Here's the good news: The clip we've all been waiting to hear, Kanye West's "White Dress" off of the upcoming soundtrack to the RZA-directed The Man With the Iron Fists, has finally hit the Internet. The even better news: it's great. The Boogz, Tapez, Kanye and RZA-produced track references the always likable Late Registration-era Yeezy - he's decidedly less aggressive than he's been as of late.

The (some would argue) not so good news: "White Dress" is about marriage. And there's just something about the thought of Yeezy with a wedding ring that doesn't sit right with us: "She like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain / Or rocking flannels in summer like Kurt Cobain / Or that Dolce Gabbana with a few gold chains / You the kind of girl that deserve a new last name." Uhh, I think he's talking to you, Kim K.

Listen to a preview of Kanye West's "White Dress," and check out our exclusive premiere of RZA and the Black Keys' "The Baddest Man Alive," from The Man With the Iron Fists soundtrack.
