Kanye West Gets Fans Excited With A New Track, Ends Up Being A 17-Minute Loop

by Taylor Ortega

Awww yeah! The Louis Vuitton Don is back with music that'll make you lose your min — Oh… hold on…

OK, uh, false alarm. Just go back to whatever you were doing. That's my bad. Sorry.

Kanye West did technically release a new song on his Soundcloud, but the content therein is infuriating, then hilarious, then infuriating and so on for a full 17 minutes.

The track, titled “Bed Yeezy Season 5,” is the soundtrack from the rapper/designer's Yeezy Season 5 show from New York Fashion Week, Elle reports.

In the event your eyeballs are still in tact and aren't, I don't know, hanging from the ends of your fingernails at this point, protect those suckers from yourself because Kanye's voice doesn't even make an appearance on the song.

That's right, Kanye West isn't even on this Kanye West song. But don't worry, you can still enjoy SEVENTEEN full minutes of the Dream singing a remix of the 2007 J. Holiday song “Bed,” so, don't get too bummed.

Full disclosure, there is a moment around minute seven or eight when you may become nostalgic for the original recording.

Don't worry, it will pass.

Perhaps the blame lies on us, the fans, for expecting something so soon after 2016's "The Life of Pablo." Kanye's had a busy year, for better or worse, and it'll probably be a long time before we hear anything new from him.

Ye recently announced plans to create his own line of beauty products and may have fences to mend with fellow rappers like Drake, whom he called out during several Saint Pablo Tour rants back in October.


In one rant, Kanye mentioned the "Tidal/Apple bullshit" that prevented his verse from appearing on Drake's song "Pop Style." In another, he dragged the Toronto native and fellow producer DJ Khaled.

Recently, Drake told DJ Semtex,

I think everybody has their own little things going on, I'm not really sure what he's referring to half the time, as in the same breath, I went from being… like working on a project with him, to him sort of publicly shitting on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much... when I hear that, I just distance myself from it. You know, all right if that's what it is I don't really even understand the point you're trying to make, but whatever it is that you're going through, I accept it, I don't respect it at all.

Call Drake, Kanye. You know where.

I'm not going to make a "Hotline Bling" joke because they are tired, and this is serious. Make it right.
