Kanye West Calls Himself The "Steve Jobs Of Internet, Fashion And Culture"

12 June 2013, 10:52

The 'Otis' rapper opens up about his significance to the world and praises his trendsetting abilities.

Kanye West has once again referred to himself as Steve Jobs during a new interview with the New York Times.

The 'Jesus Walks' rapper was seen ranting on stage in Paris saying he was like Walt Disney, Picasso and the late Apple founder.

"Respect my trendsetting abilities. Once that happens, everyone wins," he said in the new interview as he praised his ability to start new trends. "The world wins; fresh kids win; creatives win; the company wins."

He then continued to open up about his meaning and significance to the world.

"I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means," he added. "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."

He then also went back to some of his previous comparisons.

"I've been connected to the most culturally important albums of the past four years, the most influential artists of the past ten years," he said. "You have like, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, Nicolas Ghesquière, Anna Wintour, David Stern."

He ended his remarks with the statement "I am the nucleas" and said he will one one day be worth billions of dollars.

"I think that's a responsibility that I have, to push possibilities, to show people: 'This is the level that things could be at'," he continued. "So when you get something that has the name Kanye West on it, it's supposed to be pushing the furthest possibilities.

"I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus."

Kanye will release new album 'Yeezus' next week and this week explained the title of the record and confirmed a list of collaborations on the record.
