The rappers publicly feuded in 2013.

Ray J is upset about his appearance in Kanye West's new video, insisting it is causing issues between himself and his fiancee.

The Stronger rapper shocked viewers when his Famous "visual event" premiered on Friday night (24Jun16) and featured celebrities, or their lookalikes, naked in a bed alongside Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian.

The stars included Taylor Swift, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Donald Trump, Caitlyn Jenner, and Kim's ex Ray J, who famously co-starred in a sex tape with the reality TV star.

Brown has commented on his appearance in the video and now Ray J, who is engaged to Princess Love, has spoken out about the promo, insisting he is trying move past all the drama between himself, Kanye and Kim.

"Man, I'm just trying to stay positive," Ray J told Entertainment Tonight's Kevin Frazier backstage at the 2016 BET Awards on Sunday night (26Jun16). "I'm engaged. My marriage is all messed up 'cause of craziness. I'm not part of nothing crazy (sic)."

"I walk down a good path," he continued. "My fiancee tripping. It's all bad in my world, and that ain't cool. Don't put me part of nothing that's weird, that don't make no sense (sic)."

The Sexy Can I singer and Kanye previously clashed in 2013, when Ray J released his controversial track I Hit It First, a song which referenced the 35-year-old's relationship with Kim.

West fired back later that year during an appearance on U.S. late night host Jimmy Fallon's show, where he played his single Bound 2 with music veteran Charlie Wilson, and used his stage time to take a subtle jab at Ray J at the top of the song.

Kanye also mentions Ray J in his new The Life of Pablo track, Highlights, in which he raps, "I bet me and Ray J would be friends if we ain't love the same b**ch/Yeah, he might have hit it first/Only problem is I'm rich."
