Kanye West didn’t just drop an album and a fashion line — he also managed to drop a lot of names on his newest album The Life of Pablo.
While his “diss” aimed at Taylor Swift appears to be getting the most buzz, one of the most shocking name drops was aimed at Kim Kardashian’s ex (and “costar”) Ray J!
On the song “High Lights,” the 38-year-old raps, “I bet me and Ray J would be friends/If we ain’t love the same bitch. Yeah, he might have hit it first/Only problem is I’m rich.”
Of course, Ye and Ray J have had this back and forth going on for quite some time.
Ray J dropped the not-so-subtle “I Hit It First,” which boasts, “I had her head going north and her ass going south/But now baby chose to go West… She might move on to rappers and ballplayers/But we all know I hit it first.”
Kanye rebutted several times — most notoriously on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, where he changed the lyrics to “Bound 2” (aka his ode to Kim Kardashian) to say, “Brandy’s little sister lame man he know it now, when a real brother hold you down you ‘sposed to drown.”
Despite all this, there allegedly isn’t any beef between the two men. According to TMZ, Kanye gave Ray a head’s up about the song and he was cool with it and appreciated Ye reaching out.
