Kanye West Tells Rapper T.I. in Video of Creative Process: “Half the Sh*t Trump Does I Don’t Agree With”


Kanye West (surely you’ve heard of him this week) has posted a video of his creative process. In the video, rapper T.I. asks what it is that Kanye likes about Trump. West’s answer: “Half the shit Trump does I don’t agree with…The ability to do the impossible is inspiring to me.”

What’s interesting to me about videos and pictures of Kanye’s home and studio is that there is no art on the walls. There is also no color. It’s all beige or earth tones. There’s not a single poster, photograph, nothing, forget about museum art. There’s nothing personal at all. There’s….nothing.

This video is a very instructive look into what a lot of people feel is a creative mind.
