Ray J is set to release new single taking a jab at fellow singer Kanye West , who now dates his ex, Kim Kardashian . The R&B singer who infamously filmed a sex tape in 2007 with the now reality superstar Kardashian, announced Friday he is dropping a new track April 9 entitled “I Hit It First.” Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at the Givenchy Fall/Winter show in Paris on Wednesday. Ray J tweeted the new cover art to fans Friday first pointed out by Global Grind to be a blurred out bikini pic of Kardashian from 2008 and also possibly mimicking Kanye West’s blurred artwork on “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.” “Check out my new single cover “I Hit It first” available on ITUNES on 4/9 “I Put her On” #KOmusic,” he wrote.

West.Hes infuriated that Ray J would trudge up his and Kims sex tape from 2007 just to get a little attention. However, the source assures us, Kanye sees the song for what it truly is a publicity stunt.Kanye dont condone broke ass, jealous [guys] who be trying to biteoff he and Kims fame just to stay, wait, just to become relevant. On top of their possible run-in at the BET Awards,Ray J is also scheduled to speak with some of the nominees during The Chosen. Things can certainly get awkward, very quickly. The BET Awards: When & Where To Watch The Show The BET Awards air on June 30 at 8 p.m. and will be hosted by Chris Tucker at the Nokia Theatre in LA. What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers?
‘Its really light.’ When Clarice continued to push, Ray J countered with an even more confusing response. ‘Everybodys going this way with it,’ the record producer tried to explain, gesturing one way, while then saying ‘Im going this way with it,’ and gesturing the other way. Holding on: The rapper lays claim to a former love in the song, stating, ‘she belongs in my bed’ The 32-year-old rapper released a video on Monday for his crude single I Hit It First that prominently features a Kim lookalike amid provocative scenarios. Ray J and Kim gained notoriety in 2007 when a sex tape they filmed in 2003 became public. In his video, Ray J made mention of the sex tape, as well as Kim’s fiance Kanye West and her ex-husband Kris Humphries and former boyfriend Reggie Bush. ‘She might move on to rappers and ballplayers, but we all know I hit it first,’ Ray J crooned.
“Time does not heal all wounds. Thats a complete myth. When people say it, it makes the top of my head blow off. If [it did], there wouldnt be people who are still bitter about their divorce twenty years ago, or people who cant talk about somebody who died ten years ago. They didnt do their grief workyou obviously can see that.” Clearly, Ray J’s got some issues to work out. But, we asked Elliott, do these issues merit some kind of psychological diagnosis?
If it wasn’t for Ray J Kim would not be in the position she is today and at this moment Ray J is trying to become relevant again and put out more music. So it just makes sense!!!!!!!! Some will say its distasteful because she is pregnant with Kanye’s baby. Well allegedly she married Kris Humphries for publicity so all is fair in the entertainment industry. This song leaves a question to be answered. Will Kanye West respond to Ray J?
Yes, the song may be catchy and sonically perfect for the upcoming summer season, but when it all goes down in the record books, “I Hit It First” will be remembered for its sheer gall, in song and video (which premiered on TMZ ). Here are a few of the key moments from the brave new video. The Kim K. Look-A-Like There are a number of model types that Ray J could have chosen for this video, but he was clearly going for a certain effect. The “One Wish” singer told New York’s Hot 97 that folks were “going way too deep” into the meaning of the song, but the fact that he chose a curvy, olive-toned, dark-haired model with the patented Kim K ponytail says otherwise. There are a number of women who pattern their look after the most-famous Kardashian, but the sexless sex-tape scenes, the basketball-dunking Kris Humphries twin and an “F Network” reality show are just too hard to ignore.
Getty The reprehensible Richie wasted no time in his attempt to get the dirt from Ray J, bringing up the sex tape within minutes of the interview startinggoading the 32-year-old into talking about the subject. Richie, who is not usually known for his strong sense of injustice, went in for the kill, telling Ray J it seems unfair Kardashian made five million dollars out the gate from the sex tape and you made nothing.and, to me that seems wrong. Brandon Davis Pulled A Ray J On Kim Kardashian Year Before Her Sex Tape Seems wrong because youre doing all the hard work Ray, Richie says. Man, I dont even discuss that cos theres so much happening with that and were so far past that where were both doing really well, were eating well, were living good and for me.. Ray J says, before Richie cuts in, You hit it first. Getty You know, we make money, we spend money, but to me its all about family, man, and I love my family, Ray J replies, diplomatically. I love my mom, my pops and my sisters, they all understand me and what I go through, so as long as you got that backbone and youre healthy and you got people around you to just keep you going, thats more important than anything in life.
Mz Berry, while sitting on stage where to watch Kim Kardashian sex tape alone, admitted she hasn’t seen Ray for five months. Hmm. Eyebrows raised. But then came the good part. The host brought out Cocktail (as in the season one winner who supposedly broke up with Ray before season two began). Cocktail warns Mz Berry that Ray J is a liar, and he has seen her and several other eliminated girls from season two since the show ended.
