On Sight, Yeezus (3/13)

List item

I know she likes chocolate men
She got more niggas off than Cochran

This song is littered with sharp-witted, searing insights but this particular couplet is in reference to Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian and more pertinently aimed at her white ex-husband Kris Humphreys. Kanye makes the fairly trite point that she seems to be more enamoured with black men at this juncture of Kim K’s well-documented life. He goes on to reference lawyer Ray Cochran, famed for getting many black men acquitted, most notably Oj Simpson. Kanye makes the double entendre between his wife ‘getting them off’ in a sexual manner and Cochran doing so in a legal sense. Brutal, but funny.
