Kanye West references latest antisemitic antics in new song

Date:

The rapper formerly known as Kanye West released a new song on Wednesday night referencing his latest anti-Semitic remarks.

The disgraced hip-hop star, who now goes as Ye, released the new track Wednesday night amid a seemingly never-ending streak of controversy, including his outlandish appearance on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ show praising Adolf Hitler and Nazis.

At the end of the song, called “Someday We’ll All Be Free,” a clip of his interview with Jones plays, in which the conspiracy theorist tries to give Kanye a chance to retract his pro-Nazi statements.

“Can we just say, like, you like the uniforms, but that’s about it?” Jones can be heard saying in the song.

The song then cuts to Ye replying to Jones, “No, there are many things I love.” It then repeats the phrase “what I love” as the music fades away.

The 45-year-old also repeats the lyric “Tweeted deathcon / Now we past three” in the song, referencing his tweet where he said he wanted to go “death con 3” against Jews amid another strange and vile diatribe.

West seemed to be referring to the military term “defcon,” a five-level term used to denote the intensity of a threat to national security.

The roughly two minute tune uses a heavy sample from Donny Hathaway’s 1973 song “Someday We’ll All Be Free”.

The original lyrics were reportedly written by songwriter Ed Howard for Hathaway as he struggled with depression, and schizophrenia led to his suicide in New York City in 1979, according to Genius. The original song has since been interpreted by many as a black civil rights song.

Earlier on Wednesday, The Post reported that President of the World Jewish Congress Ronald Lauder had asked Apple Music and Spotify to remove West’s music from their streaming services, accusing them of capitalizing on Jewish hatred.

“Kanye West’s anti-Semitic tirades go beyond peddling conspiracy theories. He supports Nazism in its purest, most hateful form and is perhaps the only embodiment of the alarming rise of Jew-hatred in America,” the billionaire philanthropist wrote in a letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook and Spotify CEO Daniel Ek.

West, favored by StopAntisiemtism.org to claim the embarrassing title of “Antisemit of the Year,” has reportedly lost hundreds of millions of dollars after companies like Adidas, Gap, and Balenciaga all cut ties with him.
