Kanye West dismissed claims he bashed Taylor Swift in his new song "Famous." The rapper released the track, from his album “The Life of Pablo,” Thursday night during his Yeezy Season 3 New York Fashion Week show.

In the song West rapped that he and the "Blank Space" singer "might still have sex ... I made that b---- famous." Kim Kardashian West's husband was immediately criticized for the lyric, and on Friday he ranted on Twitter that it was a joke and Swift supposedly gave her stamp of approval before he released it.

"I did not diss Taylor Swift and I've never dissed her," West began. "First thing is I'm an artist and as an artist I will express how I feel with no censorship."

According to the 38-year-old father of two, he and Swift had an hourlong conversation about the lyric.

"She thought it was funny and gave her blessings," West wrote. He continued:

The "Bound 2" rapper finished his lengthy rant by telling people to "stop trying to demonize real artist[s]. Stop trying to compromise art."

Swift has yet to respond to West's song but TMZ reported that sources close to her confirmed that West did call last month about the lyric to get her approval. The outlet wrote that Swift and West have been friendly and occasionally talk on the phone after moving past the infamous incident when the rapper interrupted her during an acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

Even though West tweeted that Swift is cool with the controversial lyric, her brother Austin Swift didn't find it funny and posted a video of him tossing his Yeezy sneakers in the trash. “Getting a head start on some spring cleaning,” he wrote. “Here we go again.”
