Father, I stretch my hands

Stretch my hands to you

Lifelike, this is what your life like

Try to live your life right

People really know you, push your buttons like typewrite

This is like a movie, but it's a game of life, right

Every single night right, every single bright right

I was looking at the 'Gram, and I don't even like likes

I was screamin' out; my dad told me, "It ain't Christ-like."

Well, nobody tells you who you like? Christ

Only ever seein' me, only when you needed me

Lifestyle, everything, oh you can B-E-T

Searchin' for a deity, now you want to see a freak

Now you want to see the monster, let me see you be

Tell me what your life like, turnin' down a bright light

Talkin' with my dad, and he told me, "It ain't Christ-like" (Stretch my hands to you)

I'm just trying to ride like I'm lookin' for a new wave

I'm just lookin' to work, see me on my fresh wave

I don't want any pure wave, see me on my best, though

Rest in love with God, I don't really want arrest 'em

Let me see your life, like, everything in my life (Stretch my hands to you)

Argue with my dad, and he said, "It ain't Christ-like"

Yeah (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

You know, it's like (Yeah)

Kanye West Biography

When Kanye West was three years old , his parents divorced and Kanye left with his mother in Chicago. As a child, he was no different from other boys: he played basketball , adored video games and went to regular school. A bit later, a fascination with music appeared: Kanye wrote poetry and composed melodies on a synthesizer. He even thought about the singer's career. Still, he understood the complexity of this work and the massive competition in the market, so he decided to get a more respectable profession and entered the State University of Chicago, where his mother taught philology.

Still, the music took up , and a year later Kanye left the university with a firm decision to conquer New York , and with it the whole of America. There was no one to ask for money for rental housing and a ticket , and Kanye, not without regret, laid down his gold chain - a favorite attribute of a beginner hip-hopper. Both parents belonged to creative professions. Ray West's father was one of the first African American photojournalists. Mom Donda West at the time of the birth of her son taught English at the University of Clark Atlanta and had the academic title of professor. Later, she headed the Faculty of Philology at the University of Chicago, and when Kanye needed a personal manager, the woman assumed these responsibilities.

Music and creativity

Back in school and student time, Kanye West wrote music for other artists, including Beyoncé and Janet Jackson, the younger sister of Michael Jackson. But later he began his path in show business. Unfortunately, at first, Kanye received rejections from record studios. They enjoyed buying the author's samples but didn't want to hear about the rapper, who grew up in an intelligent family, and not among young gangsters.

In New York, Kanye had to fight for a place in the sun, but patience and talent did their job: the clients of the beginning composer were Lil' Kim, Jay Z, Alisha Keyes, Janet Jackson, Paul Wall. Jay-Z was particularly pleased with the cooperation, his sixth album, Blueprint has received a new meaning thanks to the efforts of Kanye, and the lyrics have turned out so well-aimed, that the collection went double platinum. Later, Kanye and Jay Z often worked together, recording duets, and became not only colleagues but also good friends. The case came to the rescue. In the fall of 2002, West, returning home from a recording studio, was in a car accident. He received a jaw fracture and miraculously survived, and his views on life changed. He put all his experiences into several singles, which he dedicated to God and his incredible salvation. Giving them to another singer was pointless, because they told the personal story of Kanye himself, and he released the debut disc The College Dropout. The record received platinum status three times. Rap music involves a narrative of the difficulties that a performer had to face in life.

Personal life

In his youth, Kanye West met with designer Alexis Fifer and even became engaged to her, but a year and a half after the engagement, the young people announced their separation.

Then the rapper had a two-year romance with model Amber Rose.

And in 2012, West began a relationship with the star of the reality show and model Kim Kardashian, with whom he had been familiar for five years. A year later, at a party on the occasion of Kim's 33rd birthday, the musician proposed to her. This happened in a festive atmosphere at the AT&T Park Stadium in San Francisco, and all family members and friends of Kanye and Kim witnessed a declaration of love.

Kanye West now

In April 2018, Kanye West hinted on Twitter that he was going to run for president in 2024. To the recording, the singer attached posters with his photograph and the slogan: "Keep America Great ." Thus, West referred to the motto of the current leader of the country, Donald Trump. During the election, Kanye supported Trump's candidacy and, after the victory, met with the new head to discuss multiculturalism in the United States.
