Swifties Outraged After ‘Obsessed’ Kanye West Name Drops Taylor Swift on New Album

Swifties Outraged After ‘Obsessed’ Kanye West Name Drops Taylor Swift on New Album

Kanye West dropped yet another song that mentions Taylor Swift by name, and Swifties aren’t taking it lightly.

The rapper mentions the Mad Woman singer in Carnival, which landed on his Ty Dolla $ing collaboration album Vultures 1. His lyrics say, “I made six Taylor Swifts / Since I had the Rollie on my wrist.”

The verse also calls out Elon Musk, Bill Cosby, R. Kelly, Sean “Diddy” Combs, and Game of Thrones. Swifties noticed the name drops after a video of Kanye rapping the lyrics went viral on X.

Cautionโ€”this video is NSFW.

“When youโ€™re in “obsessed with Taylor Swift” competition and youโ€™re opponents are Donald Trump and Kanye West,” a Taylor Swift fan wrote on the platform.

“Kanye Westโ€™s obsession with Taylor Swift is just creepy,” someone commented. “He would be irrelevant without her.”

“Kanye West trying to start a beef with Taylor Swift again after 7 years,” a Swiftie joked.

The Kanye West Scandal Continues a 15-Year Feud Between the Rapper and Taylor Swift

The song comes 15 years after the beef between Kanye West and Taylor Swift began. In 2009, West interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech when she was given the Moon Man for Best Female Video MTV Music Awards. He believed Beyonce should have won the category, and he made that clear to the audience.

In 2016, after the two had allegedly mended fences, West included crude lyrics about Swift in his song Famous.

“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that b***h famous,” he rapped.  

Swift made it clear that she was offended by the words, but West and his then-wife, Kim Kardashian said she’d permitted them to include the lyrics during a phone call. Kardashian even included a snippet of the conversation in her reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but the clip didn’t prove anything.

Swifties later found the entire call and proved that not only did the singer never tell the couple they could use the words in Famous, she wasn’t even aware they existed before the song hit the airwaves.
