A new record from the legendary 808s & Heartbreak and My Beautiful Twisted Dark Fantasy emcee Kanye West and Houston’s Hip-Hop bossman Travis Scott has surfaced online. Titled God’s Country, the single has been previewed at least three times over the last two years.
The single was first featured on Kanye West’s tenth studio album Donda when Ye revealed the LP’s tracklist. It further surfaced in Dame Dash’s leaked documentary on Kanye West in 2020. Most recently, Travis Scott previewed the seemingly Ye-produced track during his first live set since the unfateful Astroworld Fest in Houston – where at least 10 people had succumbed to accidental asphyxiation – at O2 Arena, London.
Hip-Hop listeners have begun to speculate whether the latest preview will get a spot on Travis Scott’s fourth studio album Utopia. The LP, which serves as the follow-up to Scott’s iconic Hip-Hop record Astroworld – is slated to release soon.
“It ain’t up to you no more/ God’s Country this is war / Hol’ Up Son I make the storm/ Roll the dice I make it four / It ain’t up to you no more / God’s Country, this is war / We was quiet when he rose / Now I’m talkin’ to the boss /
I’mma talk to you” Ye raps over the two-minute preview.

Travis Scott was recently featured on Pharrell William’s Down in Atlanta. Produced by Pharrell, the single just might be the second lead single to Pharrell’s forthcoming third studio album Phriends. The single serves as the follow-up to ‘Cash In, Cash Out’ released in June and featured 21 Savage and Tyler, The Creator.
