Also, if you haven't read his interview with the NYT (it's like the first interview he's done in years), it's hilariously awesome. I can't decide if the guy is insane or a genius.

Here's some choice quotes from a Post article:

Quote:
Kanye West’s newest album is about to drop, and the rapper has stormed the press in anticipation of “Yeezus,” out June 18. While no one has ever accused West of being modest, he recently rambled absurd bon mots like how he’s the successor to Steve Jobs and is the Michael Jordan of music. Fans of Ye’s old Twitter feed should not be surprised at how quotable he is, but Page Six presents the six dumbest things West said in his recent New York Times interview.

1. On being a trendsetter: "I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period."


2. On his future: "I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus."

3. On social obligations: "Justice could just be clearing a path for people to dream properly. It could be clearing a path to make it fair within the arena that I play. You know, if Michael Jordan can scream at the refs, me as Kanye West, as the Michael Jordan of music, can go and say, 'This is wrong.'"

4. On his musical accomplishments: "I don’t know if this is statistically right, but I’m assuming I have the most Grammys of anyone my age, but I haven’t won one against a white person."

5. On his highly publicized baby with Kim Kardashian: “Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby.”

6. On why we should just let him be: “Like, I want the world to be better! All I want is positive! All I want is dopeness! Why would you want to control that?”
