Kanye West Pens Bizarre Poem About McDonald’s And The Internet Is Lovin’ It

Can’t resist the evil power of McDonald’s fries? Turns out you and Kanye West have something in common.

And he just wrote a poem about it.

Yup, one of the more interesting things to emerge from Frank Ocean’s magazine, Boys Don’t Cry, which promoted his new album Blond, was a poem penned by Kanye West about McDonald’s. We’re not joking.

The magazine features a full-on multi-page spread showing Kanye rolling through a Maccie D’s drive thru in his Lamborghini, Billboard reports.

Accompanied with the photos is a poem titled McDonald’s Man, and it’s basically about an array of items from the fast food giant’s menu and how you can’t trust any of them – except for the apple pie.

Thankfully, one Twitter user photographed the magazine pages:


The whole poem reads:

McDonalds Man
McDonalds 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
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 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 Diet Coke 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 weirdest thing about this though, is the revelation that Iggy Azalea actually knew about West’s ode to McDonald’s way back in 2013.

In an interview with The Guardian, Iggy said she heard the poem when she was over at West’s house.

She said:

He was playing me his ‘scriptures,’ as he calls his spoken-word interludes. There was one about McDonald’s: ‘Those fries/ Those fries/ I have them in my eyes/ That smooth apple pie…’ I love it. What is the line between art and ignorance?

So really, Yeezy has been sitting and perfecting this poem on McDonald’s fast food for at least three years.

A waste of time? Maybe, but everyone seems to love it:


Including McDonald’s themselves:

If this is one of the ideas Kanye West was talking about when he asked Mark Zuckerburg for one billion dollars, I’m glad he didn’t invest.
