Kanye “Ye” West Samples Kim Kardashian’s SNL Monologue
Kanye “Ye” West has made an interlude out of Kim Kardashian‘s SNL debut.
On Feb. 22, the artist formerly known as Kanye West celebrated the release of his follow-up album, Donda 2, with a listening event at the LoanDepot Park in Miami. And while the 44-year-old rapper featured a number of samples on Donda 2, fans in attendance were surprised to hear a few words from Kim used as the opener for his track “Sci-Fi.”
At the start of the single, Kim can be heard saying, “I married the best rapper of all time. Not only that—he is the richest Black man in America.” In reference to the former couple’s four kids: North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm, she continued, “A talented, legit genius who gave me four incredible kids.”
As Saturday Night Live viewers will remember, part of Kim’s quote stems from her hosting debut monologue back in October. At the time, Ye and Kim were “in a good place” following their split—but amid Ye’s current public pleas for reconciliation, things have changed since then.
