Kanye West took an hour to get things off his chest during an intimate interview with BBC 1’s Zane Lowe. Broken down into a quartet of installments, part three shows G.O.O.D. Music’s general speaking more on his music and his frustrations with the fashion industry.
“Go listen to all my music. It’s the code to self-esteem,” he said. “If you’re a Kanye West fan, you’re not a fan of me. You’re a fan of yourself. You will believe in yourself. I’m just the espresso. I’m just the shot in the morning to get you going to make you believe you can overcome that situation that you’re dealing with all the time.”
