Kanye West has finally dropped his latest album, the first after he and Kim Kardashian split last February. His Donda album is dedicated to his late mother but there’s more to it than meets the eye. After several listening parties and fanfare, fans can now listen to the rapper.
One of his songs, “Hurricane”, became controversial after multiple sources confirmed that it tells about how the multi-awarded rapper cheated on Kim after welcoming their second child. In fact, his infidelity serves as the inspiration for the said song.
An insider said, “The song is in a way his testimony of everything he did wrong and taking accountability for their marriage breakdown.”
In “Hurrican”, Kanye raps, “Here I go actin’ too rich / Here I go with a new chick / And I know what the truth is / Still playin’ after two kids / It’s a lot to digest when your life always movin’.
So who’s the new chick that he was referring to? If you’re wondering if it’s Irina Shayk then you’re wrong. A source explained, “If you look closer to the lyrics he is referring to his infidelity during his marriage with Kim, even after two kids.”
Further, the song also talks about the 44-year-old rapper and their multimillion-dollar mansion which he goes home to as well as his struggles with alcohol.
He raps, “Architectural Digest, but I needed home improvement / Sixty-million-dollar home, never went home to it. Genius gone clueless, it’s a whole lot to risk / Alcohol anonymous, who’s the busiest loser?”
It turned out that despite his infidelity, their marriage didn’t end there because they remained together and had two more children before Kim called it quits. His presidential run and those cryptic tweets on his Twitter account together with his infidelity and alcohol abuse put a strain on their marriage which led the reality star to finally end it.
Rumors of the two separating have been circulating since last year but it wasn’t until February this year that Kim finally filed for divorce.
Although the two are no longer together, they’re still supporting each other and co-parenting their children. The KKW Beauty founder has been showing her support for Kanye since his “Donda” promo tour started. She’d been present to his listening events.
