Words and Wisdoms by Kanye Omari West & New Song "God Level" in adidas Campaign


KANYE ON KANYE
"Respect my trendsetting abilities. Once that happens, everyone wins."
"I am so credible and so influential and so relevant that I will change things."
"I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture."
"I will go down as the voice of a generation."

"Come on now! How could you be me and want to be someone else?"
"I am Warhol! I am the number one most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney, Nike, Google."
"People are going to look at this interview and say, 'I don’t like Kanye. Look, he looks mad. I don’t like his teeth.'"
"I’m the No. 1 living and breathing rock star. I am Axl Rose; I am Jim Morrison; I am Jimi Hendrix."
"When someone comes up and says something like, 'I am a god,' everybody says 'Who does he think he is?' I just told you who I thought I was. A god. I just told you."
"I've reached a point in my life where my Truman Show boat has hit the painting."
[On his impulsive behaviour] "It’s only led me to complete awesomeness at all times. It’s only led me to awesome truth and awesomeness. Beauty, truth, awesomeness."


KANYE ON WOMEN
[On Kim Kardashian] "I just see like, an amazing person that I’m in love with that I want to help."
"Kate Upton ain’t Marilyn Monroe, Kim is Marilyn Monroe, you know that."
"I get to represent somebody I don’t think is getting represented right now. The regular dude: the guy who believes in God but still likes pussy."
"I feel like the type of girl I would be with is a fellow superhero."
"Look at the drive that people have to get sex — to dress like this and get a haircut and be in the club in the freezing cold at 3 A.M., the places they go to pick up a girl. If you can focus the energy into something valuable, put that into work ethic ..."
[From Bound 2] "She asked me what I wished for on my wishlist… have you ever asked your bitch for other bitches?"

KANYE ON FASHION
[On his outfits from the late-2000s] "Yeah, kill self. That’s all I have to say. Kill self."
"If you don’t make Christmas presents, meaning making something that’s so emotionally connected to people, don’t talk to me."
"Don’t nobody care about what Obama wearing. You care about the sweatshirt I got on because I know you like, 'That sweatshirt rocks!'"
"No flip flops for black dudes. I don’t care where you at."
"There are people who dress better than me, just not many celebrities. I think I have leeway because I'm a rapper and I'm black. I think fashion people expect less of black people."

KANYE ON HIS MUSIC
[On 808s & Heartbreak, written after the death of his mother] "Great art comes from great artists. There’s a bunch of people that are hurt that still couldn’t have made the album that was super-polarizing and redefined the sound of radio."
"I am a black new wave artist."
"I am in the lineage of Gil Scott-Heron, great activist-type artists."
"As a man I am flawed, but my music is perfect."
"My greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live."
"Don't ask me what I think the best song of last year was, because my opinion is the same as most of America's. It was Gold Digger."
"Rap is the new rock and roll. We the rock stars… We the rock stars, and I’m the biggest of all of them."

KANYE ON THE COMPETITION
"I will completely bow to anybody I respect."
"When I think of competition it's like I try to create against the past. I think about Michelangelo and Picasso, you know, the pyramids."
"Look at Gaga. She’s the creative director of Polaroid. I like some of the Gaga songs. What the f*** does she know about cameras?"

KANYE IN PHILOSOPHY AND POLITICS
"You can’t look at a glass half full or empty if it’s overflowing." Twitter, 2010
[On his line "Everything I’m not made my everything I am"]: "In my humble opinion, that's a prophetic statement. Gandhi would have said something like that."
"I believe that utopia is actually possible—but we're led by the least noble, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest, and the most political. So in no way am I a politician—I'm usually at my best politically incorrect and very direct."
"George Bush doesn’t care about black people."

KANYE ON RACE
"I don’t know if this is statistically right, but I’m assuming I have the most Grammys of anyone my age, but I haven’t won one against a white person."
"White-people food? You know what it is. You never ate fried chicken and said, 'This tastes white.'"

