    Kanye West is set to return on February 22nd with Donda 2. In anticipation, he’s shared “City of Gods,” a new collaboration with Fivio Foreign and Alicia Keys.

    Decidedly an East Coast number, Brooklyn drill rapper Fivio Foreign and concrete-jungle native Alicia Keys help Ye celebrate New York with thunderous bass and a skittering beat. “New York City, please go easy on me tonight,” Keys sings gently, but West, meanwhile goes on the offensive. Threatening to pull up to SNL — where a certain someone works — West spits, “When I pull up, it’s dead on arrival/ They act like they love you, they don’t even like you.” Wonder what that’s about.

    Update — 2/18: Fivio Foreign has shared a black-and-white video for “City of Gods” dedicated to his late friend Tahjay “T Dott” Dobson. Check it out below.

    In other beef-related Kanye news, the rapper recently said he wouldn’t play Coachella unless fellow headliner Billie Eilish apologized for a perceived slight against Travis Scott, who is apparently slated to join West for his set at the festival. (The slight in question? Helping an endangered fan during a performance.)

    In music news, meanwhile, West recently produced the new Pusha T song “Diet Coke,” and uploaded his 2006 live album Late Orchestration to US streaming services for the first time.

    According to a press release, West is also set to executive produce Fivio Foreign’s new album, B.I.B.L.E, which will be released on March 25th.
