Kanye West is doubling (and tripling) down on his controversial “Famous” lyrics about Taylor Swift.
During a packed concert at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday, the rapper played the song three times, delivering the line, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have S3x. Why? I made that b***h famous.”
He even paused at one point to throw some extra shade at the pop star and critics that find the lyrics inappropriate.
“So many people told me, ‘You’ve got to take that line out of the song. You got to play it safe,’ but this is what rap music is,” West said. “This is what art is. Saying how you feel. And this song is how I feel.”
In a video shared on Twitter, some fans in the crowd can be heard chanting “F**k Taylor Swift” during West’s monologue.
Swift’s not the only person to get called out by West on his Saint Pablo tour. Earlier this month, the GRAMMY winner addressed comments made by his protégé, Kid Cudi, in which Cudi accused West and Drake for “talkin top 5” while “having 30 people write songs for them.”
West initially responded by claiming he “birthed” Cudi and telling him “Don’t ever mention ‘Ye name” during a show in Tampa, Florida, but later had a change of heart while on stage in Houston, Texas.
“I just wanted to take this time out to say Kid Cudi is my brother and I hope he’s doing well,” West said.
