The man that President Obama referred to as “a real jerk” is coming to the defense of one of the most disliked women in America. In his new song “Theraflu,” the rapper who did not grow up on the streets and came out of art school, raps about falling for fame-loving Kim Kardashian and her quickie relationship with New Jersey Nets power forward Kris Humphries.
“And the whole industry want to f*** your old chick
Only n**** I got respect for is Wiz
And I admit I fell in love with Kim
‘Round the same time she fell in love with him
Well that’s cool, babygirl do your thing
Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team”
(Kim is Kim Kardashian, and the “him” is Kris Humphries, as Jay-Z is a part owner of the New Jersey Nets, Humphries’ team.)
Is this guy for real? As a minority owner of the New Jersey Nets, it’s fairly obvious that Jay-Z has no influence with players coming to or being let go from the team. The only good player they have had since Jay-Z bought into the Nets, Deron Williams, just informed the team that he is not returning to play for them next year. Also if Jay-Z had any influence at all, Dwight Howard would be playing center for the struggling franchise, but the Nets couldn’t get the deal done even with Howard begging to be traded anywhere.
Kanye shows the world again what a punk he is by not referring to Humphries by name, maybe because Kanye West stands at about 5’6″ and Humphries is 6’9″, 235 lbs. But ask yourself this, would a rapper from the streets like DMX or Fifty not mention Humphries by name? Hell no.
