While his “Jeen-Yuhs” documentary continues to rack up views on Netflix, there’s now a different video of Kanye West causing a stir on social media. Hours after a judge granted Kim Kardashian officially single, her former husband released a video depicting the live burial of Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson, Kardashian’s new boyfriend.
Taken from his Donda 2 album, Kanye West recently released a black and white music video for his song “Eazy,” a collaboration with rapper The Game.
Shot in an animation style, the creative video effortlessly illustrates the lyrics with cascading scenes of non-controversial imagery—that is, until a scene shows Ye driving on a bike with an unknown victim tied to the back of it.
“Mr narcissist, tell me about my arrogance. No more counseling, I don’t negotiate with therapists,” Kanye West raps just before the identity of the victim is revealed.
Uncovering his head, the video shows Ye burying Pete Davidson alive over lyrics about Ye and Kim’s divorce.
“I got love for the nannies but real family is better. Cameras watch the kids I stopped taking the credit,” Ye continued as his animated character sprinkles seeds over Pete Davidson’s partially buried body.
After Kim declared “single”, Kanye West releases video
In recent days, Kim Kardashian asked a Los Angeles judge to finalize her divorce from Ye. It comes as the multi-talented rapper continues to permeate their marital issues all over social media, including threatening her boyfriend Pete Davidson.
“Mr. West, by his actions, has made it clear that he does not accept that the parties’ marital relationship is over,” the court filing says about Kanye. “Mr. West has disseminated on social media the parties’ private communications and misinformation about personal family matters and co-parenting, which has caused emotional distress.”
On Wednesday, a judge officially granted Kim’s single status, allowing her to remove “West” from her name.
According to the Associated Press, The judge’s move is known as bifurcation. It allows a person to become legally single while they sort out issues of child custody and property during a difficult divorce.
Meanwhile, Kanye West didn’t attend the court hearing and replaced his attorney a day before.
For her part, Kardashian said “Mr. West has no objections to moving this forward” and that Ye only wanted to sort out technical issues before the official “single” status was declared.
It’s anybody’s guess what Kanye West’s latest antics will be, but if his Donda 2 “Eazy” video is any indication, someone might want to ask Pete Davidson how he’s doing.
