Kanye West unexpectedly dropped a new song last night. It’s called “Thera-flu,” which, after you listen to it, sounds like a not so veiled reference to the therapy he gets from rapping about his life instead of free publicity for the cold medicine. As our friend Chris Black tweeted, “The new Kanye song sounds like it was written by an editor at US Weekly.”
Apparently, when Amber Rose broke up with West she suspected he was actually in love with Kim Kardashian. And yes, this was around the time that Kim was marrying Kris, but as we now know, that union wasn’t meant to be. Flash forward to last month, Kim was on in Paris for Kanye’s show rocking those beaded Guissepe Zanotti heels and sending the rumor mill into overdrive yet again. So on “Theraflu,” West raps, “The only n*&%@ I got respect for is Wiz, and I’ll admit I fell in love with Kim, around the same time she’d a fell in love with him. Well that’s cool baby girl do your thang, lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team…” Of the infamous shoes, he adds, “$6000 pair of shoes, I made it to the Paris news.”
So will Kim and Kanye hook up and live happily ever after? The tabloids can only hope! As for the other pressing question, yes, he does rap about Thera-flu. “Way too cold I promise you need some Thera-flu, get the Thera-flu…” There’s an Anja Rubik reference, too.
