Kanye West has teamed up with Charlie Wilson for ‘Brothers’ – a new track which premiered on US television last night. A snippet of the track featured in the latest episode of Tales, an anthology series created for BET by writer Irv Gotti. The full track can be heard on Gotti’s Instagram page where he explained how Kanye West became involved.
He wrote: “There is a lot of speculation right now on who is Kanye West rapping about on this sing. So here is the song. That BET cut off because of their way of airing episodes. But it was always meant for the audience to hear the whole record. Listen. And decide for yourself if you think Kanye is rapping about Jay Z or Virgil. Both Ye’s Brothers. And also let me know if you liked the episode and song. We did it for y’all. My hip hop culture.”
“It’s a great uplifting song and episode and he did it,” Gotti also said of collaboration, speaking on the Sunday Service creator. “After he did that, it took a minute to get clearances and whatnot back. I got it done. The theme of the episode is about two brothers and their father. The brothers beef a little and then eventually come together.”
The latest collaboration between West and Wilson comes after they previously joined forces on the song ‘No Mistakes,’ which featured Kid Cudi and was included on West’s most recent album, Ye.
‘Brothers’ is West’s first release since Ye, though he has appeared on many other songs as a guest, including ‘Puppet’ by Tyler, the Creator, ‘Mixed Personalities’ by YNW Melly and ‘I Love It’ by Lil Pump. West recently previewed another new song, ‘Water’, at his Sunday Service performance at Coachella and he was also a guest on the new season of David Letterman’s Netflix show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, where he discussed clothes, music, and mental health with the esteemed former Late Show host.
