Today’s #vintageswag is dedicated to Kanye West. After hearing his interview today with Zane Lowe for BBC UK Radio.
2. Kanye spends 20% of his time doing music and 80% pursuing other creative paths like fashion and architecture.
3. Kanye hates the Paparazzi most because they sell your image ‘badly’ and you don’t get paid for it. He wants to legalize the industry so he can tell his daughter Nori and when her parents didnt get paid for paparazzi pics ( but Kim really does get paid….that’s how her career got to be where it was…but that’s another blog)
4. He’s put in his 10,000 hours pursuing fashion (for those who don’t know a concept from Malcolm Gladwell’s ‘Outliers’), but he’s most frustrated that the fashion world will not let him in and if they do they want to control him.
5. What he’s looking forward to most about his upcoming tour with Kendrick Lamar is having conversations with him.
