The track pays homage to the Kardashian sisters, Variety reports, with West rapping, “You got sick thoughts? I got more of ’em. You got a sister-in-law you would smash? I got four of ’em.” The artwork, taken at Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday party, features a photo of the Kardashian/Jenner sisters flipping off the camera while wearing their party best—neon colored spandex.
West recently blasted the airwaves with a slew of albums by or produced by him including Pusha T’s Daytona, the self-titled Ye, West and Kid Cudi’s Kids See Ghosts, Nas’ Nasir and Teyana Taylor’s K.T.S.E.
The new track comes days following his 20-minute interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he discussed Trump, music, and mental health. During the appearance, he talks about his bipolar disorder, saying, “I think it’s important for us to have open conversations about mental health —especially with me being black, because we never had therapists in the black community. We never approached taking a medication. I think it’s good that when I had my first complete blackout at age 5, my mom didn’t fully medicate me. Because I might have never been Ye.”
