Kanye West's highly anticipated album, "Yeezus," leaked onto the Internet Friday afternoon, ahead of its Tuesday release date (listen to it here). As EW predicted it would be, the most hyped lyric of the album, from the track "I Am a God" is -- wait for it -- "Hurry up with my damn croissants."

The lyric is pure Kanye at its core: indulgent and nonsensical and totally cray, and all-the-more annoyingly catchy for it. Given the sudden, bizarre rise of the croissant as a cultural phenomenon, however, at first glance it could seem like Kanye -- the man who understands culture, the man who is the nucleus -- somehow predicted the coming of the cronut.
