Now I'm looking at a crib right next to where TC lives
That's Tom Cruise, whatever she accuse
Kanye is upgrading his crib to where Tom Cruise lives. Cruise recently had a divorce from his wife Katie Holmes and Kanye decides to dole out a little advice to his to be next-door neighbor in his next line.
This also may be a double entendre referencing Riccardo Tisci (Tee-cee), fashion designer for Givenchy and close friend of Kanye’s who also happens to have designed the cover art for both Watch the Throne and Cruel Summer.
Maybe Kanye is just trying to say his friends are cooler than yours.
Probably unbeknownst to Kanye, this sets up a parallel to the novel American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis. The main character, Patrick Bateman, had an expensive apartment with Tom Cruise as supposedly his next-door neighbor. Bateman, like Kanye, only dresses in and uses the most fashionable, expensive clothing and accessories possible (e.g. Salvatore Ferragamo and Valentino suits, Oliver Peoples glasses and Jean Paul Gaultier, Louis Vuitton and Bottega Veneta leather goods). Both West and Bateman love dropping the proper nouns of the goods they wear.
