On Kanye’s The Life Of Pablo song,”Real Friends,” Kanye West rhymed that he had to pay $250,000 to his own cousin to get back a laptop that contained videos of him having sex with women. Now, via Daily Mail, another family member of Kanye named Lawrence Franklin has confirmed the rapper did indeed pay the price. Franklin gave details, saying the laptop was initially given away as a gift to a family member but was then loaned to another family member in 2012. From there, that family member decided to try and blackmail Kanye West into giving up a large amount of money. Franklin also noted that the sex tape featured West and a light skinned black woman.
