Kris Humphries has hit back at Kanye West after reportedly signing a two-year contract with the Brooklyn Nets.

The basketball player was mentioned in a track by Kanye, who is now his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian's boyfriend.

In the song 'Way Too Cold' - originally titled 'Theraflu' - the rapper suggests he has the power to persuade his best friend Jay-Z to fire him from the Brooklyn Nets team, which he happens to own.

However Kris revealed he would be returning to the New York team this season and laughed a line from the song, directing it at Jay-Z, whose real name is Sean Carter.

He wrote on twitter: ''I'm up at Brooklyn! @S_C_ ''lucky I didn't have Jay drop me from the team'' lol!''

In the original version of the tune, the lyric reads: ''I'll admit I fell in love with Kim around the same time she had fell in love with him / Well, that's cool, baby girl, do you thing / Lucky I ain't have Jay drop him from the team.''

Kris agreed to a two-year, $24 million contract according to website ESPN.com.
