Kanye West: ‘You got a sister-in-law you would smash? I got four of them’

Smiling on the inside

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

True or false: if Donda West was still alive, would Kanye Kardashian be a thing? Would Donda have shut down Kanye’s whole Kardashian fascination? Would Kanye have “needed” the warm embrace of the Kardashian-Jenner family? I don’t know. We’ll never know. What I do know is that Kanye has always seemed genuinely close to Kim’s family. He seems to adore Khloe in particular, and Kris Jenner is basically his surrogate mother. He loves that his kids are growing up around their cousins too, and I think he’s particularly close to Kourtney’s kids. And all this time, he’s been thinking about how much he wants to sleep with all of his sisters-in-law. Ugh.

Kanye West has surprised fans with a new song — and it contains a surprising lyric about Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian as well as Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Early Saturday morning, the rapper, 41, released “XTCY” with DJ Clark Kent tweeting a link to the track which West retweeted soon after.

“You got sick thoughts? I got more of ’em/ You got a sister-in-law you would smash? I got four of them,” the husband of Kim Kardashian raps in the first verse.

The cover art for West’s latest single, revealed via download, is a photo of his wife with her four sisters at Kylie’s 21st birthday bash, which the father of three also attended at Delilah, a restaurant-lounge in Los Angeles on Thursday night ahead of the Kylie Cosmetics mogul’s birthday at midnight on Friday.

The premiere of “XTCY” follows the June 1 release of West’s album YE, his first full-length project since 2016’s The Life of Pablo.

Gross. I can’t. I don’t want to think about this too hard, okay? Because it will be a downward spiral. I’ll just say that Kanye should know by now that not everything needs to be shared in his music. All this time, I thought Kanye just saw his sisters-in-law as his actual sisters. Not so much.

It’s our 21st birthday

    Heaven help us if he makes a video for this song….

  2. S says:

    To men like Kayne and Trump and, heck, even women like the Kardashians, finding females desirable sexual objects is the greatest compliment a man can pay to a women, so I’m sure he thinks this is a very nice thing to say, despite how incredibly barf-y it actually is.

    • MattyLove says:

      And you know what else? The Kardashian/Jenner women may also think it’s the greatest compliment a man can give to a woman. Blechhhh!

      • Alexandria says:

        Was about to say the same thing. He probably thinks it’s a compliment to them and they may also feel the same!

    • Yes Doubtful says:

      It’s so sad, but true. Kim, Kylie and now Khloe only think they are of value if they are perceived as sexy and f**kable.

      • Stella Alpina says:

        Then they will have a truly difficult time when they get older, their looks fade to nothing, and they are no longer seen as desirable. They won’t have any charming personality to compensate because they are vapid inside. The results of gravity and decades of tanning can’t be undone by plastic surgery, either. No surgeon can convincingly make someone look like she’s 25 again.

        Best of luck to these wealthy fools.

    • NΞΞNΔ ZΞΞ says:

      ITA… they probably like it, even if they pretend otherwise. For people like them it’s powerful reinforcement of their value and existence as reality TV and social media celebs.

    • Enormous Coat says:

      And being who they are, the Kardashians will monetize this. They really are the void staring back at you.

      • RusssianTo? says:

        Guess I’m equally disturbed that “smash” is an euphemism for sex. Unacceptable.

      • Ramona Q. says:

        Are we sure he doesn’t mean he wants to beat them up because they are so annoying? That’s what smash really means: verb 3. to hit or strike (someone or something) with force. – dictionary.com

      • AnnaKist says:

        Oooooooooh, Ramona, I really, really hope that’s what he means…! But sadly, no. Kanye West is a gronk.

      • minx says:

        It means having sex… like hitting that, tapping that, etc.

      • Cupcake says:

        @Ramona and @Annakist -

        It’s disturbing that you think hitting a woman is remotely okay.

    • Veronica S. says:

      I was going to say, it’s probably not even that he has a particular interest in them, more that misogynistic men view women through a lens of sexual attraction. It’s the narcissism inherent to the idea of patriarchy that a woman’s fundamental worth is how much a man wants to have sex with her.

