OVERVIEW:

Starts out with some weird electric sounds and Kanye jumps on the mic. A choir starts singing. Then the cringy electric beat starts again.

He’s a black skin head. Not literally, of course. Not as cringy.

Then he’s a God. He has money and power.

The new slave is on a mental plantation.

Hold his liquor. Went through a tramatic experience and is prospering.

Kanye’s in it.

And I’m done.

Too electric and experimental for me.

And it was kind of all over the place.

Definitely not one of Kanye’s best projects.
