This is totally what happened. Just look in Second Genesis 3:17, it's all written out.
On a more serious note, I'm not actually going to give you real information on this egomaniac, because if you actually really care about that then you can look it up. It's really a lot more fun to make stuff up about him anyway.
Something I like about this song is the synth. It kinda has an Egyptian feel I think, and it's really really catchy. Also Kanye sounds more racist than most KKK representatives in this song, but it's ok cause he's black.
