"I believe in myself like a five-year-old believes in himself. They say, “look at me, look at me!” Then they do a flip in the backyard. It won’t even be that amazing, but everyone will be clapping for them."
"How many times have people taunted me because of a color that I had on or how tight my pants were? It’s nothing. I’m at the point now where I can go to ABC Carpet and spend five hours picking out sheets, ‘cause I love colors, like teal and taupe and salmon … When I visited Wayne at Rikers Island, I had a suit on with some slippers, and the guard said, ‘Man, those shoes are amazing.’ And I said, ‘Yes, they are. I’m Kanye West.’"
