Following up yesterdays first installment of Kanye West”s BBC Radio 1 interview, the second portion was just released and its just as riveting.
This time around, the No Church in the Wild rapper discusses the importance of empowering both adults and children with the knowledge that all things are possible.
I always felt like I could do anything. Thats the main thing people are controlled by theyre slowed down by their perceptions of themselves. If youre taught you cant do anything, you wont do anything. I was taught I could do everything. And Im Kanye West at age 36. So just watch the next ten years.
As for his drive to succeed, West noted, People think a lot of my motivation is megalomaniac and self-oriented. To the contrary. I just want to help.
I want to be the anchor and the force behind a billion dollar company and after Ive made that billion-dollar step I eventually want to be the anchor of the first trillion-dollar company.
Kanye also expressed dismay over celebrities who rent out their fame for completely unrelated products, i.e. Lady Gagas creative director deal with Polaroid- I like some of the Gaga songs what the f*ck does she know about cameras
