In what can be argued as one of the most legendary moments in his beef with the pop singer, ‘Ye decided to make a statement with his music itself, instead of taking to his Twitter account to furiously type out one of his reputed rants as per usual.
During West’s performance last night in Swift’s hometown, he decided to play his song "Famous" three times in a row, with an emphasis on the lyrics, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that b***h famous/ I made that b***h famous.”
The line sparked all sorts of controversy when it first came out, with Swift denying West’s claim that he ran the namedrop by her in the very beginning and she improved the lyric, referring to it as “kind of” a compliment. Kim Kardashian set the internet on fire when she shared the receipts that Swift was lying and that West did in fact speak with her about the song’s content.
In addition to performing the track three times straight, West shared a little bit about how, to him, the song is deeper than throwing shade.
"So many people told me, 'You've got to take that line out of the song,” he addressed the crowd. “You got to play it safe, but this is what rap music is. This is what art is. Saying how you feel. And this song is how I feel."
From there, fans broke out in to a “F**k Taylor Swift” chant, further sealing this performance as one that will live on in Yeezy infamy.