  3. TheHufflepuffLizLemon says:

    Ehhh… honestly, this isn’t even in the Top Ten of effed up shit said by Kanye West. Like, they aren’t his sisters. I don think he’s actually hitting that. His friendship with Trump is an actual thing instead of a rap lyric, so I’m going to continue to be primarily grossed out by that.
    (Yes, I know people can be awful for more than one reason. I just can’t muster a ton of outrage for a gross rap lyric. I do think Donda West would have helped guide and influence Kanye better.)

    • MCV says:

      If Donda was alive he wouldn’t even be with Kim.

      • TheHufflepuffLizLemon says:

        Donda might have googled, watched the tape, and said… no child. Or if he was truly in love, tried to act as a balancing force for Kris. 🤷🏻‍♀️

      • HadleyB says:

        It doesn’t matter, she still raised him so she messed up. There are many people out there who have parents who have died who live as good humans and don’t make excuses that their parents died or have others do it for for them.

        I don’t know why the media or his “fans” keep saying ” if only Donda was alive” … your values don’t go out the door once your parents die.

      • Aotearovian says:

        Let’s not forget Donda died as a result of complications from a liposuction procedure. Pretty Kardashianesque,

    • Shannon says:

      Yeah, I’m just not that bothered by this lyric. If I was Kim or one of her sisters, it would probably bug me. But it’s a lyric and a rather clever rhyme, it kind of reminds me of some of Eminem’s early stuff. His Trump adoration bothers me so much more. Honestly, if I just heard the song and heard that line, I wouldn’t even blink.

  4. MCV says:

    I feel so bad for the little girls of that family, between the misogyny of their fathers and the body dismorphia of their mothers I don’t see a good future for them.

    • Yes Doubtful says:

      I do too, but Kendall and Kourtney have managed to stay relatively natural for that group so I hope there’s a chance one of those girls will grow up not wanting a fake, disportionate body.

  5. Chaine says:

    I would say yuck, except I don’t believe it for a minute because he is not into women.

    • minx says:

      My thought too.

    • Esmom says:

      I don’t know about that but I did get the feeling that it’s just lyrics…not a real reflection of his thoughts.

      • B n A fan says:

        Esmom I have the opposite feeling, I believe he meant he would like to smash his sisters in law. Remember this is the man who said he wanted to date KKW because he saw her sex tape with RayJ. Also, his wife has shown everyone her bits over and over, yet he’s not satisfied he still watches porn, and like to watch porn.

      • Esmom says:

        Oh, gross. And disturbing. Clearly I’m not up on his personal life.

      • jwoolman says:

        Remember that Kanye approved of Tyga “smashing” Kylie at such a young age. She was at most 15. Kanye said something about it was good to get in early.

    • FC says:

      Ha, yup. LOOK HOW STRAIGHT I AM.

  6. Lolo86lf says:

    Is it possible that Kanye has been psychologically affected by his wife’s family? He seems a bit different compared to 5 years ago.

    • K-Peace says:

      Yes, I agree with you, he seems a LOT different than he did 5 years ago. And to answer Kaiser’s question, I think that Kanye’s life would’ve taken a whole other trajectory if Donda hadn’t died. I think she would’ve steered him away from the Kardashians. IF he had even ever showed a bit of interest in them at all.–Which he might not have, if she were still around.

    • Naomi11 says:

      I’ve said it before, and I’ll keep saying it…. he’s never been the same since his mother passed away!

      • me says:

        @ Lady D

        That is the truth. When you lose someone close to you there is no way you are ever the same again. I know this from experience. Nothing is ever the same.

      • LaBlah says:

        Preach Lady D. Profound grief changes you on a fundamental level. I lost the love of my life two years ago and I’m only now start to realise all the ways I think, approach things, react etc very differently to the way I did for the 40 years before that.

  7. Theodora says:

    Well… Pretty sure most straight men would agree with him, since most of them have a sister-in-law or wife’s/ gf:s female relative/ friend they would “smash”.

    It’s just a fact of life.

