Where do we find Kanye West in 2010?I say, “You’re living in the future/ Your present is your past, because I’m always thinking in terms of 2012, 2013, 2014. I see the future.
Album number five is a real 70s Project. I want to go back to my soul roots. You could see that I was trying to push into the digital category - or the white music category - but this was a return to the instrumentation of what made Q-Tip and Wu-Tang connect with people in a more visceral fashion. I’m trying to find the emotion, and deliver ideas where it’s blurred, almost abstracted.
"One of the main things I wish people would understand is that I would do the exact same thing for Taylor. If it were 15 years into Taylor’s career and she makes the most pivotal video of her life and they randomly give the award to someone else. I want to express my empathy and my new found humility that I am sorry for cutting her off. I’m really sorry for that.
I’m considered a racist that should die because I cut her off? A campaign started on Twitter saying, ‘Kanye West is dead’ and a lot of people said ’good.’ But I do understand why America’s apprehensive towards me."
