Kanye West is once again making headlines for referring to himself as the number one biggest rock star on the planet during an interview session with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe.
We all know Kanye doesn’t like the media or the press so for him to do this interview is quite surprising, but then we realize it was just another session for him to credit himself for being the musical genius that he is.
One can argue that Kanye West has the right to be as cocky as he is because he does shift a lot of records when it comes to entire album sales along with constant sold-out arenas worldwide. He’s definitely proved himself as a rapper.
But this interview right here was simply set up for Kanye to do another ranting session – at least that’s how it’s coming across to us.
In the preview clip from Monday’s interview, Kanye can be heard raising his voice at Zane – who is only sitting two feet away from him:
“I’m the number one rock star on the planet. No flip-flops for black dudes. I know how to make ‘perfect,’ but that’s not what I’m here to do.”
There’s no denying he’s a great artist and very creative when it comes to performing on stage with visualisations, etc. BUT… when you become too cocky and constantly have these outbursts on how you are the greatest and best, it starts to overshadow your music.
Kanye West’s last album Yeezus was called his “worst effort” on any of his records to date, having also being beaten out by J. Cole‘s Born Sinner in every week of charting excluding the first week sales.
Aren’t number one “rock stars” supposed to be beating their competition as opposed to being below them? Pahaha! Kanye, just go look after North West or su’in. You’re doing too much.
