Kanye West Teams With Mos Def, Raekwon on ‘Lord Lord Lord’
Kanye West is continuing his healthy regime of releasing free music. ‘Lord Lord Lord’ is the latest from the rapper’s ‘G.O.O.D. Fridays‘ digital download series. The track sways soulful with help of the Gap Band‘s Charlie Wilson and Mos Def‘s laid back lyricism. Raekwon chimes in on the later verse of the Swizz Beatz-produced track. You can listen to and download the song here.
In other Yeezy news, West’s highly-anticipated new album ‘Dark Twisted Fantasy’ has reportedly cost Def Jam over $3 million to record and produce, and the marketing and promotion have not yet even begun.
With costly recording sessions in a mansion in Hawaii and Jimi Hendrix‘s Electric Lady recording studio in New York, and guest appearances by the likes of Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj and more, the star-studded new album will likely be the year’s most expensive album to record.
Also reportedly included in the bill are two private chefs, who have been employed by Kanye, traveling with him throughout the recording of his album. Kanye performed a new song from the album entitled ‘Runaway’ at the MTV Video Music Awards last week, and has filmed a 40-minute film to accompany the the song. Cha-ching!
‘Dark Twisted Fantasy’ is scheduled for a November 16 release date.
