Just when it seemed like the anticipation for another Kanye rap album couldn’t be any higher, the Chicago emcee took a complete 180 and put out 808s & Heartbreak. Coating his voice with autotone and singing for almost the entirety of the album, it was a sound from Kanye that the world had not heard before. Kanye, who rarely hides his emotions in his music, wore his heart on his sleeve for the duration of 808s. The target of the majority of his sorrowful soliloquies? The fairer sex.
Here are the lyrics to Kanye West's 808s & Heartbreak.
