Is this what Kanye West meant when he said he’s got the love that can turn ‘exes into best friends?’ Yeezy name dropped Kim Kardashian’s former boyfriend, Ray J, on a song from his new album, suggesting Ye and Ray would be buddies ‘if we didn’t love the same b*tch.’
Yes, Kanye West, 38, really did say that. Yeezy held nothing back on his new album, even rapping a nasty verse about Kim Kardashian‘s, 35, infamous ex, Ray J, 35. Despite their past beef, Ye suggested that he and Rey would be tight — if not for one thing.
“I bet me and Ray J would be friends / If we ain’t love the same b*tch,” Kanye raps on his new record, The Life Of Pablo. Kanye unveiled the record at Yeezy Season 3 on Feb. 11, and the sick burn on Kim’s ex echoed throughout Madison Square Garden, according to E! News. If that line wasn’t enough, Ye goes on to tell Ray J that “he might have hit it first / Only problem is I’m rich / Uh, 21 grams superstar family /We the new Jacksons and Momma ’bout that action / I’m about that fair time.”
Uh, okay? Yeezy actually gave a preview of his diss track – and the rest of the album – ahead of the big reveal at his fashion show, according to Design&Trend. Hot 97’s Ebro Darden attended a private listening session and explained on his show, Ebro In The Morning, how the verse is a response to Ray J’s 2013 tasteless diss track, “I Hit it First.”
“And then [Kanye] goes to say ‘You might have hit it first, but I’m rich, though,’ and it’s funny,” Ebro explained. “The way it’s done it’s hilarious. It’s not serious. It’s funny.” While Kanye is bringing up Ray J’s past (and his sex tape with Kim), Kim’s ex is trying to put it all behind him. Ray’s lawyer filed a legal motion against a different ex to stop the release of old interviews where he talks trash about Kim.

What Kanye said about the mother of his two children and her ex is shocking – but it doesn’t hold a candle to the shocking line he dropped about Taylor Swift, 26. Even though TayTay and Yeezy had put their bad blood behind them, Ye decided to say “I feel like me and Taylor Swift might still have sex. I made that b*tch famous.” Unbelievable! So much for Taylor and Kanye’s friendship. Think Taylor might debut her response at the Grammys on Feb. 15?
What do you think about Kanye calling his wife a “b*tch” while mentioning Ray J, HollywoodLifers?
