Last week, the inaugural Fashion Los Angeles Awards popped off in sunny California. Kanye West was in the building as presenter of the Innovator of the Year award which went to his friend, Milk Studios founder Mazdack Rassi. As has become custom wheneve he has a mic at his disposal, Yeezy had plenty to say. Among speaking on his fondness of Rassi, to whom he credited with giving him a chance and being a visionary, West talked about his relationship with Vogue's Anna Wintour and his thoughts on the new age of fashion followers saying "Everyone's a fashion insider. It's illegal to be naked."

West even gave some remarks on how he believes creations and creative people can have a huge impact. "The world can be changed, the world can be saved through design," he said, "through unselfish design, through unselfish creation." As previously reported, this is the same speech where West revealed why he doesn't smile often saying, "not smiling makes me smile…When you see paintings in an old castle, people are not smiling cause it just wouldn’t look as cool.”

One thing he does have to cheese about is his upcoming album which should be dropping sooner than later based on 'Ye's 0-100 promotion for the project. West has already released two songs from the forthcoming LP in the baby North ode, "Only One" and the Paul McCartney and Rihanna assisted track "FourFiveSeconds." The Chicago artist also unveiled a heartfelt video for "Only One" and is prepping a visual for the newest leak, as well.
