Oh my gosh, wouldn’t it be neat if you could decide every single thing about your kid before you even had one? Maybe? I can’t decide if it would be neat or boring or creepy, but for Kanye‘s sake, I’m going to lean toward neat for now.
See, Kanye, way before he impregnated Kim Kardashian, already planned out what his son was going to be like, and he documented it all in a song called “New Day.” The song was one of his collaborations with Jay-Z on Watch the Throne, and one of his verses went a little something like this:
And I’ll never let my son have an ego / He’ll be nice to everyone, wherever we go / I mean I might even make him be Republican / So everybody know he love white people / And I’ll never let him leave his college girlfriend / And get caught up with the groupies in the whirlwind / And I’ll never let him ever hit the telethon / I mean even if people dyin’ and the world ends / See, I just want him to have an easy life / Not like Yeezy life, just want him to be someone people like / Don’t want him to be hated all the time, judged / Don’t be like your daddy that would never budge / And I’ll never let him ever hit a strip club / I learned the hard way, that ain’t the place to get love / And I’ll never let his mom move to LA / Knowin’ she couldn’t take the pressure now we all pray.
Well, some of this stuff is nice, at least. He says he won’t let his son have an ego, which … well, I guess it depends on Kanye’s definition of the word. Because if he thinks that he himself doesn’t have an ego either, then oh, this poor child. But the part about wanting him to have an easy life is sweet, and the part about not letting him go to strip clubs with bad intentions. And of course, the part about his mom is heartbreaking, and totally implausible now that the mother of Kanye’s child is going to be Kim Kardashian. But most of this is actually ok. Except the bit about making him be a Republican and not letting him ever do telethons. That sounds a little controlling.
Do you think Kanye’s going to be a good dad?
