On Sunday night, Kanye West performed "Runaway" — a possible new single from his upcoming album — at MTV's Video Music Awards with Pusha T. We put up a video of the performance on Sunday night, but it has since been taken down. As if waiting for the cue, the internet has brought us the CD quality version of "Runaway", and it sounds even better than before. Listen to the track below:
His new album, reportedly called Dark Twisted Fantasy (previously known as Good Ass Job), should be out on November 16 and will feature production from "[Kanye] West himself, Q-Tip, RZA, DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Madlib, DJ Toomp, Swizz Beatz, Lex Luger, Soulja Boy Tell 'Em and Justin Vernon," and confirmed guest artists include "Dwele, Drake, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, Beyoncé Knowles, Charlie Wilson, Justin Vernon, Big Sean, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, Rick Ross, T.I. Tony Williams, Mos Def, Pusha T, and Swizz Beatz." Dark Twisted Fantasy is basically a welcome back party to hip hop for Kanye West after delving into some art pop in 2008. And for the rest of us, it's a who's who in popular rap music.
