Kanye West released a new track last night called “Theraflu.” It’s pretty good and in it, he addresses his fashion career for the first time, unless you count the epic Twitter rant of 2012. While he has name-dropped models before, this is one of the only times he’s recalled actually hanging out with them. In the same sentence, he mentions having dinner with Anna Wintour. Impressive:
Dinner with Anna Wintour, racin’ with Anja Rubik
I told you mafuckers it was more than the music
In the projects one day to Project Runway
We done heard all that loud-ass talkin, we used to it.
And we can’t be sure, but this line a few bars later sounds like it could be a message to his critics and detractors:
Whoever think they words affect me is too stupid
And if you could do it better than me then you do it
Not a bad point. West then mentions those $6,000 shoes of his that Colette was selling and how their sheer ridiculousness made news:
We flyer than the parakeet, floatin’ with no parachute
$6,000 pair of shoes, we made it to the Paris news!
Don’t talk about style, ‘cause I embarrass you,
Shut the fuck up when you talk to me ‘fore I embarrass you.
He also has a message for PETA?
Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor
K, we will. Then, he publicly reveals his unrequited love for Kim Kardashian and it’s kind of heartbreaking, in a way:
And I’ll admit I fell in love with Kim
’Round the same time she fell in love with him.
Well that’s cool, baby girl, do your thing,
Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.
He didn’t say anything about those Dior rumors though! Darn. You can listen to the full song below. What do you think?
