Kanye West is on fire!

Just weeks after his highly-publicized and record-breaking interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” the controversial creative “genius” appeared on a pair of radio interviews on Los Angeles stations 97.1 AMP Radio and Power 106 FM.

And as expected, Yeezy came prepared with a bag full of quotes and comments on an array of topics. Check out a few of our favorite quotes from Kanye’s interview below.

    “If I had the opportunity to design for Louis Vuttion now, I wouldn’t. Because the prices are too extreme. And I don’t want to use my message to have kids saving up that much to be a part of what the ideas are.”

    “React how you want. Any energy you got is good energy. I represented slavery, my abstract take on what I know about it, I wrote ‘New Slaves.’ So I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag. What are you going to do?”

    “Obama? Nobody’s looking at what Obama is wearing. I’m the No. 1 inspirational person in fashion.”

    “In music I talk a lot of stuff. But I’ll never get up here and say, ‘I’m the best musician’ or ‘the best rapper of all-time.’”

    “I love the Backstreet Boys — no knock to them — but there will never be another Backstreet Boys."

    "I didn’t have a phone for three years. When I got my phone is when I saw Kim on the internet with Kris Humphries.”
  • 7
    "You know what should be banned? Stuff that’s whack, not stuff that’s controversial. The world is controversial, classist, racist — so what."
  • 8
    “What would happen if I was able to design a collection that was backed by the Gap? It would be awesome, right?”
  • 9
    “I just thought of it. It seemed so all-American, I just love being American, you know, and I love you know, family… I feel so blessed. I feel God gave me exactly what I wanted, I have to do the right thing in God’s eyes. Just follow what God really wants me to do it will come ten fold by doing the right thing.”
