LOS ANGELES (RushPRNews) 01/12/09--Yo! Raps Magazines reports that the latest development in Kanye West’s apparent effort to always push the envelope is his recent revelation that he would like to pose nude.
In West’s opinion, posing sans clothes would be the perfect way to “break every rule… of Hip Hop” and challenge America’s socially constructed norms.
“I definitely feel, like, in the next however many years, if I work out for two months, that I’ll pose naked. I [want to] break every rule and mentality of hip-hop, of black culture, of American culture,” he said in the February issue of Vibe magazine.
West has been the “talk of the town” lately, following the release of his Autotune heavy 808’s & Heartbreaks and run ins with over zealous paparazzi. According to him, posing nude would challenge these recent perceptions of him and of what hip hop is supposed to be.
“If she wanted to pose naked, you’d be like, ‘Oh, that’s Bjork.’ But if I wanted to pose naked, people would draw all type of things into it,” he said.
At press time, Ye had yet to give more details of his nude exploits.
