Kanye West announced at his show on Sunday night that he and Kim Kardashian are expecting their first child, which brought back to memory the rapper's song where he reveals how he plans to raise his child.

On West and Jay-Z's New Day track, off their Watch the Throne album, the 35-year-old hip-hop artist raps:

And I'll never let my son have an ego

He'll be nice to everyone, wherever we go

I mean I might even make him be Republican

So everybody know he love white people

And I'll never let him leave his college girlfriend

And get caught up with the groupies in the whirlwind

And I'll never let him ever hit the telethon

I mean even if people dyin' and the world ends

See, I just want him to have an easy life

Not like Yeezy life, just want him to be someone people like

Don't want him to be hated all the time, judged

Don't be like your daddy that would never budge

And I'll never let him ever hit a strip club

I learned the hard way, that ain't the place to get love

And I'll never let his mom move to LA

Knowin' she couldn't take the pressure now we all pray

Though the lyrics are directed towards a son, they do offer insight into what sort of father West plans to be. Listen to the track, below:
