LISTEN: Kanye Raps About Anna Wintour & Kim Kardashian On ‘Theraflu’

Kanye West just dropped his latest track “Theraflu”, and there are quite a few fashion references we need to discuss.

Let’s just get down to business, okay? Yeezy starts off with a generic fur shouout:

Can’t a young n***a get money anymore?
Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor
Can I have a bad bitch without no flaws?
Come to meet me without no drawers?

Then he brings out the big guns, rapping about DINNER WITH ANNA WINTOUR. The racing with Anja Rubik bit refers to the go-karts at his Paris Fashion Week afterparty, and Project Runway is obviously a nod to his designer ambitions:

Dinner with Anna Wintour, racin’ with Anja Rubik
I told you maf*ckers it was more than the music
In the projects one day to Project Runway,
We done heard all that loud-ass talkin’, we used to it.

Remember those $6,000 shoes he made with Giuseppe Zanotti? They’re here too:

We flyer than the parakeet, floatin’ with no parachute
$6,000 pair of shoes, we made it to the Paris news!
Don’t talk about style, ‘cause I embarrass you,
Shut the f*ck up when you talk to me ‘fore I embarrass you.

And this isn’t fashion-related, but ‘Ye also admits to falling in love with Kim Kardashian when she started dating Kris Humphries. UM. He also says she’s lucky he didn’t get his BFF Jay-Z to kick him off the Nets. So, there’s that:

And I’ll admit I fell in love with Kim,
’Round the same time she fell in love with him.
Well that’s cool, baby girl, do your thing,
Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.
