In his new song “Hot S-t” with Cardi B and Lil Durk, Kanye West raps about how he can’t take reading stories about the four kids he shares with ex-wife Kim Kardashian.
“Another headline, ‘Where your head at?’ / ‘N—a, go home, where your kids at?’ / They be on my nerve, they are on my nerve,” West says in his verse of the collaboration, which dropped Friday.
Additionally, the Grammy winner, 45, raps about being in “pain,” maybe alluding to his highly public divorce from Kardashian, 41.
“I’m just sayin’, now I start to get used to the pain / ‘Til one day I said, ‘F–k it,’ brought my masseuse on the plane,” he says in the track.
When he alleged that Kardashian did not allow him to see their four children—North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3—West made headlines in March. Additionally, he publicly criticized the creator of Skims for allowing North to submit videos on TikTok without his consent.
Per Page six, he seems to allude to his worries about being prevented from seeing his children as early as January when he said, “Nothing with my career, with this rap, with this media, with none of that, that’s gonna keep me from my children. And that’s what I want everybody to know.”
He further said, “Don’t play with me, don’t play with my children. Ain’t no security gonna get in between me and my children, and you ain’t gonna gaslight me.”
West asserted he had not received an invitation to Chicago’s birthday celebration in the same month, but he ultimately showed up to the celebration.
He had recently purchased a $4.5 million home across the street from Kim Kardashian’s Hollywood Hills residence to be nearer to his family at the time.
Kardashian, however, has insisted on numerous occasions that she is not preventing West from visiting their children, and in March she even begged the Yeezy designer to stop pushing that narrative.
The “Kardashians” star also shared a rare statement on West’s behavior toward her in January, writing in part, “Kanye’s constant need for attacking me in interviews and on social media is actually more hurtful than any TikTok North might create.”
She added, “Divorce is difficult enough on our children and Kanye’s obsession with trying to control and manipulate our situation so negatively and publicly is only causing further pain for all.”
Kardashian has moved on with beau Pete Davidson after filing for divorce from West in February 2021. West made several threatening statements toward Davidson after news of their relationship broke, but he has stayed off the grid since being temporarily booted from Instagram in March.
Following six months of dating, Kardashian recently revealed that she had introduced Davidson, 28, to her children. The “Saturday Night Live” alum was spotted with Saint in June.
