Kanye West surprised fans by dropping his first new song in months on New Year’s Eve.
Facts,” which sample’s Drake‘s song with Future, “Jumpman,” delivered blows to fashion houses, athletic companies, and fellow musicians,
The rapper unexpectedly released “Facts (Jumpman)”, which sees him blast sportswear company Nike and sing wife Kim Kardashian’s praises after the huge success of her new Kimoji app.
“Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy, they line up for days. Nike out here bad, they can’t give s**t away,”
West raps, after leaving Nike for a better deal and more creative freedom designing trainers with Adidas.
“Kimoji just shut down the app store and we made a million a minute, we made a million a minute,”
but the harshest diss in the song is directed at two comedians that have come under fire in recent weeks Bill Cosby and Steve Harvey.
“Do anybody feel bad for Bill Cosby? Did he forget the names just like Steve Harvey?”
he also references hisVMAs 2015 election bid (“Imma run the whole election”).
“I stuck to my roots, I’m like Jimmy Fallon, I ain’t dropped the album but the shoes went platinum,”
the song continues.
“Nike treat employees just like slaves, gave LeBron a billi’ not to run away.
Ten thousand dollar fur for Nori, I just copped it, your baby daddy won’t even take your daughter shoppin’.”
West’s upcoming album, Swish, is yet to receive a release date but fans are hoping it will arrive sometime in 2016.
