Kanye West Announces "Good Fridays" Song Giveaways


As if discussions of Justin Bieber collaborations and gems like “French fries are the Devil” weren’t enough to draw you to Kanye West’s Twitter account, there’s one more reason to follow the rapper: free weekly downloads.

Yesterday, West took to his Twitter to announce that he will unleash a new track every Friday from now until Christmas. The MP3s will be by West and his close friends. Below is his tweeted explanation:

“Swizz [Beatz] looked at me the other night and said man are you getting sleep and I told him I can’t sleep, my people need this new music…I know yall need the music so I’m dropping 1 new song every weekend until Xmas. It may be my song it may be a new Jay song etc…I’m calling it good Fridays. Yall know every Friday yall gone have a new joint from our family.”

Couple this with a rumored Taylor Swift reunion and it looks like may have a kinder, gentler Kanye on our hands after all. Happy #MusicMonday, folks!
