Kanye West Appears To Reference Arguments W/ Kim Kardashian On ‘Donda’, Suggests She Lied About Her Whereabouts: Who You Know Spend An Hour In Walgreens?
It looks like Kanye West‘s pending divorce from Kim Kardashian inspired a few lyrics for Donda!
As previously reported, Kanye West‘s highly-anticipated Donda album dropped this past Sunday (Aug. 29th). Now that fans have had the opportunity to check out the compilation, many have begun to draw connections between some of the lyrics and Kanye West‘s personal life–especially regarding his pending divorce from Kim Kardashian.
Kanye appeared to speak on his relationship with Kim Kardashian at length on the album’s 20th track, “Lord I Need You.” In the song, Kanye West notably inquires:
“When you said give me a ring, you really meant a ring, huh?/ Turned out to be more than just a fling, huh?/ Three hours to get back from Palm Springs, huh?/ Who you know spend an hour in Walgreens, huh?”
For context, Palm Springs is about an hour-and-a-half from L.A., and Kris Jenner reportedly owns a home in the area. The Kar-Jenner family frequently vacations there.
Shortly thereafter, Kanye West raps about the pair drifting apart and constantly arguing:
“Too many complaints made it hard for me to think./ Would you shut up? I can’t hear myself drink./ We used to do the freak like seven days a week./ It’s the best collab since Taco Bell and KFC, uh.”
“Talk to me nicely, don’t come at me loud./ You had a Benz at sixteen, I could barely afford a Audi./ How you gon’ try to say sometimes it’s not about me?”
Kanye West later adds:
“Cussin’ at your baby mama, guess that’s why they call it custody.”
Kanye then appears to rap about how he and Kim Kardashian have grown apart throughout their time together:
“Startin’ to feel like you ain’t been happy for me lately, darlin’/ ‘Member when you used to come around and serenade me, woah./ But I guess it’s gone different in a different direction lately.”
On top of “Lord I Need You,” there are a few other songs that seem to reference Kanye West‘s relationship with Kim Kardashian. In “Jail,” Kanye speaks on how the pair would argue through text:
“Don’t you curse at me? on text, why you try to hit the flex?/ I hold up, lik?, ‘What?’/ I scroll, I scroll up like, ‘Next.’/ Guess who’s getting exed?”
He later seemingly references Kim Kardashian’s decision to file for divorce:
“You made a choice that’s your bad, single life ain’t so bad.”
Additionally, Kanye West addresses the distance and disconnect within the pair’s marriage in “Hurricane,” saying his life is “always movin'”:
“It’s a lot to digest when your life always movin’./ Architectural Digest, but I needed home improvement./ Sixty-million-dollar home, never went home to it.”
“Heated by the rumors, read into it too much./ Fiendin’ for some true love, ask Kim, ‘What do you love?’/ Hard to find what the truth is, but the truth was that the truth suck./ Always seem to do stuff, but this time it was too much.”
Kanye West proceeds to rap about his relationship with Kim Kardashian in “Believe What I Say,” claiming he always did his best as a husband to make his wife happy:
“I ain’t never question what you was askin’ for./ I gave you every single thing you was askin’ for./ I don’t understand how anybody could ask for more.”
He continues by suggesting that someone has been “passin’ notes” and sharing “family secrets”:
“I be goin’ through things I had to wrote./ Celebrity drama that only Brad’ll know./ Too many family secrets, somebody passin’ notes.”
