XXL Lists

Kanye West quotes about Yeezys, his mother and his wedding make the list.

XXL has created a list titled "32 Of The Most Amazing Quotes From Kanye West In 2014 (So Far).”

The list features several quotes from Kanye West’s 2014, including the following excerpt about Yeezus.

"Yeezus, though, was the beginning of me as a new kind of artist,” West said. "Stepping forward with what I know about architecture, about classicism, about society, about texture, about synesthesia—the ability to see sound—and the way everything is everything and all these things combine, and then starting from scratch with Yeezus … That’s one of the reasons why I didn’t want to use the same formula of starting the album with a track like 'Blood on the Leaves,' and having that Nina Simone sample up front that would bring everyone in, using postmodern creativity where you kind of lean on something that people are familiar with and comfortable with to get their attention.”

Another quote that is listed features Kanye West talking about his career, mistakes and accomplishments.

“There’s been some ups and downs,” he said. "I made some mistakes and I’ve made some accomplishments. There’s only one thing I regret. There’s only one thing I wish I could change out of everything that’s ever happened. I wish that my mother could’ve met my daughter.”

One other quote on the list features Kanye West speaking about Annie Leibovitz.

“This is pissing my girl off during the honeymoon,” he said. “Annie Leibovitz pulled out right before the wedding—maybe she was scared about the idea of celebrity. … But I still wanted my wedding photos to look like Annie Leibovitz. Now, can you imagine telling someone who just wants to Instagram a photo, the No. 1 person on Instagram, that we need to work on the color of the flowered wall? But the fact that the No. 1 most liked photo has this certain aesthetic on it was a win for what the mission is—of raising the palate.”

    Yes. Kanye West is a douchebag. Yes. Many of Us Hate His Guts. But at the end of the day he is very creative and innovative for music and urban fashion. At the end of the day, Hip-Hop in general is funny. It reminds me of this book I read called " Flows - Verses That Count". It basically points out key characteristics that all the top artists of today all share. I'd call it the Wiki-Leaks of songwriting. Alot of the music is embedded with marketing tactics. More than we think. Its hard to explain but pretty interesting. here is the link if anyone is wondering : http://alltheseflows.co/modernrap
