Also plays with previous line referencing Brad Pitt leaving Jennifer Aniston for Angelina Jolie. He left Aniston sad and got a bad reputation because of that.
Also a play on White House and Senate. Gambino and Q are in the White House, they’re at the top, all the others are just in the Senate and are hoping to one day get in the White House
Kendrick is in a place where both outcomes are bad for him. If he falls down, he would be failing. But if he keeps going up, he would have to go against the best of the best, his heros would just become targets to surpass.
Also a play on Vowel/Vow
Following the line about the models all giving him head at once, he’s saying that it can’t replace her, and it’s not even half the feeling he use to get when she would say she loves him
You guys should add this link to the SNL Live version of the song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuhl6Ji5zHM
You guys should add this link to the SNL Live version of the song. Much better than the projection videos. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SoKFycTmVU
Kanye uses a bit of irony there by saying “you niggas can’t control me” when he’s obviously refering to the rich white people running all of those corporations
It is also a reference to the Trojan Horse. Kanye’s fame forces him to not trust anyone and always expect to be set up. “300 girls ? That sounds like a TRAP. Where’s the Trojans ? Where’s the paparazzis ?”
