Ign'ant Kanye vs. Conscious Kanye

"I never understood planned parenthood/Cause I never met nobody that planned to be a parent in the hood."

Song: "The Joy" (2011)
Album: Watch the Throne
Conscious Or Ign'ant?: Conscious

Planned Parenthood is widely considered one of the great public services in the United States, but Kanye-in full social satirist mode-makes a sharp point. How does a place called Planned Parenthood appeal to young people in places where nothing is planned? It's just another example of the void between the left's best intentions and the reality of inner-city life. It is within those voids that Kanye thrives.
