Kanye West, ‘New God Flow': Pusha T Guests on G.O.O.D. Music Single
Kanye West has blessed us all with “New God Flow,” another track from his eagerly anticipated G.O.O.D. Music compilation, Cruel Summer. The song (listen below) amounts to a triumphant, defiant, anthemic statement from ‘Ye and special guest Pusha T, who kicks things off with a doozy of a line: “I believe there is a god above me / I’m just the god of everything else.”
Yeezy couldn’t have said it better himself, though he certainly tries, dropping a killer third verse.
“Went from most hated to the champion god flow,” West raps. “I guess that’s a feeling only me and Lebron know.”
In another line, Kanye managed to reference a rap icon, a civil rights leader, the unwitting face of America’s most notorious race riot and a dearly departed R&B songstress.
“I’m living three dreams,” he raps, “Biggie Smalls’, Dr. Kings’, Rodney King’s / ‘Cuz we can’t get along, no resolution/ ‘Til we drown all these haters, rest in peace to Whitney Houston.”
Musically, “New God Flow” pairs a banging beat with a soulful piano riff, further building anticipation for Cruel Summer, which drops Aug. 7.
