Yeezy teased fans with a taste of Saint Pablo at a private party back in February, and now the (probably final) six-minute studio version of the song (below) has been tacked onto the end of TLOP. The streaming service Tidal lists Kanye, Jay-Z and Sampha as composers on the track, alongside five other peeps.
Saint Pablo sees Kanye discuss his alleged personal debt, his representation in the media, and, well, Kanye.
“I know I’m the most influential / That TIME cover was just confirmation,” he raps on the track. “This generation’s closest thing to Einstein / But don’t worry about me, I’m fine.”
Saint Pablo arrives shortly after Yeezy plotted the US dates of his Saint Pablo tour, which is currently lacking any Aussie shows. The track also comes after Kanye dropped the final mix of Champions, the first single off his forthcoming G.O.O.D. Music Cruel Winter project, earlier this week.
Stream Saint Pablo in full via Tidal below (if you’re a subscriber), or stream a preview via Tidal or Apple Music if you’re not.
