Watch: Kanye West – New Slave



[Verse 1]
My momma was raised in an era when
Clean water was only served to the fairer skin
Doing clothes you would have thought I had help
But they wasn’t satisfied unless I picked the cotton myself
You see it’s broke nigga racism
That’s that “Don’t touch anything in the store”
And this rich nigga racism
That’s that “Come here, please buy more”
What you want, a Bentley? Fur coat? A diamond chain?
All you blacks want all the same things
Used to only be niggas now everybody playing
Spending everything on Alexander Wang
New Slaves

You see it’s leaders and there’s followers
But I’d rather be a dick than a swallower

[Verse 2]
I throw these Maybach keys, I wear my heart on the sleeve
I know that we the new slaves, I see the blood on the leaves
I see the blood on the leaves, I see the blood on the leaves
I know that we the new slaves, I see the blood on the leaves
They throwing hate at me, want me to stay at ease
Fuck you and your corporation, y’all niggas can’t control me
I know that we the new slaves, I know that we the new slaves
I’m ’bout to wild the fuck out, I’m going Bobby Boucher
I know that pussy ain’t free, you niggas pussy, ain’t me
Y’all throwing contracts at me, you know that niggas can’t read
Throw ’em some Maybach keys, fuck it, c’est la vie
I know that we the new slaves, y’all niggas can’t fuck with me
Y’all niggas can’t fuck with Ye, y’all niggas can’t fuck with Ye
I’ll move my family out the country, so you can’t see where I stay
So go and grab the reporters, so I can smash their recorders
See they’ll confuse us with some bullshit like the New World Order
Meanwhile the DEA, teamed up with the CCA
They tryna lock niggas up, they tryna make new slaves
See that’s that private owned prison, get your piece today
They prolly all in the Hamptons, bragging ’bout their maid
Fuck you and your Hampton house, I’ll fuck your Hampton spouse
Came on her Hampton blouse and in her Hampton mouth
Y’all ’bout to turn shit up, I’m ’bout to tear shit down
I’m ’bout to air shit out, now what the fuck they gon’ say now?

[Outro: Frank Ocean]
I can’t get too high, get too high then
So long, so long, so long
Cannot find faith, [?] baby
I can’t do it
I can’t [?] another love and
I won’t believe in the [?]
Think you can’t get too high, get too high
Too high again
Too high

  • Remember Kanye West is being ranting out and screaming all about during his tour; in London, Paris and even at MET Gala about how he do not like corporation and business people. He continued saying that  the business people being asking him to sale products (shampoo) for them. His rant went on about business people saying they called him to ask how many product can he sell?, how many shampoo with his face can he sell?, “we will make you a better show” but with their company ads on it. And Mr West don’t “like business people”. He said “when is making music become about making money”
  • Kanye West also been speaking out about how the media and even other rappers and performers been treating his relationship with Kim Kardashian.
  • Mr West also recently wasn’t happy with his position on the list of best rappers, where he was placed at No. 7
  • Since the incident with Taylor Swift years ago, Kanye West is also not too happy that press is being dragging the issue and hunting him with it always even long after his apology.
  • Kanye West fashion, do you want to talk about that? Skirt or his style?
  • Kanye West said on his London tour rant that “They” pressurizing him, even the guy standing by his side, is that Jay-Z?
  • Mr West is being for a while now ranting out that the media, press and business world is been trying to control him and his craft.
  • Kanye West is not happy with how he’s been linked with Illuminati, Free Mason and other devilish worship.

We believe these above reasons are why he’s out and making these kind of music…

  1. Let me get this straight. He’s got a hundred million bucks and we’re supposed to feel sorry for him?

    He considers himself a slave?

  2. well i deserve that we all slaves u can be the riches to the poorest but as what he is implying that the rap game got him in a situation as he is a slave in the rap game meaning that society want him to be a something else other than an artist he want to be kanye west and not want to put as a slave.
