      @JGM R6 hey I dont listen to a lot of rap lately. Rap is stupid music for the most part yes I listen to drake kendrick some j cole black thought DOOM the new nas album sometimes but Im more into real music black sabbath, led zeppelin, pink floyd. rap is detrimental for the psyche. its all about money and accolades and stupid narcissism and dikriders on the hype. its childs music. no musicality only samples

    Sometimes Fantano puts too much weight on having a perfect and clever verse that is topical and not “cringe.” I personally think the real ness and heart of Kanye’s verse is killer. He’s the only rapper who says what’s actually on his mind, 100% true to himself and his life, never about superficial stuff. One of my favorite Kanye verses in a while and on a sick beat

    I think it's hypocritical going against Kanye for not sounding cool about his rage or for not sounding polished while venting. He's literally riding off his raw emotions and talking about his kids being spoilt while acting spoilt himself. It's honest, it's genuine and that right there is being a true artist.

      @French Toast Kanye isn't being vunerable, he's being toxically macho. He indeed needs to man up and get over himself and do some serious reflecting.

    Of course he's coming from a place of insecurity. This is a sad song. If he was confident it wouldnt be a sad song. Art is about letting your inner world show through, and it's exactly what Ye does. It's a phenomenal song in my opinion and it really touched me.

    • Alakrán

      @tikifreakazoid trying to cover up insecurity is a feeling and a mood and that's what Ye presents us in this song. I have felt like this many times. I relate to this song and the feeling Ye put on it. I dont know if its intentional or not, probably a bit of both, but it doesnt really matter, the song is the end result, and It resonates with people, that's why its quality art in my opinion.

He was just expressing how he felt. His daughter is okay and Eminem is doing just fine. Put 2 and 2 together. It's just a song.

  • hatifnat13
    hatifnat13 4 months ago +21

    Honestly , the way Fantano missed on interpretation of this verse shows also why he has given lower scores to MBTF or Yeezus.
    Kanye doesn't always want to always look cool and he is aware that people listening to his music are judging him. He wants to be judged
    Expects it. He prefaces or ends most of his verses with a commentary.
    Here it was saying that he is talking more out of hurt pride than anything else. On MBTF on Power he says that he is omnipowerful etc but then has lines "you don't sleep" and crazy laugh with ending on suicidal ideation. On Yeezus he repeats "I'm a God" and then the second half of a song he screams in terror and hyperventiles suggesting the events surrounding the death of his mother.
    I'm not saying that all Kanye lyrics are top notch, genius level or that there is no cringe or anything like it, but Ye is more self-aware than people are giving him credit.

  • Brianaxel44

    I don’t think kanye meant he was actually going to beat pete Davidson’s ass, I took it as he was saying that his life has gotten to the point where those thoughts are coming into his head. I think the whole point of the verse was to show what’s really going on in his mind (which happens to be a lot of insecurity). I agree I didn’t love the verse, but I did find it interesting

  • Bob Grey
    Bob Grey 4 months ago +45

    Honestly I respectfully disagree with you melon. I think that this Single is an intriguing evolution from what Ye did on donda, and I understand what you mean when you say where is that runaway kanye. I believe that we'll get that type of music soon, but this song really encapsulates what he's feeling at the moment. I wouldn't call this insecure or delusional he is simply speaking about what he feels. I think anyone feeling emotionally wrecked isn't going to be a nice dude especially to the guy who just took his exwife. Ye is expressing those emotions through and through here, but hey i respect you're opinion my melon friend have a great day.

    I think that the rawness conveyed, what you may call insecurity, makes it artistically beautiful. To me, it encapsulates the weird feeling after ending a relationship, and the uncertainty of how you feel before having processed those emotions

    What makes this track good artistically is that he is truly speaking how he feels and does not censor his thoughts. We all know nobody likes they ex's new man, and he comes on here and just lays it out along with the rest of things happening in his life.

      Yeah but I believe Kanye should hold himself to a higher standard and not let this petty emotion show because it’s his reputation on the line. However, Kanye will do what Kanye wants and in itself you kind of have to respect it I guess?

    As a person Kanye isn't my favorite but I do love his music. I respect that you are constructively criticizing that he's coming from a place of insecurity and not confidence, but it's raw emotion. Not what everybody expects of him to be feeling. That's what makes this a great song.

