Kanye West: ‘I’m the Number One Rock Star on the Planet’

Kanye West

Kanye West has never been modest. The rap mogul declares his greatness in a new interview with Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1.

“We the real rock stars and I’m the biggest of all of ‘em,” says Yeezus. “I’m the number one rock star on the planet.”

He also talks fashion, recalling one of his red carpet looks and has some advice for his fellow rappers: “No flip flops for black dudes… Wear some hot ass Jordans on the beach.”

Plus, he reflects on his music including his 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. “Dark Fantasy could be considered to be perfect,” says ‘Ye. “I know how to make perfect, but that’s not what I’m here to do.”

The four-part interview will begin airing on Monday. Get a sneak peek below.

  12. Wow

    I’m sorry, but if you have to keep reminding people how “great” you are, you’re not that great.
    Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Tupac, etc. Did any of them have to boast about how “great” they were every time they did an interview? Heck no. SMH. Kayne needs to humble himself. The end.

    Say whatever you want about Ye, but I also consider MBDTF to be perfect, hell look at the reviews they were even perfect scores, numbers don’t lie.
