OK fair enough, the streets is flarin’ up;
‘Cause they want talk, or I don’t wear enough;
Baggy clothes, Reeboks’, or adidas;
Can I add, that he do spaz out at his shows;

Part of the persona of Kanye West is that he will tell you exactly what he thinks of himself. So for Everything I Am, it is an interesting flip to hear Mr. West have a whole song where he downplays himself as well as gets into a list of his personal flaws. Now in a strong partnership with the brand, when Kanye name-dropped the Stripes on this track it was to make comparison to how he lacked things, like fresh adidas, when compared to other rappers. My how things have changed.
