Dass Kanye West nicht der bescheidenste „Künstler“ der Musikwelt ist, dürfte nicht neu sein. Diplomatisch ausgedrückt kann man sagen, dass er nicht gerade mit beiden Beinen fest auf dem Boden steht. Seine Selbstbezeichnung YEEZUS (Titel seines 6. Studioalbums) und generelle Vergleiche mit göttlichen Kräften und übernatürlichen Schöpfungen lassen es uns jedenfalls glauben.
Die Welt wäre ohne Kanyes komische Kommentare und seine verqueren Ansichten trotzdem etwas weniger lustig. Aus diesem Grund haben wir Mr. West eine eigene kleine Liste mit seinen besten und abstrusesten Bemerkungen gewidmet. Wir präsentieren:

Kanye West Zitate: Deeper Shit

1. „My greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.“

2. „I am Warhol. I am the No. 1 most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh.“

Kanye West

3. „I hate when I’m on a flight and I wake up with a water bottle next to me like oh great now I gotta be responsible for this water bottle.“

4. „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.“

5. „I am so credible and so influential and so relevant that I will change things.“

6. „Sometimes people write novels and they just be so wordy and so self-absorbed. I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book’s autograph. I am a proud non-reader of books.“

7. „I am the number one human being in music. That means any person that’s living or breathing is number two.“

8. „I’m going down as a legend, whether or not you like me or not. I am the new Jim Morrison. I am the new Kurt Cobain … The Bible had 20, 30, 40, 50 characters in it. You don’t think that I would be one of the characters of today’s modern Bible?“

9. „I’m like a vessel, and God has chosen me to be the voice and the connector.“

10. „I mean, my music isn’t just music, it’s medicine. I want my songs to touch people, to give them what they need. Every time I make an album, I’m trying to make a cure for cancer, musically.“

11. „You should only believe about 90 percent of what I say. As a matter of fact, don’t even believe anything that I’m saying at all. I could be completely fucking with you, and the world, the entire time.“
