Troubled producer Kanye West continues his quest to return to relevancy status in the eyes of music consumers.
After joining Twitter in typical grandstanding fashion, Kanye announced that he would start giving away his wack music for free in a concept called “G.O.O.D. Fridays”. But we knew that was just a publicity stunt that wouldn’t last (who gives away free music?)
This morning – after leaking an unfinished copy of his own track “Lost in the World“, Kanye announced — in typical grandstanding fashion — that he would end his “G.O.O.D. Fridays” giveaways just 3 weeks after its inception. Kanye is so predictable.
Anyway, after leaking his own track, Kanye took to his Twitter page to blame a “hacker” for the leak:
Due to blogs leaking unfinished songs from my actual album I’ve decided to pass on Good Fridays this week.
It’s messed up that one hacker can mess everything up for everyone… 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. [link]
If Kanye’s album sounds like “Lost In The World”, he might as well cancel the whole album because it will flop.
