“Swizz [Beatz] looked at me the other night and said man are you getting sleep and I told him I can’t sleep… My people need this new music,” he wrote. “I know yall need the music so I’m dropping 1 new song every weekend until Xmas. It may be my song it may be a new Jay song etc…I’m calling it good Fridays. Yall know every Friday yall gone have a new joint from our family.”

With West and Jay-Z’s “Power” remix and his and Beyoncé’s “See Me Now” already out there, plus new albums on the way from West himself and protégés like Kid Cudi and Big Sean, that’s going to be a whole lot of G.O.O.D. Music to enjoy as summer turns to fall and winter.

What do you think of Kanye’s release plan? Looking forward to this Friday?
