Old Kanye

anonymous asked:

Who is your top five? Mine are: J. Cole, Nas, Jay Z, (old school) Kanye & Drake

kanye, kid ink, jay-z,.. I never can say a top five cause it always depends on my mood.. 

They say people in your life are seasons,
And anything that happen is for a reason,
And niggas guns a clappin and keep to squeezin’,
And Gran keep prayin’ and keep believin’,
And Jesus and one day that ya see him,
Till they walk in his footsteps and try to be him,
The devil is alive I feel him breathin’,
Claimin’ money is the key so keep on dreamin’,
And put them lottery tickets just to tease us,
My aunt Pam can’t put those cigarettes down,
Now my lil cousin smokin those cigarettes now,
His job trying to claim that he too niggerish now,
Is it cuz his skin blacker than licorice now?
I can’t figure it out
Im Stickin around.

Kanye school himself in his home studio, 1997.

“Lock yourself in a room doing 5 beats a day for 3 summers.

That’s a Different World, like Cree Summer’s.

I deserve to do these numbers.

The kid that made that

Deserves that Maybach

So many records in my basement

I’m just waiting on my spaceship…”
