Kanye West “Diamonds From Sierra Leone”
If a stripper named Porscha and u get tips from many men/ Then your fat friend her nickname is Minivan/ Excuse me, That’s just the Henny man/ I smoke, I drink, I’m supposed to stop I can’t
Kanye has a playful rhyme listed here. He describes the type of treatment different people get, depending on factors such as occupation and body size. A stripper, if she is good and the opposite of overweight, can get excellent treatment from men. this includes large tips that can eventually lead to a Porsche. It is destined for this stripper to get the good things, because of her value to these men visiting strip clubs. Since it is destined, she might as well be called Porsha, the woman who is sure to drive a Porsche. However, if this woman has a fat friend, the antithesis of what men want to reward in a strip club, then she might as well call herself mini-van. Mini-vans, generally associated with soccer moms and large families, is clearly not as fancy as the Porsche. But in a world where sexism and favoritism can still play a role in the rewards women receive, “Mini-Van” can’t get the same type of car Porsha can drive. Nor can Mini-Van receive the same respect (in a strip club anyways). This is a pretty mean joke, but always remember that Kanye likes to kid around a lot when he drinks that Hennesey. He tells himself to stop drinking and smoking, but who knows if he could come up with this witty jokes without it.
So if you have the status and “goods” like Porsha, then drive that Porsche. Otherwise, good luck with the Mini-Van (or working in an occupation different than Porsha).
