1 year ago
Rapper sounds off on education, fame and fashion
Rapper Kanye West had a lot on his mind earlier today, as he tweeted over 70 messages in a span of three hours.
"I just wanted to share what's been on my mind," he tweeted at 1:22 a.m. on Thursday.
After his agent Cara Lewis quit, West went to Twitter to clarify that indeed he was without representation. (There was no bad blood between Lewis and West. She simply left William Morris Agency for CAA.)
West tweeted that he'd rather have a team to handle his businesses going forward. The rapper wants to “put creatives in a room together with like minds that are all waaaay [sic] doper than me.”
He also talked about his clothing line DONDA, saying he needs to assemble "a team of architects, graphic designers, directors musicians, producers, AnRs, writers, publicist, social media experts... app guys, managers, car designers, clothing designers, DJs, video game designers, publishers, tech guys, lawyers, bankers, nutritionist ... doctors, scientist,teachers.”
'Ye also addressed fashion choices (“here I go again... Yeezy the trend setter or complete fucking fashion victim ... the verdict is still out”) to education ("Spike Jonze and I want to do a Summer school that tries new forms of cuuriculim [sic] … Schools should be designed to prep human beings for real life”) to the late Steve Jobs (“We need to pick up where steve jobs left off”).
West ended his rant with a quote by George Bernard Shaw tweeting, "If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas."
