*3 Minute Pause*

from Kanye West (Ft. Jay Z) – Illest Motherfucker Alive Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Meant to separate the regular tracks from the Deluxe Tracks, fitting on an album devoted to separating the obscenely wealthy from the merely rich.

An interesting thought to the 3 minute pause would go back to “Lift Off”, with the Apollo 11 sample near the end of the track. Before a space shuttle enters back into Earth’s atmosphere, there is a 3 minute period of non-contact or radio silence between Houston and the shuttle, as dramatically highlighted in the movie Apollo 13. Perhaps this is their way of “coming back to Earth” after taking the listener to “the moon and stars” on WTT.
