On the new track, which reportedly debuted on a radio station in Ye’s hometown of Chicago, he addresses the antisemitic remarks he made in 2022 that resulted in the end of many brand partnerships. “How I’m antisemitic? I just f***** a Jewish b****,” he raps. Online sources report the song might appear on an upcoming Kanye x Ty Dolla $ign joint album.

Megan Thee Stallion‘s former partner Pardi released a rap diss track-of-sorts addressing claims he cheated on the “Savage” rapper. It’s an apparent response to Megan’s latest song, “Cobra,” on which she points to infidelity in their relationship: “Pulled up, caught him cheatin,” Megan says. In “Thee Person,” Pardi says he didn’t plan to speak on the break up but chose to do so after Megan “made it a mess.”
