#YeezOx: Kanye West says he wants an award show for the Nobel Peace Prize during his lecture at Oxford University

It is definitely Yeezy season! Kanye West has been making his rounds dropping gems and hints everywhere! His most recent visit was in the U.K. at Oxford University talking to the students about a variety of things. The speech was only 20 minutes, which may not be a lot for someone like Mr.West, but he managed. A few direct quotes from the speech can be read below. The full lecture can be found here: http://oxford.tab.co.uk/2015/03/02/kanye-oxford-yeezox-highlights/

 

“My goal, if I was going to do art, fine art, would have been to become Picasso or greater.”

 

“I was joking with an interviewer earlier today…people talk about the number of viewers the Brits get, or the number of viewers the Grammys get. They need to do award shows for the Nobel Peace Prize, but I guess that doesn’t sell as many MasterCard commercials. Oh, I mentioned a brand! [looks disappointed]…I had two things…I was trying to get a flawless victory on my speech! No offence to MasterCard…but that was a big fucking logo in the middle!”

 

“Time is the only luxury. It’s the only thing you can’t get back. If you lose your luggage – I’m not gonna say the obvious brand of luggage that I’d normally say because I’ve got a meeting with them soon – if you lose your expensive luggage at the airport, you can get that back. You can’t get the time back.”

In the mood for some more classic Kanye…. press play:
