Kanye West breathes fire on the cover of Interview magazine’s February 2014 issue.
Here’s what the 36-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag, where he was interviewed by 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen:
On people trying to silence him: “People are strategically trying to do things to mute my voice in some way or make me look like I’m a lunatic or pinpoint the inaccuracies in my grammar to somehow take away from the overall message of what I’m saying.”
On the “Bound 2″ video with Kim Kardashian: “I think people are afraid of dreams, and that video is one of the closest things to the way that dreams look and feel, or the way joy looks and feels, with the colors.”
On taking risks: “Well, all we have is today. You know, the past is gone, and tomorrow is not promised… The risk for me would be in not taking one—that’s the only thing that’s really risky for me.”
On success: “Only one of two things can happen: either I’m gonna be right or I’m gonna be wrong. But if you look at the past 10 years, I’ve been right.”
