Yeezy is the king of Controversy these days. Just yesterday, he somewhat-attacked a paparazzi photographer, who is now looking to press charges. A day before that occured, audio surfaced of ‘Ye ranting about Taylor Swift after the 2009 VMAs. Sometimes it seems like controversy just finds Kanye, but this time, Yeezy went looking for it, making a bold statement on his Twitter.

Kanye West tweeted that he was opening the debate, and proceeded to say his second verse on “New Slaves” off Yeezus is the best rap verse of all time– like, ever, in the history of rap.

[Verse 2]
I throw these Maybach keys
I wear my heart on the 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 throwin’ hate at me
Want me to stay at ease
Fuck you and your corporation
Y’all ni****s can’t control me
I know that we the new slaves
I know that we the new slaves
I’m ’bout to wild the fuck out
I’m going Bobby Boucher
I know that Pu$$y ain’t free
You ni****s Pu$$y, ain’t me
Y’all throwin’ contracts at me
You know that ni****s can’t read
Throw ’em some Maybach keys
Fuck it, c’est la vie
I know that we the new slaves
Y’all ni****s can’t fuck with me
Y’all ni****s can’t fuck with Ye
Y’all ni****s can’t fuck with Ye
I’ll move my family out the country
So you can’t see where I stay
So go and grab the reporters
So I can smash their recorders
See they’ll confuse us with some bullSh*t
Like the New World Order
Meanwhile the DEA
Teamed up with the CCA
They tryna lock ni****s up
They tryna make new slaves
See that’s that privately owned prison
Get your piece today
They prolly all in the Hamptons
Bragging ’bout what they made
Fuck you and your Hampton house
I’ll fuck your Hampton spouse
Came on her Hampton blouse
And in her Hampton mouth
Y’all ’bout to turn Sh*t up
I’m ’bout to tear Sh*t down
I’m ’bout to air Sh*t out
Now what the fuck they gon’ say now?

Do you agree with him? If not what’s your greatest verse of all time?

    N.gga need to sit his lil emotional azz down somewhere

    • MoorDetroitRed


      And I use to defend dude but its too much these days. Too much estrogen in his soy milk got him in touch with his bitch side.

  • K-iller (DaCorpNigga)

    That isht hit ain’t even “his” best verse ever! This nigga need to go spend a week on the south side of the Chi and get a reality check!

  • ginoBrown

    F*ck out of here with that b*llshit… “I ain’t no killer but don’t push me, revenge is the sweetest joy next 2 getting p*ssy.”-Makaveli

    • Greg4422

      +1 you went in…lol

  • Jamez

    despite what yall say bout him being egotistic, you gotta fake it to make it. i saw this interview where he heard ye talkin bout hes gonna be the greatest and jay is like “you dont even have a freakin single out” but look at him now…a living legend. personally i heard better ye verses but hey..

    • ginoBrown

      @jamez Production wise he might be a legend when it’s all said and done but went it comes 2 pure spitting I don’t think he in the legend category, if u talking about this era of rap then yea but if u ranking him against the all time greats then he just average…I give ol boy his props cause he did give the world College Dropout and Late Registration but after that all he served up was a bunch of filler.

      • Murder

        +100 kanye need to be punched in his mouth I think he’ll come back to reality

      • Playboy69

        @gino….Gradation is classic tho!…That’s year that KANYE WEST END 50 Cent run in 2007!….Kanye West is a RAP LEGEND!

        • 1luv

          The first three albums are classics. My dark twisted Fantasy put him back to his roots.

        • ginoBrown

          @playboy I think Graduation was decent, but sub-par compared 2 his first 2.

  • Truthteller

    Idk that verse was kinda beasty but naw I dont think anybody out doin Nas an Pac…

  • Realtalkin

    not even close

    • MoorDetroitRed

      That’s what she said when @B Faked asked her did she cum.

  • Nobody has the greatest verse of alltime lol. Yeezy has dropped some gems over the years tho!

    *some of the greatest verses ever*

    Andre 3000 “royal flush”
    Ceelo green “thought process”
    Notorious big “victory” 1st verse
    2Pac/makaveli “blasphemy”….entire song
    Inspectah deck/wu tang “triumph”
    Nas “heaven were a mile away”…entire song
    Jayz “public service announcement” 2nd verse
    Common “the corner” 1st verse

    And many others by rakim, krs 1, mos def, kweli, lox, and so on….

    • too_funny

      scareface – “homie and thugg niccas”

    • MalleG’z

      @B Jay Electronica “Exhibit C” may be one of the GOAT

    • @B, how you gon forget Rakim’s, I take 7 MC’s and put um in a line….and M&M’s, kids 16 with M16’s….2Pac So Many Tears is the dopest track of all times, hands down, but when he said, I ain’t a killer just don’t push, revenge is the sweetest joy next to getting pussy….killed it for ALL TIMES!

  • 828jeffe

    That man is all over the place. I just wish the brotha the best but his verse isn’t in his top 25.

  • too_funny

    Smart azz FREE MARKETING move…

    doesnt matter what we think honestly……he got ppl talking and debating his music.

    how many ppl went back and listened to this song 3 or 4 times.

  • 1luv

    I say the best verse that Kanye ever did is All falls down.

    I say fuck the police, that’s how I treat ’em We buy our way out of jail, but we can’t buy freedom We buy a lot of clothes but we don’t really need ’em Things we buy to cover up what’s inside
    ‘Cause they made us hate ou rself and love they wealth. That’s why shorty’s hollering, “Where the ballas’ at?”Drug dealer buy Jordans, crackhead buy crack. And a white man get paid off of all a dat


    • MoorDetroitRed

      Yea that’s Mr West you quoting there not this new nigga


    Project Pat. Greatest rapper of all time! Fuck Kanye

  • LD

    Talking bout corporations…this fool selling tshirts and scarves for over 100 bucks….

    • Big ALbert


      Kanye is such a hypocrite. I stopped fufcin with his music after Late Registration.

  • H

    Niggas missing the point

  • Afrika

    His “Royal freshness of the kingdom of dopeness” , his lyrics definately contradicts his hustle.
