Why Uncle Ray and Aunt Shiela always performin'?
The second she storm out then he storm in
Y'all gon' sit down, have a good time this reunion
Ray and Shiela are those two family members that don’t like each other and refuse to be in the same room together.
When the rest of the family thinks they can finally have some peace when Aunt Sheila storms out of the room, they suddenly have to deal with Uncle Ray instead.
Calling it “performing” implies that Kanye thinks they just like being melodramatic for its own sake, they’re just putting on a show and arguing about trivial things. That’s why he’s telling them to just sit down and be friends.
There’s a humourous juxtaposition here in that Kanye (who is young in the family) is the one telling the “grown ups” to behave.
