Is Kanye Having An Identity Crisis?
Gil Scot-Heron/Miles Davis
Kanye declared himself in the lane of two legendary black soul and jazz artists, Gil Scott-Heron and Miles Davis, in his 2013 New York Times interview.
“I am in the lineage of Gil Scott-Heron, great activist-type artists. But I’m also in the lineage of a Miles Davis—you know, that liked nice things also.”
