One of the more interesting things to emerge from Frank Ocean's prolific weekend was a poem penned by Kanye West about McDonald's and included in the singer's highly-sought after zine. Within the glossy pages is a full-on multi-page spread depicting Kanye rolling through a McD's drive thru in his all black everything sports car. On the ordering window, there was a poem titled McDonalds Man about an array of things from their fast food restaurant's menu.
One of the weirdest things about this entire thing is the revelation that Iggy Azalea actually had the scoop on West's paean to McDonald's all the way back in 2013. In an interview with The Guardian, Azalea dropped a hint that she heard the poem in spoken word form when she rolled through his house. "He was playing me his 'scriptures,' as he calls his spoken-word interludes," she remembered. "There was one about McDonald's: 'Those fries/ Those fries/ I have them in my eyes/ That smooth apple pie…' I love it. What is the line between art and ignorance?"
