Kanye West is either a once-in-a-lifetime visionary or delusion-drunken schizophrenic who refuses to seek help. At this point, no one really knows but it’s clear he lives in his own little dark twisted fantasy world where he’s on a different level, mentally, than us all.
Here are Kanye’s most outrageous quotes of all-time. Take a look.
“I’m Walt (Disney)…I’m like Howard Hughes. I’m like David Stern. I’m like Steve Jobs. If anything, that’s a compliment to them. I’m like Michelangelo cause I’m the new version of that” — Breakfast Club interview, 2013
“There’s certain things that black people are the best at and certain things that white people are the best at. Whatever we as black people are the best at, I’m a go get that. Like, on Christmas I don’t want any food that tastes white. And when I go to purchase a house, I don’t want my credit to look black.” — Spin, 2008
“Eve made Adam eat the apple…and ever since then its been illegal to be nekkid…It’s in the Bible” – Breakfast Club interview, 2013

“I feel like I’m one of the more important people in pop culture right now. The Bible had 20, 30, 40, 50 characters in it. You don’t think that I would be one of the characters of today’s modern Bible? And people have their own forms of bibles now. It’s a new day and age” – Rolling Stone Magazine, 2006

“Sometimes people write novels and they just be so wordy and so self-absorbed. I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book’s autograph. I am a proud nonreader of books.” — Reuters, 2009

“I am flawed as a human being. I am flawed as a person. As a man, I am flawed. But my music is perfect!” This is the best you gon’ get ladies and gentlemen in this lifetime, I’m sorry. You could go back to Beethoven and sh-t, but as far as this lifetime, though, this is all you got” – Atlantic City Revel performance, 2012
