Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Black Skinhead. By Songfacts®.

West premiered this self-professed theme song May 18, 2013 on Saturday Night Live. "For my theme song, my leather black jeans on My by any means on."

West has strong words for the mainstream media's portrayal of him, especially those who criticize his relationship with model girlfriend Kim Kardishan. He's likening his choice of a Caucasian woman to that of an ape in a white man's world, failing to appreciate the beauty of the beast: "Enter the kingdom But watch who you bring home. You see a black man with a white woman. At the top floor they gone come to kill King Kong."

Chicago is one of America's most violent places, and here West references the tragedies in his native city claiming that the media have as little concern for poor black kids, as they do about dead Iraqis. "If I don't get ran out by Catholics Here come some conservative Baptists Saying he overreacting Like them black kids in Chiraq bitch." The rhyme echoes previous sentiments West has rhymed about on songs like 2007's "Everything I Am" and The Throne's "Murder to Excellence" in 2011.