    • joanne says:

      for most men it is not a fact of life. most men have integrity and love their wives. even those that “lust in their hearts” would never act on it or express it in such a crass manner. many men see women as people not just objects for their sexual gratification. you need to associate with better men.

    • Lady D says:

      I’ve never heard the term used that way. For me it’s disturbing, and if a guy come up to me and said he wanted to smash me, I’d probably head the other way rapidly while dialing 911. It sounds violent to me, not sexy at all.

    • MaryContrary says:

      Not sure who’s in your life but ew. No.

    • geekychick says:

      I don’t know what kind of men you have around yourself, but no, in my community and society, it is not normal way of thinking. your sisters in law should be your close(r) family. and the fact that kanye and these men you’re talking about are viewing their female family members as fu***able/not f****able is very sad and very strong argument that they don’t perceive women as persons, but sexual objects only.
      to me, that is abominable.

    • Nomuda J says:

      Please don’t speak for me. Especially when you’re this wrong.

    • Ange says:

      There was still absolutely no reason to articulate this thought to the public. He’s been in their lives as a friend since the youngest two were little kids!

    • LaBlah says:

      There are certainly men and women who have in laws that they find attractive and perhaps would even quite like to have sex with. Very few would publicise those thoughts to a worldwide audience in such a vulgar way. I say this as a Scottish union official who’s spent most of my working life with maritime workers. I’m not exactly easy to offend but this is gross, even my most throwback unreconstructed Glasgow bloke wouldn’t disrespect his wife this way.

      Also I’m LaBlah’s lesser half not her

  8. Pamm says:

    This man is really sick. For him to even voice out this thought, only God knows what is going on behind bthe scenes. Did Kim not listen to this before it’s release? Gosh, I feel like throwing up. The pix of the Kardashians above looks eerie, sick and unreal or is it just my imagination?

    • Christin says:

      That group photo looks bizarre. Beyond the plastic looks and two gallons of oil, they have the depth of a puddle.

    • me says:

      All Kim cares about is attention…and those lyrics will help out the whole family ! Also, is PMK jealous he didn’t mention her as “smashable” too?

  9. HelloSunshine says:

    People keep focusing on that line but the next lines are worse I think. I believe he implies that he does something inappropriate with a photo of the sisters. I’m not surprised by anything he says anymore but this made me feel icky. I miss old, pre Kardashian Kanye. I can’t say for sure he wouldn’t go off the deep end obviously but I feel like it hasn’t helped being associated with the name

    • JeanGrey says:

      Yep. He implies that he masturbates to their photos.
      Also disturbing that while he was on Kimmel, he was asked if his attitude/thoughts on women has changed now that he has daughters, and the first thought he has is nope, he’s addicted to p0rn. It was really skeevy for him to segue a question regarding how he sees women, including his little girls, into his love of p0rn. Kanye is sick, on several levels.

      • HelloSunshine says:

        Ugh I didn’t know that about the Kimmel segment. How does someone take a question about raising daughters and immediately start talking about pron? I feel like I need a hot shower after reading that.

      • me says:


        Because he sees women as nothing more than sexual objects. He admits he was obsessed with Kim’s tape way before they even met. Wasn’t he also obsessed with having a male heir? Like North couldn’t be an heir?

  10. Cait says:

    About as classy as I would expect from anyone in the Kardashian circle.

  11. Lex says:

    I know there have been gay rumours but really he seems more asexual than anything… he gives off zero vibes of being a sexual human
    This is all rap talk, posturing, peacocking…

  12. Other Renee says:

    It could have been worse. He could have said “I’ve got a mother in law I’d like to smash.” I think the whole world would have had a collective hurl.

  13. Rapunzel says:

    From “Jesus Walks” to “I wanna bang my in-laws” Yesus, how the mighty have fallen.

    • Naomi11 says:


      “Jesus Walks” was a great song. I know longer listen to his music, because it’s become as trashy as he has become.

  14. crummycake says:

    Ewwww. . . . not appropriate, Kayne. This whole family disgusts me.

