For the second straight day, an unfinished song from Kanye West's upcoming album leaked. With "All of the Lights" following "Lost in the World" Kanye West took to lashed out at the "one hacker" distributing the tracks. He said that because of the leaks, this week's G.O.O.D. Fridays download has been canceled.
"It's messed up that one hacker can mess everything up for everyone," West wrote late last night, after "All of the Lights" appeared. (The song was promptly pulled from most sites.) "I love to take a year to finish my songs and deliver them to you guys in [their] most completed form. It would have seemed like since I give free music every week even the lowest form of human being would respect that enough not to leak unfinished songs from my real album." Kanye added that four engineers are currently in the process of mixing the album in time for it's still-unannounced release date.
A minute-long snippet of "All of the Lights," then called "Ghetto University" and featuring a verse by Drake, leaked earlier this summer. Kanye previously mentioned in in a webchat with fans that, like "Lost in the World," "All of the Lights" was the frontrunner to be the new album's follow-up single to "Power." West, however, opted for "Runaway" instead.
