Kanye West decided to take to Twitter and declare the second verse of his new song, “New Slaves,” to be the greatest verse in the history of rap music.
I open the debate… The 2nd verse of New Slaves is the best rap verse of all time….meaning … OF ALL TIME IN THE HISTORY OF RAP MUSIC, PERIOD

West is known for having a gigantic ego. It wasn’t that long ago he interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the VMAs.
So how did people respond to Kanye’s latest claim?
Dawg. Kanye can’t talk about new slaves and then sell a plain white T for $130. 😑

Say what you want, @kanyewest 2nd verse of New Slaves is genius. Even more is Kanye going out and acting out a lyric to prove his point.
