Since debutingThe Life Of Pablo in February,Kanye West found himself in trouble due to the lyrics of “Famous.”
According to a recent Snapchat post from Kim Kardashian, looks like Ye wasn’t lying about getting her permission before recording the track. In an interview for the June issue of GQ, Kim said she had footage of the phone call.
Today she dropped the footage.
“I think this is a really cool thing to have,” West says in the clip after reading Swift the line that says, “For all my Southside niggas that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.” She replies, “I know, it’s like a compliment, kind of.”
Ye continued in the conversation, “Yeah, I mean, what’s dope about the line is it’s very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice.”
“I just had a responsibility to you as a friend,” Yeezy says, “you know, and thanks for being so cool about it.”
During the clip, West politely asks for the singer’s approval, which Swift seems to appreciate.
“For you to ask me if I’d be okay with it, I really appreciate it. I’d never expect you to tell me about a line in your song,” says Taylor.
