Kanye West: ‘I am the Steve Jobs of Internet, Downtown, Fashion, Culture’

Kanye West’s interview with The New York Times is a extensive look into an artist who is not afraid to say what he thinks, and one who is certainly not lacking in self-confidence. West says that he’s “undoubtedly” the “Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture,” referring to late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. Poor Kanye, he’s just wracked with self-doubt!

The New York Times, via The Verge:

“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 ten years. You have like, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, Nicolas Ghesquière, Anna Wintour, David Stern.”

West says: “Yeah, respect my trendsetting abilities. Once that happens, everyone wins. The world wins; fresh kids win; creatives win; the company wins […]  I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus.”

The far-ranging interview covers West’s new album, (“Yeezus”), Taylor Swift, The Grammy, slights both real and perceived, and “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” The entire interview can be perused on The New York Times website.
