(AllHipHop News) A conversation with Kanye West can go millions of different ways and Kanye consciously chooses its direction. Mr. West gives his most expository interview with W Magazine where he touches on almost releasing his own sextape, Watch The Throne, how he really is a god and copious other quotables.

According to Kanye, the boastful “I Am God” was inspired by an unnamed fashion designer informing Kanye he could not attend any other events at Paris Fashion Week if he wanted to attend his runway:

“So the next day I went to the studio with Daft Punk, and I wrote ‘I Am a God. ‘Cause it’s like, Yo! Nobody can tell me where I can and can’t go. Man, I’m the No. 1 living and breathing rock star. I am Axl Rose; I am Jim Morrison; I am Jimi Hendrix.”

The iconoclastic West continues with his comparisons to impactful cultural heros when discussing his 2011 collaborative album with Jay-Z Watch The Throne:

“It was like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates talking at the same time. You know which one of us was Steve.”

One of the more surprising revelations in the interview is Kanye’s admission that he was planning on releasing his stolen sex tape which was being shopped around last year. While the women in the video is still unknown, Kanye contends that the sextape would not have not tarnished his image but give it a noticable improvement:

“For the most part, I’d rather people have one of those home videos than some of the paparazzi photos that get published. At least I recorded the shit myself. That tape couldn’t have hurt me in any way if it came out—it could only have helped.”

The article also reveals that Kanye is the creative director for an upcoming Jetsons movie and has logged in some time in his home studio in Paris with The Weeknd. Also, West is releasing “a new men’s capsule collection of jeans, T-shirts, and hoodies for a hip French brand” in July according to the article. But the reach of a man who calls Yeezus his “god name” extends furhter than simply music and fashion according to the article:

” He’s plotting to create operas, stores, films, product packaging, amusement parks, and, possibly, entire cities.”
