Listen to the OG Version of Kanye’s “Famous” ft. Young Thug

Kanye’s The Life of Pablo track “Famous” is easily the most controversial song he’s released in some time, mainly because of the infamous Taylor Swift lyric and the ensuing backlash and conflict that it caused. Well, an early draft of the song, initially called “Nina Chop”, has found its way onto the internet and it’s safe to say that this version is even more controversial.

This demo of the track does not feature the Rihanna hook, but instead gives more shine to the Nina Simone sample Ye chopped up, and also features a couple of verses from Young Thug. Most notably though, Kanye’s Taylor lyric is a bit different here as he raps “I feel like Taylor Swift still owes me sex”. Then, he repeats the line but swaps in the name of his ex Amber Rose.
