“Damn, you need to be locked up/Nah, we need a bigger hot tub”
Kanye West has shared a new track called ‘XTCY’, in which he raps about wife Kim Kardashian West’s sisters.
The rapper made his return earlier this year with the surprise tracks ‘Lift Yourself’ and ‘Ye vs. The People’ ahead of new album ‘Ye‘.
‘XTCY’ appeared online today (August 11) after DJ Clark Kent shared a link to it on his Twitter page. “Sitting in the studio with my man @KanyeWest and he said… ‘Clark, let that new ‘XTCY’ joint go!!!” he tweeted. “So… ENJOY: NEW KANYE WEST.”
The track opens with West rapping: “You got sick thoughts?/I got more of ’em/You got a sister-in-law you would smash?/I got four of them/You did something unholy to them pictures/Damn, you need to be locked up/Nah, we need a bigger hot tub.“

Although Kent referred to ‘XTCY’ as “new”, it’s possible it was originally intended to be included on ‘Ye’. A photo shared by West in June showed a whiteboard with the tracklist for his collaborative project with Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghosts, as well as a partially completed tracklist for his latest solo record.
Only two tracks were listed for ‘Ye’ in that picture – ‘Wouldn’t Leave’, which appeared on the final album, and a song called ‘Extacy’.
Meanwhile, West appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this week (August 9), where he discussed his support of Trump and his mental health.
When reminded by the host of his criticism of George W. Bush and asked what made him think Trump cares about black people, the rapper went silent. Seconds later, the show cut to a commercial break.
