(The Root) — Kanye owned the Internet again on Wednesday with the publishing of an interview that the artist did with the New York Times. With the release of “Yeezus,” his sixth solo studio album, only a week away, Kanye sat down with Jon Caramanica to talk about his craft, his craft and his impact on music.

The interview, which “spanned several hours over three days,” seems to have been filled primarily with West talking about how amazing he is. There are some absolutely amazing quotables that could only come from West, such as “I am so credible and so influential and so relevant that I will change things” and “I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means.” (Click here for the Cliffs Notes.)

Whether you agree with Kanye or think he’s on some new, super-special kind of dope, the interview is truly a thing to behold, and Twitter had much to say about it.
