On Dec. 31, Kanye West dropped his new single called “FACTS.”  This song will be included in his album “Swish”, that drops on Feb. 11.

In the song “Facts,” Kanye West disses many ideas and people. In late 2013, Kanye West signed with Adidas. Since then, his shoes have outperformed those released by his former employer Nike. In his rap, he boasts about his Adidas Yeezy Boost sneaker collection  and disses Nike by saying, “I ain’t dropped an album but those shoes went platinum.” and “Nike, Nike treat employees just like slaves. Gave LeBron a billi’ not to run away.”

Along with Kanye dissing Nike, he also disses both Steve Harvey and Bill Cosby, “Do anybody feel bad for Bill Cosby? Did he forget the names just like Steve Harvey? Kanye said in his song.

While Kanye does diss stars and companies, he also talks about how successful both him and his wife, Kim Kardashian have become overtime. This song is very unlike the other songs he has written in the past because he is more personal.

Senior  Kenzie Scott said, “I think this song is very unique to his previous ones because in this song his flow goes really hard because he’s trying to diss his haters or anyone that has ever doubted him.”

Kanye West is said to be dropping a new song every Friday until he releases his new album “Swish.” There will be high expectations for every song to be as amazing as “Facts” is. Freshman Gabby Michaels said, “I think his new song ‘Facts’ is amazing because he’s stating how successful he has been in the clothing and shoe business. He is also bragging about his lifestyle and how lavish it is. Kanye West also adds how successful Kim has been too.”

Kanye West is a very intelligent and skilled rapper. There are high expectations for the rest of his new album to be just as good as “Facts” was.
