Verse of the Day: Kanye West – “The One”

YoAz original rendition of cultural icon, Kanye West.

Kanye is really is his own lane right now.  There’s really no one else doing it on his level on so many different fronts.  There’s also no one in music with the type of sheer pop culture influence he has on the urban youth.  I’ll also be outlining his specific influences on some of today’s up and coming superstars (Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Kid Cudi, etc.).

He’s dangerous to the status quo.  And he KNOWS it.  Personally, I think he’s one of the most misunderstood figures of our generation, but all in due time.

“The One”
Cruel Summer

I’m the one, baby
Yeah, I’m the one, baby
Since God gave his only begotten son, baby
It’s hard preachin’ the gospel to the slums lately
So I had to put the church on the drums, baby
You on a run, baby
You on a run, baby
You think you free but you a slave to the funds, baby
You think you me, but you ain’t me, what you done lately?
Mhm that’s cool but I been runnin on the sun, baby
We on a galaxy the haters cannot visit
That’s my reality so get off my Scott Disick
If you ever held a title belt you would know how Michael felt
Tyson, Jackson, Jordan – Michael Phelps
Yeahhh, had to take it to another realm
Cause everything around me got me underwhelmed
Best way to describe my position is at the helm
Best way to describe my new whip – Yeeeaaaaoomm
