Kanye West Wants To Beat Up Pete Davidson In A New Song
During the 2000s, The Game and Kanye West made several amazing songs together. In 2005, 50 Cent’s protege and JAY-Z’s pupil became some of the new stars of Hip-Hop. Kanye produced “Dreams,” a video single from Game’s double-platinum debut, The Documentary. A year and a half removed from The College Dropout, Ye tapped the Compton, California rapper to appear on Late Registration‘s “Crack Music.” The two artists who each coveted the spotlight kept a working relationship for several more years while they amassed elite discographies.
In 2022, The Game and Kanye are back at it. After they appeared on social media together this week, the pair just released “Eazy”—a song by The Game that features Kanye West, and scratches by DJ Premier. Produced by Hit-Boy, the track features an homage to Eazy-E’s “Eazy-Duz-It” breakout from nearly 35 years ago.
Drake Dissed Kanye West Throughout Their Concert
This song finds Ye addressing his ex-wife’s new love, SNL star Pete Davidson. “How I ain’t bring nothin’ to the table when I’m the table? / I’ma turn up the music, wake up the neighbors / I’ma get that “Thug Life” tatted ‘cross the navel / This is how I am in real life, not just on cable / ‘Mr. Narcissist,’ tell me ’bout my arrogance / No more counselin’, I don’t negotiate with therapists / God Ye, wanna let God in? / But tonight, I guess I’ll let my pride win,” he begins his guest verse—released earlier tonight (January 15). Amid West’s ongoing divorce with Kim Kardashian, Kanye purchased a neighboring home to Kim K’s Calabasas compound. Mentioning “neighbors” at the onset is a curious choice. Family is heavy on Kanye’s mind as he raps, “Cousin Dre sent me scriptures, helped me see life better / Ni**a, we havin’ the best divorce ever / If we go to court, we’ll go to court together / Matter of fact, pick up your sis, we’ll go to Kourt’s together / I watched four kids for like five hours today / I wear these Yeezy boots everywhere, even in the shower today / I got love for the nannies, but real family is better / The cameras watch the kids, y’all stop takin’ the credit / Noncustodial dad, I bought the house next door / What you think the point of really bein’ rich for?” Kanye clearly feels the divorce is going well, as he name-checks his former sister-in-law on a song with The Game. The reference to Dre presumably refers to Dr. Dre, who Kanye planned an album with—before the Aftermath Entertainment founder’s high-profile split.
He continues, “Rich-ass kids, this ain’t yo’ mama house / Climb on your brother’s shoulders, get that Top Ramen out / God saved me from that crash / Just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass (Who?) / And my new b*tch bad / I know Illuminati mad.” Kanye revisits a lyric from his breakthrough 2003 hit “Through The Wire” and updates it with a jab at Kim’s new boyfriend. , while Kanye has been public about hoping to save his marriage. Previously, Pete has used his SNL platform to make light of Kanye West. Notably, the Illuminati lyric may also raise eyebrows on a song where he reunites with an artist who dissed JAY-Z for over a decade: The Game. Along the way, West also alludes to his new romantic partner, actress Julia Fox.
Kanye West Details The Secret Warfare Drake Has Waged On Him
The Game begins his song with an autobiographical verse: “Started in my Cutlass clutchin’ heat like it’s an open oven / Puffin’ chronic, Puff and Biggie out the window, speaker subbin’ / Run into the Crips, it ain’t no discussion / Bullet wounds drenched in Hennessy and teaspoons of Robitussin / Head up faze, got a few concussion, yeah / Compton’s amazed, Dr. Dre percussion / God, please grant my n**a eternal life, we need the beats / Aftermath whеre you fall asleep, you do not eat.” He also uses wordplay to weave in name-checks of fellow Compton artists: Problem, YG, and Eazy-E, as well as Ty Dolla $ign.
The song marks an armistice between Kanye and Hit-Boy. Recently, the two who famously collaborated on “Ni**as In Paris” have been at odds. The rift began when one of the G.O.O.D Music hit-makers began working with Beyoncé beyond Ye’s knowledge. Hit-Boy, who has dominated in his work with Nas, Benny The Butcher, Big Sean, and others, did not mince words for West either. However, they appear back on good terms—with one of Hip-Hop’s O.G.’s, DJ Premier, lacing the song with crisp scratches. Preemo and the late Eazy-E go back to the ’80s. Mike Dean is also a credited producer.
