Who are Kanye's idols?

Kanye West has definitely had a major impact on the hip hop community, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been influenced by others, too - it's just not who you might expect.

Recently, the rapper has likened himself to the late Steve Jobs. In a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the rapper explained that he respects Jobs as both an investor and an entrepreneur - both roles that West has been starting to fulfill in recent years as he expands his career outside of the music realm. His dream is to make DONDA, his budding creative collective, a modern-day Disney.

"I know you're not supposed to say - compare yourself to other people," said Yeezy. "That's the only way I can describe it."

So who else does 'Ye worship?

He told Ellen that Jesus Christ and his own father are two men he aspires to be more like one day.

Do you have an idol?
