* MoodWhiplash: "Blame Game" from ''My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy''. Kanye painfully recounts falling out with a woman (possibly Amber Rose) and mentions overhearing a conversation when her phone automatically dialed him back. The other man she's seeing is none other than ChrisRock. The phone call goes all the way up to hilarious ("You took your pussy game up to a whole 'nother level! This is some Cirque du Soleil pussy now!") to downright tragic again at the end.

* SincerityMode: Inverted. His online apology to Taylor Swift (in all caps) contained statements such as "I'm sorry Taylor... {{Beyonce}} had one of the greatest videos of all time!" Many argued whether or not he was truly being sincere (including the rather sincere 100+ tweet apology on Twitter) but Kanye confirmed in 2013 with the New York Times that he felt pressured into apologizing and he actually doesn't feel sorry for the incident.

** The set in the video for "Love Lockdown" is based on Patrick Bateman's apartment in ''AmericanPsycho''. West's performance was also influenced by the character. West later directed a promotional short for his album ''Yeezus'', featuring a re-creation of ''American Psycho''[='=]s infamous scene in which Bateman murders associate Paul Allen while conversing about Huey Lewis & The News' "Hip to be Square", replacing that song with "New Slaves", and the actors with Scott Disick and Jonathan Cheban.
