Jimmy Kimmel attends the "Once Upon A Time In Queens" Los Angeles Premiere at NeueHouse Los Angeles on September 10, 2021 in Hollywood, California. Kanye West attends the Fast Company Innovation Festival - Day 3 Arrivals on November 07, 2019 in New York City. Pete Davidson attends the 44th Kennedy Center Honors at The Kennedy Center on December 05, 2021 in Washington, DC.

On last night’s (January 17) episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the host discusses the snippet of Kanye West’s new song that takes a dig at his estranged wife’s boyfriend, Pete Davidson.

Speaking of Kanye’s new name, Ye, Kimmel said during his opening monologue, “The artist formerly known as Kanye has a new song. Ye, which is what he goes by now — it’s his name now. Ye, which is a cheer, not a name.” Kimmel made it known that he thinks the name change sounds more like something a cheerleader would scream during practice.

Kanye’s song, “Eazy,” appears to make a threat towards the Saturday Night Live star when he said: “God saved me from that crash, just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s a–.” Kimmel is definitely in on the joke as he comments just how random this whole one-sided beef is, “You know this reminds me of when Tupac wrote a diss track about Andy Samberg? Do you remember that?! Can you imagine, you’re minding your own business, you’re at home. Suddenly, Kanye attacks you? I mean, he has done that to me,” the host joked. “But can you imagine?”

Kimmel wasn’t done there; he went after Pete saying, “Ariana Grande wrote a song about him, now Kanye’s got a song. Pete is one Taylor Swift away from the heartbreak trifecta right now.”
