Kanye West was interviewed by 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen for Interview magazine, so of course it was filled with notable quotables.
McQueen managed to get some great answers out of Yeezy (despite not asking him about that Confederate flag flavored merchandise). The G.O.O.D. Music honcho spends a good chunk of Q&A stressing how much of an artist he really is and sounds quite rational compared to his recent publicity run.
Photographer Steven Klein also took some interesting photos of West that he basically flipped into modern artwork that the "Bound 2" rapper will surely appreciate.
