Kanye West released a surprise track yesterday titled “XTCY,” and while you’ll only need one guess to decipher which drug the rapper is referring to, you’ll need a few more guesses to understand why West discussed sexual interest in his wife Kim Kardashian-West’s sisters.
“You got a sister-in-law you would smash? I got four of em”

The song, which was produced by West and DJ Clark Kent, includes the distinct lines, “You got sick thoughts/I got more of ’em/You got a sister-in-law you would smash?/I got four of ’em.”
Naturally, the verse raised a few eyebrows among listeners, with many stumped at his admission. Despite West stressing that he came up with this verse (and others of a sexual nature) while high on the party drug, not everyone was convinced about its relevance.
Check out some reactions to the line and the song overall below.
XTCY by Kanye goes hella hard .. we might get old Kanye back. @kanyewest

Kanye made me cry this morning. I’d recommend 10/10 everyone go to his page and listen to XTCY. I’m in tears, because he might be the best person in the world.

Kanye West needs to go back to making music that sounds good instead of prioritising scandal #XTCY

the amount of people I've seen using XTCY as evidence that Kanye has changed like he hasn't been rapping that wild sex shit since the very beginning is appalling

Get off your high horse people. Fuck this “I’m offended generation” #XTCY #KanyeWest #kanye #weloveyoukanye

So Kanye released a song called “XTCY” and it’s about lusting after his sister in laws… Just when you thought the sunken place couldn’t sink any deeper…
