In Kanye West’s “New Slaves” single, the multiple award winning Hip-Hop mogul talked about racism against the Black race in the United States which is very common in the capitalist-run States. Kanye West also rapped about Black Americans enslavement to flashy lifestyles such as diamond chain, Bentley cars, Fur coats, and whatnot. The need to buy things they don’t need.

In “New Slaves“, Kanye West also rapped against the New World Order – a propaganda or political agenda Barack Obama and his elites have been systematically promoting since he took office as the 1st black president of the United States. Kanye West also called out the United States DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) and CCA (Corrections Corporation of America) that they both teamed up to lockup Black people.

Kanye West New Slaves Lyrics

My momma was raised in an era when
Clean water was only served to the fairer skin
Doing clothes you would have thought I had help
But they wasn’t satisfied unless I picked the cotton myself
You see it’s broke ni99a racism
That’s that “Don’t touch anything in the store”
And this rich ni99a racism
That’s that “Come here, please buy more”
What you want, a Bentley? Fur coat? A diamond chain?
All you blacks want all the same things
Used to only be ni99as now everybody playing
Spending everything on Alexander Wang
New Slaves 

[Bridge]
You see it’s leaders and there’s followers
But I’d rather be a d*ck than a swallower

[Verse 2]
I throw these Maybach keys, I wear my heart on the sleeve
I know that we the new slaves, I see the blood on the leaves
I see the blood on the leaves, I see the blood on the leaves
I know that we the new slaves, I see the blood on the leaves
They throwing hate at me, want me to stay at ease
F∩ck you and your corporation, y’all ni99as can’t control me
I know that we the new slaves, I know that we the new slaves
I’m ’bout to wild the f∩ck out, I’m going Bobby Boucher
I know that p∩ssy ain’t free, you ni99as p∩ssy, ain’t me
Y’all throwing contracts at me, you know that ni99as can’t read
Throw ’em some Maybach keys, f∩ck it, c’est la vie
I know that we the new slaves, y’all ni99as can’t f∩ck with me
Y’all ni99as can’t f∩ck with Ye, y’all ni99as can’t f∩ck with Ye
I’ll move my family out the country, so you can’t see where I stay
So go and grab the reporters, so I can smash their recorders
See they’ll confuse us with some bullshit like the New World Order
Meanwhile the DEA, teamed up with the CCA
They tryna lock ni99as up, they tryna make new slaves
See that’s that privately owned prisons, get your piece today
They prolly all in the Hamptons, bragging ’bout what they made 
F∩ck you and your Hampton house, I’ll fuck your Hampton spouse
Came on her Hampton blouse and in her Hampton mouth
Y’all ’bout to turn shit up, I’m ’bout to tear shit down
I’m ’bout to air shit out, now what the f∩ck they gon’ say now? 

Apparently, there are more Blacks in the US prisons and jail than any other race in the country. Below are some quick facts on Black incarceration rate in the United States which I gathered from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People:

Black Americans in Prison

Black Americans in Prison

  • Today, the US is 5% of the World population and has 25% of world prisoners.
  • African Americans now constitute nearly 1 million of the total 2.3 million incarcerated population
  • African Americans are incarcerated at nearly six times the rate of whites
  • One in six black men had been incarcerated as of 2001. If current trends continue, one in three black males born today can expect to spend time in prison during his lifetime
  • 1 in 100 African American women are in prison
  • Nationwide, African-Americans represent 26% of juvenile arrests, 44% of youth who are detained, 46% of the youth who are judicially waived to criminal court, and 58% of the youth admitted to state prisons (Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice).
Black males are likely to be in jail during their prime time.

Though Kanye West’s song is somewhat controversial and some of its context is obnoxious, my hope is that the new single titled “New Slaves” will help bring some positive change to the way (young) Black people reason and live their individual lives. Mental slavery is very real, be it slavery to religion, slavery to consumerism, slavery to fashion, slavery to economy, slavery to the State, slavery to credit, slavery to the latest Jordan kicks, slavery to flashy lifestyles, just to name a few. Black people need to free their mind and think at all times.

Today’s Black Hip-Hop massively promotes mental slavery which is why rap heavyweights like Nas once said that Hip-Hop is dead. Why? It’s not just what it used to be anymore. I’m one of the many people that have lost respect for today’s Hip-Hop and many of its new artists from Lil Wayne to Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, 2Chainz, just to name a few. Music is suppose to make sense. How I wish Bob Marley is alive to mentor all these new cats (puppets) in today’s filthy music industry.
