Kanye West rants about changing the world on ‘Ellen’

SORRY FOR THE REALNESS…

 
What would life be without the occasional Kanye West rant to keep us all woke and entertained at the same damn time? Well, luckily for us living beings the 38-year-old “All Day” rhymer has recently blessed the world with yet another long-winded nugget of informative wisdom during his sit down at the Ellen Degeneres Show.

 
OH YE…

PEEP THIS…

 
On Thursday, Kim Kardashian’s Yeezy Boost sneaker pushing boo took his many talents to Ellen’s daytime talk show where he verbosely gave drop on a number of topics including his social media antics, his ability to see sounds, his plans to change the world, and so much more…

 
When asked if he regretted going TF off on Twitter in the recent past, the Chi-Town rhymer quickly responded with a “nope,” but did however say he probably shouldn’t have hit up Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, for money via the social medium..

 
“Now I understand why he didn’t hit me back,” Kanye told the forever dancing talk show host. “I understand that Zuckerberg doesn’t use Twitter. Even though I have had dinner with him and his wife and told him about how I wanted to help the world and he said he would help me and blah, blah, blah. That’s how it feels. It’s like The Pursuit of Happyness. It’s like you’re trying to sell this bone density machine or something. I feel that if I had more resources, I could help more people. I have ideas that can make the human race’s existence, within our 100 years, better.”

 
AND THAT WAS JUST THE BEGINNING ..

 
Clearly unaware of what she was getting herself and her audience into, Ellen then asked Yeezy to explain his plans to change the world… which unsurprisingly begot a 7 minute long speech about everything under the sun…

 
BIH…

Kanye West rants about changing the world on 'Ellen'

READ THE WHOLE 7-MINUTE ASS RANT BELOW…

We’re in a renaissance period. We’re in a place where people are multi-disciplined artists. Like Steve McQueen who directed 12 Years a Slave. He was considered to just be a photographer, but then he won an Oscar. We’re not in a place where people can only have one career or one profession throughout their entire life. So the exact amount of emotion and color palette and sonics and everything I put into my music, I put them into shoes and they worked.

‘Kanye’s pissing everybody off.’ They try to position that through the media in some way that I’m like, whatever. Whatever your friends might say. ‘I saw Kanye.’ ‘How was he? Did he…?’ I care about people. My dad lived in homeless shelters less than five years ago. To find out he’s a psych major. My mom was the first black female chair of the English department at Chicago State University. I was raised to do something, to make a difference.

You know, I didn’t take the Oscars as a joke. It was funny. It was like the moment. All black actors can talk about the glass ceilings that we’ve dealt with out in this town. And this is the moment. ‘You get your night. Go ahead. Chris Rock is going to do it. Bam. Talk about how many times you’ve been blocked from being able to excel.’ I didn’t take it as a joke. It ain’t no joke, as Rakim said. It ain’t no joke. ‘I used to let the mic smoke, now I slam it and make sure it’s broke.’ That’s what I was raised on—Rakim, Phife Dawg, hip hop, expression. ‘Hip hop started out in the park…’

Everybody’s trying to…I don’t care how much you sold, if you’re playing on radio. Are you connecting? Picasso is dead. Steve Jobs is dead. Walt Disney is dead. Name somebody living that you can name in the same breath as them. Don’t tell me about being likable. We got 100 years here. We’re one race, the human race, one civilization. We’re a blip in the existence of the universe, and we constantly try to pull each other down. Not doing things to help each other. That’s my point. It’s like I’m shaking talking about it. I know it’s daytime TV, but I feel I can make a difference while I’m here.

I feel that I can make things better through my skill set. I am an artist. Five years old, art school Ph.D, Art Institute of Chicago. I am an artist. I have a condition called synesthesia where I see sounds. I see them. Everything that I sonically make is a painting. I see it. I see the importance in the value of everyone being able to experience a more beautiful life.

When I make clothes…It’s funny because I’ll sit there with Obama and Leo’s talking about the environment and I’m talking about clothes and everyone looks at me like, ‘That’s not an important issue.’ But I remember going to school in fifth grade and wanting to have a cool outfit. I called the head of Payless. I’m like, ‘I want to work with you. I want to take all this information that I’ve learned from sitting in all these fashion shows and knocking on all these doors and buying all these expensive clothes, and I want to take away bullying.’

Michael Jackson and Russell Simmons is the reason I was able to go so far in music. There was a time when Michael Jackson couldn’t get his video on MTV because he was considered to be ‘urban.’ The Michael Jackson. So I literally have to be the Michael Jackson of apparel in order to break open the doors of everyone that will come after I’m gone. After I’m dead. After they call me ‘Wacko Kanye.’ [crowd laughter] Isn’t that so funny? That people point fingers at the people who have influenced us the most. They talk the most shit about the people who cared the most. I’m sorry daytime television. I’m sorry for the realness.

 
OH..KAY…

 
Though wordy AF, you can’t deny Kanye’s genius…
