Kanye West has addressed the high profile cheating scandal involving Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian.

Last night, the rapper held a listening party for his new album 'YE' in the rocky mountains of Wyoming, where he previewed his new music to an audience filled with friends, family and music industry figures.

Did Kanye West Just Diss Drake On His New Album?

The album is stacked with namedrops and references, including a jab at Khloe Kardashian's basketball player partner who allegedly cheated on her while she was pregnant with the couple's baby.

"All these thots on Christian Mingle / That’s what almost got Tristan single," West raps on one of the tracks, alluding to Thompson's infidelity and blaming the drama on the faith-based online dating site.

Elsewhere in the album, West also appears to throw shots at Drake on the song 'Make No Mistake' in response to the Canadian rapper calling him out on his Pusha T diss track 'Duppy Freestyle'.

West also appears to address his controversial comments about slavery being a “choice" and recalls his wife Kim Kardashian's dramatic response at the time.

“Wife calling screaming saying we’re about to lose it all I had to calm her down ‘cos she couldn’t breathe, I told her she could leave me now but she wouldn’t leave,” Kanye raps. “This is what they mean for better or for worse huh?”
