Je kan de laatste maanden niet om Kanye West heen. De zelfbenoemde stem van een generatie, alleskunner aka God zelf heeft zijn nieuwe album en zijn nieuwe modecollectie uitgebracht. Tussendoor heeft hij nog genoeg tijd om rare quotes de wereld in te slingeren. Vandaag zei hij nog dat hij geen recensie van blanke recensenten wilt zien over zijn nieuwe album The Life of Pablo. Het feit dat hij zichzelf zo serieus neemt is reden genoeg om zijn meest bizarre uitspraken op een rijtje te zetten. Probeer je lach maar eens in te houden!
