As promised and promoted via Kim Kardashian, Kanye West has shared a new track “Real Friends,” that comes accompanied with a snippet of “No More Parties in LA,” featuring Kendrick Lamar.

It took a while for Kanye to be satisfied with the final result as apparently “there was a slight distortion in the main loop within ‘Real Friends’,” as Kanye reposted the track several times before finally uploading the final product shortly before 3pm, Friday afternoon.

According to Kanye’s (now deleted) Tweets the duo of songs feature the work and production of Madlib, Boi-1da, Frank Dukes and Havoc, while “No More Parties in LA” uses the same sample from Ghostface Killah’s “Mighty Healthy”.

The all falls on the heels of “FACTS”, Kanye’s most recent track that dropped on New Years Eve.

If Kim Kardashian’s word is her bond, it looks like this could be the beginning of the revival of “G.O.O.D. Fridays” – a series of tracks from 2010 that was a sort of advance of Kanye’s LP My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
