10 Things We Learned From Kanye West’s ‘New York Times’ Interview


Kanye Sees Himself As the Next Steve Jobs

West: “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’ve been connected to the most culturally important albums of the past four years, the most influential artists of the past 10 years. You have like, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, Nicolas Ghesquière, Anna Wintour, David Stern.

“I think that’s a responsibility that I have, to push possibilities, to show people: ‘This is the level that things could be at.’”
