West says he’s ‘voice of this generation’
LONDON — Kanye West is to music what Michael Jordan was to basketball — at least that’s what West thinks, in his humble estimation.
"I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation, of this decade, I will be the loudest voice," he said on Wednesday. "It’s me settling into that position of just really accepting that it’s one thing to say you want to do it and it’s another thing to really end up being like Michael Jordan."
The rapper-producer said Justin Timberlake had a chance to be music’s MVP, but hasn’t put out enough material.
