[Hook]

from Kanye West – Hell Of A Life Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The hook cops the melody from Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man.”

The sample of “Iron Man” actually holds a lot of weight in the frame of the song. “Iron Man” tells the story of a man who traveled to the future and saw a huge catastrophe. He travels back to warn everyone, but in the warp he becomes disfigured and metallic. Due to his appearance, nobody listens to his warnings and in his anger he uses his mutation to cause the catastrophe he saw in the first place.

Also, “Iron Man” was by Black Sabbath — their name was a juxtaposition between something unholy and something holy, taken from an obscure Italian horror film. In the chorus, Kanye does the same by referring to pussy and religion together in the same context.
