Let us throw our hands to heaven and rejoice in rapturous bliss as the gods of pop culture have finally reached a zenith of inter-textuality as the Seinfeld2000 Twitter account has mashed up audio of Kanye West, rapping over the Seinfeld theme. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Seinye.
Coming of course as part of a larger wave of insanity around the release of his latest album The Life Of Pablo, including delays amid him publicly declaring he is $53 million in debt and then a confusing appeal for money from Mark Zuckerberg via Twitter (surely you’d use Facebook?), I for one am loving the level of crazy this time round.
And while this video isn’t a direct product of Kanye’s seemingly unstable mental state, the lyric to the original song certainly bare some of the classic narcissism (or perhaps a commentary on it) that we’ve come to expect from him.
Titled what else but I Love Kanye, Yeezy raps his own first name an impressive 25 times, in the self-aware meta cut from The Life Of Pablo. Rapping “I miss the sweet Kanye / Chop up the beats Kanye / I gotta say at that time I’d like to meet Kanye,” it matches incredibly well with Jonathan Wolff’s iconic faux slap-bass theme (that’s right, he played it on a keyboard and the world is made of deceit and lies).
