(AllHipHop News) It appears Kanye West was looking to avoid another media firestorm like his recent feud with Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose. The Chicago rhymer mentioned both Taylor Swift and Ray J on his new album The Life Of Pablo, but Ye reportedly wanted to make sure neither artist took the lyrics as personal shots against them.
According to TMZ, Kanye reached out to Swift to inform her that his line "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that b*tch famous" was just a joke. Apparently, the pop star understood it was all in fun and gave Kanye her blessing to release the song.
A similar situation is said to have taken place between Kanye's camp and Ray J's camp. Yeezy responded to Ray's infamous 2013 song "I Hit It First" by rapping on T.L.O.P., "Me and Ray J would probably be friends if we wasn't in love with the same b*tch. You might have hit it first, but I'm rich, though."
TMZ also reports Kanye spoke with Ray's sister Brandy, and he asked the R&B singer to let her brother know the lyrics were not meant to be disrespectful. A representative for Kanye also connected with Ray's manager to double down that he was not trying to diss the reality TV personality. Ray J apparently has no hard feelings for Kanye or his wife Kim Kardashian.
