7. Kanye says he wants to be the 'Tupac of fashion' during Power 106 radio interview Kanye West gave an interview on Power 106 and touched on a slew of topics, but a main topic of discussion was his journey to becoming a fashion icon. West was less than shy in calling himself "The most influential person in fashion of the last 10 years." He later added that he wouldn't call himself the best rapper or musician of all time. Instead, he would say Tupac was the best rapper, but noted, "I'll tell you one thing, as soon as I get it, I'll be the Tupac of this," in reference to fashion.
