Kanye West: “I Have 22 Grammys, But I’ve Never Won Against a White Person”

Kanye explains that he believes he has had a harder struggle to the top because of racism and he believes the battle isn't over yet.

T he rapper comments that despite winning so many Grammys, he has never won one while there has been a white person in the same category. He also says he has had to work much harder to be taken seriously in the fashion industry too:

“I’ve built a company that has value against all odds. Every idea I have, I have to do it, I have to stand by it, I have to win….I have 22 Grammys, but I’ve never won against a white person. I only win in black categories. Think about that. And another thing that’s disturbing to me is that when you work in fashion, because I have a ‘lower cred’ in fashion, sometimes I find myself getting bullied by creatives. People try to force their ideas on me or use me as a platform, to use me to get paid, to use my name, and also just to get their idea out. And there’s times where I reach my breaking point.”

He thinks his wife Kim Kardashian is like a modern Marie Antoinette and is changing fashion’s whole attitude:

“My wife is the face of the change of fashion, where designers who literally wouldn’t let her sit in shows are now making entire collections based off of her shape. It’s funny, for Kim to be photographed so much, [she] represents our modern day Marie Antoinette. She gets hair and makeup every day, not just for a photo shoot. Why? Because every day is a photo shoot.”

He wants to have enough influence to change the shape of the world one day:

“My heroes are people who have been in a position to shape our world. The influencers have been my biggest inspiration, and my biggest fight is to have this level of influence, this undeniable level of influence, and the fear of losing the influence before gaining the ticket to freedom. It’s balancing what it takes to become a celebrity—which is a very powerful platform as an influencer—but also to be able to say, “Hey, I’m an influencer, but I also have ideas,” which is sometimes hard for people to get past. Whenever I meet people, there are so many things that have been put in their mind about me, it’s hard to talk pass that.”
