Kanye West – Mama’s Boyfriend

For those of you out there that still insist that Kanye West is a douchebag without feelings or emotions, I strongly urge you to listen to this honest and extremely heartfelt song. The lyrics discuss past tensions involved in dealing with various boyfriends his mother brought around him as a child. He elaborates on his feelings of anamosity towards these men and even emphasizes on the irony that he has actually found himself in the reveresed situation several times in his adult life.

Though the song’s lyrical content is all memorable, one lyric specifically stands out to me over all else:

“I drew a picture of her that’d make her proud/But the door was locked and the T.V up so loud

I screamed, I ain’t goin’ to sleep anytime soon/And when I do, I’m sleeping in my Mama’s room”

This admitted state of vulnerability reflects his truest and most desperate sense of distress. Just reading those words aloud gives me chills.

Nothing short of a masterpiece, this song includes everything that we have come to expect from the man. On top of the obvious lyrical depth, the instrumentals are more than inspiring. The beat, like any Kanye West production, is worthy of applause and commendment. The catchy samples and rhythmic drum loops provide an entrancing method of drawing fans into a more serious song.

I highly recommend that you take an honest and open listen.

    I am not a fan of this song. Not because of the content but rather the melodic approach. Too reminiscent of his College Dropout days. I don’t like the way Yeezy sounds on these beats. Weird? I know, it’s just an odd bias I have.

       Fair enough dawwwg. That’s why we’re all different. I’ve been on repeat for days with this joint personally!

    Kanye is the king, I so wanna punch him in the face though!

    But truly he is the best in the game, no dispute no surrender.

    This beat makes me lose my mind, reminds of of his College Dropout days.
