What Kanye Said: "I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation, of this decade. I will be the loudest voice."
When He Said It: During an interview with the Associated Press in 2008
Why It Was Great: Keep in mind that Kanye said this long before he released My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Watch the Throne or Yeezus. He may have a point.
