Kanye West digs deep on “Real Friends,” emoting on his difficulty maintaining a bond with those closest to him. “Couldn’t tell you how your daughter was,” he raps. “I couldn’t tell you how old your son is.” In a sense, this harkens to Ye’s classic line from “Welcome To Heartbreak” off of 808s & Heartbreak: “My best friend showed me pictures of his kids / And all I could show him was pictures of my cribs.”
“Real Friends” features Ty Dolla $ign on the hook and closes with a snippet of “No More Parties In LA” featuring Kendrick Lamar. According to Kim Kardashian, we can expect a new track from Kanye every Friday leading up to the album. Yeezy season is officially upon us. Share your thoughts in the DX Community.
