Kanye West is breaking his media silence again.  This time with W Magazine , who caught up with Ye in Paris when he was doing some fashion rounds and recording his album Yeezus.  The interview took place in installments in the last couple of months, and lets just say Ye had ALOT to say.  From talking about the inspiration for his record ‘I Am A God”, to talking about how he almost leaked his very own sex tape, WTT, his ego and a whole lot more.  Here are some of the excerpts from the interview.

On the song I Am A God:

West was informed that he’d be invited to a widely anticipated runway show only on the condition that he agree not to attend any other shows. “So the next day I went to the studio with Daft Punk, and I wrote ‘I Am a God,’?” West says. “Cause it’s like, Yo! Nobody can tell me where I can and can’t go. Man, I’m the No. 1 living and breathing rock star. I am Axl Rose; I am Jim Morrison; I am Jimi Hendrix.” West is not smiling as he says this, and his voice is getting louder with each sentence. “You can’t say that you love music and then say that Kanye West can’t come to your show! To even think they could tell me where I could and couldn’t go is just ludicrous. It’s blasphemous—to rock ’n’ roll, and to music.”

“I made that song because I am a god,” he says finally. He laughs for a second, then stops. “I don’t think there’s much more explanation. I’m not going to sit here and defend shit. That shit is rock ’n’ roll, man. That shit is rap music. I am a god. Now what?”

On His Ego:

“On one end, I try to scale it back,” he says. “Because I don’t want to close any of the doors needed to create the best product possible. But my ego is my drug. My drug is, ‘I’m better than all you other motherfuckers. Kiss my ass’?”

On almost leaking his own sex tape:

For the most part, I’d rather people have one of those home videos than some of the paparazzi photos that get published,” he says. “At least I recorded the shit myself. That tape couldn’t have hurt me in any way if it came out—it could only have helped.” He finally decided against releasing it, but don’t be surprised if he changes his mind. “Now, I just do exactly what I want, whenever I want, how the fuck I want,” West says. “?‘Fuck you’ is my message.”

On Watch The Throne:

“It was like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates talking at the same time. You know which one of us was Steve.”

On how seriously you should take him:

“You should only believe about 90 percent of what I say. As a matter of fact, don’t even believe anything that I’m saying at all. I could be completely fucking with you, and the world, the entire time.”
