Ray J is proud of Kanye sex tape reference

Ray J is proud Kanye West referenced his sex tape with Kim Kardashian on his song ‘Clique’, but insists his own new track ‘I Hit It First’ isn’t about his reality TV star ex-girlfriend.

The RnB star – who appeared in the raunchy film with the 32-year-old reality TV star in 2007, which kick-started her rise to fame – was happy when he learned Kanye referred to the intimate home movie in his song ‘Clique’ because it reflects ”real life”.

In the track, Kanye – who is expecting his first child with Kim – raps: ”My girl a superstar all from a home movie.” Ray J said: ”A few people called me and I was like, ‘That’s what music is about, talking about real life.’ ” Although his own latest single, ‘I Hit It First’, refers to a girl who ”might move on to rappers and ballplayers,” who ”chose to go west” and with whom he wants to make ”another movie,” Ray J is adamant it isn’t about Kim, despite the apparent references.

He told Yahoo! Music: ”When people first heard the lyrics or read the lyrics online they kinda took the song somewhere it wasn’t supposed to go. ”It’s life put into a music form from my perspective.” However, he is rumoured to have cast a Kim lookalike for the accompanying music video, which he says ”pokes fun” at his life.

She rocks outfits with every colour in the rainbow, so if you’re not a fan of the “colour blocking” trend. you have been warned, LOL! TRACE URBAN plays only the best videos and this wouldn’t be on our play list if it wasn’t good. Check it out!
