Through the wire

[Produced by Kanye West]

[Music Video – Intro]
Last October, Grammy-nominated producer KANYE WEST was involved in a near-fatal car accident. His jaw was fractured in almost three places. Two weeks later, he recorded this song with his mouth still closed…so the world could feel his pain!

[Intro]
Yo, Gee, they can’t stop me rapping, can they?
Can they, Hop?

[Chorus: Chaka Khan]
Through the fire, to the limit, to the wall
For a chance to be with you, I’d gladly risk it all
Through the fire, through whatever, come what may
For a chance to love you, I’d take it all the way
To the wire, even through the fire

[Over Chorus]
I spit it through the wire, man
There’s too much on my heart right now, man
I’d be happy to risk it all now
It’s a life or death situation, man
You, you don’t really understand how I feel right now, man
It’s your boy, Kanye at the…
Chi-Town, what’s going on?
Uh-huh, yeah, yeah

[Verse 1]
I drink a Boost for breakfast, an Ensure for dessert
Someone ordered pancakes, I’m just sippin’ the sizzurp
That right could drive a sane man crazy

Don’t worry, Mr. H-to-the-Izzo is back to wizzerk
How do you comfort my mother or give her some light support
Tell him that his son is on life support?

And just imagine how my girl feels
On the plane scared her man looks like Emmett Till

She was with me before the deal, she tried to be mine
She’s Delta, so she threw that Dynasty sign
No use for me to try to lie, I tried to be signed
I’m tryna be a millionaire, how I used two lifelines
In the same hospital where Biggie Smalls died
The doctor said I had blood clots, but I’m not Jamaican, man
History on MTV and I ain’t tryna make a band
I swear it’s here, history is being made, man

[Chorus: Chaka Khan]
Through the fire, to the limit, to the wall
For a chance to be with you, I’d gladly risk it all
Through the fire, through whatever, come what may
For a chance to love you, I’d take it all the way
To the wire, even through the fire

[Over Chorus]
I really apologize for everything right now
If it ain’t clear at all, man

They shut my mouth
For like… I don’t know, the doctor said like six weeks
You know he had, I had reconstructive surgery on my jaw
I looked in the mirror
And half my jaw was in the back of my mouth, man
i couldn’t believe it
But I’m still here for you right now, man
That’s what I have to say here, man
Yeah, ride me, yeah, uh

[Verse 2]
What if someone from Chi who was sick had a deal
On the hottest rap label?

But he wasn’t talking about coke and birds
It was more like speech, except he actually wrote it down?

And he explained the story of how black people came from fame
And what we have to do in the game
Right man, wrong night, right place, wrong time
In the blink of an eye his whole life changed
If you could feel what my face felt
You would know how Mase felt (Mason Betha!)
Thank God I’m not too cool for the seatbelt

I swear to god, driver two wanna sue
Got a lawyer on the case, to guard what’s in my safe

My homies couldn’t tell if I…
I looked like Tom Cruise in vanilla sky, it was televised
There was an accident like GEICO
They thought I was burned like Pepsi Michael
Gotta have an angel, ’cause look how death missed his ass
Unbreakable, what, you thought they’d call me Mr. Glass?
Look at my life like the ghost of Christmas past
Toys “R” Us where I used to spend that Christmas money
And I still don’t wanna grow up, I’m a grown child
I swear I should be locked up for the stupid shit I did

But I’m a champion, so I turned tragedy into triumph
Make music that’s fire, spit my soul through the wire
[Chorus: Chaka Khan]
Through the fire, to the limit, to the wall
For a chance to be with you, I’d gladly risk it all
Through the fire, through whatever, come what may
For a chance to love you, I’d take it all the way
To the wire, even through the fire

[Over Chorus]
Do you know what I’m saying?
When the doctor told me I had, uh
That I was gonna have to have a plaque in my chin

I said, “Dawg, don’t you realize I’m never gonna get on a plane now?”
“It’s bad enough having all that jewelry!”
You can’t be serious, man
