My junior year of college, I lived in an apartment complex across the parking lot from a 24-hour McDonald’s that was in the parking lot of a 24-hour Wal-Mart. It was awesome coming home from bars at 3 AM and smelling that wonderful deep frier grease. Hell, in the days before all-day-breakfast, we’d stay up til 5AM just so we could walk over and drunkenly buy a fat stack of hashbrowns off the dollar menu or the occasional sausage Egg McMuffin.

I eat Mickey-Ds only occasionally these days. Kanye West, however, seems to be a superfan. Dude has literally been spotted going through the drive-thru in his $750,000 Lambo in the past. Now, in a magazine that accompanies Frank Ocean’s new album Boys Don’t Cry, Kanye published a poetic ode to McDonalds.

Why? Because… Art!

It reads like a creative writing project that a state school English major would write after g-bong rips of Maui Wowi while listening to Captain Beefheart records. Like, this is the exact shit I’d write and think is fucking genius after my late night munchie runs.

“I always knew them French fries was evil, man.”

McDonalds man
McDonalds man
The French fries had a plan
the French fries had a plan
The salad bar and the ketchup made a band
Cus the French fries had a plan
The French fries had a plan

McDonalds man
McDonalds
I know them French fries have a plan
I know them French fries have a plan
The cheeseburger and the shakes formed a band
To overthrow the French fries plan
I always knew them French fries was evil man
Smelling all good and shit
cI don’t trust it
I just can’t

McDonalds man
McDonalds man
McDonalds, damn
Them French fries look good tho
I knew the diet Coke was jealous of the fries
I knew the McNuggets was jealous of the fries
Even the McRib was jealous of the fries
I could see it through his artificial meat eyes
And he only be there some of the time
Everybody was jealous of them French fries
Except for that one special guy
That smooth apple pie
