Published Aug 23, 2010As Bible readers know, Good Friday is the day when Christians solemnly remember the death of Jesus. Working on his own Christ complex, constantly busy rapper-producer Kanye West has revealed his own version of Good Fridays, where he'll be giving away free MP3s every Friday until the winter.
In a post from his eccentric Twitter account, West 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 [Z] song etcâ¦I'm calling it good Fridays...Yall know every Friday yall gone have a new joint from our family. We look at the game completely different now. It's about the fans. No more holding back. That's why I dropped 'See Me Now'â¦ It wasn't about me, it was about the Summer the BBQs etc."
So there you have it: from here on out, expect new material from Kanye or his G.O.O.D. Music signees every Friday. That might include the anticipated Bieber remix, songs from his upcoming album or (more likely) throwaway tracks from the G.O.O.D. rappers we've never really heard of.
Good Fridays will carry on until Christmastime, when it's quite possible that Kanye will place himself into a nativity scene as a newborn baby.
