Kanye West released a surprise track yesterday titled “XTCY,” and while you’ll only need one guess to decipher which drug the rapper is referring to, you’ll need a few more guesses to understand why West discussed sexual interest in his wife Kim Kardashian-West’s sisters.

The song, which was produced by West and DJ Clark Kent, includes the distinct lines, “You got sick thoughts/I got more of ’em/You got a sister-in-law you would smash?/I got four of ’em.”

Naturally, the verse raised a few eyebrows among listeners, with many stumped at his admission. Despite West stressing that he came up with this verse (and others of a sexual nature) while high on the party drug, not everyone was convinced about its relevance.

Check out some reactions to the line and the song overall below.

Some claimed that the old ’Ye was coming back

Others noted that his creative juices were flowing

The “woopity scoop” phrase made a return

These users weren’t happy about the Kardashian-in-law reference

Think of the children …

These fans claimed that people were too sensitive

Some called it straight up trash

‘Get Out’ references also came back

Ultimately, there’s a method to his madness

Revisit the full track below.
