Kanye West’s ‘Theraflu’ is now ‘Way Too Cold’

Before I start, I have to apologize for the dearth of updates recently. I’ve been dealing with a personal matter here that shook things up recently, but don’t worry, normal posting should be back on soon.

Anyway, a couple weeks back, Kanye West released a song about how much he loves Kim Kardashian, and how he especially loved banging her all throughout her fake sham marriage, which I’m sure is going to reflect great on her in her divorce proceedings. Anyway, the only problem with the song, other than the EVERYTHING ELSE, is that Kanye named the song Theraflu, which just so happens to be copyrighted. So now he’s changing the title so he doesn’t end up getting sued for comparing a fine product with a cheating famewhore liar, according to his blog:

(April 14, 2012 – New York, NY) Last week, Kanye West lit up the airwaves with a surprise Funkmaster Flex exclusive of his incendiary new track THERAFLU through New York’s Hot 97. Within hours, the track and its vivid, revealing, personal lyrics had taken over the blogosphere, streets and clubs, inciting a firestorm in the press, both on and offline. Praised by fans and attacked by detractors, Theraflu ignited controversy the way only a new Kanye West track can.

Today, Kanye announces the creative decision to title the track WAY TOO COLD feat. DJ Khaled.

Whether it’s been through his pioneering lifestyle blog, his unabashed, frequently controversial twitter feed, or his wildly popular G.O.O.D. Fridays download series, Kanye West has always used the online space – perhaps as well as any artist of his era – to give fans access to his creative world. Now, in an effort to bring his fans the freshest, most undiluted version of his music, Kanye will offer WAY TOO COLD for sale through his website. This direct digital offering marks a first for West. The track will also be made available to all digital retailers and services.

For the record, the makers of Theraflu have gone on the record to say that the name change was in no way because of them, but who are we kidding? When your product is the name of a song about having sex with a Kardashian, my God you bring the fire and brimstone down on a motherfucker.
