Kanye West Reveals His ‘Idol,’ Blasts Collaborators on Twitter
Kanye West has been very busy on his Twitter account. Usually, it stays dormant for months. On Saturday (Jan.9), the rapper-producer tweeted out two significant messages to his fans and, presumedly, his collaborators on the 'Swish' album.
In one tweet, the G.O.O.D. Music leader posted a 15-second video of the late Apple founder Steve Jobs with the caption, “My Idol.” Looking at the clip, it appears that West is watching the CNN documentary, Man in the Machine, which had its encore presentation on Saturday (Jan. 9).
West has always said that he wanted to be looked at like “the Steve Jobs” of fashion. It’s clear that he’s studying his muse closely as he continues his work in that field.
Meanwhile, West wrote another cryptic tweet to his collaborators. Now that he announced the release date for his Swish album, it’s crunch time.
The 38-year-old producer made it clear that he's not playing around when it comes to creating a quality product for his fans. So he tweeted out, "I have no interest in working with anyone who is too important or too good or too traditional to take a call at 3am."
We don't know who West is directed this message to but it's duly noted. Granted, at 3AM, most people are usually asleep but if Yeezy calls, you don't want it to go to voicemail. We are just saying.
In the meantime, Yeezy Season has officially arrived. Last Friday (Jan. 8), West dropped a new song called "Real Friends" featuring Ty Dolla $ign. We can't wait to hear what he's bringing to the masses in the coming weeks.
