Kanye West officially releases ‘True Love’ with XXXTentacion

Just a day after XXXTENTACTION’s immersive documentary LOOK AT ME premiered on Hulu, fans of the late icon received another gift in the form of a collaboration with his idol, Kanye West.

Originally a part of the Donda 2 experience, Ye has now officially released his track “True Love” with the fallen South Florida star on Friday (May 27) — further hinting at the “forthcoming” releases of Donda 2 and X’s soundtrack LP, LOOK AT ME: The Album.

In a now deleted Instagram post from the late-rapper’s account, X’s estate divulged that “True Love” is the first single apart of the documentary’s coinciding album similar to that of Juice WRLD’s Fighting Demons and film Into The Abyssas well as Ye’s tribute sequel to his late-mother Donda. X’s tribute album is set be a collection of classic album cuts and SoundCloud gems on DSPs for the first time ever.

While Jahseh and Ye boast different soundscapes on the surface, their energy and ability to take over any track they touch goes hand-in-hand with their affinity for each other’s work. On “True Love,” the two sonic savants find balance in the ebbs and flows of X’s detached hook, as he ghostly croons a few bars that feels as if you’re floating with him.

Ye, on the other hand, tears off a reflective verse with tons of repeats and reverb, spitting “no hard feelings, but these feelings hard though” — making for a head-bobbing tribute track honoring Jah’s talent and Ye’s rap theatrics.

I only see three kids, who watchin’ Chicago?

And you know all the nannies is Donnie Nesbrasco

Let the kids dig a tunnel to my house like Chapo

Only neighbor in the hood with a door they can knock on

I leave the light on

Kanye West — “True Love”

Ye exclusively released the 16-track project through his YZY Stem Player device in February and features the likes of Future, Travis Scott, Don Toliver, Migos, Fivio Foreign, Jack Harlow and X himself. Ye seems to have already begun the rollout for Donda 2, posting a McDonalds ad to his Instagram Story stemming from his infamous Super Bowl commercial.

While Jahseh’s legacy continues to be cherished, it’s only fitting that this new era of XXXTentacion music begins with a collab from his greatest inspiration.
