Kanye Covers PAPER Magazine

kanye-paper-april

Kanye graces the new April 2015 issue of PAPER magazine and for the cover story he penned an essay that is ostensibly about the sometimes elusive American Dream. It does touch on that, but like any good Kanye discourse, it’s also all over the place.

Check out a couple of choice quotes below and read the full piece here.

On giving gems to the new generation of artists:

I think it’s so important for me, as an artist, to give Drake as much information as I can, A$AP, Kendrick, Taylor Swift, any of these younger artists as much information as I can to make better music in the future. We should all be trying to make something that’s better.

On kilts:

I paid my dues when I had to wear a kilt in Chicago, and friends would say, “What’s your boy got on?” But there are warriors that have killed people in kilts in the past. Who gets to decide what’s hard and what’s not hard?

On recording music at this stage of his career:

I loved music. I loved it more than I love it now. But I think that can happen with anything. You can live in New York for 10 years and say, “I now want to move to San Francisco.” It’s just harder for me to do music now, period. It’s easier for people who focus on it all day and who are younger in their concept of what they want to do with it.

On him and his TIDAL partners being the Illuminati:

I’m tired of people pinpointing musicians as the Illuminati. That’s ridiculous. We don’t run anything; we’re celebrities. We’re the face of brands. We have to compromise what we say in lyrics so we don’t lose money on a contract.
