Kanye West has told the New York Times that he is the next Steve Jobs and will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars.

Here is the quote from an interview with West:

Yeah, respect my trendsetting abilities. Once that happens, everyone wins. The world wins; fresh kids win; creatives win; the company wins.

I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump. I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it’s like when Biggie passed and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z.

I’ve been connected to the most culturally important albums of the past four years, the most influential artists of the past ten years. You have like, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, Nicolas Ghesquière, Anna Wintour, David Stern.

I think that’s a responsibility that I have, to push possibilities, to show people: “This is the level that things could be at.” So when you get something that has the name Kanye West on it, it’s supposed to be pushing the furthest possibilities. I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus.

The difference between Kanye & Steve: Steve didn't go around telling the world he would be the next Einstein.

This cotton picker does not know how to compare apples to Apples...YOU ARE IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY! You have to become greater than Michael, Elvis or The Beatles. Your likeness applies to little mofos with their pants half-off and biotches that twerk ONLY...if so. YOU HAVE TO START BLEACHING YOUR SKIN FOR AMERICA TO TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY.
