Kanye West Finally Disses Ray J, It Was ‘Bound 2′ Happen
Music Kanye West Finally Disses Ray J, It Was Bound 2′ Happen Like Hip-Hop Media Training photo: Lloyd Bishop/NBC We no longer have to wonder what Kanye West thinks of Ray J’s Kim Kardashian diss ” I Hit It First .” West responded Monday when performing his song “Bound 2” during a surprise performance on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” West altered the song’s opening lyric to attack the R&B singer and reality TV star. “Brandy’s little sister lame and he know it now, when a real brother hold you down, you supposed to drown,” West rapped. West didn’t mention Ray J by name, but there is no denying that the lyrics are about him. West instead chose to refer to the Ray J as the younger sibling of Grammy-winning singer and actress Brandy. [Interview: Ray J tells Yahoo Music “I Hit It First” is not about Kim Kardashian] Though Ray J is commonly referred to as Brandy’s little brother, West took another dig by calling him a girl, “Brandy’s little sister.” The original lyric is, “All them other n-ggas lame and you know it now, when a n-gga hold you down, you supposed to drown.” Though Ray J had not responded via Twitter at press time, a few users came to his defense: How does @kanyewest call @RayJ @4everBrandy Little Sister yet he was wearing a Skirt when he said it LMAO ok #WhereTheyDoThatAt 7 Days til GTA V (@VerzatileFlows) September 10, 2013 I wonder what would @kanyewest would do if he see’s @RayJ at the same event as him. CRUMBS&CASTLES (@CrumbieBoii) September 10, 2013 Brandy also has not responded. The feud must be awkward for Brandy. West produced her 2004 hit ” Talk About Our Love ,” and rapped on the song and appeared in the video. During West’s recent interview on Kris Jenner’s talk show , he said the first time he met Kim Kardashian was when she was working as Brandy’s assistant. Kardashian and Ray J dated in the past and appeared in the 2007 sextape “Kim K Superstar.” In June, West and Kardashian had a daughter, North West. Aside from the slam on Ray J, West’s performance that featured Charlie Wilson singing the chorus, a boys choir and The Roots as the backing band, was incredible. Wilson, who received BET’s Lifetime Achievement Award in June, sounded perfect. West has received some flack for wearing a leather skirt.
