Tell PETA my mink is dragging on the floor

from Kanye West (Ft. DJ Khaled) – Cold Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Earlier this year Kanye West was spotted rocking a $100,000 mink coat which caused some controversy. PETA commented on this, saying he’s pathetic. Kanye couldn’t care less about what PETA has to say. Serves them right for talking greasy about his girlfriend.

PETA didn’t take too kindly to ‘Ye’s comment:

What’s draggin' on the floor is Kanye’s reputation as a man with no empathy for animals or human beings. He’s a great musician but doesn’t seem to have the fashion sense to design anything more than caveman costumes. We keep hoping that one day he’ll find his heart and join evolved style icons — including Russell Simmons, Pink, and Natalie Portman — who have dropped animal skins.

A similar “mink is dragging on the floor” line had already been used in fellow Chicagoan Lupe Fiasco’s song “Go To Sleep” and by Diddy in the 1997 track “The World is Filled.”
