14 June 2013, 11:36

The 'Gold Digger' star says he won't allow culture be "dumbed down" any more.

Kanye West has made a controversial speech claiming the world is in a "fight" against the "constant dumbing down of culture", and has vowed to try and "push culture forward every chance" he gets.

The 'All Of The Lights' rapper also commented on his role as boyfriend to celebrity star Kim Kardashian, while making a speech at an impromptu listening party for his new album 'Yeezus'.

The US star held the surprise event out in Switzerland and promises he won't allow culture to be dumbed down "on my clock".

"Right now it's a fight against the separation and constant dumbing down of culture, and I'm standing in the middle of it," Kanye said during the party, reports the Daily Beast. "So if you know what people say are my lowest moments, those moments where I saw and saw them try to dumb down culture, and I would not allow it to happen on my clock."

I fight in my position of being a very commercial celebrity boyfriend," he explained. "I right to push culture forward every chance I get. 

"And I only frown because paparazzi ask me dumbass s**t all the time, and I think about changing the world, and I think about what I can do to make things better," Kanye added. "And without fourth do, I want to play you guys my new album. It's called Yeezus."

Earlier this week Kanye held a listening party in New York for his latest studio album, which features contributions from the likes of Daft Punk and Bon Iver.

Kanye West's new album 'Yeezus' is due for release on 18th June.
