I can literally say antisemitic shit and they can't drop me. Now what?

Mistakes, AdidasKanye West, October 2022, 9 days before being dropped by Adidas

Don't care what you say, nothin' on me
I don't care 'bout the lawyer fees
I don't care 'bout your loyalties
God will solve it all for me

Kanye West - God Breathed, Album: Donda

I was up for sale, but I couldn't tell
God made it rain, the devil made it hail
Dropped out of school, but I'm that one at Yale
Made the best tracks and still went off the rail

Kanye West - Hurricane, Album: Donda

All that smoke kept a scent
Everything I spoke, what I meant
Never disguise my intent, lines outside the event
Brought my life out the trench

Kanye West - Off the Grid, Album: Donda

We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States.

Kanye West, July 2020

Is hip-hop just a euphemism for a new religion?
The soul music of the slaves that the youth is missing

Kanye West - Gorgeous, Album: My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

My friend showed me pictures of his kids
And all I could show him was pictures of my cribs
He said his daughter got a brand new report card
And all I got was a brand new sports car

Kanye West - Welcome To Heartbreak, Album: 808s & Heartbreak

See, I just want him to have an easy life, not like Yeezy life
Just want him to be someone people like
Don’t want him to be hated all the time, judged
Don’t be like your daddy that'd never budge
And I’ll never let him ever hit a strip club
I learned the hard way, that ain’t the place to get love

Kanye West - New Day, Album: Watch the Throne

Up from the ashes into the sky
Found a redeemer, how I survive
Voice of their mothers, Mary and Christ
Your light has healed me, blessed with new life

Kanye West - Up From The Ashes, Album: Jesus Is King

So much hate at the top, it's a lonely place
When you find out the opps ain't the only snakes
And your spouse only know what you don't erase
The world only know you by your worst mistakes

Kanye West - One Minute, Album: SKINS von XXXTentacion

I'm a sick fuck, I like a quick fuck
I like my dick sucked, I'll buy you a sick truck
I'll buy you some new tits, I'll get you that nip-tuck
How you start a family? The condom slipped up

Kanye West - I Love It (mit Lil Pump)

You got sick thoughts? I got more of 'em
You remember bad bitches that you smashed? I recorded 'em
She said 'fuck weed' 'cause she love X
If she suck seed, that's a success
If a girl cum, that's a fuck fest
And we gon' score 100 on this drug test

Kanye West - XTCY

They say good things come to those who wait
So I’mma be at least about a hour late

Kanye West - Start It Up, Album: H.F.M. 2 (The Hunger For More 2)

All these walls that keep us from loving each other as one family or one race - racism, religion, where we grew up, whatever, class, socioeconomic - what makes us be so selfish and prideful, what keeps us from wanting to help the next man, what makes us be so focused on a personal legacy as opposed to the entire legacy of a race.
