Kanye West Previews ‘Cruel Summer’, Possibly Refers To Kim Kardashian As “My Perfect Bitch”
The rapper pulled up to NYC’s PH-D Rooftop Lounge around 1:30 a.m. Saturday morning with a curious companion — instead of girlfriend Kim Kardashian on his arm, Yeezy walked in with Leonardo DiCaprio. (“Kanye West and Leonardo DiCaprio walk into a bar” has gotta be the beginning of some great joke.) Inside the club, which was already in the throes of celebrating DJ Reach’s birthday, the pair joined “a big, VIP table full of models” before West headed up to the DJ booth to play 45 minutes of new material from Cruel Summer — including a song that made a not-so-subtle reference to Kim, as well as his ex (and Wiz Khalifa’s fiance) Amber Rose.
A source for the NY Daily News claims the tracks West played “sampled other music and included ‘a similar production style (to the one) he used on his wildly successful album with Jay-Z last summer, Watch The Throne.'”
The standout track (and the one destined to make headlines on blogs… such as this one) was a song with the chorus “My perfect bitch”, a tune that is said to lift its melody from German composer Carl Orff’s 1937 composition “Carmina Burana”.
“(He raps) verses about his search for the perfect woman and how he has now found the “perfect bitch,’ ” says the source. West also reportedly references the voluptuous body shapes of his ex Amber Rose and his current amour Kim Kardashian, further indicating that the song is based on his personal love life.
Yeezy closed off his set with his song “Cold” (previously released under the titles “Way Too Cold” and “Theraflu”), which also makes mention of Kardashian. ““I fell in love with Kim around the same time she fell in love with him,” raps West, referencing Kim’s 72-day husband, Kris Humphries.
Kim Kardashian-as-muse isn’t exactly what we hoped for with Yeezy’s latest musical offering. But if it’s between hearing Kanye rap about Kim or hearing Kim sing herself, we’d gladly take the former.
