Since the beginning of his career, Kanye West has never been one to bite his tongue about his personal life. And that includes everything from his personal trials and tribulations to, well, meeting the former head of the CIA.

The latter boast was spit on Cruel Summer banger “Clique,” which features Yeezy trading verses with Big Sean and Jay-Z.

The line in particular is below.

“Yeah, I’m talking business, we talking CIA/I’m talking George Tenet, I seen him the other day/He asked me about my Maybach, think he had the same/Except mine tinted and his might have been rented.”

To find out whether this rhyme was true or not, the folks at Wired’s Danger Room spoke with Tenet spokesman Bill Harlow.

He revealed that Yeezy and the ex-CIA director did in fact run into each other a “few months ago” in New York City. Harlow then said that Tenet and Kanye didn’t actually talk about Maybachs, but hey, it made for a good rhyme.

Everything You Know Is Wrong: This Is, Hands Down, The Best Way To Peel An Orange

If you’ve ever peeled an orange in your entire life, know that you’re doing it wrong. It’s disheartening to realize that you’ve been lied to for your whole existence — normally, one peels an orange by stabbing a finger into the skin and randomly stripping it away, hoping to not dramatically bruise the prize inside […]
