Kanye West’s ‘The Life Of Pablo’ Demos Leak: Hear Kendrick Lamar’s “All Day” Verse & A Scrapped Justin Vernon Collab
UPDATE: Kanye has officially sprung a leak. Maybe that laptop-stealing cousin finally got fed up. Anyway, a whole cluster of demos have surfaced this afternoon, including a version of “All Day” featuring Kendrick Lamar and a new “Famous” intro with a version of the Taylor Swift line that is both more troubling (“Taylor Swift still owe me sex”) and softened (“not really, but somewhat famous”). Hear all the latest leaks while they last below.
Last June, Bon Iver‘s Justin Vernon performed with Kanye West and they told the crowd that they had more collaborations on the way. Vernon was previously featured on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Watch The Throne and Yeezus, so the streak was expected to continue on West’s seventh album. But Vernon was nowhere to be found in the credits for The Life Of Pablo. Now, though, we know they did work together during the T.L.O.P. sessions, because an album demo has surfaced featuring Vernon and The-Dream.
It’s purportedly called “Fall Out Of Heaven,” and it’s definitely unfinished: West’s verses are littered with unwritten, wordless stretches, although some of the lyrics that do show up ultimately landed on “Famous.” As for the production, the foundation was repurposed for “FML,” including the queasy Section 25 sample.
