The last few years have been notable for Kanye West. Between running for president, going through a break up with Kim Kardashian and dropping his latest album Donda, Kanye’s been busy. He recently made headlines for dating Julia Fox from the popular film, Uncut Gems. Some questioned their relationship, but Fox confirmed it’s not a “PR stunt.” On the Forbidden Fruits podcast, the actress said, “There’s always people that think every single celebrity scandal is a setup. I personally don’t.” Earlier today, a new song was leaked on Twitter where the musical genius raps about Kardashian’s new boyfriend. The song is called “My Life Was Never Easy”. “God saved me from the crash / just so I can beat Pete Davison’s ass,” is one of the lyrics from the song.
