Inside The Artist's Studio - Kanye

Some technical problems, some dead air, but all in all, the guy gives some raw details on his influences. I like the Matisse part and the McQueen part. He clearly puts a lot of effort into his stuff. Sometimes its difficult to reconcile stardom with artistic talent.

He may not be humble, but he is a bit like Apple - the brand has some common themes, but keeps reinventing itself. It may not have been the first to come up with something, but it has polished these things, and made them user friendly. Weird comparison? whatever, I think it works. There's a compliment in there I swear!
