Kanye West sits down with BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe for a special interview. In part 1, he talks about his most recent album ‘Yeezus’, what he thinks of it, the influence behind it, trying to change the music scene, working with Daft Punk on ‘On Sight’, Rick Rubin, Pusha T, fashion and much more.

  • AV

    Go listen to all my music, it’s the code to self-esteem. It’s the codes of who you are. If you’re a Kanye West fan you’re not a fan of me, you’re a fan of yourself. You will believe in yourself. I’m just the espresso, I’m just the shot in the morning to get you going. To make you believe that you can overcome that situation you’re dealing with all the time.

    So inspirational.

    Honestly this is how I got into Ye. Growing up, I’ve always been pressured to stay within the boundaries of society, and it felt awful. I couldn’t be myself without people telling me to not be myself. When I discovered Ye it was like a smarter, more eloquent me speaking to myself.

    As corny as this sounds, Ye helped me realize that it’s okay to be me, faults and all.

      “You’ve always had the power to go back to Kansas Dorothy”

  • Cantdigit

    This is a classic interview already

    I have a theory that Ye is kinda of autistic or has Aspergers (not sure which one is which) where he’s uncomfortable with looking at people in the eyes, and would rather look around.

    His past interviews has him squirming around and avoiding eye contact with the camera. It’s kinda weird.

    • Greg4422

      I think he’s just crazy as hell

  • Ace

    He’s right about his music having the codes to self-esteem. Nothing makes me feel better about myself than listening to some Yeezy.

    • Greg4422

      yea nothing like uplifting one self esteem like “I ain’t saying she’s a gold digger, but she ain’t fucking with no broke niggas.”

    “the 5%’ers, 10%’ers, 85%’ers and its like the 10%’ers is the media, for the most part, the 85%’ers dont really know what it is, and the 5%’ers that know what it is cant get past the 10%’ers…”

  • Yaz

    the 5% of the population is trying to explain something to the majority (the 85%) but the 10% is holding them back from doing so. his analogy is that he and his crew is the 5%, the media is the 10%, and the people are the 85%.
