On the 10th anniversary of West's "College Dropout" album Kanye at "College Dropout" Kanye Today On love and money: "And ladies. if you follow these instructions exactly / You might be able to pull you a rapper, a NBA player / Man, at least a dude with a car!" "She was in a powerful enough situation, where she could love me without asking me for my money, which is really hard for me to find." On Jesus: "God show me the way because the Devil trying to break me down / (Jesus walks with me) / The only thing that I pray is that my feet don't fail me now / (Jesus walks) / And I don't think there is nothing I can do now to right my wrongs / (Jesus walks with me) / I want to talk to God but I'm afraid because we ain't spoke in so long." "I just talked to Jesus / He said, "What up, Yeezus?" / I said, "Shit I'm chillin' Trying to stack these millions" / I know he the most high / but I am a close high."

"Its not about racism anymore, its classism. Like Paula Deen, she was old school with it. They like, 'we dont do it like that anymore, thats racist. We classist now.' Classism is when they try to say, Youre a rapperyour girl is on a reality show so youre not up here with us. Were old money. Its snobbery."
