Normally, relating to Kanye West can be a bit difficult. However, recently Kanye released something truly down-to-earth and real: a poem about McDonald’s.
The masterpiece was part of Frank Oceans’ creator magazine, Boys Don’t Cry, which was released in special pop-up shops in conjunction with his new album Blond.
“McDonald’s man / McDonald’s 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 / McDonald’s man / McDonald’s / 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 / I don’t trust no food that smells that good man / I don’t trust it / I just can’t / McDonald’s man / McDonald’s man / McDonald’s, man / 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.”
The piece earned a lot of attention and even McDonald’s took notice.

The poem really speaks to the masses. Maybe because we all secretly think the McDonald’s fries are conspiring against the other menu items, or more likely because we’re excited that celebs unashamedly love Mickey D’s as much as we do.
