In this clip from the Parklife Festival in Manchester, England this past weekend, Hudson Mohawke, the other half of TNGHT and G.O.O.D. Music producer, plays what sounds like a new Kanye verse over TNGHT’s “R U Ready” during his DJ Set. There’s a good chance this could end up as a track on Yeezus, but I suppose we’ll have to wait until the 18th to know for sure.
‘Verse Unheard’ is a new series from Duck Down Visuals featuring artists spitting their favorite verse that has yet to be released. First up Joey Bada$$ performs a verse from ‘Swank’ off his upcoming project ‘Summer Knights’ out June 12th. Shot by Shane Gill and Guy Blelloch.
If you were on Rap Twitter last night or this morning there’s a good chance you have come across the three or four 7 second Vine clips of Kanye’s performance at the Met Gala last night. In the first clip, tweeted out by A-Trak at around 11:00 p.m., Kanye is seen screaming “I Am (A) God”, which of course has long been rumored to be the title of one of his much speculated upon new songs from the as yet untitled new album everybody expects to drop on June 18th.
Well it turns out that at some point this week, Hudson Mohawke, one half of the duo TNGHT, previewed a couple of new Kanye joints during a DJ set he was playing at an unidentified location. Here are two clips from that set that weigh in at a about a minute each. The sound on both is utter shit, but you can still get the gist of both tracks.

While in Austin for SXSW this year, eXquire previewed a few tracks from his upcoming Kismet mixtape and he documented the performances for the benefit of the Internets. At around the 4:12 mark you can hear a preview of “Tomorrow’s Gone” which features Danny Brown, Flatbush Zombies and Nacho Picasso. The last two minutes or so of the clip serve as a video for the Alchemist produced “Fat Fool”, which features eXquire cruising around Austin in one of the city’s ubiquitous pedicabs. Kismet is “dropping shortly”.
R.A. previews a track called “Tom Thum”, named after the Australian beatbox maestro featured on the song, which appears on his new Legends Never Die LP.
