She say I care more about them basquions
Basquiats, she learning a new word, it's yacht

from Kanye West (Ft. Elly Jackson, Jay Z & Justin Vernon) – That's My Bitch Lyrics on Rap Genius


Kanye’s paramour is giving him a hard time because he cares more about expensive art than he cares for her. She doesn’t live the rich life and therefore doesn’t know about Jean-Michel Basquiat (the famous black neo-expressionist artist) and mispronounces his name. He corrects her, and then encapsulates both premises into the next line: He’s going to teach her a new word, “yacht,” not because she doesn’t know what a yacht is, but because she doesn’t live that lifestyle and so he’s going to introduce it to her…which in turn, should show her that he does care for her and not only expensive art

This is not the only time Basquiat’s influence is felt on Watch the Throne
