Kanye West Tells Zane Lowe More About His Fashion Struggles


In case you hadn’t yet caught on, Kanye West is mad at the fashion industry. In part three of his in-depth interview with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, Yeezus continued his rant at designers and brands. In fact, there wasn’t much else he talked about.

“You don’t realize I am so frustrated. I’ve got so much I want to give — I’ve got ideas on color palettes, I’ve got ideas on silhouettes — and I’ve got a million people telling me why I can’t do it,” he said. Kanye even used the cherished ‘College Dropout’ to illustrate his frustrations with the fashion world.

With all this effort going into trying to make it as a designer, where does the music fit into the equation, you beg? “I spend 80 percent of my time working on [fashion] and 20 percent of my time working on music,” Ye revealed. He did break down to fans how they could get their bear-loving hero back, though:

All I need is the breakthrough, the joint venture for my clothing. Same as Stella McCartney has, I can name so many people that have joint ventures and backing to be able to express themselves that way. Okay, bam, I need that outlet. And then you’ll get things closer to ‘Watch the Throne,’ you’ll get things closer to ‘Bound.’

Expect thirty thousand messages on your answering machine by the morning, Nike.
