It was not much longer after West released his newest tracks on SoundCloud, however West shortly removed his material two differet times from the site and took to twitter to state that it was due to him not liking the sound quality the first time he put it up, there was no reasoning for why the song was taken down a second time. No worries because the songs are back up on the site for all to listen to.
Un momento, there was a slight distortion in the main loop within Real Friends. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) January 8, 2016
It will be back up shortly. When it’s back up all rippers please rip the new one instead.

New version is up. Please please erase the old one I wasn’t satisfied with the sound quality. — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) January 8, 2016
"Real Friends" is a throwback to older West music, kind of plays like "Blame Game" and nothing like most recent song "Facts." With a smooth piano instrumental, West raps over his newest track with the help of Ty Dolla $ign. While you can hear all of "Real Friends" you only get a tease of "No More Parties in LA" but you do get to hear the collaboration that takes place between West and Lamar, which is great and everything that you could expect from two of the greatest in the rap game right now.
If we are lucky this is the return of G.O.O.D Music Friday's, which according to Fuse, is when Ye released music every Friday leading up to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy back in 2010. This means we are that much closer to one of the most hyped up albums of 2016, Swish.
