During Instagram live on Saturday, the New York rapper reveals he helped inspire Kanye West’s “Real Friends.” The “wavy” session beings with Joey recounting the time he met Ye for the very first time. Shortly after, Joey reveals he actually inspired Kanye for the hit record:

“I’ll tell y’all something very real about Kanye. I met Kanye for the first time, Coachella 2016. He was like, ‘You heard ‘Real Friends?’ I’m looking at this nigga like, ‘Yeah, I heard ‘Real Friends.’ Who the fuck ain’t heard ‘Real Friends?’ He was like, ‘You inspired me to make that song, B.’ I honestly couldn’t even believe he was saying that shit. I couldn’t believe it. The only thing I was thinking in my head was, ‘Nigga, why the fuck you ain’t put me on that shit? I could use the clout.’ Shoutout to Kanye though. Real nigga. I still don’t believe it to this day.”
