Dat Kanye West niet vies is van een statement hier en daar, is geen geheim. In fact, Mr. West begint tegenwoordig al gekender te worden om z'n opmerkelijke rants dan om z'n muziek. Fact: zijn ego is immens groot en lijkt alleen maar proportioneel toe te nemen met de jaren, logisch gevolg is dat er meer dan eens questionable quotes uit Kanye's mond komen. Ter opvolging van Karl (part I & II), zetten we de opmerkelijkste quotes van van Kanye ook even op een rij.
Kanye over zijn dochter:
"My daughter is in a position of a level of royalty like the Prince and Princess in London."
Een verwarrend statement over Instagram:
"I'm not on Instagram but I was just thinking what would it be called, would it be called Yeezus? What type of things do I Instagram. I don't want to ... I feel like I'm giving away too many codes. All these codes that I said I wanted to put inside of film, content and inside of clothing ... I need that ... I need that to apply to this product ... At this point there is things that inspire me, but I want to make new things to civilization. The Instagram is not enough of a creative out for me."
Kanye over zijn (seksuele) drijfkracht:
"People ask me a lot about my drive. I think it comes from, like, having a sexual addiction at a really young age. Look at the drive that people have to get sex - to dress like this and get a haircut and be in the club in the freezing cold at 3 A.M., the places they go to pick up a girl. If you can focus the energy into something valuable, put that into work ethic."
Don't mess with Kanye, of hij schrijft er een lied (I am God) over - bijna hysterisch over Hedi Slimane:
"He was once a friend of mine, in the time of Christian Dior. And I used to wear his tight-ass jeans when I was on tour and get called names for it ... And Hedi Slimane was a god who didn’t serve no bullshit ... But it takes a god to recognize another god. So when he told me you can come to my show, but you can’t come to see Phoebe Philo and you can’t come to see Riccardo Tisci, that was odd. He tried to control me! He tried to tell me where I could go!"
Als de Bijbel vandaag zou geschreven zijn, zou Kanye erin staan.
"I bring up historical subjects in a way that makes kids want to learn about them. I'm an inspirational speaker. I changed the sound of music more than one time ... For all those reasons, I'd be a part of the Bible. I'm definitely in the history books already."
