Kanye West wears many hats: He’s a rapper, a producer, a fashion designer, and a father. But he recently showed off his master curation skills in the latest issue of CR Fashion Book.

That’s right, Kanye has legitimized this title by assembling a selection of artwork inspired by the publication’s “jolie laide” theme—a celebration of unconventional beauty.

The art collection, titled “Blud Rush,” features work by artists including Richard Prince, Cecily Brown, Paul McCarthy, and Anish Kapoor, who Jay Z and Beyoncé are fans of. In the issue, 'Ye prefaced the art selection with an obscure choice of words:

To create an expression is close to innoncence [sic]. Childhood is stolen from you with every judgment made, innocence stolen with it. You go into a room alone and try to collect the pieces of your life and meet your monster.

Everyone has a monster that hunts them—monsters inside and outside. I have fought monsters. And have turned into a complete monster in the midst of the fight.

You can check out "Blud Rush" below, and pick up the latest issue of CR Fashion Book today.
