Now she heading to Rome, Rome is the home
Rome is where she act like she ain't got no fucking phone

from Kanye West – White Dress Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Interestingly enough, Kanye did something similar. On one of Kanye’s famous Twitter rants, he let loose a bit of info on his whereabouts and going-ons in the past few years, one being that he flew to Rome to work on fashion undercover (i.e. no communication).

I moved to Rome after I left Japan and worked at Fendi for 4 months under cover … I was there to give ideas for the men’s collection

This is also a play on the words: “Rome” the ancient European city and “roam” as in when you’re outside of your cell phone service provider’s network and your phone connects to another one.

Typically when your phone is roaming, your service is shitty. So basically, Kanye is saying she acts like she’s in Rome/roam, i.e., like she doesn’t know he’s calling.

Kanye is also making a point about how his girl is acting in Rome. She doesn’t care about ‘real life’, she ignores calls etc. This is out of character for her so Rome must be a special place.
