“6 Foot 7 Foot” is an insane masterpiece, a declaration that Wayne has lost interest in making sense to you — keep up or don’t bother. I’m kind of shocked that it got performed on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ in the same way I’d be surprised if McDonalds ever slathered a quarterpounder with truffle oil or chipotle mayo. Rare treat if you can get it.

Sometimes music really does reward you. There was a time in my life when I derided this man’s abilities, before Da Drought Is Over 5, and I am sorry I ever doubted.
