Kanye West Compares His Job To "Like A Police Officer Or War" [Video]

The latest in Kanye West's long-line of soundbites of idiocy has come from an interview the rapper gave for SaturdayNightOnline radio where he not only over-inflated his own career, but insulted the thousands of civilians who are serving in actually rather dangerous jobs.

Though it may be said that when you take into account hood-related violence and shootings, a career in rap isn't exactly the least risk-prone but once again the pompous Yeezus has put his foot in it. West's hilariously shocking and often offensive goofs of late have included singling himself out as "the number one rock star on the planet," saying insensitive comments about black people, Jewish people and money, and describing himself as "like Hitler" to reel off just the tip of the iceberg of classic Kanye-isms.

West was quizzed on his recent remark that he saw his life at the moment as "like The Hunger Games." He rather coherently explained that with the intense media scrutiny his family are under, life can feel a little like The Hunger Games, not to mention his opinions of the filtration system in the endlessly competitive world of rap to fame and fortune.

Things started going downhill with the radio host Garrett asked whether this meant Kanye was planning a revolution. This may have been the injection of pomposity that was needed to send Kanye over the edge into full-blown soundbite territory. The rapper was soon comparing scaling his new stage set - a modestly-sized "mountain" - to the same challenges civilians serving in the police or armed forces experience every day. "I feel like it's not just a performance," the 36 year-old performer said.

"I'm just giving my body on the stage; I'm putting my life at risk, literally! When I think about when I'm on the Can't Tell Me Nothing, and Coldest Winter moment, like that mountain goes really, really high. And if I slipped. You never know. And I think about it. I think about my family and I'm like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, or war or something," said Kanye.

"You literally going out to do your job every day knowing that something could happen to you, verbally from the press bashing you [...] or people not liking you, or you could slip on that stage," the rapper elaborated, effectively pulling the pin, throwing the grenade and leaving the room.
