Kanye West Declares ‘New Slaves’ Best Rap Verse of All Time

Kanye West

Kanye West knows how to get people talking. After his run-in with a paparazzo on Friday, the G.O.O.D. Music mogul has declared his verse on “New Slaves” to be the greatest in the history of rap.

He took to Twitter on Saturday to make the bold statement. “I open the debate… The 2nd verse of New Slaves is the best rap verse of all time….meaning … OF ALL TIME IN THE HISTORY OF RAP MUSIC, PERIOD,” tweeted ‘Ye.

His followers flooded Twitter with their responses, most in disagreement. Some called him downright crazy for making the assertion, while others shared their favorite Kanye verse.

Even some of his peers weighed in including the outspoken Azealia Banks, who claimed her song was better. “YUNG RAPUNXEL >>>>,” tweeted the Harlem rapper.

Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt also chimed in with his thoughts. “my mans kanye is fucking wild i dont agree but i fully back him and his mind,” he said.

While he reserved his opinion, Rico Love admired ‘Ye for his dedication to his art. “Kanye only cares about being the greatest. Whether u agree w/the things he says or not u have to respect his passion. I Do #TTLO,” tweeted the producer.

Kanye’s album Yeezus is currently No. 6 on the Billboard 200, selling 29,000 copies last week.

    Kanye knows that is not his best verse, but he also knows that every blog will post the lyrics of New Slaves and they directly address the incident yesterday. You people don’t even see Kanye coming, he just fly right over your heads. SMDH!!!!! Genius!!!! People were blowing up google looking for the lyrics, he doesn’t need to speak or do 1 interview, he gets his message out without having to kiss anyones a**.

    @Mel, I agree with this. I don’t think kanye is as far out as people think. All of this seems like an unorthodox way of staying in the public eye. Obviously by impregnating Kim and going at the paparazzi (on multiple occasions sporting his new A.P.C collab, marketed towards the “hipsters” with disposable income) he asked for this life/knows what hes doing. And for this, it seems like a hyperbole; like saying “we’ve been friends forever,” instead of “for a long time”. It might just be his way of explaining a dope verse, and a way get people talking (apparently it worked). Remember, any publicity is good publicity.

    BEST of all time I do agree. All we care about now is materialistic items and obtaining more items rather than what actually matters. One united world, we can all make changes for the future but we choose to be selfish and spend within ourselves….. We spend bread on items that will be thrown away in a year but we cherish those items like they were heaven sent…smh. NEW Slaves

    @James, and yet Kanye has the audacity to charge over $100 for a plain white tee for his APC line. He is the biggest walking contradiction in the history of mankind.

    @Ant, And Yet it’s Kanye’s clothing line last time I checked. He has every right to charge whatever amount he wants for HIS CLOTHING LINE. You probably can’t afford it either way so it doesn’t really matter. Stop checking for Kanye if you dislike Kanye, what sense does that make? Go get a better job broke bitch.

    @Bitches In Paris, your brain is full of Kanye’s semen that you can’t think or reason properly. He contradicts himself, if he really believes what he raps he will make a nice clothing line with accessible prices. True what you said about “he can charge whatever he wants because is his clothing line”, yet he decide to charge prices for materialistic people.

    @Trey, what is the correlation? Did i miss something? Paparazzi ask him demeaning insult questions about his personal life, not his art

    I open a debate… Yeezus is Kanye’s worst album of all time… meaning … OF ALL TIME SINCE HIS DEBUT, PERIOD.

    @Miszi, Before any hate comments, it’s just my personal opinion and a joke. I love his music prior to this album.

    Shurs Reply:

    @Miszi, i think u need to cop an understanding of the word art and then the process itself. That album was a polarizing one. Think b4 u speak. I respect Jay,Nas,Pac,Big bt Kanye is a genius.

    It took like 12 people to write the song…. And it still doesnt even measure up to the best rap verse of all time, even in the last month. This guys ego is bigger than his talent now and his self belief is going to be his biggest enermy in his career now!
