Kanye West debuted a new song titled “Closest Thing To Einstein”at 1 OAK nightclub in West Hollywood.
The cut, which features Kanye rapping over Jay Z’s “Where I’m From,” comes in at over seven-minutes long and features British singer-songwriter Sampha.
In addition to premiering his new record during his appearance at 1 OAK, Kanye also responded to Taylor Swift’s comments about his The Life Of Pablo track, “Famous.”
During her acceptance speech for Album Of The Year at last weekend’s Grammy Awards ceremony, Swift appeared to directly respond to the track’s controversial line, where Kanye raps: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous / I made that bitch famous.”
“I want to say to all the young women out there: there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame,” Swift said.
In response, Kanye maintained his view that Swift gave her blessings for the line prior to its release.
“ I called Taylor. Look, I said, ‘Taylor, I spoke to my wife about it.’ I said, ‘How do you feel about this line, Taylor?’ I was like, ‘Taylor, I feel like me and you might still sex.’ She was like, ‘Ooo, Kanye, I like that line.’ Then she won her award and said something completely different.”
