Kanye West raps about Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal on new album

Kanye West has referenced Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal on his new album, Ye.

The 40-year-old rapper isn’t afraid to play with fire when it comes to his music as he brought up the 27-year-old basketball player’s infamous infidelity, which saw him smooch another woman in a club in New York just days before his girlfriend Khloe Kardashian gave birth to their daughter True, last month.

The “Bound 2” hitmaker — who is married to Khloe’s sister Kim Kardashian West — blamed Tristan’s cheating on the online dating service Christian Mingle as he rapped: “All these THOTS on Christian Mingle… That’s what almost got Tristan single.”

It seems Kanye’s family was the main inspiration for the seven-track album as he also brought up his rebuked remark about slavery, in which he claimed the 400 years of slavery was a “choice” made by those enslaved, and how his wife Kim rang him up “screaming” when she got wind of it because she feared they’d “lose it all.”

He rapped: “Wife calling screaming saying we’re about to lose it all, I had to calm her down ’cause she couldn’t breathe, I told her she could leave me now but she wouldn’t leave. This what they mean when they say ‘For better or for worse, huh?’ “

This isn’t the first time Kanye has pushed the boundaries with his lyrics as he hit the headlines two years ago when he claimed he made his arch-enemy Taylor Swift famous and insinuated that they may end up in bed together one day.

On “Famous,” which he premiered at his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show in New York, he spat, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that b—- famous.”
