Did Kanye West Really Say He’s The Next Nelson Mandela?



Kanye West may have given the universe some of the more outrageous quotes in the history of man, but did the rapper really say he’s the next Nelson Mandela.  A website called The Daily Currant ran a story on Friday, attributing that remark and the following quote to Mr. West:

“Mandela was working in South Africa, which has, like what, six people? I started my magic here in the USA and then I took my business global … I liberate minds with my music. That’s more important than liberating a few people from apartheid or whatever.’”

The article quickly went viral, leading several bloggers and news website to pick it up. Unfortunately, The Daily Currant is a satirical website that made up the quotes for shock value and web traffic. Still, Mr. West might want to do some image rehabilitation if a website could make up quotes as outrageous as the ones in this article, attribute them to the rapper and people believe them.
