West chats about IKEA and why ‘Fade’ is the next single off of The Life Of Pablo.
Earlier today we previewed Annie Mac’s in-depth Q&A with Kanye West where he revealed that his Glasto 2015 flub put him in a “depressed state.” Now you can hear him talk about the festival, his feelings for Justin “Bon Iver” Vernon (“I love Justin like Kanye loves Kanye”) and more, in full.
He also addresses how Europe respects musicians most as artists, whereas the States treats them more like tabloid headlines, as well as how much he’d like to work with IKEA: “Yo Ikea, allow Kanye to create, allow him to make this thing because you know what, I want a bed that he makes, I want a chair that he makes.”
Kanye’s bid for United States presidency is not off the table, either: “When I talk about the idea of being president, I’m not saying I have any political views. I just have a view on humanity, on people, on the truth. We are numb, we’re numb to 500 kids getting killed in Chicago a year, we’re numb to the fact that it was seven police shootings in the beginning of July. If there is anything that I can do with my time and my day, to somehow make a difference while I’m alive I’m going to try to do it.”
