Kanye West has never been one to hold back. On his recent media circuit and "Yeezus Tour," the rapper has been going on "rants," as people are calling them, touching on culture, film, art, literature, and fashion. To be clear, though, they aren't really rants; they're more stream-of-thought monologues or long-form diatribes. No matter what you call them, they've at least offered a deeper level thought than the the inoffensive and safe statements we normally hear from celebs. 

These monologues have sort of become expected of West—people are now on edge waiting to hear what he'll say in his next interview or performance. This weekend, on the eve of West playing two shows at Madison Square Garden in NYC, we expect nothing less. 

Before it all goes down though, this is a look back at all the glorious things West has said about working in fashion, launching his clothing line, Hedi Slimane, bringing leather jogging pants to Fendi six years ago, and so much more. We've chosen some of the best quotes from those and put together A History of Highlights From Kanye West's Best Fashion "Rants."
