The drums in this portion come from Butcher Brown’s “Cali Riding.” While we’re not exactly sure who did what on this beat, it’s safe to say that Rahki added this part, since he’s worked with the band before.
This intro is taken from Danyèl Waro’s “Mandela”; the lyrics are sung in Réunion Creole and translate to this (the bold lines are the ones included in the song):
What is wisdom, Mandela?
What is wisdom? Teach it to me. Even a slap, Oh Mandela,
You didn’t give to their face.
It’s me who’ve been hurt.
The first two lines refer to the apartheid in South Africa and how Mandela wanted people to live in peace together, no matter their race (and therefore their ancestors). The sampled ones say that the message Mandela wanted to deliver during his life hit Kanye way more than it actually hit the people it was referred to.
