No good conspiracy theory can be built without a solid foundation. And the bricks really start to pile up here.
1. Back in 2007, Kanye referenced OJ's bloody glove in "Stronger."
2. The first time, in "On Sight," he namedrops Johnnie Cochran, OJ's lawyer.
3. The second time, Agent Sasco is featured and sings about OJ's beating murder charges in "I'm in it."
So Kanye directly references OJ in three tracks. Telling, but not enough to round out "facts." For that, Kanye would have to say something like this at VH1 Storytellers:
4. "O.J. Simpson, amazing. Is he not? What he did, when he did, what he did. Was he not amazing though?" - Kanye West
So there we have it. Kanye is enamored with OJ. But... How enamored is he? To what lengths would Kanye go to associate himself with OJ? So begins the theorizing!
Once you have the facts down, you really start to wonder about some other interesting details... For example:
5. Would Kanye be interested enough in OJ to feature Anna Nicole Smith in the "New Workout Plan" video, just because...
... SHE STARRED IN OJ'S FINAL MOVIE, NAKED GUN 33 1/3!
6. Would Kanye be interested enough in OJ to reference the movie "Any Given Sunday" in "Gold Digger" just because...
IT WAS BASED ON A BOOK BY DR. ROBERT HUIZENGA, A MEDICAL EXPERT IN THE OJ TRIAL!
7. And would Kanye be interested enough in OJ to the name his hit single "Love Lockdown" just because...
THE NAME OF THE PRISON OJ WAS LATER SENTENCED TO WAS THE LOVELOCK CORRECTIONAL CENTER!
Now that we've seen the connections run DEEP, we might be able to answer some other major questions, like:
8. Is that the whole reason he is with Kim???
Hear us out. Remember, as recently as December, no one could figure out why Kanye was with Kim.
What if... WHAT IF... Kanye is interested less in Kim and more in Kardashian, as in... KIM'S FATHER ROBERT KARDASHIAN - OJ'S OTHER LAWYER!?
9. And there's one final mystery we may have solved as well...WHY DID KIM AND KANYE NAME THEIR BABY "NORTH?"
A source says the reason is "North is the most high. There is nothing higher than North."
Like we're going to believe that.
