WEST, Kanye


Ain't no question if I want it, I need it

I can feel it slowly drifting away from me

I'm on the edge, so why you playing? I'm saying

I will never ever let you live this down, down, down

Not for nothing I've foreseen it, I dream it

I can feel it slowly dripping away from me

No more chances if you blow this, you bogus

I will never ever let you live this down, down, down

Penitentiary chances, the devil dances

and eventually answers to the call of Autumn

all of them fallin' for the love of ballin'

got caught with 30 rocks, the cop look like Alec Baldwin

inter century anthems based off inner city tantrums

based off the way we was branded

face it, Jerome get more time than Brandon

and at the airport they check all through my bag and tell me that it's random

but we stay winning, this week has been a bad massage

I need a happy ending and a new beginning

and a new fitted and some job opportunities that’s lucrative

This the real world, homie, school finished

they done stole your dreams, you dunno who did it

I treat the cash the way the government treats AIDS

I won't be satisfied till all my niggas get it, get it?

Ain't no question if I want it, I need it


s hip hop just a euphemism for a new religion

the soul music for the slaves that the youth is missing

this is more than just my road to redemption

Malcolm West had the whole nation standing at attention

as long as I'm in Polo's smilin’ they think they got me

but they would try to crack me if they ever see a black me

I thought I chose a field where they couldn't sack me

if a nigga ain’t shootin’ a jump shot running a track meet

but this pimp is, at the top of mount Olympus

ready for the World's game, this is my Olympics

we make 'em say ho cause the game is so pimpish

choke a Southpark writer with a fishstick

I insisted to get up offa this dick

and these drugs, niggas can’t resist it

remind me of when they tried to have Ali enlisted

if I ever one of the greatest nigga, I must have missed it!

Ain't no question if I want it, I need it


I need more drinks and less lights

and that American Apparal girl in just tights

she told the director she tryin’a get in a school

he said "take them glasses off and get in the pool"

it's been a while since I watched the tube

cause like a crip said: "I got way too many blues for any more bad news"

I was looking at my resume feeling real fresh today

they rewrite history I don't believe in yesterday

and what's a black beetle anyway, a fucking roach

I guess that’s why they got me sitting in fucking coach

but God said I need a different approach

cause people is looking at me like I'm sniffing coke

its not funny anymore try different jokes

tell 'em hug and kiss my ass, x and o

kiss the ring while they at it, do my thing while I'm got it

play strings for the dramatic

and end all of that wack shit

act like I ain’t had a belt in two classes

I ain’t got it I'm comin’ after whoever who has it

I'm coming after whoever who has it

you blowing up, that's good, fantastic

that y'all, it’s like that y’all

I don't really give a fuck about it at all

cause the same people that tried to black ball me

forgot about 2 things, my black balls

Ain't no question if I want it, I need it


I know cops, hems is lifting lenses

kid, Armani suits, fresh fruits, Bally boots and Benzes

counting up, smoking, one cuff

live as a red Jag, a Louis bag, grabbing a blunt, fuck it

steam about a hundred and one L's

kites off the jails, buying sweats, running up in Stetson

nigga hat game was special

it matched every black pair of Nikes

throwing dice for decimals

the older head, bolder head, would train a soldier head

make sure he right in the field, not a soldier dead

got made code red

break up the black skunk

the black dutch, back of the old shed

if you can't live, you dying

you give or buy in

keep it real or keep it moving, keep grinding

keep shining, to every young man, this is a plan

learn from others like your brothers Rae and Kanye

Not for nothing I've foreseen it, I dream it



I'm living in the 21st century doin' something mean to it

Do it better than anybody you ever seen do it

Screams from the haters, got a nice ring to it

I guess every superhero need his theme music

No one man should have all that power

The clocks tickin' I just count the hours

Stop trippin' I'm tripping off the power

The system broken, the school's closed, the prison's open

We ain't got nothing to lose motherfucker we rollin',

Huh? motherfucker we rollin'

With some light skinned girls and some Kelly Rowland's

In this white man's world we the ones chosen

So goodnight cruel world I'll see you in the mornin',

Huh? I see you in the mornin'

This is way too much, I need a moment.

No one man should have all that power


Fuck SNL and the whole cast


I'm an asshole? You niggas got jokes!

You short minded niggas thoughts is Napoleon

My furs is Mongolian, my ice brought the goalies in

I embody every characteristic of the egotistic

He knows, he's so fuckin' gifted

I just needed time alone, with my own thoughts

Got treasures in my mind but couldn't open up my own vault

My child-like creativity, purity and honesty is honestly being crowded by these grown thoughts

Reality is catching up with me, taking my inner child I'm fighting for custody

With these responsibilities that they entrust in me

As I look down at my diamond encrusted piece thinking...

No one man should have all that power


Colin Powell, Austin Powers

Lost in translation with a whole fuckin' nation

They say I was the abomination of Obama's nation

Well that's a pretty bad way to start a conversation

At the end of the day goddamn it I'm killin' this shit

I know damn well ya'll feelin' this shit

I don't need your pussy, bitch I'm on my own dick

I ain't got a power trip who you going home with?

How 'Ye doin'? I'm Surviving

I was drinkin' earlier now I'm driving

Where the bad bitches huh? Where ya hidin'?

I got the power make your life so excitin'...

Now this'll be a beautiful death


I'm jumping out the window

I'm letting everything go

I'm letting everything go

You got the power to let power go
