In the hours before Kanye West's The Life of Pablo hit most major streaming platforms early Friday morning, a track from the rapper's next album, Turbo Grafx 16, leaked online. "Saint Pablo"—referred to as "Closest Thing to Einstein" when Yeezy debuted it in a club in February—appeared on SoundCloud Thursday evening, only to mysteriously disappear shortly thereafter. Luckily, the song still exists in cyberspace, and you can stream it here, via DDotOmen.

The track features Drake's "Too Much" collaborator Sampha. Choice bars—many of which bear witness to 'Ye's gargantuan ego—include, "I been wakin' the spirits of millions more to come / A million illegally downloaded my truth over the drums." 

Also present on the track is some magnificent production, although the most prescient thing is obviously Kanye's self-made comparisons to Albert Einstein, which pervade his many verses.
