    Personally I'd swap the CSA for the CIS, but then, the only reason I know they're a thing is because of Kobayashi's Star Wars: Insurrection.

    Saw this on r/Kanye... not sure how much I agree, I feel like tLoP and Ye should be switched

    I can get behind this 100%, the only two good albums are in the bottom left

    edit: to be fair graduation is good too I guess, it has certainly grown on me in the, what, ten years since it came out? But at the time I felt it was a big step down from his first two.

    I don't know if I agree with Yeezus in Auth-Left either.

    Like Black Skinhead and New Slaves are pretty anti-authoritarian.

    I like pretty much all of Kanye’s discography and particularly his latter half. But I don’t know the album covers so I dont know what’s where.

    Ah, I was wondering about that one. Is that some kind of alternate album artwork? This is the cover I'm familiar with:

    Yeah, it's got a bunch of alternate covers (the official cover is the one on the top left):

    NSFW: One of the covers shows a man drinking wine straight out the bottle, and we can't have that.
    Spoiler :


    Edit: incidentally, it's enormously ironic that the alternate cover for the album artwork they chose to represent MBDTF as auth-right is the one portraying Kanye as a decapitated king.

    Before you ask me to go get a job today,
    can I at least get a raise on the minimum wage?
    And I know the government administer AIDS
    So I guess we just pray like the minister say
    Allahu akbar, throw em some hot cars
    The things we seen on the screen's not ours
    but these n***as from the hood so these dreams mad far
    Where I'm from the dope boys is the rock stars
    but they can't cop cars without seein cop cars
    I guess they want us all behind bars

    Probably the most explicitly anti-capitalist song Kanye's ever released:

    Spoiler :
    My mama was raised in the era when
    Clean water was only served to the fairer skin
    Doin' clothes, you would thought I had help
    But they wasn't satisfied unless I picked the cotton myself.

    You see it's broke [n-word] racism
    That's that "Don't touch anything in the store"
    And it's rich [n-word] racism
    That's that "Come in, please buy more"
    "What you want, a Bentley? Fur coat? A diamond chain?
    All you blacks want all the same things"
    Used to be only [n-word]s, now everybody playin'
    Spendin' everything on Alexander Wang
    New slaves

    [...]

    They throwin' hate at me
    Want me to stay at ease
    F- you and your corporation
    Y'all n-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 f- out
    I'm goin' Bobby Boucher
    I know that p- ain't free
    You n- p-, ain't me
    Y'all throwin' contract at me
    You know that n- can't read
    Throw on some Maybach keys
    F- it, c'est la vie
    I know that we the new slaves

    [...]

    See, they'll confuse us with some bulls-
    Like the New World Order
    Meanwhile the DEA
    Teamed up with the CCA
    They tryna lock n- up
    They tryna make new slaves
    See, that's that privately owned prison
    Get your piece today
    They prolly all in the Hamptons
    Braggin' 'bout what they made
    F- you and your Hampton house
    I'll f- your Hampton spouse
    [SEXUALLY EXPLICIT LINE REDACTED]
    [SEXUALLY EXPLICIT LINE REDACTED]
    Y'all 'bout to turn s- up
    I'm 'bout to tear s- down
    I'm 'bout to air s- out
    Now what the f- they gon' say now?


    And then there's this bit from the outro:

    Egyszer a Nap úgy elfáradt
    Elaludt mély zöld tó ölén
    Az embereknek fájt a sötét
    Ö megsajnált, eljött közénk

    Which apparently translates to:

    One day the sun, too tired to shine
    Slept in the deep, green somber lake
    And in the darkness, the world did ail
    Until she came, for all our sake.
