Kanye West is back and not alone. He has featured Kendrick Lamar in “No More Parties in LA,” released just today.
Produced by Madlib and utilizing a sample from Ghostface Killah‘s “Mighty Healthy,” the two MC’s trade some real Hollywood tales, warning one another of the dangers of a lifestyle filled with so much glamour and glitz.
Kanye takes a moment and reflects on how he began his career as a “backpack n—– with some luxury tastebuds.” The he takes another moment to think about how his famous family–that is, Kim Kardashian and their two children North and Saint–will be able to deal under the intense spotlight of fame: “I be worried about my daughter, I be worried ’bout Kim / but Saint is baby ‘Ye, I ain’t worried about him.”
“No More Parties in LA” dropped a few days later than expected, because according to wife Kim, Kanye had to fly to Italy for a fitting of his third Yeezy Season collection. But I guess he wasn’t looking to waste more than absolutely necessary: “This is the 1st song ever with Kanye & Kendrick Lamar! He just landed & headed straight to the studio to finish it!!!”
