Today I look at Kanye's decision to put a temporary halt to the G.O.O.D. Fridays due to a leak of an unfinished album track...


In a move straight out of elementary school, Kanye West has punished us all (http://twitter.com/kanyewest/status/25946104178) for the actions of one. I canít say I blame him, itís one thing if youíre a doctor who promised an album 10 years ago (http://live.drjays.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/dre-studio.jpg) that hasnít seen one track short of the garbage (http://www.6lyrics.com/SixLrImages/News/MiguelE-2010-6/0d190178-2777-4d56-80e8-11758cb6df64.jpg) that supposedly wonít be on the album (as of the time that the comments started being 100% hate-filled) but Mr. West has been graciously blessing us with brand new star-studded tracks every single week for the past two months and we repay him by leaking some clearly unfinished track off his actual album. What type of greedy shit is that?

You know it was just yesterday I was reading about (http://www.2dopeboyz.com/2010/09/29/lloyd-banks-on-kanye-west-nas-collab-video/) Kanye West getting Lloyd Banks, the (other) recovering coke addict (http://headlessgiant.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/kid_cudi_happy.jpg), the apparently only person (http://cdn.hiphopdx.com/images/news/John_Legend-The_Roots_To_Produce_John_Legends_Next_Album.jpg) who can sell Roots albums, and Amy Winehouseís newest boytoy (http://ihadheard.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Nas-Amy-Winehouse-Damian-Marleys-Birthday-Party-3-590x938.jpg) (who got Ether-ed now huh?) all together on a G.O.O.D. Friday track but now there ainít no question itís not dropping this Friday, and who knows, if heís really that pissed (which he has every right to be), then we might never get it, as he may just wait til the album drops.

Iíve briefly discussed (http://www.reppghhiphop.com/2010/06/25/the-bonus-track-get-rid-of-it/) leaks before, and my constant contradictions basically allow me to go either way on this (pause) just as the industry itself allows leaks to go either way, some kill an artistís chances of selling records, some help the artist to sell records, which honestly at the end of the day if your album sucks then your album sucks. Back in the day weíd only buy your single, now we only bump your leak, itís the same thing just in new media format. I know them 808s leaks ainít hurt Kanye cause at the end of the day that album was still fucking incredible, so Iím assuming the same shit gonna happen this time as well, leak or no leak, the album is gonna be fire, so why yall gotta fuck up G.O.O.D. Fridays (http://www.reppghhiphop.com/2010/09/23/g-o-o-d-fridays/)?

Iím sure the mainstream (white) media is gonna spin the story to make it seem like Kanye is an asshole depriving us of music, or maybe they wonít, theyíre still granting him forgiveness (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rebecca-macatee/kanye-west-we-forgive-you_b_742376.html) and accepting him back into mainstream society after a long period of exile (how come Rapelesberger (http://www.draftdaysuit.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/ben-roethlisberger-drunk.jpg) ainít had to go through that? oh waitÖ) so maybe they wonít notice, but as far as hip hop goes weíre truly taking an L on this one, and yet some sites (http://www.aboveandbeyondmag.com/2010/09/30/mp3-kanye-west-all-of-the-lights-unfinished/) still got the nerve to act like Kanye is the douchebag (asshole, scumbag, jerk-off) in this situation, as if we somehow have the right to hear his unfinished music. First of all, 99% of unfinished tracks suck. Second of all, if it ainít your music, then you got no fucking right to decide what should be leaked and what shouldnít so acting entitled is by far the most ignorant thing anyone can do.

Hopefully this punishment only lasts one week as Iíd certainly love to hear this Kanye/Banks/Cudi/Nas joint, along with the Madlib produced joint that was announced the other day (http://twitter.com/kanyewest/status/25505469676), but if homie feels like just waiting to deliver us the full record, then thatís fine by me, as if anything this might (naw it really wonít) deter people from leaking unfinished tracks in the future, as all they really do is clog up my hard drive with shit I canít bring myself to delete cause that slightly different version may just end up being better than the finalized product (as was the case with ďRobocopĒ, sort of). So thanks a lot to whoever leaked ďLost in the WorldĒ, letís have a toast to that asshole.
