Kanye West wants to be the ‘Obama of clothing’

Kanye West wants to be the ‘Obama of clothing’

Kanye West

Man, remember when Obama said something Kanye West? And then Kanye was all like “He’s just using my name for the sake of staying relevant” and you just wanted to scream something like JEEZ Obama! Stop name-dropping Kanye to further yourself, amirite? Totally! Well, here’s Kanye saying that he wants to be the ‘Obama of clothing,’ and OMG, really Obama? Why do you keep slipping your name into Kanye’s mouth? You must be really worried about becoming irrelevant, huh? Via Radio.com

Yesterday, Kanye West stopped by Atlanta’s V-103 (a Radio.com station) to talk about his recent fashion exploits, stating that he wanted to be the “Obama of clothing.” Kanye also talked about working with Louis Vuitton, noting that their decision to not let him, the Louis Vuitton Don, work in their factory, just set him back. ”I couldn’t get better,” he said, noting that even his rap game improved with practice. “Think about the way I rap on College Dropout versus the way I rap on Watch the Throne.“ He plans to get back to those factories soon though, proclaiming, “I want to be the first black person to go and design for Louis Vuitton consistently.”

Yeah, he wants to be the Obama of clothing! Except he hates Obama. And he wants to design exclusively for Louis Vuitton! Except oh wait, he told everyone to boycott them. Look, I’ll be the first to admit that as a musician? Kanye is a genius. But when it comes to everything else, he’s pretty much pants-on-hand dumb. Seriously, if you can’t even form a cogent analogy? Don’t bother.
