Kanye West has backed down is his bid to become a rap god, insisting he was wrong to state he was taking "the throne of rap".
The outspoken 38-year-old has been keeping the social media world amused and bemused in equal measure with his Twitter ramblings ever since Valentine's Day (14Feb16), when he asked Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for financial help after claiming he was $53 million in debt.
As part of his plea he stated he had done "the impossible" and "retook the throne of rap" but days later, the star has taken the unusual step of apologising for his comments.
"Man, I was thinking about when I commented on the idea of ‘taking the rap throne’," he began. "That statement hasn’t been sitting well with me. That’s a dated mentality. I’m not on that. Every rapper is somebody’s favorite. A wise man should be humble enough to admit when he’s wrong and change his mind based on new information (sic)."

An 18 year old man sneaked backstage and left a note in Miley Cyrus' dressing room, which other stars have had to deal with obsessive fans?
Miley Cyrus has a fairly polite (but gramatically challenged) stalker. Instead of hiding in her dressing room wearing a ghostface mask and brandishing duct tape, he simply entered her dressing room and left a note. The note wasn’t even that peculiar, in the grand scheme of celebrity stalkers.
Tyler snuck backstage at Miley's Bangerz tour
Tucker Salvesen wrote to Miley: “I snuck back here I need to meet you. You have helped me so much your music has given me all the answers I was looking for when my heart got broke...we went through the same thing @ the same time...Miley I love you!!! Please let me meet you”. OK, not totally normal behaviour, but at least he said ‘please’. He’s also not been entirely stealthy about his impending plan to invade the Wrecking Ball singer’s dressing room, tweeting to her keyboardist “I’m probably gonna sneak backstage to see miley tomorrow...save me a trip to jail 1000 miles from home and help me out???”.

Furious Facebook.Com investors have filed a lawsuit against founder Mark Zuckerberg, alleging he knew the business had been overvalued ahead of its flotation last month (May12).
Zuckerberg floated his social networking site on the U.S. stock market for $100 billion (£63 billion) but shares soon dropped in price, prompting complaints from many investors.
Critics allege the Ceo knew the stock was overpriced and protected his own finances by selling off the organisation, according to Tmz.com.
Editors at the website report a lawsuit has now been filed against Zuckerberg, in which it's alleged the site did not generate enough revenue from advertising to warrant selling shares at $38 (£25), and that this information was passed on by Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan, and Goldman Sachs prior to the flotation.

Aaron Sorkin, the man charged with writing the biopic film of Apple mogul Steve Jobs life, has likened trying to depict the late electronics tycoon to that of trying to write about British rock group The Beatles. Ashton Kutcher will be playing Jobs in an independent film of Jobs' life, but as far as Sorkin's project goes he's been cagey about details so far - maybe because he's simply finding it so pressurising to write about him.
