Kanye West “All Day” Snippet Leaks

Since the release of Yeezus, folks have been on the edge of their seats anticipating the next drop from “Rap’s resident Laureate.” When crafting an album, Kanye West evokes the feeling of Warhol, Abramovic, or Hirst. The sonic artist taps the aesthetic of these visual and performance aficionados, implementing a workshop of hands all focused on one ideal: presenting the best in Kanye or the best in the next evolution of Kanye. An evolution that may bring to mind Nicki Minaj and her notorious “Lookin Ass N*gga” track. It’ll be interesting to see what folks have to say about Kanye’s use of the word.

The snippet of his new single is exactly that: a foray into the world of “Kanye to the…” This iteration of Kanye West is a few rungs below “The Luis Vuitton Don”— not on the same ladder of course— occupying a space of decadence, revelry, and coital exploits. This is that shit talking, boisterous, and lascivious Kanye West. A Kanye chock-full of “I think he misquoted the wrong movie” punchlines, that still hit hard like Chuck Norris kicks to the throat. “Isn’t homie married, with a kid… so how the hell is he saying any of this shit?” verses. Should we expect anything less since it’ll be released on Roc-a-fella/Def Jam, aka a return to the “Jiggy Era?”

In the clip below, courtesy of someone walking past a studio session with their phone in their pocket, or was it the friend of the side joint that French wanted to stunt for in the studio so she recorded a voice memo when he pulled up the new Kanye West collab he’s been gushing about courtesy of some random audio file cruising the net today, we get a first listen to Kanye West’s “All Day.”

If it sounds a little bit on the pop side, you can expect a departure from Kanye’s current existential state (as is the case with every album or body of work he puts out). In a recent interview with GQ, Kanye mentions “All Day” being his first single and his process when he transitions from record to record:

I think just my usual pattern is like that. It’s like a pendulum. The pendulum gains momentum by swinging in the other direction. Even lyrically, I think about certain lines that I say on my new single, which is called “All Day”, that usually Jay would say, but Jay’s not on there. So I say, All day, *****, it’s Ye, *****. Shopping for the winter, it’s just May, *****. Ball so hard, man, this **** cray, *****. You ain’t getting money unless you got eight figures. Right? Jay would have said that. And then eventually I would have came in with, like, whatever I come in with. But the balance of a meal is that when people walk in, they want water first. People definitely weren’t getting water first on Yeezus. I do fight with myself to say, “Keep fighting.” But also, you know, you can’t win every single fight. It’s a long war, and if you’re out there trying to, like, blow up every single building, you won’t win the war.

Stay tuned. “All Day” is speculated to release this August as the first single of Kanye’s upcoming and still untitled album.
