Watch Part One Of Kanye West’s Interview With Zane Lowe

Kanye West’s press presence has primarily been relegated to extensive blog posts and paparazzi fracas, but he’s given rare access to a handful of outlets, like the New York Times, W, his future mother-in-law Kris Jenner, as well as the ultra-steamy photo spread earlier this year in L’Officiel Hommes (NSFW). BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe has been given entrée to the rapper, too, and last week we heard a preview of their extensive Q&A, including a part in which West refers to himself as the “#1 rock star on the planet.” Now, part one of the interview has been unleashed and you can check it out below.
