Just under 3 years ago, Kanye West dropped his Yeezus album, an industrial swerve from his sonically accommodating My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album, and “Black Skinhead” was one of its biggest releases. A remix to the Daft Punk and Mike Dean-produced cut had been teased by numerous people, including Kanye himself–who affirmed Miley Cyrus‘ presence on the song–and Mike Will Made It, but plans for its release were never revealed.
This morning, from the annals of the internet, came the discovery of an apparent “Black Skinhead” remix, featuring Miley, Travi$ Scott and Lupe Fiasco. While Kanye preps the release of next month’s Swish album, his first since Yeezus, he’s revived his G.O.O.D. Friday series, though this doesn’t appear to be one of his official releases. Kanye and Miley dominate the song, with Travi$’ signature ad-libs and vocal riffs providing assistance, and though it’s unclear exactly what Lupe’s contribution is, he’s listed as a feature on the remix.
You can listen to it here. Maybe this will prompt Yeezy to officially liberate the song?
