Lied van de week: week 32 - 2016

Famous - Kanye West


Of The life of Pablo nu hét meesterwerk van 2016 is of een megalomaan project van een egotripper die zich vertild heeft aan zijn eigenwaan, daar ben ik na maanden nog steeds niet uit. Het album van Kanye West bevat zeker en vast enkele hoogtepunten maar als geheel is het vooral verwarrend. 
Dat is ook het minste wat je kan zeggen van de meer dan tien minuten durende clip bij Famous, nu al berucht vanwege de vele naakte lichamen die samen met Kanye in een superkingsize bed liggen. De clip bevat immers naast het nummer nog andere songs van het album en een lang stuk waarin je de mensen ziet en hoort slapen. Maar: de song zelf is een blijvertje, niet weg te branden uit mijn hoofd.

Je kan het album The life of Pablo nog steeds niet op een fysieke drager kopen. Voor alle up-to-date informatie verwijs ik je dan ook graag naar de site van Kanye West zelf.

Lyrics:

Man I can understand how it might be
Kinda hard to love a girl like me
I don't blame you much for wanting to be free
I just wanted you to know
Swizz told me let the beat rock


For all my Southside niggas that know me best
I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex
Why? I made that bitch famous
God damn
I made that bitch famous
For all the girls that got dick from Kanye West
If you see 'em in the streets give 'em Kanye's bests
Why? They mad they ain't famous
God damn
They mad they're still nameless
(Talk that talk man)
Her man in the store tryna try his best
But he just can't seem to get Kanye fresh
But we still hood famous
God damn
Yeah we still hood famous


I just wanted you to know
I loved you better than your own kin did
From the very start
I don't blame you much for wanting to be free
Wake up Mr West
I just wanted you to know


I be Puerto Rican day parade floatin'
That Benz Marina Del Rey coastin'
She be Puerto Rican day parade wavin'
Last month I helped her with the car payment
Young and we alive, whoo!
We never gonna die, whoo!
I just copped a jet to fly over personal debt
Put one up in the sky
The sun is in my eyes, whoo!
Woke up and felt the vibe, whoo!
No matter how hard they try, whoo!
We never gonna die


I just wanted you to know

Bam bam, bam bam
Bam bam dilla, bam bam
'ey what a bam bam
How you feeling right now, let me see you ladies in the air
Bam bam dilla, bam bam
Bam bam eh
Bam bam, bam bam
Let me see your middle finger in the air
Bam bam, bam bam
Bam bam dilla, bam bam
Let me see you act up in this mother fucker
'ey what a bam bam
Bam bam dilla, bam bam
How you feelin', how you feelin, how you feelin' in this mother fucker, god damn
Bam bam
One thing you can't do it stop us now
Bam bam, bam bam
Bam bam dilla, bam bam
You can't stop the thing now
'ey what a bam bam
Man it's way too late, it's way too late, it's way too late you can't
Bam bam dilla, bam bam
Bam bam, bam bam
Bam bam, bam bam
To the left, to the right
Bam bam dilla, bam bam
I wanna see everyone's hands in the air like this
'ey what a bam bam
Bam bam, bam bam
Bam bam dilla, bam bam


I just wanted you to know
I loved you better than your own kin did
From the very start
I don't blame you much for wanting to be free
I just wanted you to know
