To close things out, the rap social media chancellor revealed he was going to drop a new record that would have his recent sparring partner — Hot97’s Ebro Darden — numb from the “bars.”
I'm going to drop a song with a verse that will bring Ebro the closure he's been seeking
The bars 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
It's called Lift Yourself

After leaving his 28 million-plus Twitter followers on the edge of their seat for a full work day — with the lunch break — Kanye delivered and put up a new record named “Lift Yourself” on his website.
The song started off like College Dropout/Life of Pablo-era Yeezy; with a wailing songstress over top a gospel Hip Hop break. But when those highly anticipated bars come in, it was fully clear that Kanye West has been relishing in the earth-stopping attention he’s been getting thanks to his Twitter outbursts.
Devoid of any actual words, Kanye simply spit gibberish, “Poopy-di scoop
Scoop-diddy-whoop/Whoop-di-scoop-di-poop” as the quick cut came to a close.
It’s unlikely this will appear on his upcoming eighth studio album or collaboration project with Kid Cudi but consider this one of the biggest “gotcha!” moments in recent Hip Hop history. A 26-day late April Fools Day joke. Poopy-di scoop!

The song can be streamed on www.kanyewest.com for the time being.
Afterward, feel free to take a trip down memory lane to a past DXBreakdown that is more relevant than ever.
