Kanye West is getting candid.
The superstar rapper sat down with Joe Rogan on ‘The Joe Rogan Experience,’ where he talked about a range of topics, including the reason he “feels bad” listening to his own discography.
His words below:
“There’s only a billion people on the internet. You never think about that. There’s 7 to 8 billion people on earth, but then there’s only a billion people that are influenced and on the internet. It feels like the internet is everything. It’s only like 15, 16, 18 percent of human beings.”
” But … for us to survive, we have to make more human beings. We have family, we have to have food, we have to have shelter. We don’t have to have the internet. We don’t have to have music. That’s a conversation. I mean, it enhances the quality of life — it’s better. But look at the music. Look at the information we’re putting [in] it. I feel bad when I hear rap songs. I feel bad, even the stuff that I just recently put out.”
The ‘Gold Digger’ hitmaker is usually not one to criticize his own work, so this is certainly a change of pace for him. Hopefully some of that self-awareness will translate over to his new music and beyond.
