West posted the track to Soundcloud.
Kanye West just dropped his outsized version of a brag-filled New Year’s Eve Facebook status ” a new track called “Facts”.
For the second year in a row, West chose New Year’s to release new music, but it’s unclear if the three-and-a-half minute track will appear on his forthcoming album Swish, expected sometime in 2016.
The new track opens with a sample of “Dirt and Grime” by Father’s Children before West lists off some of his biggest achievements of the past 12 months.
“Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy, they line up for days… I ain’t dropped the album but the shoes went platinum,” he says taking multiple swipes at Nike while praising his own collaboration with Adidas.
As well as referencing Drake (“Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy just jumped over Jumpman”) and giving wife #KimKardashian’s Kimoji a mention (“Plus Kimoji just shut down the app store”), West takes aim at Bill Cosby: “Do anybody feel bad for Bill Cosby? Did he forget the names just like Steve Harvey?”
He also takes a moment to reaffirm his intention to run for president: “2020, I’ma run the whole election.”
The track was first hinted at by Kardashian in a tweet earlier in the day before West released it via his Soundcloud account.
