Kanye West Wrote a Song About Michael Jordan

At his homecoming show in Chicago, Kanye West shared a musical tribute to another Chicago icon: Michael Jordan. The song is specifically about Jordan's brief career as a Washington Wizard, otherwise known as one of the all-time greatest tragedies in sports. Jordan's time as a Wizard lasted only two seasons and he spent many games sidelined due to injuries, it also tarnished his flawless reputation as the name and face of the Chicago Bulls. So it's no wonder that Kanye is a little perturbed about that particular period of history and penned "We Should Have Never Ever Let Michael Jordan Play for the Wizards."

And while it probably won't be the Bulls' new entrance music, it's clearly a hit with the Chicago crowd.

And because this is the internet, there are already full lyrics, via Medium:

We should’ve never ever let Michael Jordan play for the Wizards
We should’ve never ever let Michael Jordan play for the Wizards
We should’ve never ever let MJ play for the Wizards
Why did that happen?
Why did that happen?

We should’ve never ever let MJ play for the Wizards
We couldn’t stop — we would stop — MJ playing for the Wizards
Why did that happen?

Six championships
The best years of our life
Playing through the flu
Every single night
I believed I could fly
and I wanted to be just like Mike
I believed I could fly
and I wanted to be just like Mike

We should’ve never ever let MJ play for the Wizards
Why did that happen?

Does anybody here know why that happened?

When a player
When a player wants to become an owner
When a player
When a player that’s done more for the league than the league could’ve done for him
When a player that MADE the NBA wants to become an owner of the team that he brought so much glory to, a team he brought so much story to
A team that has his statue in the front of the motherfucking building
But do you know what the owners of that team told MJ?
You’re just a player, homeboy
You can’t get no pay
You can’t own shit
THEY TOLD MICHAEL JORDAN THAT HE COULDN’T OWN SHIT

We should’ve never ever let MJ play for the Wizards
We should’ve never ever let MJ play for the Wizards

Now y’all know why MJ went to play for the Wizards

Because this very team wouldn’t let him be an owner
I’m talking about one of the most important people in our civilization
One of the most influential people in our civilization
They tried to marginalize
And in order to make his point he had to put on a MOTHERFUCKING WIZARDS JERSEY
To let y’all know “Oh yes I am gonna be an owner just like Magic Johnson”

We should’ve never let MJ ever play for the Wizards
Never never never never let him go
Because til I die MJ represents the Bulls

So tonight I’m about to put my 23 on
So tonight I gotta put my 23 on
