New crib, watch a movie cause ain’t nothin on the news but the blues
Yeezy likely gets the blues because of widespread media bias that almost always portrays black folks (particularly young ones) as perpetrators or victims of crime.
Blues could also refer to the Crips in Chi-town. It’s depressing for Kanye to see all the gang warfare occurring in his hometown, therefore, “the blues.” Double entendre.
