When you’re the best, you get hated: Kanye West
After earning a degree of his own earlier this month from School of the Art Institute of Chicago, rapper Kanye West returned to school to give an inspiring commencement speech. West, 37, spoke to graduates at Los Angeles Trade Technical College and dished out some hard-earned advice, reported MTV online.
“When you’re the absolute best, you get hated on the most. It’s a tough world out there. You’re going to prepare yourself for politics, bad bosses, hating employees... Even for me as a successful musician, to make the transition (into fashion), it was really all but impossible. People really try to box you in to what they know you best for,” he said.
“The most successful artists are as close to who they were when they were five years old or four years old or three years old, or when my daughter wakes up and decides to change her career seven times a day,” he said.
