Kanye West is never short on words. The rapper-producer recently appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and went on an epic 8-minute stream of consciousness rant about trying to save humanity.
When Ellen asked Yeezy if he regrets any of the tweets that he has posted on his Twitter account, he said, “Nope.”
Kanye then went on to clarify that everything that he’s trying to do whether it’s in music or fashion, is to help humanity. “It’s like you’re trying to sell this bone density machine,” he explains, referring to Will Smith’s character in The Pursuit of Happiness. “I have ideas that can make the human race existence within our 100 years better… period.”
The Chicago native then went on to explain his passion for fashion and why he has to break barriers so others can be able to create in the same industry. “I have to be the Michael Jackson of apparel to break open the doors of everyone that will come after I’m gone,” he said, referring to MJ’s fight to have his music videos get played on MTV in the early 1980s.
“I’m sorry daytime television, I’m sorry for the realness,” he told the audience.
No need to apologize Kanye. We understand that you are a very passionate guy who wants to change the world.
