Kanye West dropped another new tune over the weekend — "Lord Lord Lord" — for his ongoing G.O.O.D. Fridays MP3 series, in which Kanye has vowed to give away one free MP3 a week until Christmas. Quite noble, no? His nobility is still not in question on the latest G.O.O.D. Friday release. Like many other "GF" tracks, it's heavy on the guest spots. It's seven-plus minutes feature G.O.O.D Friday regular Charlie Wilson and his golden pipes, as well as two of hip hop's most respected names, Mos Def and Raekwon. Oh and Mr. Alicia Keys also came along for the ride. And like "GF" highlight, the feverish, ghoulish "Monster", Kanye West let's his friends really shine, without ever disappointing himself.
Obviously Mos Def and Raekwon are the stars here. With "Lord Lord Lord," Kanye West further emphasizes his role in this whole G.O.O.D. Fridays business; he is hip hop's curator and it really suits him.
West's new album Dark Twisted Fantasy is reportedly scheduled for a November 16 release date.
