Lyric of the Day
Kanye West has a nice little sequence from _Gold Digger_, which was a hit for a few minutes. Lots of bleeping because it uses the “N” word. But this bit about the ambition has some _teeth_ in it:
You go out to eat and he can’t pay
Y’all cant leave
There’s dishes in the back
Ya gotta roll up ya sleeves
But while y’all washin’ watch him!
He gon’ make it to a Benz out of that Datsun!
He got that ambition baby
Look at his eyes
This week he moppin’ floors
Next week it’s the fries

I didn’t forget it.
Another standout track from Kanye is _Roses_, which I really like. The outrage and pain shines through, and it tastes like truthfulness. Truthfulness I like.

You forgot the next verse!
“And they’ll keep callin but you’ll stay right girl…
and when he get on he’ll leave your ass for a white girl”
