I'mma need a day off, I think I'll call Ferris up
Reference to the film Feris Bueller’s Day Off, which follows a high school student who ditches school for a day. This is also a play on words to give a shoutout to DJ Pharris, Kanye’s long-time friend and Chicago native.
Yeezy’s choice of film is a shout-out to his hometown. The movie largely takes place in downtown Chicago, and director John Hughes said, “I really wanted to capture as much of Chicago as I could. Not just in the architecture and landscape, but the spirit.”
