Kanye West Was Movied By Frank Ocean’s "Boys Don’t Cry" And Wrote This Inspired By McDonald

Kanye West has been inspired by the Golden Arches.

The rapper penned an unexpected poem about fast-food chain McDonald’s, of all things, for Frank Ocean’s glossy magazine Boys Don’t Cry, which arrived Saturday night (Aug. 20) in conjunction with the singer’s new album, Blonde.

“McDonald’s man / McDonald’s man / The French fries had a plan / The French fries had a plan,” West begins the poem, which appeared alongside a spread of high-fashion photos, poems penned by Ocean, short stories, an outline for a TV show and interviews with Lil’ B and Om’Mas Keith.

Other contributors listed in the credits for the magazine included Tyler, the CreatorJames BlakeA$AP Rocky, and photographer Nabil Elderkin.

After releasing his visual album Endless on Thursday (Aug. 18) and a music video for “Nikes” early Saturday, Ocean released Blonde on Apple Music. To commemorate the release of the album and its accompanying periodical, the singer staged pop-up shops in New York, London, Chicago and Los Angeles.

Read West’s full poem below.

McDonalds Man 
McDonalds Man
The French Fries Had A Plan
The French Fries Had A Plan
The Salad Bar And The Ketchup Made A Band
Cus The French Fries Had A Plan
The French Fries Had A Plan
McDonalds Man
McDonalds
I Know Them French Fries Had A Plan
I Know Them French Fries Had A Plan
The Cheeseburger And The Shakes Formed A Band
To Overthrow The French Fries Plan
I Always Knew Them French Fries Was Evil Man
Smelling All Good And Shit
I Don’t Trust No Food That Smells That Good Man
I Don’t Trust It I Can’t
McDonalds Man
McDonalds Man
McDonalds Damn
Them French Fries Look Good Tho
I Knew The Diet Coke Was Jealous Of The Fries
I Knew The Diet Coke Was Jealous Of The Fries
Even The McRib Was Jealous Of The Fries
I could See It Through His Artificial Meat Eyes
And He Only Be There Some Of The Time
Everybody Was Jealous Of Them French Fries
Except For That One Special Guy
That Smooth Apple Pie
