My Favorite Line of All TIME:
Political refugee asylum can be purchased… from Otis. Previously he says he has 5 get out of America free cards, now he’s saying that once he’s out, he can stay there… forever.
Lloyd gettin his MJ on on the chorus. See Rock With You

If you’re a baby, you sleep in a crib. Likewise, if you wanna be Big Sean’s babe, then you gotta lay up in his crib/house.
The sample is “Get into The Party Life” by singer Willie Hale/Little Beaver.
When you roll up, you know it’s about to be a good day (Sunshine).
As opposed to a small corvette that goes particularly slow.
An orgy is a great note to end on.
In the previous line when Wayne made a Star Wars reference, now he’s saying that he’s “training Drake in the ways of the force (training him how to flow)”.
Also, this line is a reference to Adele’s 2011-12 super mega hit, “Rolling In The Deep”.
Also, in his novel, Decoded, he writes that he “…related to him as a kid who had asthma and played sports…” and “… related to the power of his image, too.”
Not to mention, in his second mainstream hit, Over, he makes sure to add his allusion to Marley’s own Trenchtown Rock:
“One thing ‘bout music: when it hits, you feel no pain”
It’s just an exaggeration cause barbies are for younger girls.
Could this be a reference to Stevie Wonder’s Talking Book album?
Also, right when Kanye’s beats got hot, everybody started biting the sped up soul sample style that he had popularized with albums such as The Blueprint and THe College Dropout.
If you’re used to the good life (fillet mignon) , the alternative (hamburger helper) isn’t a worthy substitution.
First time I’ve seen an artist do this: A F&%!$*G QUADRUPLE ENTENDRE:
He’s comparing himself to the legendary musician Prince (or in the infamous musical film, Purple Rain, as “The Kid”)
They love him like he’s Prince. He practically makes girls wet themselves with his appearance.
He’s the kid with the crown or Max in “Where the Wild Things Are” He loves that book. (Kinda soft for a rapper, though)
A prince wears a crown, right?
