Kanye West has added a new track to the very end of his "living, breathing changing creative expression" that is The Life of Pablo

The new track, named "Saint Pablo" after both his son Saint West and his seventh studio album, is a confessional track, covering Ye's marriage, his debt woes and the complex relationship with his designation as the most conceited man in hip-hop. 

It's the 20th song to be featured on Pablo, and it comes just a day after the Chicago-bred hitmaker's tour announcement. The updated album with "Saint Pablo" is currently available on Tidal, but judging by the course the album took, it'll likely show up on Apple Music and Spotify soon enough.

The track feels like a perfect addition to an already-iconic masterpiece. It continues the internal monologue West follows throughout the album as the star contemplates his legend status alongside his press and money problems.

West previously discussed the track back in February, saying he wrote it after admitting to being $53 million in personal debt and asking for Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg's help... via Twitter.

Below are some of the most revealing lyrics off "Saint Pablo":

"My wife said, I can't say mo to nobody/ And at this rate we gone both die broke/ Got friends that ask me for money knowing I'm in debt/ and like my wife said, I still didn't say no."
"I guess it's hard to decipher all of the bills, especially when you got family members on payroll."
"The media say he's way out of control, I just feel like I'm the only one not pretending/ I'm not out of control, I just feel like I'm the only one not pretending/ I'm not out of control, I'm just not in they control."
"I know I'm the most influential, that Time cover was just confirmation/ This generation's closest thing to Einstein."

The song was produced by West and his friend and fellow hit-making producer Mike Dean, Genius reported.
