Kanye Says He's The Most Persecuted Living Celebrity, But Also The Most Successful
Kanye West gave a guest lecture at Oxford University and said he's one of the most persecuted living celebrities, but also one of the most successful.
Kanye West has been doing a lot of press across the pond as he gears up for the release of his forthcoming album So Help Me God.
After the release of his latest single "All Day" Ye spoke to about 350 students at Oxford University's Museum of Natural History. For about 20 minutes, Kanye touched on several topics including Drake, his artistic ambitions, and wanting to be better than Picasso.
But in true Kanye fashion, he also made sure to remind everyone of his cultural dominance and the pressures that comes with his success.
“There’s a Bible saying, ‘No weapon formed against me shall prosper’. Recently I’ve been doing interviews and I’ve had to go back to this verse because I don’t think there’s a living celebrity with more weapons formed against them, but I also don’t think there’s one more prosperous. So what weapons have prospered? The smoke and mirrors of other opinions."
Oxford said video of the lecture will be made available soon, until, read the entire transcript here.
