Version of Kanye West's 'Famous' Featuring Young Thug Leaked

Kanye West

(Radio.com) It turns out that Young Thug appeared on more than one track for Kanye West's album The Life of Pablo. An earlier version of "Famous" surfaced on Thursday (Oct 6), and it heavily features YT.

In the leaked version, Rihanna gets wiped completely. Instead of her vocals leading off the track, West starts "Famous" with a sample of Nina Simone's "Do What You Gotta Do." The sample returns on the chorus, where West counterposes his vocals against Simone's. Swizz Beatz still has his hand in the honey, though, and West shouts out his work throughout.

Then there's Young Thug. He's all over the track, lending a last verse and hyping throughout. Young Thug's rhymes start out paced before he doubles down on the beat and comes in almost trilling.

On the album's original track listing, Young Thug only appeared on "Highlights," but this early version of "Famous" proves that he had more than enough fire to go around. Listen to "Famous" here.
