GIMME FIVE: A List of Icons, Legends & Greats According to Kanye West’s Quotes

Posted on February 11, 2009 with 7 Comments

With the recent news about Chris Brown and Rihanna‘s domestic abuse drama, Kanye West spoke out in support of his former tour mate.

Not only did he call Rihanna “my baby sis,” but the Grammy-winning rapper and producer went as far as calling her “the most important artist in music.”

And while we’re on West’s loose flattery, Blindie compiled a list of his prior hyperbole relating to his musical peers:


Kanye West on Beyoncé in December 2008: “Nobody really wants to recognize that Beyoncé is a f***ing living legend and that she is just as great, if not greater, than the artists that we had in the past…that she’s probably greater than Tina Turner.”


Kanye West on Justin Timberlake in August 2007: “My biggest inspiration and biggest competition is Justin Timberlake. He’s the only other person that gets an across-the-board response and respect level — black radio, white radio…We push each other. I look at me and Justin like Prince and Michael Jackson in their day.”


Kanye West on frenemy 50 Cent in January 2009: “50 is one of those rappers that I said was the end all be all of what rap what supposed to be. Like a true iconic rapper.”


Kanye West on Rihanna in February 2009: “Rihanna is so important to our culture, to pop music. I feel like she is the most important artist in music and has the most potential. Her taste level and her age … she has the potential to be the greatest artist of all time.”


Kanye West on Kanye West in November 2008: “I want to be Elvis,” he said during an acceptance speech at the American Music Awards. But days later he clarified, “I really should have thought that out more because that statement was actually really incorrect. Actually, the true statement was ‘I want to be better than Elvis.’”

REPORT: Chris Brown ‘Knocked’ Rihanna ‘Around’, Singer Suffers Black Eye & Bruises

Posted on February 10, 2009 with No Comments

As previously reported, Chris Brown and Rihanna canceled their appearances at this year’s Grammy Awards after being involved in a domestic violence battle with one another.

While both stars have yet to go public with their legal drama, photos have surfaced on the web, showing the two together in Brown’s rented Lamborghini minutes before the incident was reported to LAPD.

But a source close to the couple has spoken out, identifying Rihanna as the victim (Brown surrendered to LAPD on Sunday and was released on $50K bail).

“Chris knocked her around,” the source tells People. “Black eye, blood, bruises. She had to be treated by a doctor.”

While Rihanna is cooperating with police in their investigation, the source says Rihanna is willing to forgive Brown (who is described as “low-key, easy-going and mild-mannered” by a former teacher).

“I would be so sad if she went back to him,” the source adds.
