If there's one thing that Kanye West is known for, it's his lack of humility.
Now, it seems that the rapper is sharing his knowledge with other friends and musicians teaching them how not to be - yes, how NOT to be - humble.
Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon generally seems like a nice, down-to-earth sort of guy, but he has revealed that a 'friendly argument' with his sometime collaborator West led him to view the world a little differently.
In an interview with The New York Times, he said: "“I got in a friendly argument with Kanye West about the word humble once. He said, ‘Have you ever looked up the word humble?’ I was like, ‘Actually I don’t know if I have.’ And he showed me the definition of it, and it’s far more self-demeaning, kind of the problematic Midwestern ‘Sorry!’ mentality, than I realized.
"I took a lot out of that conversation. Ultimately, I think it’s great to serve others and everything, but I think there’s a certain point where it’s diminishing returns for the people around you if you’re not showing up and being who you are.”
So there you have it, folks; when your favourite musician starts becoming an a**hole, you know who to blame.
