Uh, I know you need that reptile
Kanye is likening his sexual organ to a reptile, and so describing its ferocious, animal nature, whilst also perhaps suggesting that it has a mind of its own.
Also some snakes can grow up to 30ft long so he’s extraordinarily (divinely?) blessed in this department, something which he has mentioned before.
Could Kanye also be describing cunnilingus? Snakes, for instance, can flick their tongues at rapid speeds. This could be referring to Kanye’s head game.
This plays off the very next line were he mentions “she cut from a different textile.” Kanye is a fashion designer so he is saying “I know you need that reptile” as if he is saying she needs that snake skin boot/pant/purse etc. and is pushing his swagger and use of his personal income to sound boss to the ladies. Also, if she wants a new python bag, she’s gonna have to use her mouth!
From a religious perspective, this could also be referring to the story of Adam and Eve in the garden. Kanye is suggesting the woman is just as vulnerable to ALL forms of temptations, similar to Eve and the snake. This also insinuates that Kanye, too, is vulnerable, as both Adam and Even bit ate the forbidden fruit.
The reptilian part of the human brain is the smallest and oldest part. Since it is before consciousness, it’s only instincts would be minimal: eat, water, attack, defend, fuck. Kanye doesn’t neglect this part of our makeup.
