Kanye West Has Officially Released "XTCY" And It's Still Pretty Bad

Two weeks ago DJ Clark Kent leaked "XTCY", a new Kanye West song that the two made together. At the time, it was a pretty bad song. The noteworthy line in the song––apart from an ad-lib of "Scoop!" calling back to the execrable "Lift Yourself"––is the vaguely repulsive "You got a sister-in-law you'd smash? I got four of em". It's the first song West has released since his five-albums-in-five-weeks G.O.O.D. Music bonanza earlier this summer, when he released PUSHA-T's Daytona, Teyana Taylor's Keep That Same Energy, Nas's Nasir, his own record Ye, and his collaborative album with Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghosts.

Now, Kanye has released "XTCY" for real, and guess what! It's still pretty bad. The album artwork is a My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy-style illustration of the Kardashians, who Kanye would very much like to smash. Listen at your own peril, below.
