Kanye West has shared the music video for ‘Eazy’, his recent collaboration with The Game – you can see it below.

The rapper shared the clip on his Instagram page last night (March 2). The claymation video follows a similar theme to much of his recent social media output, in that it takes aim at his soon-to-be-ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s new boyfriend, comedian Pete Davidson.

An animated West is seen carrying a severed head in the video, with flashbacks then recounting how he came to be in possession of it. He and two henchmen are seen to kidnap a figure who bears a strong resemblance to Davidson, before burying him alive and sprinkling seeds around him.

After a rose bush grows around Davidson, West returns to trim it with a pair of gardening shears, with a close-up showing the ‘Saturday Night Live’ funnyman’s eyes turning white. A series of inter-titles at the video’s close then inform the viewer that “everyone lived happily ever after, except Skete you know who – JK he’s fine,” referencing West’s derogatory nickname for Davidson.

The timing of the video’s posting, just hours after a Los Angeles court declared Kardashian legally single, would appear to indicate that there has been no thawing of hostilities between the two men. In recent weeks, West has repeatedly taken pot-shots at Davidson on social media, to the point that, in a complaint to the Los Angeles Superior Court asking for her divorce proceedings from West to be accelerated, Kardashian referred to the posts having caused her “emotional distress”.

After weeks of high-profile attempts to win back Kardashian – including sending a truck full of roses to her house on Valentine’s Day – West appeared to have had a change of heart yesterday, telling Hollywood Unlocked in a statement that he was acquiescing to Kardashian’s demands to push through their divorce for the sake of their children. “I’ve asked my team to expedite the dissolution of my marriage to Kim so I can put my entire attention into our beautiful children,” he said. The pair share North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and two-year-old Psalm.

However, the subsequent release of the provocative ‘Eazy’ video suggests we have not heard the last of the saga. The song does not appear on ‘Donda 2’, which was released last week and is exclusively available on his Stem Player streaming device.
