Nonetheless, as a huge fan of rap, one can only imagine Phelps is thrilled. Strangely enough though, he has yet to mention it on Twitter -- but plenty of his fans have.
"Michael Phelps name dropped in a new Kanye verse," wrote Sheilawesome. "The Olympian has finally won everything. #betterthangoldmedals."
Another named DJ Tweeted: "Phelps made it in to a Kanye song, but Lochte didn't. Time to shine them grillz, son."
