Kanye West gave what was quite possibly his most entertaining interview thus far to BBC One's Zane Lowe. The interview lasted for approximately an hour, and while it briefly touched on Yeezus and Ye's upcoming tour with Kendrick Lamar, the majority of the time, much to Lowe's chagrin, was spent discussing the passion that Kanye holds for advancing and contributing to culture via fashion.
While Lowe attempted to steer the conversation back to music several times, Yeezy adamantly stuck to his favorite subjects of creative design and sartorial artistry. He gave the reasons why his clothing line failed, citing both a lack of capital and a lack of faith in his skills and passion. He also fired shots straight at Hedi Slimane, confirming that both "I Am a God" and "Black Skinhead" were created using the frustration that he held after being rejected from attending Slimane's first Saint Laurent runway show.
The entire interview is probably the most entertaining hour you'll have all week, but we rounded up the best of the best for your reading pleasure.
