Kanye West’s latest album, Yeezus, is rearing to go and the rapper is giving an ear to industry players to have at it before the project goes public.
According to The Sun, the 44-year-old rapper cried on stage during his album’s listening party in Las Vegas after performing a song that indirectly touches on his breakup with Kim Kardashian.
‘Welcome To My Life,’ the new song, has lyrics about his last two years, including his broken marriage, Twitter meltdown, and unsuccessful 2020 presidential campaign in the United States.
The lyric that had people talking is said to say, “Tell the assassins I escaped from Calabasas.” He lived in Calabasas with Kardashian and their four children, North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.
The source told The Sun, “It’s a very profound, sorrowful song about Kanye, with him reminiscing on his marriage with Kim. He describes the kids and how she has taken everything. He cried for around two minutes after he finished playing this song. It was a really solemn occasion.”
According to The Daily Mail, West’s new album “doesn’t say anything nasty” about his estranged wife or their family, according to a source.
After almost seven years of marriage, Kardashian filed for divorce from West in January.
Since June, when the two traveled to Villa La Coste in France to celebrate his 44th birthday, West has been linked to model Irina Shayk.
There isn’t much information about Kanye West’s upcoming 10th studio album yet.
It’s called Donda, and it’ll be released on Friday, July 23. It’s named after his mother, Donda West, who died in 2007 after undergoing cosmetic surgery.
As we reported before, CN News was able to access the unofficial tracklist of the album and it seems things are about to get surreal with that album.
West is currently hosting a listening event for Donda at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Jesus Is King, his most recent album, was published in 2019.
West’s representatives have yet to confirm or comment on his lyrics.
