Kanye West Reunites With Keri Hilson For “Take One For The Team”

When we noticed Kanye West tweeting at furniture earlier this week, we weren’t sure just what kind of shape he’d be in by the end of the week. But he’s clearly driven to keep G.O.O.D. Fridays rolling, and he came through this time with a couple of new tricks up his (likely custom-tailored) sleeve. In “Take One For The Team”, ‘Ye pulls in Keri Hilson (his collaborator on the Grammy-nominated smash “Knock You Down”), tosses in some beatboxing, and reveals his least favorite Bath & Body Works scent. Listen to (and download) his six-minute jam below:

G.O.O.D. Friday tracks to date. Then again, let’s cut him a break. He just flew back from Paris and stayed up all night just to finish this. (Rap-Up notes that West and Hilson recently spent some time in the studio, and it’s possible this track arose from those sessions). One suggestion: if he’s really serious about beatboxing (and we hope he’s not), let’s call in Blake Lewis for the remix.
