Kanye West Dropped A Song Openly Dissing Pete Davidson Because, You Know, Mess

This one could have stayed in the drafts, IMO.

By now, you may know that Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson are an ~item~.

As a society, we all collectively and unwittingly ~keep up with the Kardashians~, so if this is news to you, then I am genuinely impressed. 

Not long after the couple went public, Kanye West reportedly purchased a house across the street from Kim Kardashian:

It's giving The Great Gatsby...

And not long after that, Kanye West and Uncut Gems' Julia Fox went public with their budding romance:

So, seems like everyone's moving on, right?



Well last night, Kanye West announced his latest single, "MY LIFE WAS NEVER EAZY" ahead of his highly anticipated album Donda 2:

This...was a choice. 

While the single hasn't been officially released, one of the lyrics is making the rounds: "God saved me from the crash, just so I can beat Pete Davidson's ass."

The "crash" he's referencing is the car crash he was in back in 2002 when he fell asleep at the wheel. The accident resulted in a shattered jaw, which inspired his first single, "Through the Wire..." ahead of his debut album, College Dropout. 

Now I KNOW that this isn't the first time — or the last — that an artist is going to air their dirty laundry in music form, however, given the optics around Kanye West, especially in regards to his feelings about Kim and Pete, I don't think it's a stretch for me to say that this is a bad look.

I *personally* think Kanye should take a page out of the Kim playbook and focus on his relationship with Julia Fox instead of her relationship with Pete Davidson, but hey, what do I know?
