Rilkes

from Kanye West (Ft. Flux Pavilion & Jay Z) – Who Gon Stop Me Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is probably the most inaccessible reference of the three. Rainer Maria Rilke, a Bohemian poet and writer who rolled with Rodin and Cézanne.

It also makes the least sense of the three since it’s hard to believe Hov actually collects Rilke (actually pronounced Ril-kuh) manuscripts, which were largely written in German.

Paula Modersohn-Becker’s portrait of Rainer Maria Rilke (who did not paint), 1906
