LYRIC: Can’t a young n*gga get money anymore? Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor

DECODED: Inspired by LL Cool J’s hip-hop classic “Illegal Search,” Kanye taunts his haters, asking them a rhetorical question about the amount of money he’s earning. He then dares PETA (People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals) to flour bomb or throw paint on his mink coat, which they’ve been known to do to many celebrities who choose to wear fur.

LYRIC: Dinner with Anna Wintour (Whoa!), racin’ wit’ Anja Rubik I told you motherf*ckers 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

DECODED: Kanye notes his ties with the fashion industry’s elite, including fashion’s most influential woman Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour. Kanye moves from Anna Wintour’s high society status to schmoozing with Polish model Anja Rubik, who comes in at number 3 on 2011’s Top 50 Models In Fashion list. 

Kanye highlights his ability to be in the “hood” (projects) one day and then be on the “Project Runway,” which is a reality TV series for aspiring fashion designers. The show was once hosted by model Heidi Klum. Kanye is experiencing his own “Project Runway” with the production of his own women’s line, which he debuted at Paris Fashion Week.

LYRIC: And the whole industry wanna fuck yo’ old chick Only n*gga I got respect for is Wiz

DECODED: Kanye addresses how other rappers want to get with his ex-girlfriend/model Amber Rose. Rolling Papers rapper Wiz Khalifa is the most notable individual who hooked up with Amber Rose after she and Kanye split.

Wiz Khalifa recently proposed to Amber Rose and they’re due to walk down the aisle soon.

Kanye pays respect to Wiz because it takes a lot of balls to get married to such a prominent chick in the industry while being a rapper.

LYRIC: And I’ll admit, I fell in love with Kim  ‘Round the same time she had fell in love wit’ him (Whuh)

DECODED: Rumors were swirling that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were dating each other, but both camps never addressed their “romantic” relationship. It wasn’t until Kanye’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose revealed to the world that Kim Kardashian was the main reason she and Kanye broke up that the ‘truth’ came out. 

Kim denied such allegations, but Kanye raps that he fell in love with Kim, but the whole time she was falling in love with him (Kris Humphries). Kim went on to marry and divorce Kris Humphries within a year of meeting him.
