Gave her a handshake only for my man’s sake

from Kanye West (Ft. Charlie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield, Jay Z, Kid Cudi & Pete Rock) – The Joy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Despite the relative hotness of this girl, Kanye isn’t really interested in her; he’s just taking one for the team

A contrasting interpretation reads as though Kanye is interested in this girl, but she’s with his friend, so he can’t touch her

This also calls back RZA’s line on one of Kanye’s favorite albums

Stomach flat as a pancake for her man’s sake
