Kanye West certainly loves to namedrop in his music.
In fact, the outspoken rapper recently made headlines for waxing lyrical about his feelings for current squeeze Kim Kardashian. And celebrity references in his tracks have ranged from the incendiary (dissing Kardashian's ex) to the benign (creating wordplay with the names of sitcom actors).
