Number one question they're askin'
Fuck every question you askin'
Kanye sat down with the New York Times to answer questions surrounding Yeezus which is #rare since he usually doesn’t do press (hence: “fuck every question”). In the interview, he talked about working with Rick Rubin days before the album’s release to apply the finishing touches. From an interview with Rubin:
Kanye was planning to go to Milan that night. Five songs still needed vocals and two or three of them still needed lyrics. He said, “Don’t worry, I will score 40 points for you in the fourth quarter.” In the two hours before had to run out to catch the plane, he did exactly that: finished all lyrics and performed them with gusto.
Before premiering “Black Skinhead” on Saturday Night Live, Yeezy tweeted the lyrics to song with this couplet rendered as:
My homey was number one draft pick, they still burned his jersey in Akron
Which is a reference to Akron-born number one draft pick, Lebron James (post The Decision). Yeezy flubbed the lyrics in his SNL performance and likely changed them at the last minute. Though if you asked him about it, he’d just say “fuck every question you asking.”
Yeezy blocked the Lebron reference
