Man, it’s good to have G.O.O.D. Fridays back. Kanye starts off the series by dropping “Real Friends,” what could be described as the melancholy cousin to “Family Business.”
Ty Dolla $ign is excellent in his role, crooning through Autotune as West vents about family drama.
“I’m a deadbeat cousin, I hate family reunions,” West raps. “When was the last time I remembered a birthday? When was the last time I wasn’t in a hurry?”
(Also worth noting: there’s some significant Canadian content in this offering – West samples Frank Dukes and Boi-1da.)
