Kanye West Releases G.O.O.D. Music's "Mercy" Track

Update: Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Big Sean and Pusha T kick off the return of "G.O.O.D. Fridays" with a new cut, which you can stream for free.

It appears as though Kanye West couldn't quite wait until Good Friday (April 6) to restart on his "G.O.O.D. Fridays" series.

Instead, fans were treated on Thursday (April 5) at 8:00 PM to "Mercy," which features West, 2 Chainz, Big Sean and Pusha T. The song serves as the first single off the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation, which was recently recorded in international recording studios.

On the track, West reaches new levels of braggadocio, boasting, “I threw suicides on that private jet / You know what that means, I’m fly to death /  I step in the Def Jam building like I’m the shit / Tell them give me $50 million or I’ma quit / Most rappers taste level ain’t even at my waste level / Turn up the bass level till it’s at your face level.”

West previously released the track “TheraFlu” featuring DJ Khaled and DJ Pharris. And while initial reports were that the song would appear on an upcoming Khaled project, it now looks like “TheraFlu” will most likely land on the G.O.O.D. Music compilation album and/or a future Kanye West solo effort.

West is currently streaming “TheraFlu” for free on KanyeWest.com. The track alludes to a tryst with socialite Kim Kardashian and takes an overt shot at her ex-husband, New Jersey Nets power forward, Kris Humpries. As for “Mercy,” the single is currently available for purchase via iTunes. Stream the track below.

    Lmao this is the ONLY site on the web that is even remotely frontin on this. I dont think ya'll understand how lame you sound hatin on this shit. If you dont like this you: A)Get No Pussy B)Get No Money C)Are a stubborn ass fuck that wants EVERY rapper to sound like Joel Ortiz over a primo beat D)Are a hater that will like this song two months from now

      Fuck outta here nigga. Big Sean was FLOWING. You dont have to say a trillion words to get your point across. That assquake shit may sound like bull to you but its actually pretty clever. NO ONE has ever said that shit in a party track b4. This nigga fit the track perfectly. And Kanye merked that flow. Shit did exactly what it needed to do. You dont kno shit about painting a picture. Giving people a movie in a song. About making people feel you. You just have a one track mind. You have your ears tunned specificly to word count and SEEMINGLY complex metaphors. Sad... Oh and btw, even if Joel spazed on this shit, NO DJ would spin that shit in the club. There is a time and place for everything you close minded fuck.

    • Just A Person

      Or E) you could be a person who likes the fuck out of this beat and will wait for real MCs like Joell Ortiz(who you mentioned) and the rest of slaughterhouse to wreck this shit as they've done with several "club/swag/pussy-gettin/money-gettin nigga" beats. Stop generalizing and assuming dickhead. Why does a song with a bussin ass beat always gotta have dum lyrics? and why are people lame for wanting better lyricism on a bangin ass beat like this....you can talk fly and have ill lyrics. So people have a right to say this shit is wack when 2 niggas out of the 4(big sean and kanye) is rapping wack as fuck.

  • Anonymous

    Pusha T was tight 2Chainz Sean was cool and Ye was what you thought he was hot he's never the same that's why he's so dope

  • ETK

    all you so-called Kanye fans clearly don't know him that well I guess, know that he switches it up on EVERY album... quit yearnin for the old Kanye, he's gonna keep trying to push the envelope and be experimental with another sound every time.. some are gon work(MBDTF), some aren't(808s...) but like said below, if you like his old shit, buy his old albums. only way you're gonna find grace with yourself.

    • Anonymous

      been a fan of his old and new stuff but this shit is wack

    • ^^^^^^

      How is this beat generic???? Just cuz it has 808s in it? This shit is innovative as fuck, dumb ass. Oh and btw, niggas is FLOWIN on this shit.

    • jep34

      Whatever you say Gone...realize that were complaining because you say hes experimenting with new sounds but really hes gone from the top producer in the game to copying/rapping over the most generic sounding southern beats there are. Why wouldnt we be upset? Who wants their favorite artist and producer, who was number one, to change for the worse?

    • Anonymous

      Word these niggas sounding like some scorned hoes.

    If yall want ye old shit, buy his old album. Dont get mad when dude tryna advance.

  • mbongeni

    Guys this is the first single it has to be ignorant and classy...i love this song! its fire people are just haters.. The album is a compilation it has to cater to everyone.. Dumb 'hip-hop heads'

  • JETSGo6

    I know its hard to judge certain shit, at times without coming off like a troll but its okay this is lame. Push verse was real tough & the transition on Ye's part was real sick but overall the song is lame.

    • Anonymous

      Kanye has changed in the last 2 years and its definitely not for the better. This shit is average and so is everything else hes done recently ^ your opinion. I enjoy WTT and Theraflu & MBDTF is a good album. Maybe you should stop complaining and just realize that everybody doesn't feel the same way you do about his music.

