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!).

The song debuted on Kanye's website and was dropped by Hot 97's Funkmaster Flex as well.

Here's the full tracklist for Cruel Summer, due in stores Sept. 18. More 'Ye after the list.
