Kanye West's Three Hour Twitter Rant: What's That About?

Kanye West has always thought highly of himself, but in a new Twitter rant, West compares himself to Steve Jobs.

West certainly never seems to struggle with self-esteem issues, for sure.

He also appears to like to listen to himself talk (or tweet, in this case), as he spewed out a pile of nonsense on Twitter that included his upcoming business endeavors.

Over the course of three hours, West barfed up an endless stream of consciousness, and I'm betting even die-hard Kanye fans tuned out after hour one.

He managed to create a lot of attention for himself though, so all that blabbing wasn't completely in vain.

Though it was completely vain, Kanye style.

West said he's planning a new design company called Donda, named after his late mother who died during a plastic surgery procedure.

West claims that Donda will "pick up where Steve Jobs left off," and include 22 divisions of writers, DJs, publicists, designers, musicians, scientists, etc. working to "make products and experiences that people want and can afford."

As if that tells you little about the focus of his company, get a load of this bull ... his company will "help simplify and aesthetically improve everything we see hear, touch, taste and feel," and "dream of, create, advertise and produce products driven equally by emotional want and utilitarian need.. To marry our wants and needs."

To that end, Donda will release a "semi sci-fi" film called "2016 OLYMPICS."

West also sputtered some junk about becoming creative director of a Jetsons film and designing the MTV Video Music Awards.

West wants to do good, too, tweeting about "so many broken systems from the economy to school systems jail systems ... we need experts for this," and laying down the promise that he and director Spike Jonze "want to do a summer school that tries new forms of curriculum."

This all reminds me of when Josh Groban sang Kanye West tweets on Jimmy Kimmel. Looks like Groban will have some new material.