    The game was hungry in this track like he always is , Kanye’s verse on this was way better than any of his verses he’s put out from his last 3 projects and the instrumental was a blend of nostalgic and hip hop this whole song together makes for the best rap song I’ve heard in a while period from anyone

  • Paul Valenzuela
    Paul Valenzuela 4 months ago +12

    As an artist he has the right to communicate how he’s feeling through his craft. The verse can come off sad to you but Ye is in a super sad situation with his family life. He’s trying to make us feel that

    • Paul Valenzuela
      Paul Valenzuela 4 months ago

      @Dissolute Individual he wasn’t trying to come off as anything, he was just being himself and we got what we got. Just cause he raps doesn’t mean he has to fit the “tough guy I’m so cool” stereotype

    • Dissolute Individual
      Dissolute Individual 4 months ago

      nah the exact problem is that the verse comes off as sad and pathetic but that’s not what kanye was aiming for, he was trying to come off as confident and badass but because the delivery and verses where so bad it did the opposite of that

  • jude e
    jude e 4 months ago +3

    I've gotta say Melon, I think you're off the mark on your thoughts regarding Ye's verse. There's no posturing, trying to be the good guy, framing, there's only a story of how Ye is feeling right now, and what he's going through. Yes its sad, because the situation is sad. Yes, he's coming off as insecure, as that's exactly how he's feeling. When did putting your feelings on a track become a bad thing?
    I don't like how this open and vulnerable track has been reduced into a discussion about Pete Davidson. Whilst we're at it the Pete Davidson line is tongue in cheek, he's not actually threatening him. He's hurt by this whole situation, the breakdown of his marriage, the fact he can't be around his children, the fact his wife is moving on. Is he not allowed to feel jealous? vengeful? petty? he's human too. I think this level of openness is missing in a lot of songs these days, Ye has always been willing to put what he's been going through on wax, and this verse has a few great lines "Go to court together/Go to Kourts together", "Don't negotiate with therapists", "Boujie and Unruly need to do some chores". This is a great snapshot of what's going on for Ye right now, something we've all been excited to see - how will the divorce effect him? coparenting these children who've grown up in a very different lifestyle to his own childhood, seeing your ex wife move on, and I think the verse is great as it touches on each of these aspects, whilst including some classic cringe/corny Ye lines too.

    Fantano has really fallen off, I appreciate everyone has their opinion and everyone is allowed to have that. Kanye isn't trying to come across as confident he's broken. I'm not even a big Kanye fan but this song hit me hard because it was the tale of a broken man falling apart his attempts at brag rapping were almost to protect himself from how much pain he's in. The lines about beating Pete Davidson ass are an expression of his insecurity and almost like all he has left is anger and violence from everything. Sure the track was awkward and uncomfortable to listen too but I believe that was his intention. To understand how uncomfortable and awkward he feels.

      @Wonder Bread not the case, if you had read the comment correctly I am discussing how fantano is almost arrogant in the way he is attacking some of kanyes personal moments on the track. Again as mentioned in the comment I'm not a huge kanye fan but this track is different, I believe what people are seeing as infantile and corny I see as vulnerability and almost a lack of self so he resorts to what he knows. Not really about the track more abour fantano.

    Whenever Kanye raps with this conviction it's always memorable. For example, the new life of the party verse is cool, but the drake diss version stands out way more. I get that Kanye comes off as toxic and insecure in verses like that, but it just feels like that's the real emotion kanye suppresses on his album songs

    I m not defending what Kanye is doing but I do understand the hurt. Dude had a family with Kim and she was who he went to after his moms death. To have that person leave you and you’re left on your own causes people to go down dark paths. Not defending it but saying I get it and it’s a lot easier to just say “fly straight”

    “Never trust a happy song” - Grouplove
    This song was fire🔥stop playin. I’m not focused on the gossip behind Kanye’s personal life. The song is super ill, especially for a hungry hip hop head. Kanye has never been known to be an elite MC, like Jay, Nas, Big and Pac. He’s said corny shit in his songs a lot of times. But he’s a genius musician and the drums on this song are heavenly. “Imma get that Thug Life tatted across the navel” 🔥

    I can see where you’re coming from Melon Daddy, but it is so fucking hard to take what you’re truly thinking no matter how dark the thought is and publish it for all to judge and spectate. This is exactly why I love Kanye. He’s gonna speak on how he feels in present moment, high or low. I respect it.

  • fat yeet
    fat yeet 4 months ago +1042

    Anthony missed here. I don't think it could be more obvious that Kanye's verse isn't coming from egotism, as if he truly believes you're supposed to love him, No. The man literally prefaces his verse by exposing his own hypocrisy so that people wont get it twisted. 'God Ye, wanna let God in? But tonight, I guess I'll let my pride win'.
    It comes from a place of vulnerability. A desperate jab into the air hoping he'd hit something, knowing well there's nothing he could touch.
    And the Pete Davidson line is so obviously facetious. Do you really think Kanye is going to beat Pete Davidson's ass.

