Steve McQueen Interviewed Kanye West

Last month, Kanye hopped on the phone with 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen to do a Q&A for Interview magazine. The interview is an interesting one because even though Kanye is sure to hit all of his well-worn talking points, his respect for McQueen and his work gives the conversation a unique tone that I don’t think you get when Ye is talking to a journalist. Just a couple of geniuses shooting the shit about art.

Here are five Kanye quotes from the piece, presented with zero context.

“I just close my eyes and act like I’m a 3-year-old.”

“I went to art school from the time I was 5 years old. I was, like, a prodigy out of Chicago.”

“…I’ve got my astronaut family.”

“Look at these 20,000 people screaming, and then tell me I don’t deserve to design a T-shirt.”

“At that moment, I forgot that I was supposed to wear baggy jeans because I’m black.”

Bonus:

“I met with Deepak Chopra, right? I was supposed to go back the next day, but I told my girlfriend that I wasn’t going to go. Because you know what gets me calm, baby? Success. And I went in and finished my Adidas deal instead. I felt so Zen-ed out by that.”
