In West’s track “Oh God,” he raps about providing for his famous family, “That’s why I charge the prices that I charge/ I can’t be out here dancin’ with the stars.”
The 42-year-old MC may have forgotten that his own wife, Kim Kardashian, competed on the series, perhaps because she was the first star eliminated in her season in 2008.
Kanye West mocked “Dancing with the Stars” in his new album “Jesus Is King.” The line didn’t sit well with “DWTS” professional Val Chmerkovskiy, who pointed out that West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, competed on the reality series.
“DWTS” pro Val Chmerkovskiy got wind of West’s diss and fired back in an Instagram video.
In the clip, Chmerkovskiy, 33, listens to the lines and looks confused.
As the track continues, images of West, as well as of Kardashian, 38, on “DWTS” appear.
At the end of the video, Chmerkovskiy jokes, “Yo Kanye, keep talking that smack about ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ You gonna catch this diss track. With some rhinestones on.”
He also referenced West’s feud with Drake in a caption, writing, “That new Ye album got me in my feelings.. #kanyewest #yeezy #dwts #beefstronganoff #shotsfired #drake #dontatme #lol.”
Kim wasn’t the only Kardashian to compete on “DWTS.” Her brother — West’s brother-in-law — Robert Kardashian competed on the show in 2011.
