Kanye West New Slaves Lyrics

[Verse 1]
My Momma was raised in an era when,
Clean water was only served to the fairer skin.
Doing clothes you would've thought I had help
But they weren't satisfied unless I picked the cotton myself.
You see its broke nigga racism
That's that don't touch anything in the store
And this rich nigga racism
That's that come in please buy more
What you want a billi, fur coat and diamond chain?
All you blacks want all the same things
Used to only be niggas now everybody play me
Spending everything on Alexander Wang
New Slaves

[Hook x2]
You see it's leaders and it's followers
But I'd rather be a **** than a swallower

[Verse 2]
I through these Maybach keys
I wear my heart on my sleeve
I know that we the new slaves
I see the blood on the leaves
I see the blood on the leaves
I see the blood on the leaves
I know that we the new slaves
I see the blood on the leaves
They throwing hate at me
Want me to stay at ease
**** you and your corporation
Y'all niggas can't control me
I know that we the new slaves
I know that we the new slaves
I'm bout to wyl' the **** out
I'm going Bobby Boucher
I know that **** ain't free
You niggas ****, ain't me
Y'all throwing contracts at me
You know that niggas can't read
Throw em some Maybach keys
**** it C'est la vie
I know that we the new slaves
Y'all niggas can't **** with me
Y'all niggas can't **** with Ye
Y'all niggas can't **** with Ye
I'll move my family out to the country
So you can't see where I stay
So go and grab the reporters
So I can smash they recorders
See they confuse us with some bull****
Like the New World Order
Meanwhile the DEA
Teamed up with the CCA
They tryna lock niggas up
They tryna make new slaves
See that's that private owned prison
Get your piece today
Prolly all in the Hamptons
Braggin' 'bout what they make
**** you and your Hampton house
I'll **** your Hampton spouse
Came on her Hampton blouse
And in her Hampton mouth
Y'all 'bout to turn **** up
I'm 'bout to tear **** down
I'm 'bout to air **** out
Now what the **** they gon' say now?
