In a recent New York Times interview, Ye boasted about his knack for attaching himself to trend-setting movements and noted Jobs.
“I’ve been connected to the most culturally important albums of the past four years, the most influential artists of the past ten years. You have like, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, Nicolas Ghesquière, Anna Wintour, David Stern. I think that’s a responsibility that I have, to push possibilities, to show people: “This is the level that things could be at.” So when you get something that has the name Kanye West on it, it’s supposed to be pushing the furthest possibilities. I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus.” (New York Times)
Back in October, Mr. West reflected on the one-year anniversary of Jobs’ passing.
“WE LOST STEVE A YEAR AGO TODAY…,” he tweeted October 5.
“HE IS ONE OF THE MOST INSPIRING AND INFLUENTIAL HUMAN BEINGS OF OUR EXISTENCE ALONG WITH MICHAEL JACKSON, WALT DISNEY, AND DR. KING.”
“LET’S BE THANKFUL FOR HIS LIFE AND RESPECT HIS LEGACY BY NEVER COMPROMISING ON OUR FUTURE.” (Kanye West’s Twitter)
Recently, G.O.O.D Music’s Big Sean revealed a personal conversation he had with Kanye about becoming a father.
“No, but I’ve talked to Ye about North. I’ve not yet met North,” Sean revealed in an interview. “I heard it was a little baby, too. People trying to talk sh*t about that name. I feel like if I met a pretty girl and came up to me like, ‘Hi, my name is North.’ I’d be like, ‘Oh sh*t.’ We’ve talked briefly and what I’ve said to him is, ‘I remember when you and Kim were just flirting and sh*t and now you got a baby together and in love.’ That’s really tight to sit back and think about. He was like, ‘I know man, right? We was talking about that sh*t in my kitchen.’ I was like, ‘I know, man. Now you got a baby. Life is crazy.’ They’re truly happy — it’s some real sh*t they got.” (“Sway in the Morning”)
