Kanye West’s undeniable self-belief shows no sign of waning as he prepares to release his latest album.
The US rapper, who releases Jesus Is King today, declared he was the “greatest human artist of all time” in a chat with Zane Lowe for his Apple Music Beats 1 show.
The 42-year-old also predicted that he will one day be president of the US as he defended his support of Donald Trump.
Kanye, who has attracted criticism for wearing a MAGA hat and saying he and Trump “are both dragon energy”, said he will not be forced into not sharing his opinions and revealed plans for a future presidential run.
He said: “There will be a time when I will be the president of the US and I will remember… any founder that didn’t have the capacity to understand culturally what we were doing.”
And in a typically grandiose statement, he also declared: “I am unquestionably, undoubtedly the greatest human artist of all time. It’s just a fact.”
Kanye also revelaed that during the recording of Jesus Is King, the highly anticipated follow-up to 2018’s Ye, he tried to ban premarital sex among people working on the album.
“There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” he said.
“There were times where I went to people that were working on other projects and said can you just work and focus on this? I thought if we could all focus and fast – families who pray together stay together.”
