Kanye West Addresses Recent Drama In New Song: “Closest Thing To Einstein”

kanye-west-einstein

Kanye West says he’s “This generation’s closest thing to Einstein/ But don’t worry about me, I’m fine.”

West is calling out the labels the blogosphere has characterized him as in his new song “Closest Thing To Einstein” featuring Sampha which he premiered at at Yo Gotti’s album release party Tuesday night. West addresses the Twitter meltdowns, Amber Rose’s finger in the booty claim and the infamous lyric blasting Taylor Swift.

Lyrics worth mentioning:

Debt: “I can’t say no to nobody/ At this rate we gon’ both die broke/ Got friends that ask me for money knowing I’m in debt/ And like my wife said, I still didn’t say no.”

Media: “People try to say I’m going crazy on Twitter/ My friends’ best advice was to stay low … The media said he’s way out of control/ I just feel like I’m the only one not pretending I’m not out of control.”

Money: “Never listen to Hollywood producers/ Don’t stare at money too long, it’s Medusa.”

Amber Rose: “I don’t play like that!”

We imagine he’ll drop the studio version on G.O.O.D. Friday, but until then… listen to the clips below:
