Kanye West declares himself the 'greatest human artist of all time' and promises he will become president

Move along, Shakespeare. Sorry, Michelangelo. Kanye West has declared himself the greatest artist in human history.

Ahead of the alleged release of his twice-delayed album Jesus Is King, West sat down Thursday for a wild two-hour interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, during which he not only dubbed himself the greatest musical artist — nay, the greatest artist of any kind in mankind's history, but decides this is now irrefutable.

"I am unquestionably, undoubtedly the greatest human artist of all time," West said. "It's just not even a question anymore at this point. It's just a fact."

West mentioned this while deciding that it was "God's practical joke to all liberals" for "the greatest artist in human existence to put a red hat on," referring to his support for President Trump, since this is apparently the sort of thing God has time for. "God is using me to show off," West also said at one point in the interview.

Apparently also now beyond question is the fact that a West administration lies in the American public's future, whether they like it or not. After previously announcing his plans to run for the White House, West stated as a matter of fact Thursday, "there will be a time where I will be president of the United States."

The consistently strange discussion also included West revealing that he asked those working on his new album to abstain from premarital sex, saying that he's "no longer an entertainer," and casually announcing another album to be released this Christmas amid skepticism that he'll even manage to release Friday's album. Vincent van Gogh could not be reached for comment on West's declaration.
