Is hip-hop just a euphemism for a new religion?
The soul music of the slaves that the youth is missing
My friend showed me pictures of his kids
And all I could show him was pictures of my cribs
He said his daughter got a brand new report card
And all I got was a brand new sports car
See, I just want him to have an easy life, not like Yeezy life
Just want him to be someone people like
Don’t want him to be hated all the time, judged
Don’t be like your daddy that'd never budge
And I’ll never let him ever hit a strip club
I learned the hard way, that ain’t the place to get love
Up from the ashes into the sky
Found a redeemer, how I survive
Voice of their mothers, Mary and Christ
Your light has healed me, blessed with new life
So much hate at the top, it's a lonely place
When you find out the opps ain't the only snakes
And your spouse only know what you don't erase
The world only know you by your worst mistakes
I'm a sick fuck, I like a quick fuck
I like my dick sucked, I'll buy you a sick truck
I'll buy you some new tits, I'll get you that nip-tuck
How you start a family? The condom slipped up
You got sick thoughts? I got more of 'em
You remember bad bitches that you smashed? I recorded 'em
She said 'fuck weed' 'cause she love X
If she suck seed, that's a success
If a girl cum, that's a fuck fest
And we gon' score 100 on this drug test
They say good things come to those who wait
So I’mma be at least about a hour late
All these walls that keep us from loving each other as one family or one race - racism, religion, where we grew up, whatever, class, socioeconomic - what makes us be so selfish and prideful, what keeps us from wanting to help the next man, what makes us be so focused on a personal legacy as opposed to the entire legacy of a race.Kanye West
Würdest du glauben woran du glaubst, wenn du der einzige wärst, der es glaubt?

Für mich ist Geld nicht die Definition von Erfolg. Erfolg ist Menschen zu inspirieren.
For me, money is not my definition of success. Inspiring people is a definition of success.Erfolg, InspirationKanye West
We hit the spot to chill with the Fuji Grill
She ordered the Kobe beef, like Shaquille O'Neal
Wenn du die Möglichkeit hast, das Spiel des Lebens zu spielen, dann musst du jeden Moment schätzen. Viele Menschen schätzen einen Moment nicht bis er vergangen ist.
If you have the opportunity to play this game of life you need to appreciate every moment. A lot of people don't appreciate the moment until it's passed.Augenblick & GegenwartKanye West
Kenne deinen Wert! Menschen tun immer so, als würden sie mehr für dich tun, als du für sie.
Know your worth! People always act like they're doing more for you than you're doing for them.SelbstlosigkeitKanye West
Ich lehne es ab die Vorstellung anderer Menschen über mein Glück zu akzeptieren. Es gibt keine Standardgröße für Glück, die jedem passt.
I refuse to accept other people's ideas of happiness for me. As if there's a 'one size fits all' standard for happiness.Glück, CharakterKanye West
