Mere hours ago, Kanye West unveiled a new tune with Atlanta OG T.I., titled “Ye VS. The People.” The track first came to light on Los Angeles radio station Power 106, and is available in low quality audio rips around the web.

On the new track, West gets political by stating “I never ever stop fighting for the people/ Actually wearing the hat is showing people that we’re equal" as T.I. responds "You gotta see the vantage point of the people / What makes you feel equal makes them feel evil."

Genius has wasted no time in breaking down some of the key lyrics in the song, which you can read transcribed below. According to the site, West references a tweet from Chance, the Rapper when he rhymes "All Blacks gotta be Democrats, man, we ain't made it off the plantation." Later, West attempts to clear the air on his surprising choice to wear a "Make American Great Again" cap by saying "Make America Great Again had a negative perception / I took it, wore it, rocked it, gave it a new direction."

Check out the lyrics in full below.

Oh, oh Oh, oh Oh, oh Oh, oh I had for us Turned my dreams into dust I watch a phone that, I had for us Turned my dreams into dust

[Verse: Kanye West & T.I.] I know Obama was Heaven-sent But ever since Trump won, it proved that I could be President Yeah you can, at what cost though? Don't that go against the teachings that Ye taught for? Yo T.I.P., I hear your side and everybody talk though But ain't goin' against the grain everything I fought for? Prolly so, Ye, but where you tryna go with this? It's some shit you just don't align with and don't go against You just readin' the headlines, you don't see the fine print You on some choosin'-side shit, I'm on some unified shit It's bigger than your selfish agenda If your election ain't gon' stop police from murderin' niggas Bruh, I never ever stopped fightin' for the people Actually wearin' the hat'll show people that we equal You gotta see the vantage point of the people What makes you feel equal makes them feel evil See that's the problem with this damn nation All Blacks gotta be Democrats, man, we ain't made it off the plantation Fuck what you choose as your political party You representin' dudes who seem crude and cold-hearted With blatant disregard for the people who put you in position Don't you feel an obligation to them? I feel an obligation to show people new ideas And if you wanna hear 'em, here go two right here Make America Great Again had a negative perception I took it, wore it, rocked it, gave it a new direction Added empathy, care and love and affection And y'all simply questionin' my methods What you willin' to lose for the point to be proved? This shit is stubborn, selfish, bullheaded, even for you You wore a dusty ass hat to represent the same views As white supremacy, man, we expect better from you All them times you sounded crazy, we defended you, homie Not just to be let down when we depend on you, homie That's why it's important to know what direction you're goin' now 'Cause everything that you built can be destroyed and torn down You think I ain't concerned about how I affect the past? I mean, that hat stayed in my closet about a year and a half Then one day I was like, "Fuck it, I'ma do me" I was in the sunken place and then I found the new me Not worried 'bout some image that I gotta keep up Lot of people agree with me, but they're too scared to speak up The greater good of the people is first Have you considered all the damage and the people you hurt? You had a bad idea, and you're makin' it worse Shit's just as bad as Catholic preachers rapin' in church Y'all been leadin' with hate, see I just approach it different Like a gang truce, the first Blood to shake the Crip's hand I know everybody emotional Is it better if I rap about crack? Huh? 'Cause it's cultural? Or how about I'ma shoot you, or fuck your bitch? Or how about all this Gucci, 'cause I'm fuckin' rich You'll deal with God for the lack of respect Startin' to make it seem like Donnie cut you a check Now you toyin' with hot lava, better be careful with that What's it mean to gain the world if you ain't standin' for shit? Okay I gotta say it, Ye, you sound high as a bitch Yeah, genocide and slavery, we should just try and forget All that free thought shit, find a better defense But if Ye's just stuck in his way, he can leave it at that Fuck it
