Kanye West is not letting go of Kim Kardashian as he deploys another trick from his never-ending bag of antics. This time Ye took to Kim’s SNL monologue and used it as a sample to play during the Donda 2 listening event.
The Yeezy mogul hosted his star-studded Donda 2 listening event at LoanDepot Park stadium in Miami, Florida on Tuesday night. During the live performance, Kanye kicked off one of his new songs with a recording of his estranged wife’s from her Saturday Night Live monologue. Kanye also took a swipe at Kim’s new boyfriend Pete Davidson as he rapped about putting someone’s ‘security at risk’.
‘I married the best rapper of all time. Not only that, he is the richest black man in America. A talented, legit genius who gave me four incredible kids. So, when I divorced him, you have to know it came down to just one thing: his personality.’
Following the SNL clip, Kanye dived into a song called Sci-Fi that reportedly seemed to be about the dissolution of his marriage with Kim. West conveniently left out a line in the monologue where Kardashian joked about their divorce and made a dig about his ‘personality.’ She hosted SNL for the first time in October 2021, just eight months after her and West’s public divorce proceedings.
For the concert, West was joined by Marilyn Manson who has been accused by multiple women of sexual and psychological abuse. Manson’s appearance in the first Donda album listening event also had gained West immense backlash online. Other artists included the likes of Alicia Keys, DaBaby, and Migos were also present at the event.
West then appeared to take aim at Pete Davidson in multiple songs, including one referencing her fears that Kanye’s behavior was compromising Pete’s safety. In the song Eazy, which was released last month, West rapped, ‘God saved me from that crash / Just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s a**.’ It comes after the rapper leaked texts from Kim warning him that he was putting her new boyfriend in danger with his social media outbursts.
As time goes by, Ye finds new ways to include Pete and Kim in his life by constantly calling names whether that’s online or on stage. Such a highly unsustainable behavior from a billionaire artist is upsetting, to say the least.
