Kanye West broke down in tears on stage at his new album launch yesterday, MTO News has learned, after playing a song about his divorce from Kim Kardashian.
In his new track, Welcome To My Life, Yeezy rapped about his tough last two years, which included his split from the reality star, his meltdown on Twitter and his failed bid to become US President.
In the song, Kanye, 44, rapped: “Tell the assassins I escaped from Calabasas.” In that bar, Kanye seems to liken his and Kim’s marital home in Calabasas, LA, to a prison, which he “escaped.”
But there’s more. MTO News learned that a source at the listening party in Las Vegas told the UK’s Sun, “It’s a very deep, sad song about Kanye, with him reflecting on his marriage with Kim.

“He talks about the kids and mentions her taking everything. After he played this song he paused for like, two minutes, and cried. It was really sombre.”
Kanye’s 10th album was launched in a very unorthodox way. MTO News learned that the new album, Donda — named after his late mother — was heard first at a public listening party at Las Vegas’ ChurchLV. The album is expected to be released on Friday.
