Kanye West wouldn’t be Kanye West without grandiose statements and comparisons. In a recent interview with Saturday Night Online, Ye expressed how truly perilous his Yeezus tour has the potential to be. The centerpiece of his set design is a staggeringly high mountain, on top of which he performs a good chunk of his show. According to him, things get dangerous.

“Like, I’m just giving of my body on the stage; I’m putting my life at risk, literally!” Ye said. “When I think about when I’m on the ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing,’ and ‘Coldest Winter’ moment, like that mountain goes really, really high. And if I slipped… You never know. And I think about it. I think about my family and I’m like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something.”

Um… you be the judge on the validity of such comparisons. Watch the interview below.
