I open the debate… The 2nd verse of New Slaves is the best rap verse of all time….meaning … OF ALL TIME IN THE HISTORY OF RAP MUSIC, PERIOD

To keep the conversation away from his investigation for felony assault against a photographer, Kanye West posted on Twitter this weekend that the 2nd verse of "New Slaves" is the best rap verse of all time (by opening "a debate" then following that up with "PERIOD"). A verse that includes "Bobby Boucher" and the word "Hampton" four times. Sure, Kanye. Nas and Mos Def could stop and ask for directions and it would be better than any verse on Yeezus.
