Hey, you remember where we first met?
Okay, I don't remember where we first met
But hey, admitting is the first step
And hey, you know ain't nobody perfect
West has been in a relationship with reality star Kim Kardashian since April 2012. Kanye confesses that he can’t remember where they first met eyes, although he justifies it by saying at least he admitted it. And admitting you have the problem is the first step in the twelve-step program.
And as we all know, nobody’s perfect..
Taking this idea further, Ye references Alcoholics Anonymous, which is commonly called AA, when, in 4th line here, he pronounces “And hey” as “Ay Ay.”
Since the twelve-step program is usually used with recovering alcoholics, and Kanye’s drinking problem has been mentioned earlier in the album, he’s implying that he doesn’t remember where they first met because he was shitfaced.
In the interview with Kris Jenner, Kanye said one of the first times he met Kim was in the studio with Brandy when she was Brandy’s student, though he can’t exactly remember the first ever time he met her.
“I’m trying to remember if it was her being in the studio when she was Brandy’s assistant and I think she brought us in something to drink, something you can’t drink on daytime television, or it might have been when I was doing Brandy’s video,” he told Jenner.
“I remember asking my manager like, ‘Who’s that girl right there?’ and he’s like, ‘Oh you mean, Kim?’”
