Kanye West and Kid Cudi Guest on New T.I. Leak, ‘Welcome to the World’

Song is slated for T.I.’s ‘No Mercy’ LP

It’s not quite the Kanye West/Jay-Z/Jack White collaboration that’s tantalizingly, offhandedly mentioned in Complex magazine’s Kanye cover story, but we do have a leak of “Welcome to the World,” a song from T.I.’s new LP that features Kanye and Kid Cudi.

Over a throbbing bassline, plinking piano riffs and ricocheting beats, Kanye — whose My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy LP was released Monday — kicks the song off after an intro by T.I.

“I would like to welcome (you) to the world of/ Fast money, fast cars, big diamond rings, big chains and the girls of/ Fake smiles, broken hearts, and if you’re looking for your real love, you won’t find it here, if you’re looking for your real love, good night my dear.”

The disillusionment continue with T.I. and Cudi’s verses. Tip talks about more of the aforementioned fake girls; Cudi gets into the Illuminati (“First off, [what the] fuck that mean?”) and then touches on T.I. and Lil Wayne’s prison sentences.

The song is slated for T.I.’s No Mercy LP, which comes out on December 7, while the MC himself is in the second month of his 11-month prison sentence for parole violation.
