Fuck you and your Hampton house
I'll fuck your Hampton spouse
Came on her Hampton blouse
And in her Hampton mouth
The Hamptons—known for its density of wealth, seersucker suits, and douchebags—annoys Kanye. He will fuck yo bitch.
Kanye has gotten a lot of flack for these lines — his critics argue that he’s countering racial injustice with misogyny. But it is of course unlikely that Kanye is actually going to fuck the new slavemaster’s spouse.
In fact, this is more likely a reference to the Black Brute stereotype, which has a long legacy of spreading fear among white society of black men having sex with white women. This led to severely racist anti-miscegenation laws in the United States, which were only ruled unconstitutional in 1967. Kanye is likely playing into this stereotype just to demonstrate through the backlash against him that this fear and the stereotype is alive and well. This fear of the ‘Black Brute’ and fear of miscegenation is well documented, and more information can be found here.