KANYE ON CRITICS
"You know, if Michael Jordan can scream at the refs, me as Kanye West, as the Michael Jordan of music, can go and say, 'This is wrong.'"
[On a four star review from Vibe magazine]: "A horrible album with just Jesus Walks on it is a four! C’mon dog, the demo version was a five! You need to rate it again, but you’ll have to create a new rating system."
"What if you did music, and someone else could come in and change your words around and then release it to the radio? That's how interviews are!"



adidas has released a new commercial for "The Dream: all in or nothing" campaign, and the song featured in it is a new song from Kanye West. The title is unclear—although we have high hopes it's called "God Level" by the number of times it's said—the percussion and heavy hitting production sounds similar to some of the songs found on his last album, Yeezus. Towards the end of the song, Kanye says, "You see sharks in the water and they try to do nothing but put cocks in your daughter," a line as jarring as the production itself.

The video features notable soccer stars such as Lionel Messi, Dani Alves, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Luis Suárez, Xavi, Jordi Alba, Mesut Özil, Robin van Persie, and David Villa. The players show off their skills (and shoes), set to the new Kanye song. "The Dream: all in or nothing" campaign leads into the 2014 World Cup in Brazil later this summer.

This marks Kanye's first official collaboration with adidas since announcing his decision to sign with the sneaker brand last fall. His first adidas collection is expected to drop in September. And of course, Kanye will be getting married to Kim Kardashian later today.

This applies to so many things in this post:

Does anybody really pay any attention to him anymore?
Most of the things he puts out now flops compared to what he could've done 5 years ago.

It's funny how her grabbed at the Miley letra in by claiming they had recorded a Black Skinhead remix and then never released it. Obviously he wanted to be linked to what's hot at the moment

gaberone 24th-May-2014 02:34 pm (UTC)
Yeezus is genius though and maybe peasants weren't huge fans but it was critically acclaimed. I mean Lou fucking Reed loved it. MBDTF is perf. and no one even disagrees.
830guy 24th-May-2014 03:14 pm (UTC)
His "artistry" is being overshadowed by all the shit that comes out of his mouth and all his antics.
mots_inutiles 24th-May-2014 03:24 pm (UTC)
This is the thing that I actually like about Kanye:

In his public persona, yes, he's unlikeable. He's egotistical, sometimes he says very self-centered things that are clearly to get attention, and he nearly always comes across as self-centered.

His music, on the other hand, is really the one place where he can come across as humble, admit to his flaws, be scared, and talk about being hurt. He hardly EVER does that in public. Ever. And I think, honestly, when he's singing about "being a god" which is something he'd NEVER do 10 years ago - he's doing it because he's at this place in his life now, he's gotten so far, and he's doing it so you can sing it too.

And that's what I have to say.
divafit 24th-May-2014 03:51 pm (UTC)
he actually said that it wasn't a skkknhead remix but an entirely new track, which I'm assuming is somehow relevant to the album he intends to release this year
getmeadoctor 24th-May-2014 04:30 pm (UTC)
he's releasing an album this year and that song is going to be on it.
also, pls check yourself, kanye is not madonna.

Thank you.

Wow, that part where he talks about how he didn't get why women don't like him, and that they should all throw themselves at him because he's the perfect supreme gentleman apparently... Creepy fucker.

Is this for real right now? So creepy. He sounds like a movie villain.
zeldazonked 24th-May-2014 02:09 pm (UTC)
Honestly, if I didn't know better I'd think this was an audition for a Bret Easton Ellis movie.
splatney 24th-May-2014 01:46 pm (UTC)
By the way, look at all of the disgusting comments directed towards "Jane Doe". I know that you can't expect better from youtubers but honestly...

