If you’re a frequent reader of my blog you might have noticed I didn’t cover Kanye West’s highly anticipated album, The Life of Pablo. Why? Because it seemed like everyday he was coming out with a new version of it and I didn’t want to write about it until it was 100% complete and there wasn’t so much hype around it. Seems like my instinct was right because just last week he decided to update the album once again (and hopefully for the last time.)
The latest track added to the album is titled “Saint Pablo” featuring Sampha and it was only proper he added it after announcing his Saint Pablo Tour.
Revealing his biggest insecurities, Ye gets deep on “Saint Pablo” and it’s the side I appreciate most about him.
“My wife said, I can’t say no to nobody
And at this rate we gon’ both die broke
Got friends that ask me for money knowin’ I’m in debt
And like my wife said, I still didn’t say no
People tryna say I’m goin’ crazy on Twitter
My friends’ best advice was to stay low
I guess it’s hard to decipher all of the bills
Especially when you got family members on payroll
The media said it was outlandish spendin’
The media said he’s way out of control
I just feel like I’m the only one not pretendin’
I’m not out of control, I’m just not in they control
I know I’m the most influential
That TIME cover was just confirmation
This generation’s closest thing to Einstein
So don’t worry about me, I’m fine”
