Q:You’ve won a lot of Grammys?
A: 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. (not true in 2010 he beat Andy Samberg & Akiva Schaffer "Im on a Boat" for best Rap Collaboration for" Run This Town")Example 2
: (this was completely incoherent)
"But the passion is for humanity. The passion is for people. The passion is for the 18-year-old version of myself. The passion is for the kids at my shows. I need to do more. I need to be able to give people more of what they want that currently is behind a glass. I don’t believe that it’s luxury to go into a store and not be able to afford something. I believe luxury is to be able to go into a store and be able to afford something.
I sat down with a clothing guy that I won’t mention, but hopefully if he reads this article, he knows it’s him and knows that out of respect, I didn’t mention his name: this guy, he questioned me before I left his office:, “If you’ve done this, this, and this, why haven’t you gone further in fashion?” And I say, “I’m learning.” But ultimately, this guy that was talking to me doesn’t make Christmas presents, meaning that nobody was asking for his [stuff] as a Christmas present. If you don’t make Christmas presents, meaning making something that’s so emotionally connected to people, don’t talk to me."Example 3:
(maybe he didnt mean to say "the world" but he said "the world" wins when people respect Kanye West trendsetting. I have no idea how the little boys in Somalia won when Kanye made those lined sunglasses a trend. Or how the 1 billion people who live on less than a dollar a day won when he set the leather sweats trend. **I know I'm being sanctimonious as hell but you can't say "the world" with a straight face and your trends lack any social or moral conscious; blood diamonds be damned)
"Yeah, respect my trendsetting abilities. Once that happens, everyone wins. The world wins; fresh kids win; creatives win; the company wins."Example 4:
I really laughed at this, it was more funny than anything else---which one does not belong
"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."Example 5[/B
]: This is crazy point blank. If he wants to feel himself to death, more power to him. His braggadocio is unquestioned. But the **** is crazy and presupposes money pushes culture.
"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."
