I was on my way to bed when I scrolled through my timeline and saw that it was almost time for Kanye West to appear on the Jimmy Kimmel Show. For those of you who don’t know a few weeks ago, Kimmel did a Kanye West spoof and Kanye West went ballistic. You can check that part of the saga here. He appeared last night on the Jimmy Kimmel Show to clear the air and then went into one of the most epic rants about society, fashion, music, being a genius and why Kim Kardashian deserves a star in Hollywood. I pulled an article from Necole Bitchie this morning that h as the best quotes from Kanye’s sit down with Jimmy Kimmel, check it out below.

“I’m totally weird, and I’m totally honest and I’m totally inappropriate at times. The thing is, if I was to say I wasn’t a genius, I’d be lying to you and myself”

“I wouldn’t say I’m a rap artist, I’m more of a messenger, than a rapper, so when you say rap beef it kind of undermines it.”

“They said something about they not going to put my girl on the Walk of Fame because she’s a reality star. It’s like people are so dated in that modern. There is no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t have a star on the Walk of Fame. It’s ridiculous concepts.”

“My grandfather loved Ali til he died and my grandmother hated Ali. So ya gonna love me, or ya gonna hate me but I’mma be me.”

“Media does everything they can to break artists spirits and I do everything to break media.”

“[On the toilet] is where I think of the best sh-t.”

“There’s no black guy at the end of the runway in Paris in all honesty {Kimmel: What about the Steve Harvey collection?} No! There’s no Steve Harvey collection. No extra buttons on jackets or anything like that.”

“It’s not about racism anymore, it’s classism. Like Paula Deen, she was old school with it. They like, we don’t do it like that anymore, that’s racist. We classist now. Classism is when they try to say, ‘You’re a rapper…your girl is on a reality show so you’re not up here with us. We’re old money.’ It’s snobbery and I’m not into all that snobbery, seriously. All we want to do is to make awesome stuff. All we want is a real shot.’


Unapologetic Kanye, just like always.

“I refuse to follow the rules that society has set up and the way that they control people with low self esteem, with improper information, with branding, with marketing. I refuse to follow those rules. It’s about truth. It’s about information. It’s about awesomeness. And the only luxury is time, time that you spend with your family. That’s the only luxury, so the concept of luxury is improper to me.”

“The way paparazzi talk to me and my family is disrespectful. We bring something of joy to the world. When people hear my music, they have a good time. And I should be respected as such when I walk down the street. Don’t ask me a question about something you saw in the tabloids. Don’t try to antagonize me cause you know what, it’s not safe for you in the zoo. Never think that I’m not from Chicago for one second…”

“You do help me get money, paparazzi. You show people how fresh my outfit is … that helps me influence people.”
