Kanye West "Mercy"

Kanye has a knack for exploring the ridiculousness of his own lifestyle, making any debate about his music incomplete until we've put him up against himself. For this round we'll take Yeezus' "New Slave" and juxtapose it to one of the most opulent verses the Louis Vuitton Don has spit: "Let the suicide doors up/ I do suicides on the tour bus/ I do suicides on the private jet/ You know what that mean, I'm fly to death/ I step in Def Jam building like I'm the s--- / Tell 'em 'Give me 50 million or I'm a quit.'" Even his art references are rich on this one: "Now the whole party is melted like Dalí." (Photo: 13thWitness/Getty Images for Samsung)
