Kanye West unveiled his promised song “Lift Yourself” on Friday night (April 27) -- and things take an interesting turn at the end.
The hip-hop mogul tweeted out a link to his website, and the link leads to the mp3 file that starts playing once the page loads. "Lift Yourself" starts out with a classic Kanye soul sound, with a female vocalist singing: "Hard to see the hang-ups we have today/ We need to strive for more liberty." The hook -- "Lift yourself up on your feet/ Let's get it on" -- then takes a turn into an almost trap-sounding beat.
West then speaks over the track: "What they don't really realize, though, this next verse, this next verse, though, these bars." And the eyebrows raise as he starts to rap a nonsensical combination of "Whoopdedy-scoop, whoopdedy-whoop-scoop-poop/ Poop/ Poop," followed by an abrupt end.
