The 23 Most Ridiculous Food Lyrics from Kanye West

yeezus

Kanye West has been called a genius numerous times. Granted, it’s usually just him saying it, but it does takes a special kind of artist to put together so many food references in his lyrics throughout the years. He’s at a point in his career where anything he says can be turned into an inspirational quote worthy of Pinterest/Tumblr/Instagram. That’s how genius works, right? From his affinity for Klondike bars to the nostalgic description of his mother’s chicken soup, Kanye finds masterful ways to incorporate food into his beautiful music.

Maybe he writes some of his best stuff in his kitchen, or at a restaurant, regardless, here’s 23 of Kanye West’s tastiest food references.

__________

aDoritos-Lollipop

In 2008 Kanye teamed up With Lil Wayne for the Lollipop remix and graced us with this double entendre that almost solidified his genius with one verse alone. Nacho cheese has never felt so complex.

__________

fritos-popa

Kanye didn’t stop there. The very next line in the Lollipop remix gave us another chip classic, this time using Fritos.

__________

Flashing-Hors-d'oeuvresa

Kanye showed his versatility in this one as he dropped some French on us. Not only did he tap into our food fantasies, but dropped a literature reference. Some said it couldn’t be done, but Kanye can do anything.

__________

alors-on-dansea

Keeping with the French theme, Kanye jumped on the Alors on Danse remix and talked about filet mignon. Unnecessary? Maybe. Awesome? Always.
__________

Christina-Milian-Klondikae

Kanye is known to ask the hard-hitting life questions. He’s somewhat of a philosopher in his own right, kind of. In this verse, he put a spin on the age-old Klondike question.

__________

blonde-dyke-klondikea

In this verse, Kanye kind of answered his own question from the last quote. He’d do anything.

__________

cool-whipa-slow-jamz

In this one, Yeezy showed one of his innovative uses for Cool Whip.

__________

chicken-soup-hey-maama

In one of his more serious songs, this one really showed a nostalgic West as he honored his mom’s home cooking.

__________

Fridays-Gonae

Yeezus showed some pretty classic foodie alternatives to jewelry in this one.

__________

Gorgeous-Fish-Sticka

This one was in retaliation to a classic South Park episode where Yeezy was compared to a “gay fish.”

__________

guilt-trip-vodkaa

Yeezus has hundreds of libation references in his music, as most rap artists do, but here he displayed a special ability to rhyme, “vodka” with “blocka, blocka, blocka, blocka.”
__________

Heartbreak-Cakea

This one is a bit painful if you’re a fan of cake. Having to leave a party early before the cake is cut is brutal, twice as brutal if there’s Rocky Road ice cream served with it.

__________

I-am-a-God-Croissanta

Yeezus showed his God-like rhyming as he let out his wrath on a lowly French server in this one.

__________

kobe-beef-like-thata

A tribute to one of the most dominant duos in basketball history. Unfortunately, he brought up the break up portion of the duo’s relationship.

__________

Last-call-mayonnaisea

This verse is probably close to Kanye’s heart, as he talked about it being one of the lines that got him noticed as a rapper and not just a producer. The power of food.

__________

Lawry's-Good-Lifea

‘Ye took Lawry’s to the mainstream with this one and started a rap style that took off with rappers like Drake and Lil Wayne.

__________

mocha-workout-plana

This is one of the simpler workout tips Kanye gives in this song.

__________

Paris-Fish-Fileta

Kanye teamed up with Jay-Z in this song and asked him these rhetorical questions that he clearly knew the answers to.

__________

So-appalled-cheeriaos

It takes true genius to to care about lowering your cholesterol.

__________

Sweet-aand-Sour
Yeezy sure does know what to do with those extra sweet and sour packets that McDonald’s… oh wait, they never give anyone enough sweet and sour sauce.

__________

through-the-pancaake-wire

We get three food references in this one as Kanye sadly describes the time in his life he broke his jaw in an accident and couldn’t enjoy food. If you’ve had braces, you can feel his pain. Sort of.

__________

Touch-thea-KFC

Wait, KFC has a buffet?

__________

We-don't-care-Cakae

Yeah. This is Kanye’s music in a nutshell.

__________

So there you have it. If you don’t feel inspired to eat something delicious after this, there’s something wrong with you. Go bake yourself a cake and call it genius.

