Ray J, the for­mer singer and Kim Kar­dashi­an’s ex-part­ner, has spo­ken out about the pro­found impact their 2003 sex tape had on pop­u­lar cul­ture and the tra­jec­to­ry of the Kar­dashi­an-Jen­ner fam­i­ly’s rise to fame.

In a recent inter­view on Shan­non Sharpe’s pod­cast “Club Shay Shay,” Ray J made some bold claims about the cul­tur­al shift trig­gered by the release of the tape.

He sug­gest­ed that if the tape had nev­er sur­faced, the world would be a fun­da­men­tal­ly dif­fer­ent place, with few­er oppor­tu­ni­ties like Only­Fans and poten­tial­ly more peo­ple pur­su­ing high­er education.

“How dif­fer­ent would we all be? How dif­fer­ent would this whole f*cking thing be? How dif­fer­ent would this indus­try be?” Ray J mused, pon­der­ing the far-reach­ing con­se­quences of the infa­mous sex tape.

The 43-year-old singer, who is cur­rent­ly pro­mot­ing his new sin­gle “Throw­ing Stacks,” believes the tape was a cat­a­lyst that reset cul­ture as we know it. He explained that the tape’s impact was so sig­nif­i­cant that it might have altered the way peo­ple dress and the very nature of the enter­tain­ment industry.

“Every­thing would be dif­fer­ent. There might not be any Only­Fans and all the things like that. All the oppor­tu­ni­ties like that. Prob­a­bly more peo­ple would be going to col­lege,” Ray J speculated.

While the sex tape pro­pelled Kim Kar­dashi­an’s rise to glob­al fame and the explo­sive suc­cess of the Kar­dashi­an-Jen­ner brand, Ray J now express­es mixed feel­ings about his involve­ment. He admit­ted to being embar­rassed by the tape, espe­cial­ly now that he has children.

“I have kids now. Every­thing I did now when we have kids is just total­ly dif­fer­ent. The whole thing is wacky. With my kids it’s not OK,” he said.

Despite the tape’s last­ing impact, Ray J is deter­mined to “make it right” and shift the nar­ra­tive sur­round­ing the noto­ri­ous video. He ques­tions whether he and the tape are “a part of the cure or [are] we a part of the dis­ease,” sug­gest­ing a desire to reframe the cul­tur­al lega­cy of the sex tape.