I'm guessing they're all lonely neckbeards from 4chan.
londonshowers 24th-May-2014 01:47 pm (UTC)
I do not feel one bit sorry for this kid after watching this vid, pathetic and disguisting!

oh another entitled asshole goes berserk and the media will desperately try to explain ~why.
saintssin 24th-May-2014 01:56 pm (UTC)
This psychotic piece of shit is so disconnected from reality. I don't want people like this dead. I want them tortured. I wish he could be brought back and tortured for the next 80 years.
jessepinkman 24th-May-2014 01:56 pm (UTC)
Dude could have tried online dating.

Though I wouldn't wish that on any woman
fatbom 24th-May-2014 01:58 pm (UTC)

this pretentious little shit thinks he's right out of an art film oh my god

sociopath
saintssin 24th-May-2014 02:02 pm (UTC)
And you just fucking know his favorite fucking book is The Catcher in the Rye. Self-important piece of shit.

I'm surprised he wasn't wearing fedora in his video. **

Damn since when did sexually frustrated nerds start taking their anger to murderous levels?! Dude's not even bad looking but he seems beyond creepy and shy and awkward and psychotic.

And he died a virgin.
wetnasty 24th-May-2014 02:15 pm (UTC)
This is like the creepiest thing ever.


Since when does the perfect gentleman think about murdering people....

sevenbeat 24th-May-2014 02:23 pm (UTC)
The dumbest piece of shit ever. How fucking pathetic. Girls probably didn't fuck with him because he sounds like the villain intro to an RPG fantasy video game on a Nintendo console.

He probably plays Magic cards in his spare time.

Truly sickening. I hope all ONTDers in Isla Vista/the surrouding area are safe and sound.

What the fuck.... As someone said earlier, he looks like a movie villain. Disgusting narcissistic piece of shit.
shesceltic 24th-May-2014 02:38 pm (UTC)
So disturbed right now. Can you even say someone like this needed support mentally? He was just a disgusting self obsessed little cockroach. No sympathy.
syvlie0o0 24th-May-2014 02:44 pm (UTC)
Women probably sensed that he was A FUCKING PSYCHO.
crashh_world 24th-May-2014 02:55 pm (UTC)
He talks kind of like Sebastian from Cruel Intentions. What a pathetic shit. Why do men thing they are entitled to everything.
mjfan4lyfe 24th-May-2014 03:01 pm (UTC)
super extreme case of nice guy syndrome. ugh.

this monster had to take innocent people with him
hunnichild 24th-May-2014 03:01 pm (UTC)
I couldn't make it past 1:40. There's something seriously fucked about a person who says "I've been through college for two and a half years" and follows it up with complaining about being a virgin. Bitch, it's college not Afghanistan, you haven't been through shit and sex isn't the reward you get for having the privilege of getting a higher education. He may be dead, but I'm not going to continue to watch this video and give him the validation and deification he so clearly craved. I'm sure the media will take care of that.
blumeii 24th-May-2014 03:20 pm (UTC)
i bet the neckbeards on reddit are gonna treat him like a martyr
handsdowntoo 24th-May-2014 03:35 pm (UTC)
Holy fuck. This is so psychotic it sounds like a spoof to me but its not. This kids parents should have had some clue he was fucking insane.
wingslapped 24th-May-2014 03:58 pm (UTC)
D: He sounded entitled. He talked about fairness, but life isn't fair. Women and men aren't required to like someone back.
divafit 24th-May-2014 03:59 pm (UTC)
this melodramatic poe-reading Gregg sulkin lookalike really needed his ass beat when he was younger

and he literally placed his ENTIRE life and OTHERS lives on fucking dating and sex, how intelligent and enlightened

"White-people food? You know what it is. You never ate fried chicken and said, 'This tastes white.'"

Reminds me...Went to an upscale white owned BBQ place...worst food ever. Everything did indeed taste white.

Upscale BBQ? Da fuq?

Wtf is upscale BBQ?
crackedbelljar 24th-May-2014 04:02 pm (UTC)
They just opened one of those across the street from me in Kansas City, MO. WE ARE KNOWN FOR BBQ- I want my cheap bbq from a hole in the wall not some upscale white twist on sweet meat.
