Earlier this month, Kanye West made yet another of his casually shocking statements via the lyrics to his song "XTCY," leaked early—with West's permission—by record producer DJ Clark Kent. West opens the track by rapping, "You got sick thoughts? I got more of 'em/ You got a sister-in-law you would smash? I got four of 'em/ Damn, those is your sisters/ You did somethin' unholy to them pictures/ Damn, you need to be locked up/ Nah, we need a bigger hot tub." Listeners, understandably, took Ye's words to mean that he'd happily "smash" any of wife Kim Kardashian West's famous sisters, and now, he appears to have all but confirmed the speculation.

On Wednesday evening, "XTCY" was officially released to be purchased and streamed beyond Kent's semi-shady WeTransfer link. The accompanying cover art seems to double down on the song's opening premise of "smashing" his sisters-in-law: It's a painted version of an Instagram photo from Kylie Jenner's 21st birthday party earlier this month, depicting Khloé, Kim, Kylie, Kendall, and Kourtney all sitting on a couch and flipping off the camera. Though momager Kris Jenner actually sits to Kourtney's left in the original image, she was excluded from the painting. Mothers-in-law, it seems, are not to be smashed.

It's unclear who, exactly, is the artist behind the painting. The artwork is a pretty faithful adaptation of the inspiring photograph, with extra emphasis placed on capturing the Kardashian-Jenner sisters' shared love of highlighting and contouring every angle of their bodies.

Though none of the sisters have reacted publicly to West's wish to "smash" them, Kris Jenner was tracked down by TMZ shortly after the song's initial leak and asked how she felt about his words. "I love Kanye!" she said. So that's that.
