Are You Still Watching The Throne?? Hov And Yeezy Drop New Single “Otis”

- By Bossip Staff

And a few saying what we know is probably the honest truth about this joint.

Some are saying you can’t appreciate this track fully if you didn’t catch all the lyrics…

Sounds so soulful don’t you agree
I invented swag
Poppin bottles putting supermodels in the cab
I guess I got my swagger back
Truth. New watch alert, Hublot’s
Or the big face Rollie I got two of those
Arm out the window through the city I maneuver slow
Cock back, snap back
See my cut through the holes

[Kanye West]
Damn Yeezy and Hov,
Where the hell ya been?
N*ggas talkin real reckless: stuntman
I adopted these n*ggas, Phillip Drummond them
Now I’m bout to make them tuck they whole summer in
They say I’m crazy but I’m ’bout to go dumb again
They aint see me cause I pulled up in my other Benz
Last week I was in my other other Benz
Throw your diamonds up cause we in this bitch and up again

Photo shoot fresh
Looking like wealth
I’m about to call the paparazzi on myself
Uh, live form the Mercer, run up on Yeezy the wrong way
I might murk ya
Flee in the G450 I might surface
Political refugee asylum can be purchased
Uh, everythings for sale, I got 5 passports
I’m never going to jail

[Kanye West]
I made Jesus walks so never going to hell
Couture level flow is never going on sale
Luxury rap, the Hermes of verses
Sophisticated ignorance
Write my curses in cursive
I get it custom
You a customer
You aint accustomed to going through customs
You aint been nowhere huh?
And all the ladies in the house got them showing off
I’m done I hit ya up, manana!

Welcome to Havanna
Smoking Cubana’s with Castro in Cabana’s
Viva Mexico, Cubana, Dominicano
All the plugs that I know
Driving Benz’s, With no benefits
Not bad huh? for some immigrants
Build your fences, we diggin’ tunnels
Can’t you see we gettin money up under you

Can’t you see the private jets flying over you
Maybach bumper sticker read “What would Hova do?”
Jay is chillin, Ye is chillin
What more can I say
We killin’ ‘em
Hold up before we in this campaign
As you can see we bodied the damn lames
Lord please let them accept the things they cant change
And pray that all of their pain be champagne

Now bigger question remains: who owns it?

    Wanted to love it. DYING to love it…but real talk I’m underwhelmed…and it’s a shame too since it’s my favorite Otis Redding track. I feel like they’re not saying anything new…it doesn’t feel fresh to me. I can’t love the song just because it’s THEM rapping…I hope this and HAM aren’t the best they have to offer.

    Rflol…to nikkas “high off weed” talking ego based shitz with their grand parents “real” music blaring in the background …lmao!

  • People love negativity

    It’s not that deep. Either u like it or not. I never understand all the extra. Your NOT famous! Why you mad? Well maybe that’s why your mad- nobody know you.

  • Besides yourself

    I love it

  • Bigryde

    The shizzle getting real now! I love it and will be waiting to purchase the whole LP! Real Hip-hop!

  • Disappointed fan :-(

    I’m one of the biggest Kanye and Jay-Z fans but this is the first time I’ve ever said that one of their songs is WHACK! I’m sorry this is just not good at all. They’re talkin about the same thing they do in every other song “themselves” and it has nothing to do w/ the original Otis redding song! I’m so disappointed.

  • homicidalbrainiac

    Lol @ gina…I totally agree…the song’s ok…I’ve heard better, I’ve heard worse…

  • daahlingnikki

    I like Kanye when he has some substance to his music…I haven’t connected to anything Jay has made since reasonable doubt…Needless to say theres no growth to this just the same we’re rich and you’re not bull…they want to be kings but yet they sound like every other peon in the industry….

  • Kanye and Jay-z release "Otis" from album Watch the Throne | Esi Magic

    […] Listen to “Otis” […]

  • Janay

    Until we start holding these musicians accountable they will not make better music that that speaks to the people instead of bragging to the people. Umtimately we hold the power not them.
