Magpies - 3/6/12 - Song Link


This song, "Gold Digger" By Kanye West, is a comical way of looking at this section. Wu Tsing is a self-made success, and he has many wives; kind of like a pimp. However, he picked a bad apple in Second Wife. I think it's safe to say that none of his women are with him for love, but Second Wife is so blatantly out with her greed; this song felt appropriate for the occasion. She fakes becoming sick from too much opium to get more money out of Wu Tsing, and he feeds her gold digging appetite. Kanye West describes many different scenarios involving numerous men who make a very decent salary, and women who tag along just for the opportunity to get a whiff of his bank account. This song describes Wu Tsing's situation perfectly, because if he didn't have the money and assets that he posesses, he wouldn't have any of these women; especially not Second Wife.
