Kanye West has called himself the new Steve Jobs ahead of his new album release

LOLWUT - Kanye West says that he is Steve Jobs successor

| Current Affairs News | Posted: Jun 14, 2013 2:29 pm

I don't mind Kanye West's work, but he has taken it a step too far this time stating in an interview with the New York Times that he is the successor to the late Steve Jobs, saying:

I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. 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 was asked if his instinct ever led him astray, for you know, storming on the stage of the MTV Video awards to push Taylor Swift out of the way, where he adds:

 

It's only led me to complete awesomeness at all times. It's only led me to awesome truth and awesomeness. Beauty, truth, awesomeness. That's all it is. I'm assuming I have the most Grammys of anyone my age, but I haven't won one against a white person.

 

West's six solo album, Yeezus is released later today.
