While Kanye West aired out paparazzi yesterday after running into a street sign, buzz over a deejay premiering new tracks from the G.O.O.D. Music head in Poland has sprouted online.
While details are still fuzzy, producer Hudson Mohawke is reportedly responsible for teasing fans with the tracks.
During Hudson Mohawke’s set at Poland’s Free Form Festival last night, the Scottish producer and G.O.O.D. Music signee dropped two new Kanye West cuts, one of which segued into TNGHT’s “Goooo”. (HudMo also played unreleased Kanye material in his set at Dublin’s Twisted Pepper last week, he tweeted, though there’s no video.) No word yet if these two tracks will appear on Yeezy’s upcoming sixth solo album (which may feature Daft Punk and Skrillex, and be released on June 18), but they’re significantly clearer than the Vine posts of new material debuted at last week’s Met Ball, so much so that it’s possible to pick out some probably soon-to-be-classic lines: “There’s leaders and there’s followers but I’d rather be a d*ck than a swallower.” (Pitchfork)
The tunes come just days after Ye performed new music at New York’s Met Gala 2013.
In a set that reportedly featured songs from his as-yet-untitled new album, West took a moment at one point to say, “Don’t let nobody bring you down, you’re so awesome, you’re so awesome!,” according to a Vine video posted by model Coco Rocha. Reports from the event indicated that the comment was meant for Kardashian, who has been the subject of ongoing tabloid ridicule during her pregnancy. In another clip, West, who took the stage in a leather skirt, sparkly Givenchy top and studded, gauzy mask, can be seen performing what sounds like another new song with a uptempo, glitch techno vibe and a song in which he yells, “I am a god!” West told the crowd he would only be singing new songs during the set.

Last week, Mr. West raised eyebrows by putting up a mysterious tweet which points to June 18th.
After famously removing all his tweets, Kanye West has returned to the social media platform with a single post: “June Eighteen.” The rapper deleted his entire Twitter presence back in October 2012, so his new tweet could mean something big. There’s already rampant speculation about what the cryptic message might mean. Could it be the release of his new music? A tour? Or baby mama Kim Kardashian’s due date? (New York Post)
Heading into the weekend, footage of the Chicago native lashing out at Los Angeles paparazzi surfaced.
Kim Kardashian’s maternal instincts are already kicking in! The seven-months-pregnant reality star, 32, was house-hunting with beau Kanye West in Bel-Air, Calif. on Friday, May 10, when the rapper suddenly walked straight into a street pole. Dressing her growing baby bump in a black lace cardigan paired with a side braid and chandelier earrings, the expectant mother immediately showed her nurturing side — going to the rapper’s side and kissing his forehead while he seemed to wince from the klutzy mishap.
