Kanye West raps about wanting to 'beat Pete Davidson's ass' in new song with The Game
- Ye mentioned Pete Davidson in "Eazy," a new song with The Game.
- Davidson and Ye's estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, reportedly began dating in 2021.
Ye — the rapper formerly known as Kanye West — called out Pete Davidson in a new song.
On Friday, the "Famous" rapper dropped a new single titled "Eazy" with fellow rapper The Game. The song included a line about Davidson, 28, who's been romantically linked with West's estranged wife, Kim Kardashian.
"God saved me from that crash/ just so I can beat Pete Davidson's ass," Ye, 44, said.
Davidson, a cast member on "Saturday Night Live," reportedly began dating Kardashian, 41, in late 2021 after she filed for divorce from Ye that February. The former couple was married for seven years and have four children: North, 8; Saint, 6; Chicago, 4; and Psalm, 2.

Ye also touched on his divorce in the song — calling it the "best divorce ever" — and moving across the street from Kardashian. It was previously reported that Ye, who's dating Julia Fox, purchased the home amid the legal proceedings.
"If we go to court, we'll go to court together/ Matter of fact, pick up your sis, we'll go to courts together," he said.
"I got love for the nannies, but real family is better/The cameras watch the kids, y'all stop takin' the credit," Ye said. "Non-custodial dad, I bought the house next door/What you think the point of really bein' rich for?"
He continued: "Boujee and unruly, y'all need to do some chores/ Rich ass kids, this ain't yo mama's house."
The song's release came as he appeared in a clip promoting an upcoming interview with Hollywood Unlocked. While speaking with the outlet's founder, Jason Lee, Ye detailed an alleged altercation between him and a man that occurred on Thursday in Los Angeles, according to local affiliate Fox 11.
The incident reportedly happened after a man asked Ye for an autograph but was instead punched in the face. No arrests have been made, but Ye is currently under investigation, an LAPD spokesperson confirmed to Insider.
"So as far as the paparazzi goes, right, like, it wasn't a fan," Ye told Lee. "It was 3 a.m. in front of the warehouse. I'm saying, 'You don't know what I'm dealing with right now.' I just finished these two songs, I came from the studio. I created the record, this impromptu shoot, and my cousins went and did really deliver the mission."
Ye continued, accusing the man of having "an attitude."
"And this dude just, he just had this real attitude, like, 'Whatchu gonna do? And see that?' Imma just tell you, that blue COVID mask ain't stop that knockout, you know what I'm saying," Ye said.
When Lee asked if it was "the taunting, the disrespect, the disregard for your privacy" that set him off, Ye agreed.
"It's all of that, but that's what Hollywood be," he said, adding that he believed the person who asked for the autograph only wanted it to make money.
"This is the same as the paparazzi, this is not a fan. This is someone who is using your image, who probably never listened to your songs, are ones that are like, 'This is my song, for real?" he said.
Ye later blasted media outlets for covering the reported incident, according to Entertainment Tonight.
"This is from the horse's mouth. I told you all before, y'all are not fit to be in charge of my narrative. I told you before, I am taking my narrative," Ye said.
Representatives for Ye, Kim Kardashian, and Pete Davidson did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