  15. Chris says:

    Ok, not up to scratch with current slang. Smash as in (abusive) or sexual as in (bang) G-d, feeling very old. Either way, Eeeugh. Next level messed up. So gross.

  16. Harryg says:

    I don’t like you Kanye and I don’t like your music or your fashion.

  17. Naomi11 says:

    I think he’s mother is rolling over in her grave seeing what her son has become.

  18. Paris says:

    Disgusting and disrespectful…

    Wait a minute! What about Kris Jenner? Oh, boy! He forgot about his mother-in-law! She will be offended!

  19. D says:

    Clearly Golddigger is about Kim

  20. Shannon says:

    It’s my personal theory that Donda would have shut this sh!t down a loooong time ago. I used to follow Kanye back in the day; he really went off the rails when he lost her and my heart broke for him. But she had a good head on her shoulders and I will say this – my oldest son is 23 and I don’t interfere in his dating life but if he dated a Kardashian I’d have to say something. They just seem toxic to men and I don’t say that lightly, maybe it’s just the optics of the situation, but I wouldn’t take chances with my baby boy and I don’t think Donda would have either, may she RIP.

    • Tia says:

      With all due respect. He’s a 41 year old man, he shouldn’t need a mommy to help him make better descions at this stage in his life.
      At this stage he basically wants to be white imoa. I used to buy everything he released but I could care less about his music now because his whole agenda is so regressive and detrimental to me as a black woman in this enviroment.

  21. Tia says:

    He’s as misogynistic as they come. As a woc I was done with this guy when he did his shilling for trump. Or suggested that tyga was smart when he groomed Kylie or made excuses for Bill Cosby . Turns out,as if it wasn’t already obvious, he’s got a lame fetish for white women, probably because they make him feel better about his status which lets face it is all he’s about at this point. He basically said he into black on white porn. And of course he trash talks his black ex girlfriend and calls her a slut and disgusting, so as a woc he’s not my ally.

    It’s also kind of weird that he thinks he’s some kinda trailblazer because he married a white woman as if it’s something new. My grandparents were a mixed raced couple in the 70s, that generation had to deal with the kind of prejudice Kimye will never face.

  22. Sandy says:

    Whew!! I’m so glad he is with them Kardashian, saves everyone else the embarrassment, 😁 when you date and marry someone for the wrong reasons.. this what you get😁

  23. Patty says:

    Water rises to its own level. Kanye is a trash human being so of course he accepted the embrace of equally trashy people.

  24. Lynne says:

    He made excuses for Cosby? Omg the kardashians can keep him.

  25. mtam says:

    Just came here to say the girl he’s with in the top photo seems more like a Kim impersonator, than actually Kim lol.

  26. minnie mouse says:

    One big Gross thought. Kanye you are one sick puppy!!!!

  27. Jen says:

    I’m halfway in the “Kris Jenner wrote that lyric because she knew it would get publicity” camp and halfway in the “he’s more disgusting than we thought”

  28. Stefanie says:

    The kardashian sisters are flattered for sure. They are wired like that.

  29. Adee says:

    His kids will listen to this one day and realize their father is discussing their aunts in a sexualized way. Now THAT bothers me.

    I always thought if you marry into a family, your sisters/brothers in law are looked at more like extended family, not in a desired perved over way.

    This family never stops the shock tactics.

  30. Mumbles says:

    Unless things have changed, I don’t agree that he’s close to Kris Jenner. A few years ago there was a profile of her in some respectable, non-tabloid publication (NYT, I’m thinking?) where the writer noted that Kris was pushing hard the idea that she was close to Kanye and the few times he was around, he had no interest in maintaining the charade, e.g. walking out of the room while she was talking to him.

    I remember at the time Yeezus had just been released and everyone was gushing what a genius was and thinking how funny that someone as pedestrian and shallow as Kris Jenner would think she would just be hanging out watching TV with Kanye.

    But of course this was years ago and things can change.

  31. RspbryChelly says:

    Khloé always seems to be the bf/husbands go to sister. Remember how close she was w Scott, like, super cringy close?
