Kanye West certainly knows how to get press. A few short hours after it was revealed that he wouldn't be attending the MTV Video Music Awards, the rapper drops a helluva distraction: "Clique," his new single with Jay-Z and Big Sean.
The song -- which was teased in a leaked snippet -- is off Cruel Summer, the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation. It's produced by Hit-Boy, so it's no surprise that the drums have indeed showed up in full force.
Notable lyrics: Kanye bragging about Kim's sex tape (with Ray-J...), bragging about hanging out with former CIA director George Tenet, Jay-Z mean-mugging snitches, Big Sean not sleeping for nine days, Big Sean shouting out 2 Chainz for no reason (no reason is needed!).
