Mercy was supposed to be be released at midnight on Good Friday, but Ye pulled a switcheroo and leaked to radio DJ’s DJ Clue and Funkmaster Flex a wee bit after 8 pm on Thursday. Clue and Flex played the song, and both of the influential radio hosts played the song with their own promos dropped on the track.
Clue taunted Flex on the air, telling his competitors to “get off my heels.” After playing the track, Flex wasted no time taking jabs at Clue, yelling, “You’re not built like me! You don’t work hard enough! You don’t get up early enough! You want to look cool while I’m out stealing music!”
