Kanye West - No More Parties In LA ft. Kendrick Lamar cover art

Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar unveiled the rest of the “No More Parties In LA” SWISH song today (January 18, 2016), and it’s more serious than I thought it’d be. I love the idea but wow I was not expecting such a downer. With just the hook and the sample that we got on the tail end of “Real Friends,” this sounded like it’d be more of a kickback record. Let the song run past the first part though, and you’ll see it’s more aggressive. These two artists speak to the Los Angeles, California way of life in a different way.

Kendrick raps:

“A country girl enough Hollywood
Mama used to cook red beans and rice, now it’s Denny’s 4 in the morning, spoil your appetite,
Liquor pouring and liquor spoiling your sexual erection, smoke in every direction, middle finger pedestrians,
R&B singers and lesbians, rappers and managers, music and not full cameras, this shit unanimous for you,
It’s damaging for you I think, that pussy should only be holding exclusive rights to me”

K Dot warns us of the grandeur of Hollywood and the homogeneous effect it has on those who enter it – especially women. “Instagram is the best way to sell some pussy,” the LA area rapper finishes his verse. Kanye West has a more paranoid nature, as he’s from Chicago. As a man nearing 40, he also has a different set of circumstances than Kendrick – with a wife and kids. “Whole family getting money, thank god for E!” he says. Yeezy has been doing a lot of reality TV and shoe designing, so he’s on a different flow, but I can hear him trying to be honest in this for his family.

A few more from Kanye West:

“Some days I’m in my Yeezy’s, some days I’m in my Vans, if I knew y’all made plans, I wouldn’t of popped the Xans
I know some fans thought that I wouldn’t rap like this again, but the writer’s block is over, emcee’s cancel your plans
A 38-year-old 8-year-old with rich nigga problems, tell my wife that I had the road, so I don’t ever drive her
It took 6 months to get the Maybach all matted-out, and my assistent crashed it soon as they backed it out”
