By this time it would almost be news if Kanye West didn’t make an absurdly self-aggrandizing statement about himself. But until that happens, we’re going to have to keep reporting stuff like this – at a recent concert in Paris, West delivered a monologue in which he compared himself to several of the world’s most influential individuals, including legendary painter Pablo Picasso and Apple founder Steve Jobs.
Perhaps of greater interest is Kanye’s mention of “new sh*t” in the works (second video), which may back up those rumors from a while ago regarding his next studio album.
You can see a couple videos taken at the concert below that outline his various comments. Kanye West’s comparisons can be heard at the 5:00 mark of the first video.
It’s too bad cell phone cameras didn’t exist during Picasso’s heyday, isn’t it?
