Uninspired since Lauryn Hill retired

Just in case this is the only music website you see today, I thought you should know there's a new Kanye West song on the internet. No More Parties in LA features Kendrick Lamar, who gets a whole verse before Ye elbows him aside and goes on a four-minute rant about his life, his wife and the cousin who stole his laptop.

He also talks about re-discovering his muse (lost in the aforementioned Lauryn Hill incident), boasting: "I know some fans said I'd never rap like this again / But the writer's block is over / MCs cancel your plans / A 38-year-old ate your role."

True to his word, it's a return to form, with West sounding relaxed and engaged over an old-soul sample that recalls the vibe of his Late Registration material.

The track was released today as part of West's inaccurately named GOOD FRIDAYS campaign, which trails West's new album SWISH, next month.

Writing on Twitter, West's wife Kim Kardashian explained the track had been delayed by the rapper travelling to Italy to oversee work on his fashion line.

"I soooo didn't mean to lie to you guys about GOOD FRIDAYS coming back. Kanye flew to Italy for a Yeezy Season 3 fitting," she tweeted on Saturday after the track failed to materialise. "He flew Noah [Shebib, producer] out with him so he could finish 'No More Parties In L.A.' & wrote 90 bars on the plane there!!!"

It's a hard life, eh?
