Kanye West greatest human artist of all time?
Kanye West has termed himself as the greatest human artist of all time.
According to CNN, Kanye has previously called himself a creative genius saying his music is perfect. He also mentioned his plans to run for presidency.
“I’m unquestionably, undoubtedly, the greatest human artist of all time. It’s just not even a question anymore.”
He said during an interview with Beats 1 presenter Zane Lowe.
Kanye West released his new album called Jesus is King on Friday and has promised another “Jesus is Born” on Christmas.
Religion has frequently been present in his music and he has even asked some of his team not to engage in premarital sex while they worked on the album.
“Some people drown themselves in drugs, and I drown myself in my addiction, which was sex,” he said while talking of how he got addicted to pornography at a young age.
Kanye West has even started a weekly Sunday service gathering that features gospel-inspired remixes of classic songs of different genres and a gospel choir. The gathering is often an invite-only service.
Apart from music, Kanye ventures in clothing brand Yeezy, which showed at Paris Fashion Week.
He spoke about his plans to “bring manufacturing to America”, hiring workers for his Yeezy factories through American prison reform systems.
“I’m standing on the top of the mountain talking about Yeezus saying ‘I did this. I am a God.'”
The mountain he’s referring to is his stage design for the Yeezus tour in 2013/14, where it is reported he made $25 million (around sh 2.6 billion).
The stage design of the tour saw a Jesus lookalike appearing on stage.
The tour was the second highest grossing leg of a tour during 2013, after Paul McCartney.
Kanye also commented on his past quarrel with Drake, saying he wants to get back to “positive energies.”
“You cannot be in service to God and be mad at your brother.”
