Monster, MBDTF (12/13)

List item

Now she claiming that I bruised her eosophagus
Head of the class and she just won a swallowship
I’m living in the future so the present is my past
My presence is a present, kiss my ass

The real skill here is the use of inflection, intonation and rhythm. In fact, it needs to be heard really. Also there is a brilliant verse by Nicki Minaj on this track for largely the same reasons. Kanye talks about his girth which obviously has caused his female companion issues in their oral sexual encounters. He uses word play and double meaning here playing off the idea of oral sex, with academic achievement. All very clever, if not the most highbrow. However, he goes on to say something mildly prophetic as he talks about the future and how he lives in it, a claim he has made many times over and if you are a Kanye fan and watched his impact on the industry, technology etc. first hand, you can only really agree with him. The final line is blunt and a shout out to his ‘haters.’ Whether you love him or loathe him, we are lucky to have him.
