Uh, pop a wheelie on the Zeitgeist
zeit·geist /ˈtsītˌgīst/ (n) the general intellectual, moral, and cultural climate of an era.
This is Kanye’s ultimate goal and achievement, to define the zeitgeist of his time. Not only does he reference the much sought-after zeitgeist, he does in the interestingly casual context of “pop a wheelie,” expressing that he has the keys to the zeitgeist and he is carelessly flaunting it. It takes no effort to be what he has become: “I understand culture. I am the nucleus”
Similarly to how the Tron bike is way more advanced than anything of our time, Kanye suggests that his music is more advanced than any other of our time. He’s going to rise above our cultural limitations and revolutionize the bar for good rap music.
