Well, it's actually a new song of his, but still. Watch "I Am a God" below.
Kanye also talked about his relationship with Kim Kardashian saying that being with her sometimes "distracts him from that higher purpose." He also says that:
I fight in my position of being a very commercial celebrity boyfriend. I fight to push culture forward every chance I get.
In the Rick Owens furniture showroom, Kanye also told a crowd of 200 people that:

But the quote that took the cake was this:
