Despite only having seven tracks, Kanye managed to address everything from his wife Kim Kardashian to music mogul Russell Simmons.
The rapper revealed how Kardashian West reacted after his comments about slavery on one track. “Wife calling screaming saying we’re about to lose it all I had to calm her down ‘cos she couldn’t breathe/I told her she could leave me now but she wouldn’t leave,” he rapped. “This is what they mean for better or for worse huh?” “Russell Simmons want to pray for me too/ I pray for him because he got Me Too’d,” he rapped.
