I slapped my girl, she called the feds

from Kanye West (Ft. Alicia Keys, Alvin Fields, Charlie Wilson, Drake, Elly Jackson, Elton John, Fergie, John Legend, Ken Lewis, Kid Cudi, Rihanna, Ryan Leslie, The-Dream & The World Famous Tony Williams) – All of the Lights Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Here Kanye begins the “story” that carries through the rest of verse. It begins with a man hitting his girlfriend and being arrested

This becomes more interesting by the fact that Rihanna was beaten up by boyfriend Chris Brown not long before this song was made. Considering the themes of the song, perhaps Kanye is suggesting that it was partially the effects of fame that caused the incident, and that we don’t know the full story. Ri-Ri certainly doesn’t shy away from songs that relate to the subject.
