What Yeezy Said: "Good morning/On this day we become legendary/Everything we dreamed of/I'm like a fly Malcolm X/Buy any jeans necessary." -"Good Morning"
What We Say: A modern day version of Malcolm...sort of. On Kanye's first album The College Dropout, he rapped about social awareness. Now with his new song "New Slaves," Ye is bringing back his ability to be provocative and get people thinking with his conscious raps. Malcolm X would be proud of Ye's resilience to never back down to "the man." Still, Ye's lyrical uprisings could never compare to X's physical movement and ability to mobilize followers into action.
