He also detailed how the duo became friends, crediting fellow comedians Dave Chappelle and John Mulaney with the introduction.

West uploaded a music video earlier this month for his new song “Eazy,” which depicts the rapper burying a Davidson-like character alive. The video sparked backlash for West, with many calling it “disturbing” and “terrifying” and saying it’s “not art” and “not right”.
