While in Philadelphia this past Saturday for the Yeezus tour, Kanye West visited 96.5 Wired Philadelphia for an interview in which the self-proclaimed “creative genius” shared about music, life, and of course…being a multi-dimensional innovator. Talking with a passion only Kanye could generate, the demi-god talks about how he’s thankful to have the opportunity to create, how his musical genius was a trailblazer for current exploratory mind-state, and much more. According to the interview, Kanye ranks late Apple founder Steve Jobs directly under his dad and Jesus in terms of inspirations to his life.
West also discusses his current favorite musician who happens to be indie electro-soul singer James Blake. You may remember seeing Blake in a Watch the Throne tour VOYR short nearly two years ago, if not watch below. Great to see that Ye still keeps an ear out for up-and-coming musical talent amid his busy work/design schedule.
