I’m headin’ west like I’m fuckin’ blowin’ Kanye

from Childish Gambino – Break (All of the Lights) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Gambino lives in Los Angeles — “heading West” plays on Kanye’s name. Also the fact at the time he was going on tour, he’s literally head in a westerly direction!

Anyone hearing the song for the first time will need a double-take when they hear this line!

This is also a not so subtle An American Tail: Fievel Goes West reference in which the main character Fievel moves west in a mass mouse emigration. We all know how much Bino loves singing “Somewhere Out There” from the movie, and his affinity for rats named Fievel should be duly noted.
