Kanye West has released the new song “Eazy” with The Game. The rapper legally known as Ye has been in the studio working on the follow-up to donda.
On the new track, Ye throws shade at soon-to-be ex-wife Kim Kardashian and makes multiple allusions to their high-profile divorce.
“‘Mr. Narcissist, tell me about my arrogance / No more advice, I don’t negotiate with therapists,’ he boasted, later claiming that the couple “have the best divorce ever.”
The Kardashian family is also apparently under strain, with Ye calling the famous reality TV clan “boujee and unruly”.
Also caught in the verbal crossfire of Ye is Saturday Night Live actor Pete Davidson, who has been linked to the Kardashians in recent weeks. “God saved me from that accident,” he says, “Just so I could beat Pete Davidson’s ass.”
Earlier in the week, the track was teased by designer Tracey Mills, who shared a video call on Instagram between DJ Premier and Ye, who was in the studio with Pusha T, the Game and producer Mike Dean. “We just have to control the sound of the music…it’s up to us now. Full stop,” he told the Prime Minister. “We have to release a song on Friday that we wanted you to scratch on.”
Mills also shared a muted clip from the studio featuring A$AP Rocky after he “came to bless the session” with West, the Game and Pusha T.
Moneybagg Yo is also apparently working on new music with Ye, and that’s for 2. Like Complex noted, Moneybagg Yo shared a screenshot of a text message between the rappers on his Instagram story, which TIDAL tweeted. Ye texts Moneybagg Yo, “Could you rap about Judd the drums and I’ll put the music around” and added, “Gotta hook up with you on Donda 2.”
The song caps off a big week for the rapper: he was announced to be one of the headliners at Coachella, he was named a suspect in a battery investigation and he released a new video for “Heaven and Hell”. Also, he may or may not meet Vladimir Putin at some point.
