Kanye West and Paul McCartney are rumored to be collaborating, according to New York Post’s Page Six. What’s more surprising is one song’s tentative title: “Piss on Your Grave.”
“West’s wife Kim Kardashian has been heard telling friends she was a little surprised they chose such a provocative name,” the report said.
Hip-hop producer Statik Selektah recently revealed that part of the inspiration behind his new jazz-infused album, What Goes Around, was defying a criticism from West. “Kanye sat there and listened for like 10 seconds and he pressed stop,” Selektah told MTV News. “and he was like: ‘It’s cool, but jazz is dead’.” Selektah thought West’s comment was “crazy” and moved forward with the project.
Here are more West-isms that have made the rapper an easy target for media jabs. Quotation above via gq.com.
