In a wide-ranging interview with Apple Beats 1 radio host Zane Lowe ahead of his new album, “Jesus is King“, West re-affirmed he “will be president of the United States.”

“There will be a time when I will be president of the US, and I will remember … any founder that didn’t have the capacity to understand culturally what we were doing,” he said.
The two-hour interview, which was released Thursday night, saw the unpredictable rapper chat with Lowe at his Wyoming compound.
“I am unquestionably, undoubtedly, the greatest human artist of all time. It’s not even a question at this point. It’s just a fact,” West told Lowe.
When asked about his controversial relationship with the current US President Donald Trump, West said: “For the greatest artist in human existence to put a red hat on was God’s practical joke to all liberals. Like, ‘No! Not Kanye!'”
Aside from politics, West spoke about his battle with porn addiction, which began as a child.
“For me, Playboy was my gateway into full-on pornography addiction.
“My dad had a Playboy left out at age five, and it’s affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life, from age five to now, having to kick the habit.”
But the rapper said Christianity saved him and it’s now his “job to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me.”
West’s views on sexual relationships are now much more conservative – he said he even asked people working on his new album to abstain from premarital sex.
West thanked fans Friday morning after the release of “Jesus is King” was delayed due to mixing issues. At the time of writing it has still not been released.
