Kanye West - Hell of a Life

Kanye west verse

Pop queens, how many topless, black foxes,
Did I have under my bealt, like boxers, not to brag but if it add up, 1, 2 it's mad nuts,
Dame you mad nuts,
How you gon call out all these, these niggas know a damn what they gon call me, the only dream of the ghetto prom queen,
Was to make it to the screen, baby get seen,
Maybe get chose by a nigga from a team,

Head so good he don't ask for a preen,
Now ask yourself this question,
Would you be jay z if he wasn't C. E, would you be with F A B O if he drove with ne-Yo, would you drive with ne-Yo if he was in G. O,
Oh why the hell you think these niggas coming at me for, since they all fallin my poem, I take a trio

With the thematic of "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" centered around pros and cons of fame, “Hell of a Life” is the culminating ode to the corrupt use of it to have a one-night stay with a porn star. A porn actress also represents the equivalent to a musical superstar in terms of visibility and openness to the public. While talking about the making of "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" with Complex, Nicki Minaj said Kanye really likes watching porn: "I go to the studio and he has nothing but pictures of naked women on his computer that he’d invite me to look at. They were really artsy pictures, but you know he loves nudity, so it was a complete shock to me, ‘cause I thought I had him all figured out, but I didn’t. He was watching porn when we were in the studio—no shame in his game." An interesting aspect of this song is that despite the title, you never once hear Kanye say the “f” in “Life”, making it sound like “Hell of a Lie” for the entirety of the song. This could mean that Kanye deems the famous lifestyle as a lie to those who aren’t in it and are dreaming of it. The missing “f” sound is prominent in the meaning of these lines: "I think I fell in love with a pornstar And got married in the bathroom Honeymoon on the dance floor And got divorced by the end of the night That’s one hell of a life" This tells us his fantasies with a pornstar were all an illusion.
