The rapper considers himself to be the king of culture for “the next 2000 years,” and compared it to oil, and himself to the Russian leader.
American rapper Kanye West, who recently officially changed his name to Ye, compared himself to Russian President Vladimir Putin while recording the Drink Champs podcast.
The musician and designer said that he collaborates with well-known brands and has a great influence on them.
“Gap, Adidas, Gap – and I run it. I’m Putin. <…> I am like young Putin. <…>I realized that culture is a oil, culture is an energy. And I am the king of culture for the past 20 years and next 2000 years,” West said.
The presenters of the podcast were amused by this comparison and they clarified whether the rapper was referring to the Russian president.
They also reminded Kanye that he is a black guy from Chicago, but West continued to insist on his resemblance to Putin.
Recall that last year, Kanye posted several tweets in which he called himself the new Moses. He also posted a photo of Putin in judo training.
