“[My lyrics] are already studied with a magnifying glass,” West said in an interview with rickeysmileymorningshow.com. “I don’t think there’s a person who dissects their lyrics more than me.
“This is a mission that I’m on,” West continued. “I was on ‘Ellen,’ and she was like ‘It’s cursin’ here.’ I think it’s more profane to have an album with no profanity that’s not talkin’ about nothin’ than to be as profound with profanity.”
West said that his comment regarding the matter was impressive.
“I mean, it was cold because it was an alliteration also,” West says. “The p-r-o and then the f and everything. It was too cold. Too fresh.”
An alliteration is “the use of words that begin with the same sound near one another,” as per merriam-webster.com.
Kanye West appeared on “Ellen” earlier this year and premiered “Bound 2,” a selection off Yeezus, on the television talk show. Yeezus was a runner-up for HipHopDX’s Album Of The Year, ending behind Run The Jewels’ self-titled debut album.
