Kanye West wants to be seen as a servant

23 June 2015, 15:02

Los Angeles - Kanye West wants people to think of him as a ''servant''.

The 38-year-old rapper - who previously compared himself to Jesus in an interview in 2013 - insists he doesn't want to be regarded as a God or a king.

The 'FourFiveSeconds' hitmaker said: ''If you want to put a box and title on me, box me as a servant. I don't want people to look at me as a God, I don't want people to look at me as a king. I don't want people to look at me in terms of how many Grammy's I have. I want you to look at me like the maid, you know, that cleans your house. And I might be a tough maid, but if I come to you and say, 'Termites', you better f**king believe me. Because I saw the termites.''

The 'All Day' rapper - who has two-year-old daughter North with pregnant wife Kim Kardashian West - shot to fame in 2004 with the hit single 'Jesus Walks' before becoming mainstream with songs including 'Gold Digger' and 'Stronger' but his latest album 'Yeezus' was less well-received and he's claimed it's because it features music too intelligent for the average person.

He explained to Sunday Times' Culture magazine: '''Yeezy' was almost a protest. It was like a long lecture, it wasn't gym class. Everybody wants gym class, and McDonald's for lunch. This was definitely some vegetables. It had almost started to get too easy. I had to make it harder for myself so that I could deliver a better product. Because the product I was delivering was way too comprehensible for the public, and for other artists.''
