'I was able to ascend to massive heights. And I've got to a point that Michael Jackson did not break down. I have reached the glass ceiling, as a creative person, as a celebrity and I've been at it for ten years.' 

And before releasing his latest album, Life of Pablo, earlier this year, he proclaimed the record to be one of the greatest of all time, comparing it to work by the likes of the Billie Jean singer, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Wonder, Puff Daddy and Jay Z.

'So many musicians touch my life and made me who I am... I want to make something great to honor my idols...(sic)'.
