Kanye West On The Taylor Swift Incident, Tupac, The Grammys And More

"But I think that when I compare myself to Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Howard Hughes or whoever, it's because I'm trying to give people a little bit of context to the possibilities that are in front of me, as opposed to putting me in the rap category that the Grammys has put me in. In no way do I want to be the next any one of them. But I am the first me." West added that he encounters a similar kind of marginalization at the Grammys where this year his latest record, Yeezus, notched just two nominations , for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song for "New Slaves"as he does in his other endeavors, such as his forays into fashion. As he's stated, or shouted ,in previous interviews , bringing his various ideas to fruition hasn't come easy, despite his towering success. And while he said his goals as an artist have never necessarily been about race, http://whitneykvoh.sosblogs.com/Blog-b1/Kim-Kardashian-Dispels-Versailles-Wedding-Rumor-Talks-Mom-Khloe-b1-p15.htm West noted that roadblocks spring up because of the color of his skin. "[P]eople forget that Michael Jackson had to fight to get on MTV because he was considered to be an urban artist," he said. "This was, like, the greatest pop star of all time, and they told him, 'We're not gonna play your video because it doesn't fit our format.'" Still, reference West has no intention of letting anything slow him down in the future. He's certain that he'll be able to find the success he's had as a musician in whatever field he chooses. "I'm like a broadcaster for futurism, for dreamers, for people who believe in themselves," West said.
