Kanye West is starting 2016 off by throwing some major shade! Yeezy dropped a new song titled ‘Facts’ on Dec. 31, and it totally slams both Steve Harvey AND Bill Cosby. Listen to his disses right here!
Is Kanye West, 38, trying to start a feud with Steve Harvey and Bill Cosby in the new year? Both Bill and Steve had a rather rough 2015, and Kanye isn’t going to let them forget it. He attacked both of the controversial comedians in a new track, “Facts,” and while it’s not shocking to hear Kanye shade another celeb, he may have outdone himself with the disses he throws out in the song!
Backed by a head-bumping beat, “Facts” is a classic Kanye track that combines the two things Kanye does best: Rapping and throwing shade. He not only rips on Bill’s sexual assault scandal and Steve’s Miss Universe flub in the song, but he does so in the same line! “Do anybody feel bad for Bill Cosby? Did he forget the names just like Steve Harvey?” Whoa Kanye, now that’s some serious shading!
Considering Bill was just officially charged with sexual assault on Dec. 30, Kanye’s Dec. 31 release of “Facts” only made the diss on Bill even more intense. Plus, with how humiliated Steve was about announcing the wrong winner of the 2015 Miss Universe pageant, Kanye’s diss probably just pours salt in the wound. Needless to say, Ye picked quite the pair to attack!
In addition to Bill and Steve, Kanye also blasted Nike in the song. His Yeezy shoes had major success with Adidas in 2015, and Kanye had no problem reminding Nike of that! “Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy, they line up for days,” he raps, even bringing Drake into it. “If Nike ain’t had Drizzy man they wouldn’t had nothin’.” Man, Kanye really held nothing back in this song!
And if you didn’t think Kanye was serious when he announced that he’d be running for president in 2020 at the MTV Video Music Awards, think again — Kanye declared in “Facts” that he was dead serious! He raps, “2020 Imma run the whole election,” and it seems it’s definitely a fact that he’ll be running. But after all of the shade he threw in his new song, one thing is for sure: Steve and Bill won’t be voting for him!
