Following a performance of the G.O.O.D. Music collaboration track "Mercy" to open this year's BET Awards, Kanye West went full a capella to deliver his verse from a new track, "New God Flow."
Now West has unleashed the full track, making it available to stream or download on his website. The track finds Kanye spitting alongside protege Pusha T over an ominous piano loop. At the end the G.O.O.D. Music honcho puts his own spin on the "I don't know, but I've been told" military cadence.
No word on whether "New God Flow" will appear alongside "Mercy" on the G.O.O.D. Music record Cruel Summer, which will drop August 7th. The long-awaited record also shares a title with West's "seven-screen experience" film/art installation, which stars Kid Cudi and debuted at Cannes this year.
You can watch West and co. perform "Mercy" at the BET Awards, followed by West's "New God Flow" verse here:
