Is Kanye West ready to respond to Ray J after hearing “I Hit It First” over the weekend? Even though the song sounds insulting, in Ray J’s defense, he didn’t say anything on the song that wasn’t accurate. Unfortunately, he did take many shots at both Kanye and mother-to-be Kim Kardashian. Hollywood Life gives more info on Kanye’s reaction:
“Ray J is crazy” for releasing a song that overtly disses Kanye and Kim, a source close to the rapper tells HollywoodLife.com. Kanye is very upset over “I Hit It First,” which contains lyrics like, “Hit it from north/Brought her head down south/Now that I’m finished/She’s on to Mr. West.” He’s infuriated that Ray J would trudge up his and Kim’s sex tape from 2007 just to get a little attention. But the source assures us that Kanye sees the song for what it truly is — a publicity stunt. “Kanye don’t condone broke ass, jealous [guys] who be trying to bite off he and Kim’s fame just to stay, wait, just to become relevant.” Even though Kanye’s fuming, the source states that Yeezy won’t be giving Ray J the attention he wants. So we should probably stop hoping for Kanye to release a diss track of his own (that battle wouldn’t even be fair). Instead, don’t expect much of a response from Kim and Kanye, as Ray J fades back into obscurity. “Tell him to call Ye when he gets to the $100-million mark,” our source concludes. “Cause guess what — Ye ‘hit that’ first.”
It doesn’t seem Kanye will make a big deal about it and give Ray J the time of day with a response. Though the song is catchy, no one will take Ray J too seriously and neither will Kanye.
