[Intro: Kanye West & Angie Martinez]
Wildin’ on television
You could
Still see a nigga tell the vision
Pimpin’ (Pimpin’)
Boy, these boys, pimpin’
These boys, boys
Pop was here last week
He was talkin’ about Brooklyn and the place Brooklyn was at
How they were really like, thrivin’ like right now

He was, you know, he was tryna, pull people up with him
He wasn’t even into where he was about to be
He just was trying to; he was trying to get there

I mean, he was on his, he was well on his way
Um, it’s just tragic, twenty yеars old, rest in peace
God blеss Pop Smoke

[Chorus: Pop Smoke]
Look, nigga, we made it (Grr, woo, bah)
Nigga, we made it, we made it (Woo)
Nigga, we made it (Woo)
Thank God that I made it (Grrt, bah)
Nigga, we made it, we made it (Woo)
Look, momma, I made it (Grrt)
This song marks the first time Pop Smoke has appeared alongside both Kanye and Pusha T, although it’s worth noting that Pusha was featured on the original version of “Paranoia” released July 20, 2020 as part of Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon’s deluxe edition. He requested his verse be removed from the official release after a dispute arose between himself and Young Thug regarding lines on the track supposedly dissing Drake.Kanye West and Pusha T have collaborated countless times throughout both of their careers. Their notable appearances together include Ye’s “Mercy” released in 2012, Pusha’s “What Would Meek Do?” in 2018 and “Runaway,” a song which released in 2010 off Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.Kanye ain’t do shit lmfaoWHAT DID KANYE DO😭😭bro Pop Smoke’s mom said more then ye 😭😭kanye pulled a rick ross monster verse. 😭kanye knows what the fuck he’s doing. he knows we’re fucking hungry and teasing usOn “Tell the Vision,” the late Pop Smoke, along with the veteran rappers Kanye West and Pusha T, rap about how they made it to the top and how their lifestyle has changed due to them becoming popular.The track was first teased by featured artist Kanye West on the original tracklist for Kanye’s tenth—possibly scrapped—studio album, DONDA: WITH CHILD. It was supposed to be the album’s thirteenth track, as seen in a now deleted tweet, made almost a year before this album dropped.Pop Smoke’s vocals were taken from his unreleased song “We Made It” featuring Calboy.Kanye never says nigga in his newer songs considering him getting more religious in between working on his scrapped album Yandhi and 2019 album JESUS IS KING, as well as when he censored DaBaby’s verse on the remix for Nah Nah Nah, and scrapping the late XXXTENTACION’s verse on Everything We Need for being too vulgar. He had also started a heavily religious gospel group, the Sunday Service Choir.This could possibly lead to Kanye’s return to more careless raps as seen in Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1,Now, if I fuck this model
And she just bleached her asshole
And I get bleach on my T-shirt
I’ma feel like an assholeThis segment of the song was taken from New York radio personality, Angie Martinez’s show “The Angie Martinez Show” where on February 18, 2020, the day of Pop Smoke’s death, they adiscussed about his sudden death and how only a week prior, on February 7, Pop Smoke appeared on the show for an interview.During the aforementioned interview, they spoke about Pop’s project “Meet The Woo 2”, which was released on the same day.Pusha claims that the 2021 album of the year belonged to Tyler, The Creator and his seventh studio album CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST. However, he implies that the title now belongs to Pop Smoke and his posthumous album FAITH. The album is likely to follow its predecessor’s success in going platinum, as Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon was certified 2x multi-platinum in June of 2021.Pusha’s reference to the crown is likely a nod to the King of New York, a title that numerous rappers have claimed, including Pop Smoke. Pop Smoke gave himself the title on his 2020 single “Christopher Walking”, where he raps:She know that papi outside, she know I’m the king of New York (Grr)The clown in question is likely rapper 6ix9ine, who also christened himself with the title on 2018’s “FEFE”, exclaiming:King of New York, lookin’ for the Queen6ix9ine has been labeled a clown by many prominent rappers for both his rainbow hair style and social media antics. Even Pop Smoke called out 6ix9ine for his hairstyle and loud rapping style on his track “Gangstas”, rapping:I don’t want none of that extra loud shit
This ain’t none of that rainbow hair shit
Know what I’m sayin’? (I be in New York with the gangsters)
This the real streets shit, yeah, nigga6ix9ine has responded harshly to the posthumous lyrics above, as he made light of Pop Smoke’s tragic death with cryptic jokes. While both Brooklyn rappers reached stardom, Pusha T clearly believes that Pop Smoke should hold the title as Brooklyn’s best.A “brick” is a kilo of cocaine. Each kilo, according to Pusha T, goes for $36,000. One can imagine moving a lot of these can get you a lot of money quick.
