[Interlude]
“I don't even know what that means
(No one knows what it means, but it's provocative)
No it's not, it's gross (Gets the people going)”

from Kanye West (Ft. Jay Z) – Niggas in Paris Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is another sound clip from Blades of Glory. Will Ferrell’s character is trying to explain what “lady humps” are.

This interlude could be viewed as a criticism of where rap is potentially headed.

Yeezy could be using it to describe his trademark ad-lib — the lovable HAAAH — which directly precedes the sound clip.

Or maybe Kanye’s just being his usual self via Will Ferrell: “I’m so clever and deep that nobody else can even understand the intricacies of what I’m saying.”

Even a fourth way to look at this is that ‘Ye doesn’t even need to make sense for people to dig his beats.

We at RG hardly know what the line before this means, either…

In an interesting article in Slate, Jonah Weiner wonders if this is just Kanye’s way of explaining “the most popular piece of Western culture to ever feature the word ‘nigga’ so prominently.”
