Kanye West and Kim Kardashian: A brief history of their sweeping romance, in rap
As you may have heard by now, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are involved in an international conspiracy to gross you out.
The frenzy began yesterday, when Yeezy got rather forthright concerning matters Kardashian on his confessional DJ Khaled collab “Theraflu.”
But that song isn’t the first time the rapper has called out Kim in song. It’s the third! So, in the spirit of America’s newest sweethearts (sorry, Jay and Bey!), here’s a roundup of each instance West has included his current girlfriend in his lyrics.
“Theraflu” — Kanye West feat. DJ Khaled (2012, duh)
“And I’ll admit, I fell in love with Kim / ‘Round the same time she had fell in love wit’ him / Well, that’s cool, baby girl, do ya thing / Lucky I ain’t have Jay drop ‘im from the team.”
“Digital Girl (Remix)” — Jaime Foxx feat. Drake, The-Dream, and Kanye West (2009)
“Your body make a baller spend cooked coke cash / Plus every good girl wanna go bad / In Playboy mags like Stacy Dash / Or Kim Kardashian, be a lady at it”
“Stay Up! (Viagra)” — 88-Keys feat. Kanye West (2008)
“Try imagining something passionate / Between you, Cassie, and Kim Kardashian / Maybe that’ll work when you get to hit that a– again / Or you can grab a Red Bull and sip that twice / Now y’all can have sexy time, it’s nice!”*
*Borat references age so well! Schwing!
And as a bonus, we’ll also throw in “Selfish,” the 2004 collaboration between Kanye, Slum Village, and John Legend in which Elzhi weirdly predicts Kardashian’s future failed marriage:
“But hey, Kim, how’s Minneapolis? / You so pretty, hate to show off your titties for silly classes.”
