Rolling Stone just released their cover story featuring Paul McCartney, who opened up about everything from the Beatles to Kanye West. When asked if he thought West was a genius, Sir Paul said that he regarded Ye as more of a “great artist.”

“I don’t throw that word around [laughs]. I think he’s a great artist. Take My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. I played it when I was cooking, and it was like, “This is good. There’s some really innovative stuff,” the 74-year-old musician remarked.

If you remember, back in 2013, West told Jimmy Kimmel that he was in fact a creative genius.

“For me, you know, I’m a creative genius,” West said during Jimmy Kimmel Live! “And there’s no other way to word it. I know you’re not supposed to say that about yourself. And I say things the wrong way a lot of times but my intention is always positive.”

West and McCartney have collaborated on three tracks together, including their 2015 hit FourFiveSeconds with Rihanna.
