Kanye West would have compared his marital home with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian to a “prison” on his new record, recalling that he had “escaped Calabasas”.
West, 44, hosted a listening party in Las Vegas on Sunday for his new songs, with a track, “Welcome to My Life,” detailing his separation from the reality TV star and his failed presidential bid.
The Sun quoted an insider who explained that the song is “very deep” and “sad”, with West “reflecting on her marriage to Kim.”
“He talks about the kids and mentions that she takes everything. After playing this song, he stopped for about two minutes and cried. It was really dark, ”the source added.
The album – the rapper’s tenth – is called “Donda”, in honor of his late mother, who died in 2007 from complications following cosmetic surgery. She was 58 years old.
Two of the guests at the exclusive shindig included web personality Justin Laboy and basketball star Kevin Durant.
“Kanye played his new album for me and @ KDTrey5 last night in Vegas”, Laboy tweeted. “The production is light years from his time, and the bars sound like he’s broke and hungry trying to sign again. Any artist who [plans] falling soon should just push it back. He followed up with an all-caps capsule review: “ALBUM OF THE YEAR”.
Earlier this year, Page Six exclusively reported that the A-list couple were breaking up. West and Kardashian tied the knot on May 24, 2014 in Florence, Italy, and had four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
Last month, at a special Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion, the founder of SKIMS – who had probably not yet heard “Welcome to My Life” – had only kind words about her. ex-husband.
“He was my first friend for a long time, so I don’t see that going away,” she told Andy Cohen. “I’ll be Kanye’s biggest fan forever. He is the father of my children. Kanye will always be part of the family.
