Yeezy wants to change the world. An impassioned Kanye West returned to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday to talk about his aspirations.
During his lengthy appearance, the Life of Pablo MC discussed his ideas to “make the human race existence better” while apologizing to “daytime television” for “the realness.”
“We’ve got a hundred years here,” he said. “We’re one race, the human race, one civilization. We’re a blip in the existence of the universe and we’re constantly trying to pull each other down, not doing things to help each other. That’s my point. I’m shaking talking about it. I know it’s daytime TV, but I feel that I can make a difference while I’m here. I feel like I can make things better through my skill set.”
Launching from topic to topic, he also referenced legends like Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, Pablo Picasso, Rakim, and Michael Jackson. “I literally have to be Michael Jackson of apparel in order to break open the doors for everyone that will come after I’m gone, after I’m dead, after they call me Wacko Kanye,” he said. “Isn’t that so funny that people point fingers at the people who have influenced us the most?”

Yeezy was open during his Q&A, but he was more tight-lipped when it came to his children, both present and potential. Speaking on North, Mr. West simply said that “she’s really advanced for her age.” He also celebrated his son Saint by posing like baby ‘Ye. But he was more mum on a future child, simply adding: “Let’s see what happens.”
The interview was just a portion of the talk. Yeezy also participated in the show’s “5 Second Rule” game, where contestants have to respond to questions within five seconds. Yeezy had a hard time with the game rules, but still seemed to enjoy it.
