Kanye West does not believe U.S. President Barack Obama when he talks about bringing change, raising his doubts in a recent interview questioning how the President proposes to effect change from inside the White House.
"You can't effect change from inside the White House like that …You gotta have the money," Kanye said during an interview with Power106 FM, according to Daily Mail.
However, he later contradicted himself saying good ideas are usually cheap."Good ideas usually aren't connected to money as much …Creativity and extreme genius are extremely cheap."
Calling himself a creative genius, West said that he is constantly being misunderstood, and said that people should focus more on what he is saying instead of how he expresses himself.
"Don't worry about how I'm saying what I'm saying," he insisted. "Look at what I'm saying and how I feel and how my intent is."
And for people who criticise him, West has a few words for them as well: "You do not want to go against the power," he said. "I'm working on one mission, and that's a mission from God."
"I'm gonna make it very clear exactly what I'm here to do," he continued. "I'm here to help. I'm going to apply all the blessings I've got."
During the interview, West did not hold back when it came to criticising the president, who, the rapper said, was not being able to deliver what he promised during his two terms.
The beef between West and Obama goes back a few years, when the President called the rapper a "jackass" for crashing Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV VMAs in 2009. A few years later, the President once again said that West was a "jackass," but a talented one.
Later, West dissed Obama in a concert rant stating he does not "give a f**k what the president's got to say," and Obama hit back claiming that pop culture and the Kardashians were responsible for altering the American Dream.
"Kids weren't monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success," Obama told Amazon.