How to Make Mini Samoa and Tagalong Ice Box Cakes

Confession: I saved my Girl Scout Cookies from last year in hopes I would be inspired to create something with them and wound up throwing them away last week. Shameful, I know, but I wasn’t going to make that mistake again. I’ve wanted to make an ice box cake for awhile (basically chocolate wafers, Cool Whip, and a lot of patience). But instead of wafers and 12 hours, I had lots of Girl Scout cookies and 12 minutes. So, I made a quick adaptation of an ice box cake that doesn’t need to sit in the fridge overnight. You’re getting both a Samoa and a Tagalong version here.

_____

Samoa “Ice Box” Cakes

???????????????????????????????

(makes 4 individual cakes)

Ingredients

  • 8oz Cool Whip
  • 1/2c coconut, toasted
  • 1/4c caramel topping
  • 1 box (15 cookies) Samosa/Caramel Delights

Directions

  1. In medium bowl, combine Cool Whip, toasted coconut, and caramel topping until no thick caramel streaks are left.
  2. Coarsely chop 12 Samoas (save 3) and stir into Cool Whip mixture.
  3. Scoop cookie combo into four 6-7 ounce ramekins and smooth out the tops.
  4. Coarsely chop final 3 Samoas and sprinkle atop the Cool Whip-cookie mixtures.

_____

Tagalong “Ice Box” Cakes

???????????????????????????????

(makes 4 individual cakes)

Ingredients

  • 8oz Cool Whip
  • 1/2c Jif Whipped Peanut Butter & Chocolate Flavored Spread (If you do nothing else in this recipe, buy this and eat with a spoon. Ah-may-zing!)
  • 1 box (15 cookies) Tagalongs

Directions

  1. In medium bowl, combine Cool Whip and whipped chocolate and peanut butter until no streaks are left.
  2. Coarsely chop 12 Tagalongs (save 3) and stir into Cool Whip mixture.
  3. Scoop cookie combo into four 6-7 ounce ramekins and smooth out the tops.
  4. Coarsely chop final 3 Tagalongs and sprinkle atop the Cool Whip-cookie mixtures.

It’s really as simple as that! These no-ice-box ice box cakes need to be in your hands (and your mouth) immediately.

Cool Whip Funfetti Whoopie Pies

“You can’t have a pie [whoopie or otherwise] without Cool Hwhip.” –Stewie Griffin

Have you been contemplating trying out a Whoopie Pie recipe only to be overwhelmed by the number of ingredients and the work involved? I have a solution!

A. Come visit me, and I shall bake some for you! Or save the gas money and…

B. Follow this quick and easy recipe:

Bunny trail: I tried to combine “quick and easy” to form a new word, but all I came up with was “queasy” and “easick.”  Yea, not what I’m going for. Anypie…

This recipe only has 6 ingredients: Funfetti cake mix, Cool Whip, eggs, nonpareils sprinkles, more cake mix and…more Cool Whip. I suppose that’s technically 4 ingredients, but the “more” cake mix and Cool Whip are kind of a separate entity. You’ll see.

Cool Whip Funfetti Whoopie Pies
(makes about 20 pies)

Ingredients

– 1 box Funfetti cake mix

– 1 tub (8oz) Cool Whip, thawed

– 2 eggs

– Lots and lots of nonpareils

– ½-3/4c cake mix, sifted (Wondering what to do with the left over cake mix? How about this, this, or this.)

– 1 tub (8oz) Cool Whip, thawed

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prep baking sheets with parchment.

2. Mix box of Funfetti cake mix, tub of Cool Whip and 2 eggs until combined.

3. Chill dough for an 30 minutes to an hour.

4. Using your 1.5T cookie scoop, scoop in to balls.

5. Rolls those cookies in the nonpareils and place on cookie sheet.

6. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes. Remove from sheet and let cool on cooling rack.

7. Meanwhile, mix remaining tub of Cool Whip and extra cake mix. (You’ll have to decide how cake-y you want the Cool Whip to taste).

8. Spread the cake-y Cool Whip between two Funfetti cookies and you are good to go.

Oh my gosh, this is like eating a crunchy cloud filled with the hopes and dreams of little children.

I like the versatility of this recipe. If Funfetti isn’t your bag, you can use your favorite flavor cake mix. Not into nonpareils? Roll the balls of cookie dough in powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, cocoa, etc. However you choose to personalize these pies, I’m sure the results will be just as awesome.
