Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is low-key making big Ye changes. The hip-hop veteran quietly updated his “I Thought About Killing You” track to now include a lyric about slavery.
On Ye’s revamped version, he clearly references his recent “slavery was a choice” TMZ drama.
On ‘I Thought About Killing You’, there is a new line that can be heard on the last verse of the song. After “If I wasn’t shinin’ so hard, wouldn’t be no shade,” the rapper now rhymes, “Sorry but I chose not to be no slave.” Interestingly, this change has only appeared on the clean version of the song on almost all platforms — the dirty version of the song still doesn’t feature the line.

To add to those stats …
— #1 iTunes Album in 63 countries.
— #1 Spotify global peak position.
— #1 Apple Music album in 83 countries. (TMZ)
