Kanye West Wrote A Poem About McDonald’s For Frank Ocean’s ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ Magazine

Frank Ocean released a new record and accompanying magazine this weekend. Heard about it? Of course, you have. The record is called Blonde and the magazine Boys Don’t Cry. It’s a major, ambitious project for the two-time Grammy winner, who can count many, many big-time, super-famous folks among his collaborators. One of those collaborators is none other than Kanye West. But not necessarily in the way you might think.

See, within Boys Don’t Cry, there’s a poem. And wasn’t penned by any old poet, it was penned by Kanye West. And, according to Consequence of Sound, the subject of Kanye’s poem is — wait for it — going to McDonald’s.

That’s right, one of the biggest pop music stars in all the land decided to contribute to another massive pop music star’s latest endeavor with some poetry about the Mickey D’s drive-thru. Check this out:

The McDonald’s Man
Calabassas, California

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

McDonalds man
McDonalds man
I know them French fries had a plan
I know them French fries had 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

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
I could see it through his artificial meat eyes
And he only be there some of the time
Everyone was jealous of them French fries
Expect for that one special guy
That smooth apple pie

In case you don’t believe this is actually real, there are accompanying photos of Kanye rolling through in his Lamborghini. Because why not? And the fans? They’re lovin’ it:
