Over the years, ‘Ye’s made his stance on parenthood pretty clear and now, we’re going to revisit some of those lyrical gems!
“Weren't you at niece's graduation? Man, I hate those kids!” - Birthday Song
Then, of course, you have his ever-so-classic realization:
“18 years, 18 years, she got one of yo' kids, got you for 18 years!” - Gold Digger
Yet, no matter how clear Yeezy might’ve made it, there was still a part of him that had his now baby Kimye's best interest in mind!
“She need a daddy, baby please, can’t let her grow up in that ghetto university!” - All Of The Lights
And then, in reflecting upon his own childhood, Kanye has previously rhymed:
“I don’t know, I just want it better for my kids — and I ain’t sayin we was from the projects, but every time I wanted layaway or a deposit, my dad'll say, ‘when you see clothes, close your eyelids.’” - Champion
But don’t get him wrong — he wasn’t always planning on raising a family!
“And a n***a still young, wanna have no kids, but I've been practicing with some actresses as bad as shit.”- H.A.M
And last but most certainly not least, quite possibly Kanye’s own self-fulfilling prophecy:
"See you know my style, I'm very wild. And I vow that my child will be well endowed like his daddy. And tell him that your mama had a fattie… he looked up at me said, "daddy, that's the reason why you had me?"
Yep, we was practicing! 'Til one day, your ass bust through the packaging! You know what though? You my favorite accident, so go 'head, pop some Cristal for my newborn child!" - Celebration
What a coincidence! LOLz!
Wonder if that's another one of Kimmy's favorite songs of his???
