Rhymefest Blasts Kanye West's Lyrics: I Give That A Zero

The songwriter rates bars by Ye, Common, Lupe Fiasco, and other Chicago rappers.

(AllHipHop News) Che "Rhymefest" Smith played a huge role in the making of Kanye West's Grammy-winning track "Jesus Walks" and other records. However, the two Chicago natives recently had a public falling out over the Donda's House non-profit organization.

Even though Rhymefest is no longer closely associated with Ye, the poet/activist was asked to rate some of the G.O.O.D. Music leader's music. BET tapped him to share his opinion on lyrics by other Windy City representatives Lil Reese, Common, G Herbo, Sasha Go Hard, and Lupe Fiasco as well.

At one point, Rhymefest rated the "bleached her asshole" line from Kanye's "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1." The songwriter was not a fan.

"When I first heard this lyric, I said, 'Huh? What that mean? What you talking about?'" said Smith. "I said this is not who you are. Who you are is you're humanity and vanity have to fight each other. If it's all vanity or all humanity, it don't work... That's all vanity. That's no humanity."

Rhymefest added, "This right here, this was the beginning. This is when I took an airplane, went home and said f-ck it. I give that a zero."
