What in the fuck was that Kanye
I told you to do some shit for the kids
You can give me your motherfucking graduation ticket right now
You will not walk across that stage, you won't slide across that stage
A motherfucker can't pull you across that stage Kanye
Who told you see, I told you to do something up lifting
I'm trying to get you out here with these white people and this how you gone do me
You know what us a nigga
And I don't mean that in no nice way
Had little kids sing about the shit, the jokes on you
You throw your mother hands in the air, and wave good-bye to everybody
Cause you getting the fuck out of this campus
Mother what you gone do now

I'm no longer confused but don't tell anybody
I'm about to break the rules but don't tell anybody
I got something better than school but don't tell anybody
My momma would kill me but don't anybody
She wants me to get a good ass job just like everybody
She ain't walked in my shoes I'm just not everybody

    General CommentDamn, not too many people know about the beat at the end of Bernie Mac's ranting. One of Kanye's best beats. I think it's John Legend doing vocals and Miri Bin-Ari on the violin. Listen to this skit!

    General CommentThis and the previous track "We Don't Care" remind me of the book by Ralph Ellison, "Invisible Man." In the book, the hero is supposed to take this white man on a drive and just show him around the college campus, but he ends up bringing him by the old slave quarters and the rich white man sees some of what the deep south is really like. The hero gets expelled from his college. I don't know, it just reminds me of the book, how he's going, look here's what it's really like, and then he gets expelled.
