Here’s The Video of Kanye Calling Taylor Swift About “Famous”

For all my Southside niggas that know me best

I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex
Why? I made that bitch famous

One of the most stupidest beefs of the year has been the he-said, she-said over Kanye’s Taylor Swift line on “Famous.” After the song dropped, Ye caught a bunch of hell over what many interpreted as a misogynistic and degrading lyric, to which he countered that it was all just jokes and that he actually sought and received “approval” from Taylor before releasing the track. Swift had deined the allegation publicly, all while rebuking Kanye during her Grammy’s acceptance speech back in February where she railed against people “who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame.” Through her PR team, she also denied that Kanye discussed the line with her or that she approved it.

Last night Kim dropped footage of Kanye calling Taylor and reciting the lyric for her and it certainly does not sound like she had a problem with it at the time, telling Kanye that she appreciates him telling her about it and plotting about how she would address it in the media after it was released. Taylor later responded to the release of the video in an Instagram post (see below) where she seems to make it about the use of the word “bitch” in the lyric, but that argument runs counter to the theme of her Grammy’s speech where her problem seemed to be with Ye trying to take credit for her fame. In the video, she can clearly be heard speaking about the “famous” line and how she thought it would be funny. And obviously, she’s already been caught in a lie about the call not happening in the first place.

The whole situation is corny as hell, from the lyric approval, to the back and forth between Kim and Taylor, none of this shit is Hip-Hop. That being said though, Taylor Swift lied her ass off when the narrative didn’t fit into her immaculately crafted publicity facade and she just got exposed. Watch below.
