Kanye West is furious about youtube. He had a few things to say about it during his Yeezus listening session held in Switzerland this week.
“I hate YouTube because the player is so ugly, and it’s presented in such a terrible manner,” Kanye revealed. “I want everything I do to be presented in an art context, as this is a form of sonic art. I was an artist originally, I have been in art school since I was 5 years old. I got scholarships to three art schools, Art Institute of Chicago, Saint Xavier, and the American Academy of Art, where I ended up going—and I dropped out because I had an assignment where I was supposed to do an ink painting or something, and I would take two weeks to do it, and when I looked at my work, I just felt that I would never be one of the great visual artists of the world.”
Kanye West compares producing techniques to the art of Andy Warhol.
