Kanye West Releases New Track That Attacks Bills Cosby And Nike And Reaffirms His 2020 Presidential Ambitions

Kanye West has launched a withering attack on Bill Cosby in his latest track – which reaffirms his presidential aspirations and takes down both Nike and former Miss Universe host Steve Harvey.

The surprise record Facts, released online on New Year’s Eve in the U.S., takes aim at Cosby just a day after he was charged with aggravated sexual assault.

In 2015, more than 50 women accused comedian of rape.

‘Do anybody feel bad for Bill Cosby?’ he asks.

‘Did he forget the names just like Steve Harvey?’ he says, in reference to the moment Harvey called out the wrong name as the winner of Miss Universe last week.

The song also accuses Nike of treating employees like slaves, making a direct comparison between the sports firm and its rival Adidas – which has sponsored Kanye since 2013.

He switched from Nike to Adidas for a $10 million deal.

‘Nike treat employees just like slaves / Gave LeBron a [billion] not to run away,’ he says.

‘Adidas you know they love it,’ he adds.

The rapper’s takedown of Nike comes just months after Jay Z – Kanye’s fellow Tidal founder – went on a rant about Nike’s monopoly of the commercial market.

It also reaffirms his intention to run for president in 2020, with the line: ‘2020, I’ma run the whole election’.

The lyrics also seem to take on Drake’s song with Future, Jumpman, by saying: ‘Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy, Just jumped over Jumpman.’

Kim Kardashian West, the rapper’s wife, promoted the track minutes before it was released with a tweet that echoed the lyrics: ‘Yeezy Yeezy Yeezy New Song About To Drop #Facts’.

Kanye first tabled his presidential ambitions at the MTV Video Music Awards in August.

‘As you probably could’ve guessed by this moment, I have decided, in 2020, to run for president.’

‘Y’all might be thinking right now, “I wonder did he smoke something before he came out here?” And the answer is yes, I rolled up a little something, I knocked the edge off,’ he said. LYRICS TO YEEZY’S SURPRISE TRACK

Dirt and grime and filth inside
The story of my lifetime
I cheat and steal and never feel
The pain of a brother, your dirty mother
Ha, ha, ha, look how far we are
Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy just jumped over Jumpman
Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy just jumped over Jumpman
Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy, I feel so accomplished
I done talked a lot of shit but I just did the numbers

Herzog and Adidas, man you know they love it
If Nike ain’t have Drizzy, man they wouldn’t have nothin’, woo!

If Nike ain’t have Don C, man they wouldn’t have nothin’, ooh!

But I’m all for the family, tell ’em get your money

Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy, they line up for days
Nike out here bad, they can’t give shit away
I stuck to my roots, I’m like Jimmy Fallon
I ain’t dropped the album but the shoes went platinum

Every time I talk they say I’m too aggressive

I was out here spazzin’, all y’all get the message?

On the field I’m over reckless, on my Odell Beckham

2020, I’ma run the whole election
I’ve been trending years, y’all a couple days

Yeezy in the house and we just got appraised
Nike Nike treat employees just like slaves
Gave LeBron a billi’ not to run away
10 thousand dollar fur for Nori, I just copped it
Your baby daddy won’t even take your daughter shoppin’

I done wore designers I won’t wear again
Make them niggas famous, they get arrogant
Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy just jumped over Jumpman
Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy just jumped over Jumpman
Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy, this is pure luxury
I give ’em grey poupon on a DJ Mustard
If you ain’t poppin’ shit then why you rap for? Haaan?

Plus Kimoji just shut down the app store
And we made a million a minute, we made a million a minute

(We did)
Yeah, we made a million a minute, we made a million a minute

Do anybody feel bad for Bill Cosby?
Did he forget the names just like Steve Harvey? (Yo!)

Tell Adidas that we need a million in production (Yo!)

I done told y’all, all I needed was the infrastructure

Now we hottest in the streets, it ain’t no discussion

James Harden, Swaggy P runnin’ up the budget
Keep the work at my baby mama’s mama’s house

I’m a jerk, you need to work, you need to call my spouse

Yeezy, Yeezy, take a picture with me on Rodeo
Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy, I might do my own hotel
Couches, couches, couches, couches, which one should I pick?

I need extra deep, I like my bitches extra thick
Every time I see the news, man it bring me home
Call up DJ Mano, shout out Twilite Tone
We just blessed to be alive, yeah ain’t that the truth?

So let’s celebrate the life of Timbuck2
Timbuck2, Timbuck2, Timbuck2
Timbuck2, Timbuck2
Ha, ha, ha, look how far we are
