[Music Video – Intro]
Last October Grammy-nominated producer KANYE WEST was in a nearly fatal car accident. His jaw was fractured in nearly three places. Two weeks later he recorded this song with his mouth still wired shut… so the world could feel his pain!
Yo, Gee, they can’t stop me from rappin’, can they?
Can they, Hop?
[Chorus: Chaka Khan]
Through the fire, to the limit, to the wall
For a chance to be with you, I’d gladly risk it all
Through the fire, through whatever, come what may
For a chance at loving you, I’d take it all the way
Right down to the wire, even through the fire
I spit it through the wire, man
There’s too much stuff on my heart right now, man
I’d gladly risk it all right now
It’s a life-or-death situation, man
Y’all, y’all don’t really understand how I feel right now, man
It’s your boy, Kanye to the…
Chi-Town, what’s goin’ on?
Uh-huh, yeah, yeah
I drink a Boost for breakfast, an Ensure for dessert
Somebody ordered pancakes, I just sip the sizzurp
That right there could drive a sane man berserk
Not to worry, Mr. H-to-the-Izzo’s back to wizzerk
How do you console my mom or give her light support
Tellin’ her her son’s on life support?
And just imagine how my girl feel
On the plane scared as hell that her guy look like Emmett Till
She was with me before the deal, she’d been tryna be mine
She a Delta, so she’d been throwin’ that Dynasty sign
No use in me tryna be lyin’, I been tryna be signed
Tryin’ to be a millionaire, how I used two lifelines
In the same hospital where Biggie Smalls died
The doctor said I had blood clots, but I ain’t Jamaican, man
Story on MTV and I ain’t tryna make a band
I swear, this right here, history in the makin’, man
