Kanye West stopped by Yo Gotti's album release party for The Art of Hustle last night at 1OAK in Hollywood and decided to give fans what they wanted. Namely, a new rant and some new music. The Chicago rapper stood on the DJ booth and proceeded to vent about Taylor Swift and the "Famous" lyric incident that blew up. Kanye reiterated that he called the singer about the lyric. "I talked with my wife about it, and I said, 'How do you feel about this line Taylor?'"
He also came to Jay Z and Tidal's defense. The rapper released The Life of Pablo exclusively through the streaming service, and according to reports, subscriptions for Tidal doubled after the album dropped. "Do you know what Hov had to go through to make music for y'all?" he said. "Y'all have Blueprint 1 but y'all act like Tidal wack. That man fought to buy a streaming company."
Fans in the club were then treated to a new song from Kanye that features Sampha and is possibly titled "Closest Thing to Einstein." The track samples Jay Z's "Where I'm From" and includes lines like, "Modern day MJ with an Off the Wall flow" and "This generation's closest thing to Einstein/So don't worry about me, I'm fine." Kanye also addressed his recent Twitter rants. "People tryna say I’m going crazy on Twitter/My friend’s best advice was to stay low." Based on his latest rant, Kanye's not taking that advice.
Check out Kanye's new song featuring Sampha above and Instagram clips of his rant below, which also included a reference to Amber Rose's finger in the booty tweet from last month.
Later, Kanye apologized on Twitter for saying the word "bitch" and told TMZ as much following the night's festivities. He also showed Jay Z more love. "Jay don't owe me nothing, man. That's my man, that's my OG," he said in response to a cameraman who inferred Kanye got a bonus from Hov for advertising Tidal. You can check that out in the footage below.
