Chi-Town's stunner has released an anthem. Folks have been whispering about Kanye West's upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation album for quite some time now. Then 'Ye announced he'd be dropping "Mercy" on Good Friday and Def Jam put up an imposing banner on its website.

But plans appeared to have changed. Late Wednesday night, Funkmaster Flex dropped "Theraflu," a West and DJ Khaled track which may (or may not) be the lead single off the compilation.

West addresses rumors he was upset with Wiz Khalifa, the rapper who is engaged to Amber Rose, Kanye's ex-girlfriend. Judging by the lyrics on "Theraflu," he's (sort of) not holding a grudge:

"And the whole industry want to f*** your old chick
Only n**** I got respect for is Wiz
And I admit I fell in love with Kim
'Round the same time she fell in love with him
Well that's cool, babygirl do your thing
Lucky I ain't had Jay drop him from the team"

(Kim is Kim Kardashian, and the "him" is Kris Humphries, as Jay-Z is a part owner of the New Jersey Nets, Humphries' team.)

The song is produced by Hit-Boy, the 24-year-young phenomenon behind West and Jay-Z's Watch the Throne banger "N****s in Paris." Hit-Boy was in the studio with West and Ricky Anderson on Wednesday (celebrating perhaps?):

RapRadar editor Elliot Wilson tweeted Wednesday that the hook on the track comes courtesy of Bad Boy Records' Ma$e and LL Cool J.

It's a G.O.O.D. time to be a hip hop fan again.
