Kanye West Says 'He's Unquestionably, Undoubtedly The Greatest Artist Of All Time'
To some, he is a pioneering rapper and fashion icon; to others, he is a controversial figure who flogs overpriced t-shirts. When considering his own career, Kanye West seems to fall into the former camp.
As such, it comes as no surprise that he has claimed to be 'unquestionably, undoubtedly, the greatest human artist of all time'.
The 42-year-old made the bold claim during an interview with radio DJ Zane Lowe.
He said: "I am unquestionably, undoubtedly, the greatest human artist of all time.
"It's not even a question at this point. It's just a fact."
Well that's that then.
The rapper's ninth album, Jesus Is King, is due to be released on Sunday, and he is also releasing a 'Sunday Service album' this Christmas called Jesus Is Born. As you may have guessed from these upcoming releases, Kanye has recently converted to Christianity.
Explaining his new biblical tangent, he said: "Now that I'm in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me.
"I've spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting you know what the Hennessey had done for me."
His devotion to Christ also inspired him to ask his team not to engage in premarital sex while they were working on Jesus Is King. Moreover, his Christianity has inspired him to kiss and make up with fellow musician Drake.
He said: "Me and Drake had this disagreement and he refused to speak to me for six months.
"That was so painful. You cannot be in service to God and be mad at your brother next door. I go to Drake's house with no security and just leave my number.
"God is funny. Drake lives four blocks down the street from me. So that shows you that God has a sense of humour."
He added that his conversion meant he was 'no longer a slave' before dropping the bombshell that he will one day be the President of the United States.
He said: "There will be a time when I will be President of the United States and I will remember any founder that didn't have the capacity to understand culturally what we're doing."
