Is a Chris Brown and Kanye West beef in the works? The hip-hop industry wouldn’t be what it is without some good beef between performers. Hollywood Life reports that Kanye may have instigated the beginning of any potential beef by rapping about the “Loyal” singer’s relationship with model Karrueche Tran. The two have had an on-again-off-again relationship for the past five years, which has been the focus of plenty of gossip online and in magazines. So is the “Four Five Seconds” rapper just trying to be topical, or is he really throwing shade at the couple?
The song is “All Your Fault” by Big Sean, featuring Kanye West, and it’s Kanye’s rap that disses the couple — or rather, he appears to be dissing Chris Brown.
“Young Walt Disney, I’ma tell you truthfully
If you leave Mickey you gon’ end up with a Goofy
I imagine that’s what Chris told Karrueche…”
It looks like Kanye is saying that Chris Brown told Karrueche Tran that she won’t find anybody better than him. Never mind the fact that Goofy doesn’t even rhyme with Karrueche, was the lyric a jab at Brown, Tran, or both of them?
Fashion & Style writes that Kanye is definitely throwing shade at Brown and Tran, but what will result of it? Brown’s relationship with Tran has long been a public spectacle, with their latest break-up being just before the 2014 holiday season – though they reunited very quickly. Brown accused Tran of cheating on him with rapper Drake, which led to him publicly dissing her on Instagram. Perhaps it could be speculated that Kanye’s diss had more to do with Tran’s presumed infidelity than Brown being controlling and narcissistic.
Do you think Kanye had the right to publicly diss Chris Brown’s relationship in a song? Does he even have any room to talk? Kanye is half of one of the most polarizing relationships in the entertainment industry. Both he and Kim Kardashian have been the butt-end so many jokes and memes. Kanye has even been accused – jokingly of course –of controlling Kim right down to her wardrobe. Maybe Kanye is throwing some shade on Brown and Tran to draw attention away from his own high profile relationship. Of course, West has to deal with the embarrassment of his ex Amber Rose fighting with his sisters-in-law, so he certainly has a lot of nerve rapping about the relationships of others in the music industry.
