Kanye West “Hurricane” Lyrics Meaning and Song Review
Lil Baby opens his verse by mentioning that he had to clean up his act to receive blessings from the heavens above. “Walking on a bridge” also refers to passing from one position to another or changing one’s position. In this case, Lil Baby talks about the change in his appreciation and devotion to God.
Sipping till my stomach hurts, this month I lost three friends
But life on the streets never gets easier. Lil Baby references how racial injustices have moved beyond the justice system. It’s like he loses friends around him every day.
Still remember when I only had three bands
Now I’m the one everyone calls ’cause I got pants deep
Lil Baby remembers when he only had $3,000 under his belt. Now he’s sitting on millions of dollars. Kanye West himself has praised Lil Baby as his favorite rapper in the game right now. In 2021, Lil Baby is expected to have a net worth of around $4 million.
In the second verse of “Hurricane,” Kanye West jumps on the beat. He begins the verse by talking about the blessings he has received from God. He praises God for all the successes he has had so far in life. However, he is not insensitive to the looks of the devil. He could attribute his recent divorce from his wife Kim Kardashian to the influence of the devil.
I dropped out of school, but I’m the one at Yale
Kanye West dropped out of school by choice to pursue a career in music. Although he didn’t attend a major college like Yale, he used his talents to become one of hip-hop’s most iconic personalities. The end goal in life is to leave your legacy behind, the world being a little better than when you entered it. You don’t necessarily need to be attending an Ivy League university to do this. “Yale” also sounds like “howl,” which may refer to Kanye’s impact on the music industry.
However, Kanye West knows he’s not immune to the looks of the devil.
I made the best tracks and I still went off the rails
I had to go down, down, down
Kanye has worked miracles in his musical career. However, no amount of success can make you infallible in life. Often it’s the opposite: the more success there is, the greater the risk of losing the thread.
Kanye continues to sing about the ups and downs of his life, whether factual or imagined. One thing that’s obvious from the lyrics is that Kanye may have foreseen how his family life was going downhill over the years.
A sixty million dollar house, I’ve never been there
Kanye West knows none of the wealth in the world really matters if he can’t hold on to his family. He calls himself a “loser” for this fact, but he’s not even lazy. He is the busiest loser in the game of life.
The rapper seems to be putting himself down saying he always knew he couldn’t maintain that precious balance between work and family. He always knew that the truth would suck to become a reality.
Kanye West closes his verse by adding a footnote that everyone is so judgmental. Kanye could be the ambassador to talk about being judged for everything he does. Throughout his life, outside of music, he has been talked about, and not for good reasons. The world would be a much nicer place if people had less hate to spread.
