reaction this song's getting.
