Kanye West Speaks For 40 Minutes x Compares Himself To Davinci

“Imagine if da Vinci or Michelangelo or Galileo were asked not to think of anything except for the one thing they first became famous for. So da Vinci could only have one idea. For all haters, I’m not saying I’m da Vinci, but I feel it’s right for any human being to compare themselves to anything.”

"Everyone please be completely quiet, because I can literally hear a whisper, and it’ll throw off my stream of consciousness, and the best thing is when I can get my stream of consciousness going that’s when I give the best, illest quotes. Literally, a whisper can throw it off."

"Some of you here probably remember the night the Donda tweets came through me and I started talking about professions that you guys are going into in the future that seemed they had nothing to do with a rapper. But what I was talking about a band of thinkers that could remove religion, race, gender, and politics, and somehow come together to find solutions for a broken planet."

"Particular for the aesthetic driven creatives, we were taught to hide our black fingernail polish and put our head down in the back of the class and not notice out of fear that someone might laugh at one of our ideas - that our idea could become a mockery or a failure in some way. There’s a Bible saying, “No weapon formed against me shall prosper”. Recently I’ve been doing interviews and I’ve had to go back to this verse because I don’t think there’s a living celebrity with more weapons formed against them, but I also don’t think there’s one more prosperous. So what weapons have prospered? The smoke and mirror of opinions.
