A weekend before the June 18th release date put in place for Kanye West’s 6th album, Yeezus, the powers of the internet caught wind of a leak, and with the click of a download link (the right one, not the pseudo ones that linger in the same area) everyone had access to Kanye’s lyrical ingenuity.
What exactly does that mean? It means that the raps of Kanye on Yeezus are now in the hands of the reckless youth and eager-to-be-relevant social media stunters who will tweet, Facebook, Instagram caption and sidewalk chalk the fuck out of every catchy line on the album before you even form a strong opinion on the body of work.
A few weeks ago, we rounded up all of the rap lyrics that needed to be retired from social media, but now being the forward thinkers we are, we’ve decided to round up all the most notable quotables from Yeezus that we know you’re going to abuse on social media. Consider this an accurate cheat sheet.
You’re welcome; now hurry up with my damn croissant!
TRACK 1: ON SIGHT
WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: The same men and women who through fits for bottle service just to Instagram P.O.V. photos of them standing on the couch.
“Indian hair and no moccasins”
“Black timbs all on your couch again”
“And I know she like chocolate men. She got more niggas off than Cochran”
“No sports bra lets keep it bouncing”
TRACK 2: BLACK SKINHEAD
WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: The same person who currently tweets/Instagrams about their late night grind and frequently posts “sleep is the cousin of death,” “Vamp life,” or anything of the variety.
“Pardon, I’m getting my scream on”
“Four in the morning, and I’m zoning they say I’m possessed, it’s an omen”

“You niggas ain’t breathing you gasping.”
“These niggas ain’t ready for action.”
TRACK 3: I AM A GOD
WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: The self-absorbed professional on the rise who just happens to really be feeling themselves at the moment, and simply has no time to wait.
“Hurry up with my damn massage.”
“Hurry up with my damn ménage.”
“Hurry up with my damn croissants.”
“And here’s a few snake-ass niggas to bite you.”
“Old niggas mentally still in high school.”
“Nobody else had swag, man, we the Rat Pack”
“I know he the most high But I am a close high”
TRACK 4: NEW SLAVES
WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: The forward thinking former Africana studies major, who also frequently posts links to conspiracy theories.
“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 in, please buy more.”
“Spending everything on Alexander Wang.”
“You see there’s leaders and there’s followers But I’d rather be a dick than a swallower.”

“Y’all ’bout to turn shit up. I’m ’bout to tear shit down. I’m ’bout to air shit out”
TRACK 5: HOLD MY LIQUOR
WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: Everyone and anyone who posts anything drinking/ smoking /partying related. Be ready to make way to the new “sunglasses and Advil” of our time.

“I’m hanging on a hangover.”
“You love me when I ain’t sober. You love me when I’m hungover”
“Late night organ donor After that he disown ya”
“Soul mates become soulless”
TRACK 6: I’M IN IT
WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: Two grades of people will find themselves posting almost every lyric to this song. 1. The men who comment with “I would lick your butt” on Instagram photos, and 2. The women who post those very “butt on the sink” Instagram photos.
“Damn your lips very soft as I turn my Blackberry off and I turn your bath water on and you turn off your iPhone”
“Your titties, let ‘em out, free at last. Thank God almighty, they free at last”

“She cut from a different textile”
“Black girl sippin’ white wine”
“They be balling in the D-League”
“I be speaking Swaghili”
TRACK 7: BLOOD ON THE LEAVES
WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: This song is so dope, I am actually giving a free pass to anyone and everyone to utilize lyrics to it on social media…as long as they know the actual meaning behind the phrase “strange fruit.”
“I’m holdin’ down the summer now.”
“These bitches surroundin’ me All want somethin’ out me”
“We could’ve been somebody ’stead you had to tell somebody.”

“She Instagram herself like #BadBitchAlert”
“He Instagram his watch like #MadRichAlert”
“Two-thousand-dollar bag with no cash in your purse”
TRACK 7: GUILT TRIP
WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: Some salty men and women who need fresh subliminals to take shots at their significant others, and the singles who are out enjoying the fancy things, on someone elses’ dime.
“Fancy like the things she likes. She lives her life”
“Pour a little champagne, cranberry vodka”
“I hit her with Jamaican dick, I’m the new Shabba”
“Star Wars fur, yeah I’m rockin’ Chewbacca”
“If you love me so much then why’d you let me go?”
TRACK 8: SEND IT UP
WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: Anyone with confidence levels measurable to Yeezy’s…typically while they are posting photos of pre-games or reminiscing on a night out the morning after.
“Success got ‘em jealous”
“Last night my bitches came in twos”
“The greatest shit in the club Since “In Da Club”"
“I be going hard, I got a name to prove.”
“And her heart colder than the souls of men”
“Louboutin on the toes again”
TRACK 9: BOUND 2
WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: The people tweeting Send It Up and Bound 2 will be one and the same, just looking to turn up at high octaves and stunt on social media with pre-recorded lyrics to match. Can’t be mad at that.
“When a real nigga hold you down, you supposed to drown”
“They ordered champagne but still look thirsty”
“Rock Forever 21 but just turned thirty”
“This that red cup, all on the lawn shit”
“Got a fresh cut, straight out the salon, bitch”
“One good girl is worth a thousand bitches”**
**EDITOR’S NOTE: WARNING: We are predicting this to be THE most overused line on social media from the album. Then July 4th will come, and we’ll have all new Jay-Z lines to update our statuses with.
