Love him or hate him, Kanye West is at his peak as a musician, producer, and fashion expert. The Louis Vuitton Don recently sat down with Zane Lowe and the BBC Radio for a lengthy interview. Mr. West opens his mind and really sheds some light on who he is as a person as well as a creator, with 3 segments to the interview Kanye takes almost an hour to touch on different subjects from MBDTF being “perfection,” to fashion, his sense and his future as a designer.
Kanye talks about how his music is perceived lately andhis thought process behind his new album Yeezus is him “creating whats in his head” as he puts it. It is really hard to harbor animosity towards him after you hear the first 10 minutes of this genius speak.
After all the bad press he is constantly scrutinized for, I give a lot of respect to Kanye West for opening up to the world like this and showing us a glimpse of his genius. Whether you think his music is garbage, or you view him as an icon, Mr. West has a method to his madness, and it sure works in his favor.
EDIT: After the interview aired, Jimmy Kimmel poked some fun at Kanye and did a spoof of the interview. Causing Kanye to lash out at Jimmy. See that here at Pitchfork
