Ray J Plans To Respond To Kanye West’s “Famous” Video With A Clapback Track
Several months after claiming that Kanye West’s music video for “Famous” put a strain on his relationship, reports are coming in that Ray J is ready for his musical revenge against the Chicago rapper.
The musician says that he will be releasing a song and video ironically titled “Famous,” which will appear on his upcoming album Raydemption and will feature Chris Brown.
“You can’t fault me and Chris for responding to all the things that have been done about us [in the media] over the last few months,” says Ray J in an interview with Overheard about the track.
The visual album will drop exclusively on the streaming-service LookHu. The site’s CEO Byron Booker says that “Famous” will be “a controversial record in which Ray sets the record straight, reclaims his power and moves forward,” while Brown is “going to be talking about his rendezvous with certain celebrities in his past, as well as certain women that he helped catapult to fame,” on his part of the song.
When asked by Entertainment Tonight about his nude depiction in West’s controversial June release, Ray J said that “I’m not part of nothing crazy. I walk down a good path. [My fiancée] tripping. It’s all bad in my world, and that ain’t cool. Don’t put me part of nothing that’s weird, that don’t make no sense.” Chris Brown took his depiction in the video in stride, posting a picture to Instagram writing, “This ni**a KANYE CRAZY, talented, but crazy.”
This wouldn’t be the first time Ray has clapped back at West. He released a song in 2013 titled “I Hit It First,” which is about his past and very public relationship with West’s now-wife, Kim Kardashian.
