Lyrical Genius (Vol. 7)

I haven’t done one of these in a long time mostly because I’ve been listening to HOT 97 for so long now that nothing really offends me anymore. But there’s been one line that’s been sticking out to me lately and it belongs to lyrical genius, Kanye West. In my book, Kanye’s words are the only words to live by.

“Sunglasses and Advil. Last night was mad real.”

Um, I know. Totes.

- Last night was maaaad real -

- Sunglasses and Dunk's"

So let’s explore some other hidden gems in the song “No Church in the Wild” by Kanye West feat. Jay-Z and Frank Ocean.

“Cocaine seats
All white like I got the whole thing bleached
Drug dealer chic”

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Jay-Z is a classy guy, especially now that he knocked up Beyonce and started the next royal family. He’s also been around for a while so he knows what’s up, and “drug dealer chic” – that’s what it’s all about isn’t it? Becoming a famous rapper, I mean. It’s the skill of maintaining street-cred while having a carpeted bathroom with a golden tub. Diamond encrusted grills, tinted windows, pin-striped suits, Rocawear: sooo drug dealer chic.

“Coke on her black skin made a stripe like a zebra
I call that jungle fever
You will not control the threesome
Just roll the weed up until I get me some
We formed a new religion
No sins as long as there’s permission’
And deception is the only felony
So never f-ck nobody wit’out tellin’ me
Sunglasses and Advil
Last night was mad real
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
Sounds like last night was definitely mad real. I was hungover from a couple glasses of pinot the other day, so props to Kanye for popping an Advil and getting on with his morning after that party. Question: is he talking to a girl of his when he says “never f-ck nobody wit’out tellin’ me”? Or is that a general statement to the public? One of the 10 commandments of Kanye, maybe – right after “Thou shalt not date women with hair” and “Taylor Swift sucks.”
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

- "Thou shall upstage models by looking better in women's clothing" -

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
“Sun comin’ up, 5 a.m.
I wonder if they got cabs still
Thinkin’ ’bout the girl in all-leopard
Who was rubbin’ the wood like Kiki Shepard
Two tattooes, one read ‘No Apologies’
The other said ‘Love is cursed by monogamy’
That’s somethin’ that the pastor don’t preach”
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

- Kiki Shepard -

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
What kind of lame city doesn’t have cabs at 5 a.m.? Or is that more of an existential question, like he did so much coke off that girl that he doesn’t know how much time has passed? Do cabs still exist, is this real life?
.
I don’t know who Kiki Shepard is.
.
No, the pastor does not preach “Love is cursed by monogamy,” he actually preaches “Thou shalt not commit adultery.” And we’re back to the 10 commandments of Kanye, which you can find in their entirety tattooed onto Kiki Shepard’s body.
