Since the tight jeans they never liked you
Over the years, Ye has definitely had his share of problems with the media and critics. Ye believes that the reason why he gets slammed by the media is because they don’t like innovative Ye, they want him to go back to his old style. Here, he’s implying that they didn’t even like him in his old clothes (he had the tight jeans back then and in the next line he mentions his signature pink polo).
In a recent interview, when asked about his thoughts on coming in at #7 on the MTV’s hottest MC list, Ye was quoted saying:
They don’t like Givenchy Kanye
They don’t like Kanye in a Kilt
They don’t like Kanye in a relationship

This could very well be a direct slam of Hedi Slimane whom Kanye met with in Paris days before writing this song. Kanye was trying to pitch some fashion ideas to him and got shot down repeatedly. Slimane credits himself for starting the skinny jeans trend in 2006.
