A new Kanye West track has surfaced feat. Charlie Wilson titled 'Brothers'. The 2-minute track is reminiscent of Graduation Kanye with its heavy sampling and vocal elements. We're hoping this is a journey back to a better musical era from Kanye West.
"Brothers" is from the premiere episode of BET's 'Tales' series; an anthology series created by Irv Gotti where each episode is depicted around the context of a Hip-Hop song. Past episodes include "Fuck The Police", "Trap Queen" and "99 Problems".
Irv Gotti produced the Kanye & Charlie Wilson track and is quoted saying:
"I did it for my Hip Hop Culture. I wanted to give the fans something to listen to and enjoy as well as visually enjoy, and 'Brothers,' the song in conjunction with this global TV premiere is precisely that moment".
Future episodes this season will be influenced by:
Cardi B - Bodak Yellow
Lauryn Hill - Ex-Factor
Lil Uzi Vert - XO Tour Life
XXXtentacion - Moonlight
Geto Boys - Mind Playing Tricks On Me
Migo - Slippery
Nas - I Gave You Power
Mary J. Blige - My Life
Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg - Deep Cover
It is yet to be confirmed whether season 2 of 'Tales' will air in the UK. Does this call for a revamp of Dubplate Drama? I hope so! Listen to "Brothers" below.
