Ty Dolla $ign's new single Ego Death sees him linking up with Skrillex, FKA Twigs, Kanye West and Serpentwithfeet to pack a lot of superstars into just four minutes.
One of the song's most memorable moments comes courtesy of Kanye, with an infamous phrase kicking off his verse. It's no surprise Ty and Kanye have collaborated on Ego Death, given they've worked together in the past, but we're tipping this is the first time someone's sampled one of Kanye's social media outbursts.
The sample comes from one of Kanye's 2018 Instagram videos, where he calls out Drake, and goes on a rant (as he tends to do). However, at some point in the video, which sees Kanye walking through Chicago, he says “Hold on, this train going by." A train doesn't stop for anyone, not even Kanye.

Speaking about the sample, Ty told Beats 1 Radio he thought it was "so hard", saying, "I was watching Instagram, and there was some video of 'Ye walking through Chicago. Then he was like, 'Hold up. There's a train going by.' I thought that was so hard, just seeing him just walking through Chicago by himself.
"So I sampled that part, and then I went out to Chicago to work on Yandhi with him. Then I played him the record, and he went crazy. Everybody in the room ran out, like, 'Oh, shit.' So he came back. He grabbed the little performance mic, and he started beatboxing and just freestyling and shit." Clearly, Kanye was feeling the sample.
