Kanye West rapper survives random shooting & forced to make changes to “Ye”

Kanye West has already made changes to ‘Ye’ because he hadn’t cleared a sample on one of the songs.

Kanye West nearly lost his life this weekend as gunmen fired shots at his video shoot with Tekashi69. According to TMZ, “You see 2 cars pull up to the Beverly Hills home Thursday night at around 10:30 PM. Two men get out — it appears one from each car — and both are wearing hoodies.

They look for a few seconds for their target and then fire a barrage of shots over the wall. Both appear to be men … you hear male voices. One appears to say “We got 30 seconds,” and the other responds “Ok,” just before they begin firing. ”

The 41-year-old rapper’s latest album was only released five months ago, but it appears he has had to alter his song ‘I Thought About Killing You’ because he didn’t have permission to use the beat featured on the tune.

When this was mentioned to two fansites on social media, Kanye’s engineer Adam Wolpert took to Twitter to confirm that the backing track has quietly been altered because it hadn’t been cleared for use.

It isn’t the first time Kanye has gone back to change his work after it’s been released, as he made huge changes to ‘The Life of Pablo’ following its initial drop in 2016.

Speaking at the time – which saw a lot of tracks altered in a big way after it had come out on streaming sites – the star described the project as a “living, breathing, changing creative expression”. It’s unclear if Kanye is looking to do the same with ‘Ye’, or if it will just be one change out of necessity.

Meanwhile, fans of the rapper will have brand new material to enjoy as well as reworked tracks as he’s set to release his new album ‘Yandhi’ this month.

Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian West recently confirmed the record – which was originally set to be released on September 29 to tie in with his appearance on ‘Saturday Night Live’ but has since been delayed – is dropping on lack Friday (23.11.18).

She tweeted last month “Nov 23 Black Friday YANDHI… TRUST ME it is worth the wait ”
