Kanye West, the US rapper officially known as Ye, has dropped a controversial animated music video for ‘Eazy’, his collaborative song with The Game.
The less than four-minute video — released on Wednesday — addressed the rapper’s divorce tussle with Kim Kardashian.
Kardashian, 41, filed for divorce in February 2021 — after seven years of marriage.
In November last year, the Grammy-winning artiste had said he plans to work out his strained relationship with the reality star.
But the rapper’s hopes of reuniting with the actress suffered a setback on Wednesday after a US court granted Kim’s motion seeking to be legally single.
In the music video released at about the same time with the court’s ruling, West slammed Pete Davidson, Kim’s new lover.
The 44-year-old rapper had consistently launched verbal attacks at the 28-year-old comedian over his relationship with Kim.
In the footage, West is seen rapping while sitting on top of a wooden coffin.
A claymation version of the rapper was later shown placing a sack over the head of a figure resembling Davidson and kidnapping him.
The ‘Jesus is King’ crooner then ties up the Davidson’s character and drives to an abandoned region where he buried the comedian alive up to his neck before sowing rose seeds around his head.
“God saved me from that crash, just so I could beat Pete Davidson’s ass” Ye raps as he stood on top of a garden.
He was later seen plucking the flowers and loading them inside a truck — in what is believed to be a reference to the truckload of flowers Kim received on Valentine’s Day.
At the end of the video, West made a reference to ‘Skete’ — a name he has used to described Davidson in recent weeks — with the line “everyone lived happily ever after/except skete you know who/JK he’s fine” showing on the screen.
The video has continued to elicit intense reactions, with some expressing concerns over Davidson’s safety.
