God calling from the hotlines
Why he keep giving me hot lines?

from Kanye West – I Wonder Lyrics on Rap Genius


Kanye uses the homophone hotlines here, as in God is giving him hotlines, as in telephone communication, but he’s also giving him hot lines, as in good punchlines in his rapping. Kanye is also implying that he is such a good Christian that God has him on speed-dial.

Moreover, he subtlely back-plays on the previous line about psychics… who are often on “psychic-hotlines”.
