Kanye West shaded “Dancing with the Stars” in the lyrics to his new album “Jesus Is King,” and at least one of the professional dancers isn’t sitting idly by and letting the rapper get away with it.
In Kanye 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.”
After hearing the song, “Dancing with the Stars” pro Val Chmerkovskiy, took to social media to share his response to the apparent diss. The dancer shared a video of himself listening to the song with a confused look on his face and then took the opportunity to point out to West that his wife, Kim Kardashian West, and her brother have both competed on the show.
“Yo kanye keep talking that smack about dancing with the stars,” he said at the end of the photo, seemingly indicating that he might have to respond with a song of his own. “You gonna catch this diss track. With some rhinestones on.”
The dancer playfully captioned the video, “That new Ye album got me in my feelings,” adding the hashtags #shotsfired and #beefstronganoff.
Back in 2008, Kim Kardashian competed on season seven of the show with pro Mark Ballas where the pair were only the third couple to be eliminated. Meanwhile in 2011, Rob Kardashian also competed on the show and with his partner Cheryl Burke he landed in second place.
