Listen: Kanye West’s Full Interview With Zane Lowe Is The Best Thing You’ll Hear Today

Sure, Drake’s Nothing Was The Same has officially been distributed and Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience Part 2 of 2 is streaming on iTunes but the audio of Kanye West’s full interview with Zane Lowe is now out courtesy of MissInfo and it is amazing! As expected, it’s an earful…but not in the Yeezus way. It’s a Kanye West rant on steroids about giving Fendi the finger for knocking down his leather jogging pants idea to wanting “Brand Yeezy” to adorn the entire world in Kanye-made uniforms to spewing quotables like “We culture! We the rockstars!” and “IT’S BEEN LIKE THAT FOR A MINUTE, HEDI SLIMANE!” (Hedi Slimane, the creative director of Saint Laurent, that is.) But then there are the tender moments: talking about his new bundle of joy North West, saluting big bro Jay Z, complimenting future tour mate Kendrick West and how Kim Kardashian gave him something that was hard to find. You can forward your thoughts about calling him just a “rapper” to the recycle bin after listening to this hour-long gem below. UPDATE: Part 2 of Zane Lowe’s interview is now up.
