On New Year's Eve, Kanye West unveiled his collaboration with Paul McCartney, "Only One." The touching song is written from the perspective of Kanye's late mother Donda, who died in 2007 from surgery complications. And while many of Yeezy's fans loved the song, there were also a lot of them who questioned who Paul McCartney is.
Kanye fans took to Twitter after the song was revealed and publicly admitted that they had no clue who the former Beatle was -- and some even went as far as to say that Kanye is going to "jump-start his career."

Well, because Sir Paul McCartney is one of the most legendary rockers who was part of the most monumental bands of all time, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and has even been knighted ... naturally Beatles fans and fans of Paul alike were not happy:
