Kanye West hints at violence towards Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend Pete Davidson in an ominous new song called City of Gods.
The rapper, 44, has been vocal about his jealous feelings towards the Saturday Night Live comedian, 28, amid his fledgling romance with his ex wife, 41.
‘This afternoon a hundred goons pullin’ up to SNL / When I pull up, it’s dead on arrival,’ he raps in the Fivio Foreign song, which also features Alicia Keys.
It comes after the musical artist said he ‘beat’ his ‘a**’ in the song Eazy with The Game.
And the clothing designer also recently cleared all his social media posts about his estranged wife Kardashian, 41, and their four young children, as the exes continue to publicly feud.
Musical diss: Kanye West has taken another lyrical swipe at Pete Davidson, this time making what seems like a threat
A source told TMZ that Pete is not bothered by the lyric.
‘Pete is focusing on his relationship with Kim and making sure she feels supported, the rest is just noise,’ said an insider.
The lyric can be heard around the 3:03 mark of the track. In another part of his verse he goes after Kim, stating: ‘And if I let ’em have my wife, n****s should thank me … With this Balenciaga and Balenci’ boots and a new blue Yankee.’
The song was released on Thursday and comes in the midst of turmoil between the former couple as they go through a messy public divorce.
Last month Kanye also called out Pete in the song Eazy as he rapped, ‘God saved me from that crash, just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass.’
Prior to this week’s musical release Kanye had taken to Instagram to post snaps of Kim and their children – North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, two – from her new Vogue magazine cover.
He wrote in the caption: ‘GOD PLEASE BRING OUR FAMILY BACK TOGETHER.’

But now all traces of the rapper’s family have been removed from his Instagram account, leaving only posts about his career and other ventures.
Earlier this month the Flashing Lights hitmaker had been locked in a public disagreement with his estranged wife, criticizing the Skims founder for letting their daughter North use TikTok without his permission.
He also alleged she had kidnapped their daughter Chicago, and even claimed she accused him of putting a hit on her.
The mogul hit back in a lengthy statement insisting she is the ‘main provider and caregiver’ for their children.
Development: In a new interview with People, Pete referred to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star as his ‘girlfriend’ for the first time
Meanwhile, Kim has moved on with Pete and the two have gotten more serious since they were first spotted together in October 2021.
In a new interview with People, the actor referred to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star as his ‘girlfriend’ for the first time.
As he spoke about life in the public eye he said, ‘Most of my daily life is getting into cars and showing up to a set.
‘Or, if I’m off, I just either hang with my friends or chill with my girlfriend inside. So I don’t do much.’
Revelation: Kim revealed that it was the pursuit of happiness that prompted her decision to file for divorce last year after nearly a decade of marriage
For Kim’s part, she’s been adamant about remaining composed throughout the split from Kanye.
Speaking to Vogue she said, ‘You could be so hurt or angry at your ex, but I think in front of the kids, it always has to be “Your dad’s the best.” Make sure you are your co-parent’s biggest cheerleader, no matter what you’re personally going through.’
Elsewhere in the chat, Kim revealed that it was the pursuit of happiness that prompted her decision to file for divorce last year after nearly a decade of marriage.

She explained: ‘For so long, I did what made other people happy and I think in the last two years I decided, I’m going to make myself happy. And that feels really good.
‘And even if that created changes and caused my divorce, I think it’s important to be honest with yourself about what really makes you happy. I’ve chosen myself.’
Kardashian doubled down on her comments, adding, ‘I think it’s okay to choose you.
‘My 40s are about being Team Me. I’m going to eat well. I’m going to work out. I’m going to have more fun, spend more time with my kids and the people who make me happy.’
Cryptic: On Friday Kim shared this note about going for her dreams and goals
The fashion icon also noted she plans to use her phone less as she noted, ‘I’m going to put my phone down. Unfollow if I don’t want to see something on Instagram. Khloé came up with the best phrase for that yesterday. She said, “Post and ghost.”‘
Seemingly sticking to that mantra, on Friday the mother-of-four dropped in on Instagram to share a positive message with her 285 million followers.
In Stories she posted a note that said, ‘If you’re out here working towards your dream and goals, I hope it works out for you. I’m rooting for you.’
