Trying to end 2015 with a bang, Kanye West dropped a new track on New Year's Eve that went in on Nike.

West, the owner of the popular Yeezy line, is Team Adidas. Not only does the rapper take shots at the rival company, but he also brings Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James and New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. into the diss track—as well as giving Houston Rockets star James Harden and Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick "Swaggy P" Young shoutouts.

Ladies and gentlemen, "Facts (Explicit)." Warning: Audio contains NSFW language. 

Here are a few lines from the track:

I was out here spazzin', all y'all get the message?

On the field I'm over reckless, on my Odell Beckham

[...]

Nike Nike treat employees just like slaves

Gave LeBron a billi' not to run away

Swaggy P, your thoughts?

Of course, Kim Kardashian West supported her husband:
