The Grammy Award winner rapped, "I am limelight / Blue print / Five mics / Go-getter rhyme like / Shoulda been signed twice / Most imitated / Grammy nominated / Hotel accommodated / Cheerleader prom-dated."

The "Gold Digger" artist went on to call back to his younger years and the city where he spent his childhood. "But two words / Chi-Town raised me, crazy/ So I live by two words: 'F— you, pay me.'"

The famed rapper has been in headlines nearly constantly since before release of his highly anticipated new album, Donda. Not only did the billionaire artist spark rumors of rekindled romance when he left the third listening party hand-in-hand with his soon-to-be ex-wife Kim Kardashian, but some think his lyrics imply he was unfaithful during their 7 years of marriage.

In the track "Hurricane" he raps, "Here I go actin’ too rich / Here I go with a new chick / And I know what the truth is / Still playin’ after two kids / It’s a lot to digest when your life always movin."

A source spilled to Page Six, "The song is in a way his testimony of everything he did wrong and taking accountability for their marriage breakdown," they said. "If you look closer to the lyrics he is referring to his infidelity during his marriage with Kim, even after two kids."

These rumors have only continued to build after an insider dished the "Heartless" singer once bragged about hooking up with former tour-mate Christina Milian.

Jeen-yuhs is currently slated for release on Netflix sometime in 2022.
