Kanye West Says That “New Slaves” Contains “The Best Rap Verse Of All Time”

5732e0faadd14093c9c9b71402aad78b Kanye West Says That “New Slaves” Contains “The Best Rap Verse Of All Time”

Kanye West has found yet another way to draw attention to Yeezus, an album that already experienced landmark sales and a high-profile marketing campaign. This time, he took to Twitter to launch a debate: “The 2nd verse of New Slaves is the best rap verse of all time … meaning … OF ALL TIME IN THE HISTORY OF RAP MUSIC, PERIOD[.]”

To recap, the second verse of “New Slaves” discusses preoccupations, from West’s point of view: Rappers eye Maybach keys as they fail to read their record contracts. Reporters try to trail him and his family, as they further attempt to link him (and other rappers) to the Illuminati: “See they’ll confuse us with some bullshit, like the New World Order.”

Throughout, West spells out what he sees through all these distractions: These New Slaves are the United States’ growing and primarily black prison population. While rap has recently and increasingly drawn similar connections — see: Killer Mike‘s “Reagan” — “New Slaves” may be the only song to have debuted on Saturday Night Live and been fact-checked by the ACLU. Still, West’s Twitter call amounted to a few sound points, if not some scoffing.
