In breaking news, it appears that rapper Kanye West, who is dropping his new album Yeezus on June 18 and expecting a baby daughter with Kim Kardashian in July, may have a problem with his ego.
Wait. We already knew that!
During a recent concert at the NYC Governors Ball last Sunday, Yeezy shouted out to the crowd:
“I am a God!”
He also has taken a lot of heat from conservative Christians for comparing himself to Jesus Christ in his highly anticipated forthcoming album, Yeezus.
Now he sat down for an exclusive interview with the New York Times and has proclaimed himself to be the new Steve Jobs.
“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. By a long jump. I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it’s like when Biggie passed and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z.”
“I’ve been connected to the most culturally important albums of the past four years, the most influential artists of the past ten years. You have like, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, Nicolas Ghesquière, Anna Wintour, David Stern.”
“I think that’s a responsibility that I have, to push possibilities, to show people: “This is the level that things could be at.” So when you get something that has the name Kanye West on it, it’s supposed to be pushing the furthest possibilities. 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.”
Yeezus Christ, someone calm this guy down! We still love you though, Kanye.
