Mr. West is not the only person to believe that he has made a significant cultural impact. Andrew Wyatt of the Swedish band Miike Snow applauded Ye as well in an interview with Billboard.
“Who’s the most relevant artist now? It’s Kanye, he would never do that. I think he is the most important artist of our time. I don’t think there’s any argument,” stated Wyatt.
He added, “Even Kendrick Lamar’s career is basically taken from [Kanye’s] ‘Jesus Walks.’ Listen to ‘Jesus Walks,’ sounds like what Kendrick did on his last album. I love Kendrick, he’s awesome, visionary, but Kanye was kind of there first.”
Frequent Kanye collaborator Chance The Rapper recently praised his fellow Chicago native as well. The “All We Got” performer referred to Ye as the “greatest artist of this generation.”
