Kanye West jumps on the official remix of Rihanna's 'Diamonds'

Mr. West revamps Rihanna’s moody ballad with nearly two minutes of bars.

Kanye adds two verses to ‘Diamonds’, working in references to the Illuminati, the Fresh Prince, and the Louvre (a trio that only he can pull off) before closing with a nod to the Roc: “is it too much to ask you keep your diamonds up?”

It’s the second version of the song to surface today, following Zola Jesus’ cover. Previously, A$AP Rocky added a verse to Rihanna’s ‘Cockiness’, the final single off Talk That Talk. The pop star’s Unapologetic is due out next week.
