The kings of hip-hop and two of the most respected rappers in the industry, Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar, have recorded a song together. No More Parties in L.A. is a lyrical marathon in a 90-bar verse with Kanye leading and delivering great lines.

He kicks things off rapping “Hell, you know my repertoire is like a wrestler / I show you the ropes, connect the dots", a tirade against other rappers coveting his throne. Then Kendrick slays it: "R&B singers and lesbians, rappers and managers / Music and iPhone cameras / This shit unanimous for you, it's damaging for you, one thing".

Kanye teased this song at the end of Real Friends, the new song he dropped on 9 January, suggesting that he will bring back his G.O.O.D. Fridays by releasing a new song every Friday in the run up to the release of Swish. This came a few days late but it's here now. Listen to the track below.
