his new song he wishes that “Someday We’ll All Be Free.”

Launched on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones‘ Infowars website, the song samples the 1973 Donny Hathaway song of the same name and hears him reference his vow to abstain from sex before marriage, among other things.

“Wakin’ up to ‘I can’t do this anymore’ texts (Woo)/And the Bible said I can’t have any more sex ’til marriage (Woo, woo). No drip ’til Paris (Paris)/The meek shall flourish (Flourish)/So where’s my heiress?” he raps.

He also makes mention of the antisemitic comment he posted on Twitter in early October. 

“I ain’t never rocked with none of y’all, no way (No way)/And I’m pullin’ up in that white OJ (Ayy),” he rhymes. “Used to wear watch filled with the O’Sheas/Jackson if you nasty/Tweeted ‘death con,’ now we past three(It won’t be long, take it from me, someday—)/Tweeted ‘death con,’ now we past three.”

At the end of the song, he includes an audio clip of his interview with Jones, during which he said he loves Adolf Hitler.

Ye’s new song was met with mixed reviews. “Kanye West put out a song saying ‘someday we’ll all be free’ after praising Nazis… the least free society to ever exist. Something is not right with Donda’s son,” one person tweeted.

Another Twitter user, who appears to be a fan of the track, tweeted, “Kanye west just dropped the hardest song of 2022 after getting ‘cancelled.'”
