Upset that he was falsely quoted as comparing himself to Nelson Mandela, Kanye West took to Twitter Monday to set the record straight.
The Daily Currant previously ran a a fake interview with West, in which the rapper was “quoted” as saying, “I liberate minds with my music.

West took to Twitter today to “address the false stories and noise that have been engineered by the media,” and honored Mandela’s legacy.
