Kanye West – Jesus Lord, Pt. 2 | Lyrics Meaning Explained

0

“Lord Jesus, Pt. 2” is the twenty-seventh and final track from Kanye West’s 2021 album “DONDA”. It is the second part of the seventeenth track from the album of the same title. However, the second part contains additional verses from Sheek Louch, Jadakiss, and Styles P, bringing the song to a massive 5-verse hymn spanning 11 minutes and 30 seconds.

‘Donda’ is Kanye West’s tenth studio album released on August 29, 2021, having been repeatedly teased and delayed. Kanye West hosted two evenings of listening to the album at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta before the album’s release, and the third in Chicago. This song was played the second time you listen to it.

Overall, the theme of “Jesus Lord” is to praise Jesus and seek his blessings in all of the singers’ life endeavors. However, more complex stories intertwine on the subject of injustices in society. The three new verses also address the same topics as well as grievances of their personal losses.

Kanye West “Jesus Lord, Pt. 2” Lyrics Meaning & Song Review

Please refer to the original article on the first part of “Jesus Lord” for the analysis of the first two verses by Kanye West and Jay Electronica, which are repeated here.

Verse 3

Sheek Louch begins his verse by shouting out his late mother, who died of cancer when Sheek was 38. His only solace is the fact that he knows she is with Lord right now.

Then he moves on to a theme surrounding his success in the rap game and how a lot of temporary things have happened in his life as a result of that success. He’s got a whole lot of money that couldn’t buy his mother’s longevity. Much more money now who can not buy real friends.

If I didn’t rap the calls would stop (Haha)
You’re not really happy for me, you’re crazy that I pop (Jesus)

Sheek tackles a more religious theme by saying that he is always on Jesus’ side. He knows the devil comes in so many different forms, and the devil always wants to stop the Lord. However, faith is the key to fighting the devil.

Finally, he says he started from scratch and ended up at the top with his grind in the music game. He also attributes much of his success to the blessings of the Lord. He wants all listeners to know that there are better ways to survive than to kill each other on the streets.

Verse 4

In the fourth verse, Jadakiss sings about how he has been influenced by Jesus throughout his life and career. He admits that there are times the devil got hold of him and he gave up his faith. But he always comes back to the right path. One could only hope that their good days outweigh the bad days. No one will get smooth sails every day of their life.

In the rest of his verse, Jadakiss explains that he doesn’t want to bother with all the negativity that comes into his life. He understands that whatever he does, there will be people who will come to his jugular, literally and metaphorically. Musically, he has the firepower to shoot his opponents straight into the mouth so they can’t spit again, thus ending their careers. However, in all other scenarios, it remains out of the conflict. He has his friend by his side to comfort him, and that friend is the Lord.

Jadakiss also seems to deduce that his arrival in the music industry and his life was mostly solo.

There’s no ‘i’ in ‘team’, it’s an ‘i’ in ‘win’ (Lord; win)
They got an eye on me, got an eye on him (‘Sup)

It could also mean that YOU have to work for YOUR success. There is no one else who will do the work for you.

Verse 5

In the fifth and final verse on “Jesus Lord, Pt. 2,” Styles P explains how tired he is of seeing his friends and family die around him. He knows that Heaven is now a Black Heaven by the number of people who have died in vain. Styles P hints that his days might be numbered too, so he asks his friends above to keep his chariot ready to escort him to the pearly gates.

This is what my mom says
And before you go to war, know that it’s an honor to pray

Styles P says there is no honor in killing each other in the streets in the name of “stampede.” They kill their fellow human beings by being victimized by the systems that put them in this position. But that’s not the way to break the wheel. Perhaps finding our own straight path is a good approach to this problem.

Styles P also seems to show us the right way to approach faith in Jesus Christ. He says he started thanking Lord after his efforts paid off. In contrast, many people pray for wealth before showing faith and are frustrated when they don’t get their luxury cars from Jesus Christ. This is not how it works.
