You need the money...
Kanye West sounded off on President Obama in a new interview with Power 106 FM this morning. Radar Online reports that the rapper spoke with the station about a variety of topics including Obama, his speech at Cannes this week and more. Check out the highlights:
On his comparison of himself and Steve Jobs: "Don't worry about how I'm saying what I'm saying. Look at what I'm saying and how I feel and how my intent is."
On criticism of his recent comments: "You do not want to go against the power. I'm working on one mission, and that's a mission from God. I'm gonna make it very clear exactly what I'm here to do. I'm here to help. I'm going to apply all the blessings I've got...We're moving to the future. [And] I'm gonna be the anchor."
On Obama: "You can't effect [sic] change from inside the White House like that . . . You gotta have the money...Good ideas usually aren't connected to money as much . . . Creativity and extreme genius are extremely cheap."
