Kanye West declares he's the 'greatest human artist of all time' and will be President
There's no doubt that Kanye West has never been the most humble guy. He really does have a pretty colossal ego. But when you're the guy who came up with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, maybe you can afford to be a little bit prideful.
Now, however, Kanye might have taken his arrogance a little too far even by his standards. He has just publicly declared himself: "the greatest human artist of all time" and reiterated his desire to be the President of the United States.
Check out Kanye's pro-Trump speech on SNL:
Kanye made his typically-controversial comments in a new interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats One, to promote his upcoming album which is entitled Jesus is King.
At one point in the interview, Kanye stated: "Now I am unquestionably, undoubtedly, the greatest human artist of all time. It’s not even a question at this point. It’s just a fact. For the greatest artist in human existence to put a red hat on was God’s practical joke to all liberals. Like, 'Nooo, not Kanye!'"
He also spoke about his plan to run for president, following in the footsteps of Donald Trump. Kanye stated: "There will be a time when I will be President of the United States and I will remember … any founder that didn’t have the capacity to understand culturally what we’re doing."
Kanye also opened up about his ongoing feud with Drake, stating: "Me and Drake had this disagreement and he refused to speak to me for six months. That was so painful … You cannot be in service to God and be mad at your brother next door…I go to Drake’s house with no security and just leave my number. God is funny. Drake lives four blocks down the street from me. So that shows you that God has a sense of humor."
'Jesus is King' is due to be released on Friday, October 25, with a follow-up scheduled for Christmas.
