Audio: Kanye West “Mercy” ft Big Sean, Pusha T & 2 Chainz

Kanye-West-Mercy_420

Just in time for G.O.O.D. Friday, Yeezy touches down with a prolific new single from the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation.  In my opinion Big Sean stole the show off the bat with lines like “white girls politicin’ – that’s that Sarah Palin” (sidenote: did he just coin the phrase “@ss tray”?).  Kanye’s part is sort of out there, to say the least but this is a pretty hot track.  If you like the stream below, you can go cop it on iTunes now.

iHipHop will return to SXSW this year for yet another incredible official showcase. Being that it’s our third-year in a row bringing the best and brightest in all of hip-hop to Austin, Texas, we had no choice but to pull out all of the stops. We couldn’t have done it all by ourselves, so big shout outs to our co-presenters Babygrande and The Madbury Club. This year GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan will headline the event, while being backed by none other than Grammy Award winning band Grupo Fantasma (Brownout). The showcase will also include performances by east coast hardcore veterans M.O.P. as well as Curren$y’s entire Jet Life crew (Trademark Da Skydiver, Young Roddy, Smoke DZA, Sir Michael Rocks of The Cool Kids, Fiend, Cornerboy P & Street Wiz), Marz Lovejoy, Flatbush Zombies, T. Mills, Airplane Boys, Mod Sun and DJ Statik Selektah. Whether you’re a hip-hop head or a casual listener, this is place to be. The showcase will take place on Saturday March 17, 2012 at Haven, located at 409 Colorado, Austin. Doors at 8pm. For more information, visit SXSW.com
