Kanye West Still Loves a Good Brag

Kanye remains Kanye. "Can I have a bad bitch without no flaws / come to meet me without no drawers?" West inquires in "Theraflu," picking up exactly where he left off with that uncomfortably, delightfully juvenile bathroom-stall marriage trial on "N*ggas in Paris." The new track, final destination unknown (although the G.O.O.D. Music collaboration album is maybe a decent bet?), came out of absolutely nowhere on Wednesday night, a furiously bass-heavy banger full of boasts on boasts on boasts. "Theraflu" is so braggadocio-rich that even an admission of falling for Kim Kardashian seems like an afterthought once Kanye threatens to have Jay-Z fire Kris Humphries from the Nets merely for daring have affections toward the same woman. There's also a possibility Yeezy dubs himself "Swag King Kong." UPDATE: Snatched from Soundcloud! Head here to hear the track instead.
