Yeezy would later come back to this line on Watch the Throne, on “Niggas in Paris.”

If you you believe the song’s a metaphor for drug addiction, this is the moment when he first takes it in a bathroom and he feels better than he ever has before… Of course, it won’t end well.

This also drives home how the “marrying a porn star” thing really is just a big fantasy and that the reality is a little less glamarous

‘Ye, always ready to show off his knowledge of fashion, name drops Martin Margiela, a Belgian designer. A Margiela blazer like this will set you back about $1,850.

Margiela is referenced by Ye here (just as Jay has done before) to show off his avant-garde taste in style, in contrast with the last few lines where he exhibits his street knowledge via references to “killas” and “dealers”. Maison Martin Margiela clothes are extremely expensive, yes, but rather known better for being what even fashion insiders themselves consider to be very chic and cool (as opposed to the more cliche Gucci or Vuitton).

Could also be a play on words: what’s that jacket (Jack) Margiela (Jill)?

Looks like we caught ‘Ye in the middle of a phone call.

This may be a nod to Alicia Keys' song “You Don’t Know My Name”, which features production from Kanye and has the same line at the beginning of its phone call interlude.

In the Bible, Adam, God’s first man, surrendered one of his ribs so that Eve, the first woman, could be created. Kanye suspects his prime rib will create a prime woman.

Colored-people time (or CPT) is the tendency for black people to be late — this is often considered a racial slur.

Kanye has a hidden track called “Late” — all about being late — on his classic sophomore album, Late Registration

i think this a reference to an early newgrounds submit

Add a suggestion

“Public enemies” is the opposite of “secret lovers.” It’s also a potential reference to the rap group, Public Enemy.

"Man, I'm "6 foot, 7 foot, 8 foot.."" (Game – Uncle Otis) | accepted

Not only a reference, but a sample.

"Rap is at a stand still, mannequin" (Chiddy Bang – Get Up In The Morning) | accepted

It appears that Nicki Minaj may have stolen, borrowed, or otherwise jacked this line in her song Roman’s Revenge

The line “But, I just thought you should know/We hit the liquor store” should be included in the bridge.

“Shortage?” Did you mean: abbreviation?

"I’mma never stop even with a muzzle on my face" (Busta Rhymes – HAM Remix) | rejected

Possible reference to the mad dogs gracing the cover art of Watch the Throne, the album on which HAM is expected to be released.

"Yay" (Kanye West – Good Life) | rejected

Also a homophone of ‘Ye, abbreviation of Kanye.

“How ‘Ye doing? Who 'Ye screwing?” is a reference to the line “How 'Ye doing? I’m surviving” from the original song.

"Zee on my like Jeezy, Weezy, Yeezy" (Das Racist – And the White Man Get Paid Off All of That) | accepted

This line refers to hip-hop (nick)names; Young Jeezy, Lil Wayne (Weezy), and Kanye West (Yeezy).

Jay also suggests that any onlookers to this feet would experience stirred emotions, or “been moved.” Excellent multiple-entendre, Hov.
