The Many Faces of Ye

I love a good Kanye West rant. They’re typically filled with venomous quotes that seem far off-topic, but because Yeezy’s a genius, couldn’t be more spot-on.

From Shakespeare to Deepak Chopra to the star of “12 Years A Slave,” Yeezy’s comparisons have become more entertaining than Miley Cyrus’ dancing bones! Check out Yeezy’s epic comparisons.

*Spoiler Alert*: There will be laughter.

2. Google


“I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney. Nike. Google. Now who’s going to be the Medici family and step up and let me have more?”

“And I kind of saw that side of what it was as a creative to be free, as the parallel of the main character in ’12 Years A Slave.’ And then when it was taken away from me it felt like what it felt like as a creative to be enslaved, to have all of these ideas for product.”

4. “Glitch” From “Wreck It Ralph”

"Glitch" From "Wreck It Ralph"

“Have y’all ever seen Wreck-It Ralph? You remember how that girl in there—the people that was racing? She was the glitch. You’re telling me they don’t look at me like the motherf***ing glitch? You’re telling me people don’t look at Kanye West like the glitch?”

5. Deepak Chopra

Deepak Chopra

“One cold night in October/Pu— had me floatin’/Feel like Deepak Chopra/Pu— had me dead…”

6. Anna Wintour

Anna Wintour

“I’ve been connected to the most culturally important albums of the past four years, the most influential artists of the past ten years. You have like, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, Nicolas Ghesquière, Anna Wintour, David Stern.”

7. Jay Z

Jay Z

“Jay Z is more realized than me. More of his dreams and aspirations have come true. You don’t realize I am so frustrated. Like, I’ve got so much I want to give and I’ve got a million people telling me why I can’t do it.”

8. Leonardo DaVinci

Leonardo DaVinci

“When I compare myself to Steve Jobs, or Walt Disney…Howard Hughes, David Stern, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Jesus…I’m saying these are my heroes.”

9. Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan

“If Michael Jordan can scream at the refs, me as Kanye West, as the Michael Jordan of music, can go and say, ‘This is wrong.'”

10. Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs

“I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump. I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it’s like when Biggie passed and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z.”

11. Howard Hughes

Howard Hughes

“When I compare myself to Steve Jobs, or Walt Disney…Howard Hughes, David Stern, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Jesus…I’m saying these are my heroes.”

12. David Stern

David Stern

Woops, not this guy, but the highly regarded German artist.

“When I compare myself to Steve Jobs, or Walt Disney…Howard Hughes, David Stern, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Jesus…I’m saying these are my heroes.”

13. Zoo Animal

Zoo Animal

“Everything that people feel is okay to treat celebrities like zoo animals or act like what they’re saying isn’t that serious or their life isn’t that serious or their dreams are not serious.”

14. Jean-Michel Basquiat

Jean-Michel Basquiat

“I am Basquiat.”

15. Picasso


“I am Picasso.”

16. Lebron James

Lebron James

“The Lebron of rhyme. Hard to be humble when you’re stunting on a jumbo-tron.”

17. God


“I know he the Most High, but I am a close high.”

18. Beethoven


“‘I am flawed as a human being, but my music is perfect. You could go back to Beethoven and s***, but as far as this lifetime, though, this is all you got.’

19. Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson

“I’ve got to a point that Michael Jackson did not break down. I have reached the glass ceiling, as a creative person, and I’ve been at it for 10 years. I look around and I say, ‘There’s no one around here in that looks like me. And if they are, they’re quiet as f–k.’ Now we’re seriously like, in a civil rights movement. I’m the number one rock star on the planet!”

20. Willy Wonka

Willy Wonka

“I want to be as unrealistic as possible. The worst thing about me comparing myself to Steve Jobs in that it’s too realistic of an idea. What I need to stay is I’m more like Willy Wonka.”

21. Nike


“I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney. Nike. Google.”

22. Shakespeare



23. Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol

“What I want people to understand about sampling and producing is that it’s really similar to—and I know this is obvious what I’m going to say, because I’m a Black guy so I’m gonna name the ‘most obvious artist in the world’—Warhol, but it’s very similar to the way Warhol would appropriate a Campbell’s Soup can is the way I would sonically appropriate a Ray Charles sample or a Michael Jackson sample.”

24. Michaelangelo


“I wanna create content. I mean, eventually, ten years from now, I just wanna create for the church, period. I’m Christian, I’mma design the new Sistine Chapel.”

25. Jesus


“When I compare myself to Steve Jobs, or Walt Disney… Howard Hughes, David Stern, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Jesus… I’m saying these are my heroes.”

26. Walt Disney

“I’m just a creative. I’m more like, a Walt Disney or something. Like, rap is just a chamber of my thoughts.”
