Kanye West Covers TIME Magazine


TIME Magazine has revealed their 100 Most Influential People,” and topping the list is Kanye West, who is also on the cover with a profile written by Elon Musk. As Musk points out in the cover story, Yeezy “would be the first person to tell you he belongs on this list.”

In the article titled “Boundary Breaker,” West opens up about his beginnings in music, elitism within the fashion world, using negative things that happen to him as inspiration, giving with an unselfish heart, his legacy and more.

In a promo video for the list, Kanye says:

“Every time I crash the Internet, it’s like this little drop of truth. Every time I say something that is extremely truthful out loud, it literally breaks the Internet. So, what are we getting all of the rest of the time?”
