Yo G they can't stop me from rapping can they? Can they huh? I spit it through the wire man Too much stuff on my heart right now man I'll probably risk it all right now It's a life or death situation man Y'all don't really understand how I feel right now man It's your boy Kanye to the, Chi-Town what's going on man
I drink a Boost for breakfast, and Ensure for dizzert Somebody ordered pancakes I just sip the sizzurp That right there could drive a sane man bizzerk Not to worry the Mr. H says that the izzles back to wizzerk How do you console my mom or give her life support When you telling her your son's on life support And just imagine how my girl feel On the plane scared as hell that her guy look like Emitt Till She was with me before the deal she been trying to be mine She a delta so she been throwing that Dynasty sign I'm use to trying to reline I been trying to signed Trying to be a millionaire How I use two lifelines In the same hospital where Biggie Smalls died The doctor said I had blood clots But I ain't Jamaican man Story on MTV and I ain't trying to make a band I swear this right here is history in the making man
I really apologize how I sound right now man If it's unclear at all, man They got my mouth wired shut for like I don't know the doctor said for like six weeks You know we had reconstru, I had reconstructive surgery on my jaw Looked in the mirror half my jaw was missing and half my mouth man I couldn't believe it But I'm still here for y'all right now yo This is what I gotta say yo Yeah, turn me up yeah
What if somebody from the Chi was ill got a deal on the hottest rap label around But he wasn't talking bout coke and birds it was more like spoken word Except he really putting it down And he explained the story about how blacks came from glory And what we need to do in the game Good dude, Bad night, Right place, Wrong time In the blink of an eye his whole life changed If you could feel how my face felt you would know how Mase felt Thank God I ain't too cool for the safe belt I swear to God drive two on the sue I got lawyer for the case to keep what's in my safe; safe My dogs couldn't tell if I I look Tom Cruise on Vanilla Sky, it was televised It's been an accident like GEICO They thought I was burnt up like Pepsi did Michael I must gotta angel Cause look how death missed his ass Unbreakable, would you thought they called me Mr. Glass Look back on my life like the ghost of Christmas past Toys are Us where I used to spend that Christmas cash And I still won't grow up, I'm a grown ass kid Swear I should be locked up for stupid shit that I did But I'm a champion, so I turned tragedy to triumph Make music that's fire, spit my soul through the wire
Know what I'm saying When the doctor told me I had a um, I was goin to have a plate on my chin I said dog don't you think didn't you realize I'll never make it on the plane now It's bad enough I got all this jewelry on Can't be serious man

Elizabeth from Myrtle Beach, ScI was in a pretty bad accident myself recently. I was hit by what could only be described as a drunk driver, they haven't found him yet. I had stitches above my eye and my arm was broken in 2 spots. The only thing I could think about was the damage and how I was going to pay for it. I heard on the radio that there is a place I could get great discount Volvo parts that I need. I was so happy with the deals I got.
@deeprez_ from Arizona, AzMase once burned a Wu Tang flag, and Ghost punched him. "If you could feel how my face felt, you would know how Mase felt"-Kanye west
Rebeca from Spartanburg, ScI haven't listened to this yet, i like stronger though :D
Nikki from Chicago, IlThanks Jesse, "Chi-town stand up!" And to the comment about Kanye West reppin' Chicago. I think he does way better than R. Kelly reppin' Chicago because he reached back,he's helping Chicago artist who haven't had much mainstreet success as well as discovering new Chicago artist. He's helping Shawnna, Twista, Do or Die, Bumpy Johnson, Rhymefest, Lupe Fiasco and Malik Yusef and he's introducing the world to GLC, Really Doe. Hustle and G.O.O.D. Music (2 Kanye labels and management companies) are going to put Chicago on the map in the near feature that people from Chicago won't have to leave and go to NY or LA, etc. to pursue their musical careers.
Evan from Pensacola, FlKanye West is a great solo artist. If you do not think so you obviously havent listened to many of his songs and if you think this is his best song, once again, you havent listened to much of his music. The song is good, but by far not one of his best. I am a big fan of music and kanye is in my top 5. You need to listen to Kanye's first album The College Dropout. Even though he has a lot of featured artist, he is still a great solo artist. He is a lyricist. Listen to Spaceship, Never let you down, Family Business, and Last Call. All on his first album.
Mariana from Charleston, ScEmmett Till was from Chicago, I'm pretty sure. The case made headlines also because his mother had an open casket for Emmett, despite--or because of--his mutilated face. The magazine Jet photographed it and put it on their cover, which more or less forced a lot of America to face racism in the country. And yeah, this song is amazing.
Stefanie Magura from Rock Hill, ScIf i remember correctly, emmett Till wasn't from Mississippi. He had just gone down there to visit his grandparents. As a result, he didn't know as much about the segregation that was going on in the South at the time. After all, the South at the time was one of the worst places for black people to live. segregation was rampant and if any of them said anything wrong or did anything wrong they could be brutally mutilated. feel free to correct me if any of this is wrong. Does anyone know where Emmett till was from? He didn't live in the south. I want to say he was from Michigan, but I'm really not sure.
Kristen from Aurora, IlHey what about his other songs? His song School Spirit mentions my school in Aurora.
Jesse from Chicago, Ilsecond of all, Not since R. Kelly(save the jokes) has someone represented chicago in the R&B/hip hop world so proudly in their music
Jesse from Chicago, IlFirst of all, Nikki, you summed up this song perfectly in songfacts. Everything you said, I came to this website to say. you saved me the trouble. thanx. Jesse=CHI TOWN
Allison from New York, NyThis song is Kanye's best by far. You can hear in his voice how much he loves music. But although Kanye is a great producer (Jay-Z, Twista, keysha cole) hes not a great solo artist. Its a shame all his songs arent this good
