He isn’t afraid of discussing controversial issues in his music.
Yet Kanye West may have surpassed himself, this week – after referencing Tristan Thompson’s ‘cheating’ drama on his latest album.
The rapper, 40, referenced the incident between Khloe Kardasdhian and her sportsman boyfriend on the song Extacy, which is destined to raise eyebrows among his in-laws.
Specifically, he appears to lay the blame for the indiscretion on faith-based dating app, Christian Mingle.
"All these THOTS on Christian Mingle," he says, proving that nobody is off-limits when it comes to his artistry. "That’s what almost got Tristan single."
Naturally, fans were quick to react to the lyric. ‘Yo did @KanyeWest really just reference Tristan Thompson ’s cheating scandal? Jesus,’ said one.
Another quipped: ‘Kim Kardashian really made Kanye chew-out Tristan Thompson on the album. I’m weak.’
It comes just weeks after videos emerged of the basketball player ‘cheating’ on Khloe – Wanye’s sister-in-law – with several women during her pregnancy.
It’s thought Tristan, 27, cheated on Khloe with up to five women while she was pregnant with daughter, True. He is yet to address the cheating claims.
Not that it’s the only personal drama he touches on or the new LP.
He also references the marital fall-out which happened after he claimed slavery was a "choice" for African Americans.
Although he was referring to Democratic Party loyalty, many incorrectly assumed he was talking about the historic slave trade. Including his wife, Kim.
The buxom reality star – with whom he has three children; North, Saint and Chicago – apparently called him "screaming" because she feared they’d "lose it all" as a consequence.
He rapped: "Wife calling screaming saying we’re about to lose it all, I had to calm her down ’cause she couldn’t breathe, I told her she could leave me now but she wouldn’t leave.
"This what they mean when they say ‘For better or for worse, huh?’"
The lyrics surfaced after West held an exclusive album launch party in Wyoming, yesterday.
Of course, he previously caused a stir when he referenced Taylor Swift in the track Famous. In it, he rapped: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that bitch famous."
She hit back, claiming the lyrics were sexist, but – jumping to her husband’s defence – Kim shared audio footage of Swift giving verbal approval for the line.
Afterwards, Kim posted a Twitter message about snakes, which many assumed was aimed at Taylor.
Later, while speaking to GQ, Kim accused Taylor of "playing the victim" and said the singer even promised to laugh about the song at the Grammy awards.
