Nigga Please of the Week
Kanye West has branded himself the "most popular" hip-hop star, because other rappers turn to him for inspiration and guidance. The "Jesus Walks" star boasts he's become the leader of the hip-hop movement because he is one of the few rappers to criticize himself in his own music. West explains, "They look up to me for inspiration. They need me to be a shining light. "I'm cool with every single rapper, but my style does set me apart, though there are a couple of others who do have that same style. I'm just the most popular. "I guess, what does set me apart is that I rap from the perspective of coming down on myself. You never really hear that in rap. Rap is usually about putting everybody else down. I'm self-critical, that's what sets me apart. "
