If you remember a few weeks ago, Kanye West came out of nowhere and gave DJ Clark Kent the green light to premiere a new song on Twitter called “XTCY” after the two were hanging out in the studio that night. The song, which was released via WeTransfer, was presumably a leftover from his Ye recording sessions as Kanye teased the song as part of the tracklisting back in May, but it never made the final cut on his album. Well fast forward to today, and Kanye has finally made the record available on all streaming platforms.
As you recall, the song made headlines for its questionable lyrics, with Kanye addressing how hot his sister-in-laws are. “You got sick thoughts? I got more of ’em/ You got a sister in law you would smash? I got four of them,” Ye spits. As for the song’s cover art, it finds an animated photo of the Kardashian/Jenner sisters from Kylie’s 21st birthday party, which finds most of them giving the middle finger to the camera.
Available now on iTunes, take a listen to the CDQ version and let us know what you think. Look for new music from Kanye West & Chance The Rapper to be on the way as well (peep last night’s photo here).

Now let me see you back, back, back, back
Time to get the bag, bag, bag, bag
We don’t throw stones, we throw stacks
That’s why they goin’ mad, mad, mad, Max
If you don’t say your name then I won’t ask
She got a smartphone, but a dumb ass
I thought of all this on Ecstasy
