He’s done it again. Kanye West dropped a new tune on Thursday, December 31, to ring in the new year. On the track, titled “Facts,” the outspoken musician calls out several household names.
“Do anybody feel bad for Bill Cosby? Did he forget names just like Steve Harvey?” Yeezy raps on the new tune.
The timing of the Cosby dis is particularly on point, as the disgraced comedian, 78, was charged with second-degree felony for aggravated indecent assault on Wednesday, December 30, after dozens of women have come out in the past year to accuse him of sexually assaulting them over the last few decades. And on December 20, the 58-year-old Family Feud host accidentally named the wrong winner for Miss Universe.
The 38-year-old rapper was particularly harsh on Nike in “Facts.” “Nike out here so bad, they can’t give s‑‑t away,” he declares in one lyric, later adding, “Nike, Nike treat employees just like slaves / Gave LeBron a billi’ not to run away.”
But it wasn’t all harsh words. The fashion designer also gave his famous family a few shout-outs. “Plus Kimoji just shut down the App Store, uh! And we made a million a minute,” he brags about wife Kim Kardashian’s incredibly popular emoji app, which crashed Apple’s online store when her package of icons launched on December 22.
Daughter North, 2, also got a mention from her daddy in the tune: “Ten thousand dollar fur for Nori, I just copped it, yo!”
The Selfish author shared a photo on Wednesday, December 30, of her little daughter looking stylish in a fur coat, captioning the image: “Swag.”
West and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 35, welcomed son Saint in December, but the little guy was not mentioned in the song.
This is the second year in a row in which the rapper has released new music around the new year. On January 1, 2015, he released “Only One,” which featured Paul McCartney on keyboards.
West is expected to release his upcoming seventh album, Swish, sometime in 2016. He has not yet announced a date.