    When u get into the booth some artist like to have original thoughts making this studio session a moment in time and to truly collaborate and make a memory.. in rap we don’t like hearing the rehearsed shit we like new shit, organic and new and still just as good context wise but I don’t want to feel like I heard this somere before or be thinking of some other rapper when I’m the booth this keeps your work sounding like u … and it’s somthing magical about creating somthing fire from scratch it is also essential if u want to grow as a artist. U want to be able to display your skill when ever u want like a super power some are so good they don’t wright anymore they just feel the lyrics .. these young guys tho be just freestyling bull shit tho cus they don’t know how to feel the lyrics all the way yet they just say shit till they mess up and record over there mess ups that’s why they have good work ethic but bad lyrics or lyric timing but if this trash 80% of the music u listen to now is yeah and u been listening sence the fire that was dark twisted fantasy wich did beter than c 4 remember.. he was the only one to break Wayne streak with artist of the year or able of the year and after that it’s been a new person every year…he did the Taylor swift thing .. this dude don’t fumble cus he caint his presses of making music has evolved to the point of divinity bruh I doubt this man has time to be writing as well and making his beats he is a billionaire now tuning company’s if he wants to keep doing this music he had to evolve I’m sure this is the best kayne or at least the most effective for him right bow being in this state mentality and he is a animal truly being human in his bars and not trying to seem like god … it’s humbling cus we all have broken down before and inspires me to be honest and not to be this toxic but to go towards my dreams even more

    Off the rails and revealing himself with no shame is the art. Good tracks don’t have to be technically sound nor relatable. Just cause you step in his shoes and feel cringe doesn’t mean you could walk a mile in it. He let it all out for that moment. It’s human and showed true colors , whether you like it or not.

    3:13 Ye bares his soul sometimes on tracks, and maybe he isn’t “confident” and maybe it’s clear that he is insecure, but he doesn’t hide it. He shows you how he is feeling even if it isn’t the perfect image of him he wants remembered. It’s a slice of his true soul, and I honestly MUCH prefer that to any confidence-boosted song that would go over well with new audiences. This is Ye again, telling us how he feels. I respect that, a lot.

    I loved the ye verse, honestly I think as far as the divorce bars I definitely think it could have been worse, way more petty and crazy so I think he actually came across as pretty restrained, also as a ye fan the newminati biiiitch line is gold and I love it every time I play the track

    This dichotomy of artsy vs “not so artsy” has always kind of existed between Album Ye and Feature Ye.
    His feature versus are pretty much always a bit more aggressive and referencing contemporary life stuff or pop culture. He never gives the Runaway or Come to Life kind of character.
    I definitely prefer the album stuff.
    Edit: yes, I meant verses instead of versus. It was 3am lol

  • Pasicho

    I don't get the point how you don't trust Kanye's motivations. At this point you gotta acknowledge that Kanye literally puts everything that goes through his mind with no filter on wax. From a self proclaimed narcissist., he would flat-out say that his new relationship was based on jealously if that was the case or it crossed his mind at all. When has Kanye ever hide his tongue in the past?

    I think Fantano missed the ball here. Kanye even sets it up for you. He let his pride win and he's intentionally expressing the more unappealing aspects of his humanity. Not something Kanye does ever. I think its very brave acknowledging that side of oneself because people often find it disgusting and pathetic because it reminds them of it in themselves. It surface level, its childish and its completely unkanyelike but unlike the audience he's not pretending it doesn't exist. Perhaps Fantano was triggered by his own blind spots?

    I liked the song and kinda even liked the Pete Davidson line too.

That's all people think his life is at this point.

    i honestly really do think this verse was meant to be taken pretty lightly. at the end of the day, we really don’t know much about Ye’s personal day to day life, or his relationships with others. For all we know, Pete and Ye could be on a facetime call right now laughing their asses off about how angry people are getting.

Guarantee he talks to Kim almost every day to workout kid situations etc…they are all well aware of how big all the Pete Davidson memes are.
    My guess is, Pete knew this was coming and Kanye prob played it for them b4 it was released. We’ll bite on anything and I’m here for ALL OF IT!!

      Kim’s been around with everybody. She’s the one at fault here. I can’t think of a single reason to leave your husband just because he goes crazy every once in a while. If she were truly committed to the relationship, she would have helped him instead of putting him on blast and then divorcing him months later.