    • jep345

      Its not hard to judge dont worry. The people that say you a hater are just irrational or dont know their rap. I am a huge Ye fan, as most hip hop fans are, but still can admit when he puts out average stuff. WTT was average for Kanye West. Its a cd you play for a few weeks then never come back to it. College dropout, late registration, graduation.....classics. I still listen tto all three to this day. Kanye has changed in the last 2 years and its definitely not for the better. This shit is average and so is everything else hes done recently

    2 Chainz had the best first on here..didn't expect that before listening....the beat is nice too....4/5

  • haitianjack

    beats arent lyrics i mean

  • haitianjack

    its cool....beat knocks to me....raps average. production on a song doesent have to be intricate for it to be tight....beats are lyrics, if the sound is appealing to the ears then its tight...simple as that...i dont like when the beat switches up tho...

I love the WU, tribe called quest, mod def, kweli and all them but they're not selling records or making money or have a global impact like Ye does. Some ppl just speak with out thinking about the business side of it. THIS TRACK GONE BE PLAYED EVERYWHERE this some HOOD SHIT

    G.O.O.D music or G.A.Y music? shady 2.0 will wreck this whole crew

    • yeah...

      that would happen you dipshit, since Kanye and Em are cool, kanye's cool with slaughterhouse, Big Sean and Royce are cool. you're a fucking idiot.

    kanyes only fans are uneducated young blacks so im not to concerned about the shit this guys trying to stir.. hell get his ass handed to him

  • iddle1

    this is the simplest shit I have ever fucking heard. I think my IQ went down listening to. I will still buy the album because I understand this is a single but I will never ever listen to this cheap imitation hip-hop. Oh and Kanye, why do you always give yourself beat changes to enhance your verse? This song is a -100/5. FUCK THIS FUCKING SONG.

  • ...

    2 chainz went the fuck In

  • yocuz

    Kanyes plan: hes a smart dude, He wants to show all of the YM dickriders whats up. Then they will convert to G.O.O.D. right. After he makes all these bangers, he'll slowly start making conscious hip hop. Hows that for a conspiracy theory?

    • Hmmm

      That's why the entire CM/YM crew is still worked up about a line from a song that came out over a year ago.

    • Anonymous

      man im sick of all you good music fans and your lives revolving around young money. them niggas got you shook. and them young money fans aint even thinking about yo niggas. this may be hard for you to grasp but kanye is the last nigga worried about young money or any other record label. just because kanye made one song like this doesnt mean he's not conscious anymore. you niggas are fucking turtles in the mind.h happens every album. one song drops and you conclude that this is what the entire albums will sound like, them the album drops and its nothing like you predicted. just because you're threatened by young money doesnt mean you have to make excuses and talk about them on every article. shit is irritating. its time for yall to swallow the truth that young money aint going no fucking where. and neither are their fans. its possible to like more than one artists... you dont have to switch sides. not everyone is a narrow minded as you good music bitch niggas fighting this imaginery war against young money. i swear rap fans get stupider each and every year. you been praying for YM's demise for 3 years now! let that shit go nigga!

  • BCM

    It's the lead/promo single so of course it's going to reflect the sounds of what's big in hip hop & receiving the most airplay I'm more interested in what they cooked up for the rest of the album looking for that Jay Elect feature

  • Tiiz

    This song has A$AP Rocky written all over it, and who did they choose?? 2 CHAIINNZZZZ! smh

  • Almar

    2 Chainz gets alot of Flack from people but this dude just went in on all these cats.

  • 1 view on the dis situation would be...

    Sean - Did what does - did well. Pusha - Dude is horrible - wanted to skip. Kanye - Disjointed, try to rap in higher key - forgettable rhymes 2Chainz - Best verse - he sound most comfortable. Beat is catchy - until beat change (scarface "chords") which isnt needed and is boring.

  • Thesecommentssuck

    Idk how a beat's southern but there's nothing wrong with "southern" beats (except for Lex Luger). The difference is these guys, besides 2chainz, can go in on it lyrically.

  • Jus10

    This may be a hit, but nobody's gonna remember it in 10 years (maybe even less).

  • Jus10

    I thought this was a "new" song? Sounds like the same rehash I've heard millions of times from every other commercial act.

    • Michael

      I MEAN ITS NOT WHAT I EXPECTED FROM THE PERSON WH0 MADE MY BEAUTIFUL DARK FANTSY ..BUT I SEE LIKE WHEN HAM WAS DROP FROM WTT IT WAS THE WACKEST SONG ON DERE...KANYE RELEASES THE WACKEST SONG FOR A SINGLE AND KILLS WEN THE ALBUM DROPS....

      Kanye's music doesn't have a genre. he's gonna do south music, conscious sounding music, grown-man jazz-playing music, and those weird trippy beats he does every now and then too. fuck, he got a dubstep sampled track on WTT. niggas who cryin about the old kanye, they about to wait in the cold for a long time

Faggot ass nigga. Pusha T is nice. The hell is wrong with you? I'm not listening to this song cause of Big Sean and especially that wack nigga 2 Chainz. Anyone who supports 2 Chainz and gives these blind sheep responses as to why need their faces to be embraced by a brick, a pillowcase full of cans of pepsi, bag of nickel, mayo jars, etc.
