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.
I blame him for the bow tie plague.
"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."
"The longer your ‘gevity is, the more confidence you build. The idea of Kanye and vanity are like, synonymous."

"This one Corbusier lamp was like, my greatest inspiration ... I’m a minimalist in a rapper’s body."

The first time I heard it with Kanye's vocals, I had to do a double-take on a couple of the lines. But if you’re gonna do a song like that, you may as well go all the way [...] he absolutely knew what he wanted to do on that track.
[...]there were tons of easy slam dunks, but rather than just going for the hits and having an album that nobody's going to give a fuck about in a month or two, he intentionally sidestepped the obvious route each time.
[...]"Boom! We just made a song, and it bangs, so fuck you."
