Kanye West gets real in Steve McQueen interview

There's no telling what's in store for Kanye West in 2014. Recently, he sat down with Steve McQueen for Interview Magazine to talk about his past work as well as what we can expect from him in the future. The rapper goes way back with the "12 Years A Slave" director, who developed the visual effects for Kanye's VMA performance of "Blood on the Leaves." 

First, Yeezy shed some light on his creative process.

"I just close my eyes and act like I'm a 3-year-old," he told McQueen. "I try to get as close to a childlike level as possible because we were all artists back then."

'Ye noted that "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" was basically the climax and conclusion of the four albums that came before it. "Yeezus," he explained, was the start of him as a new kind of artist.

Finally, McQueen asked if Kanye had another 10 years left in him to keep creating art - and he responded "100 percent."

What do you think West will attempt to conquer next?
